Weigh-In Day

Happy Sunday!  I lost 2.2 pounds this week!  That means I’m only 2.2 pounds away from my next goal of losing 12 pounds in 12 weeks.

While I’m happy with this loss, I want to try to slow down my weight loss to a healthier clip, around one pound per week.  I am not yet eating enough carbs, so I have to consciously try to increase my carb intake to slow down.  My goal is to eat around 25 carbs per day, and even with adding in a few non-Induction foods, I averaged 14 carbs per day this week.  Whoa.

One issue is that I haven’t been able to find my two favorite low carb foods, macadamia nut butter and Fage Total Greek Yogurt.  Where did they go?  I think my local grocery stores stopped carrying them once I stopped buying them in bulk due to my recarblapse.

I have a few more stores to check before I give up completely.  In the meantime, I know I can increase my carb intake by eating more veggies.  Asparagus with homemade hollandaise sauce, here I come!

Weigh-in Day: Bye-bye Induction

Happy Weigh-in Day!  I lost exactly one pound this week.  More importantly, I met my first goal: make it two full weeks of Atkins Induction without “cheating” on myself.  Woohoo!

I’m actually shocked I did it.  It’s not that I’m not resolved to do this, it’s just that I miss a couple of my favorite Atkins-friendly foods that aren’t allowed on Induction, namely macadamia butter (who wouldn’t miss that?!?) and Fage Total Greek Yogurt.

My next goal is to lose 12 pounds in 12 weeks of Atkins, so I only have 4.4 pounds to to lose by the end of April.  My underlying goal is to average one pound of weight loss per week, so I should be well past a 4.4 pound loss by then.

I’m heading to the grocery store.
