It'sbeen a while since I posted. I happily lost another 3 lbs. last week. My brother and sister-in-law both lost 4 lbs. My sister lost 12 lbs. in two weeks. My husband didn't lose anything this week but he didn't gain. My friends are struggling so I bought them each books that show carbs in foods. Hopefully that will help them. I am recommitting to Atkins and even more importantly recommitting to God. I finally went to confession and mass. It was beautiful and peaceful. Today I decided to give up my beloved diet Dr. Peppers for God. Not a tiny sacrifice for me as they were my favorite thing to eat or drink. It was my consolation present when I didn't cheat. I've also been praying every day tto love God with all my heart,soul and might. Which to me partly means becoming less attached to worldly things hence the Dr. Pepper vow. I've also decided to volunteer at a charity resale store to do more for others. God is also helping me work on my slothfulness. Lots of vices to clear up here. I am a work in progress.

I had a bad day today.probably over 40 carbs. I ate numerous sugar free candies and I''d already had 20 carbs. I missed my Bible study and seminar because I had a bad stomachache this am. Then I was trapped without a car and with a fussy dog on a rainy day. I ended up stir crazy and depressed and did what I have so often done - turn to the food. Fortunately I am not out of sugar free junk which will help me tomorrow. I just hope today doesn't blow my whole week. Saturday is weigh in and I have my food planned for tomorrow so that should help. Oh I could havle gotten on line forhelp but I didn't think about it. Maybe next time. I am disgusted with myself. Its hard when you do pretty good all week then blow it on one day. My weight is right around 200 lbs. That is where I got stuck for a while the first time I lost weight. Well I can't correct my past so I will just have to do better tomorrow.

I did Ok with my food today only 20 carbs so far but have dinner and 5 more veggie carbs to go. I did eat 3 small sugar free candies not high in carbs but not a good habit for me. And 4
diet sodas don't know why they are so hard to give up. Just a minute ago I enticed I had typed I ate 4 diet sofas. Ii guess that would have been hard even for me to do. I don't know how tto make a diet sofa anyway - no stuffing? I read a buddy's s heartfelt cry for help today and it really reminded me how much I want to stay on Atkins for life. I'm have tried so many other plans but for me this has worked the best. I did go back to the carbs for no good reason and regained 35 of the 80. Lbs. I had lost but I am just grateful I kept the rest off. There are so may more important things than those carbs - like staying off dialysis,, keeping my eyesight and limbs,, staying out of a wheelchair, not having a heart attack. This time I have been helping 5. other people do Atkins and it has helped me tremendously. I am vain enough to want to wear size 14' s or even 12's so I can wear some cute clothes but truly what I am doing is saving my life and trying to help others save theirs. Fortunately I have not been too hard on myself about regaining the weight. I just have to learn some things I didn't. Learn last time like how to cook. I am so relieved to be back on ATkins.
