So I started up on Atkins again yesterday.... low and behold I lost weight when I weighed this morning. I don't know what it is about that diet, but I like it. It is like a simple science... cut the carbs... I lose the weight. I can count calories... live with in all the boundaries spark set and I don't lose a thing! I gain!

I hear many people say it is not sustainable... but it is. Just like any diet, you chnage your eating habits. When a person cuts their calories and loses weight... they have to keep with it or gain it back. I believe last time I did this I was up to 70 carbs a day and was still losing weight... who knows how high my body would have let me go... I just lost it and forgot about the maintaining period once I lost 30 pounds.

Yesterday was a serious low point for me. On my days off... I absolutely obsess. I cried because I gained 3 pounds after putting so much hard work in. I am not looking forward to work tonight.... but I do like being busy where I don't have time to think about food.
