Romak's Journal, 03 February 2010

These are things I know: (about myself)
1.) I'll lose a lot the first week, 4 pounds, maybe even five. I might lose a pound or two the second week, then things slow down for me. I have to remember this, know it's normal, know it works, know it's good for me!

2.) I have to stay away from Russel Stover's sugar free chocolates and Atkins bars and shakes. Maybe I'm one of those people that can't fool my body with sugar alcohols. I have to remind myself of this when I'm passing them at the grocery store!

3.) I do well if I give up coffee.

4.) I do well with a MIM every morning as long as I drink my water.

5.) Water nauseates me and makes me feel empty if I'm not thirsty so I do better if I take it with food. I have to drink my water, though.

6.) Vitamin with no iron.

7.) Exercise helps me keep my metabolism going, even if it's walking, but for me it has to be intense.

8.) I do better if I prepare, cook meats, boil eggs, chop veggies.

9.) I've never been very good at OWL, and when I've tried Atkins before, I've done so well in Induction that I tend to stay there. I need to learn about OWL this time. I don't know my Carb level for ongoing weightloss or for maintenance. This time I plan to find out.

Thanks, hippichik. I'm going to a bookstore this week, so I'll check it out.
