I am getting frustrated with not losing the weight! Yesterday at 179 and today at 177. I did walk last night with NO running as my knee feels like it could snap in two! I am hopeful I can reach an all time low by the end of the week. I am still in size 12. I have been eating mostly salads all week. My garden is in and I have been picking lettuce regularly. I am having lots of food cravings right now! Especially for salty foods. I even went out to a mexican restaurant. had NO chips and had a salad in place of re fried beans! I have been allowing myself to have some phase two snacks ( peanut butter cups and a cinnamon thing) They help curb my cravings. maybe I will have better news at the end of the week.

Since I last checked in. I am still on the diet although I felt it was losing it's effectiveness. I see to have been getting stuck between 175 and 177 so I decided to take a binge day and start it all over again. I did this two days ago. Still at 177. And I did enjoy the 2 lindt chocolates I had! I did not seem to enjoy the other stuff I had. Seemed like I was just eating for the sake of eating I guess. I think my attitude on how to eat has definitely changed! I am walking still, however my knee has been giving me great pains. No more running I guess. Hopefully I will see 173 again by mid week!

Today I was craving some chips in a big way! The one downfall of this diet is that there is not a lot of ready made food to snack on. You have to make everything from scratch! Thank goodness for the Atkins bars! They are a quick snack that fills me up! A nice surprise though.. I am at my lowest weight when I weighed myself tonight! Hmm does this mean I will be at an all time low in the morning? We will see!I have also been walking with a little bit of running!
This is a personal victory for me! I have been battling size 14 most of my adult life! I treated myself again to a couple of outfits that did include size 12 capris. And no they do not feel like they are going to cut off my circulation. But I tell you what they do.. These size 12 capris and shorts make me realize I still have a ways to go! before I was wearing roomy pants that I needed to pull up now and then. Now my tummy is right with the pants. Not feeling so slim anymore!
I have been walking more in the evenings. Even taken to running ( just a bit). Nothing make you feel more out of shape than running! But at least I am doing it!
I am also considering another binge day. My weight has been going back and forth between 175 to 179. Think my body is getting used to meat cheese and veggies. When I think about what I would like to eat, nothing inspires me much. Which is weird, because I love food! Maybe I will feel different tomorrow..
