Thoughts on Weigh Day Eve #2

May 26, 2011

I have reached the end of week #2 in my new lifestyle and am anxious to see what the scale shows tomorrow morning. I’ve done pretty well this week, maybe too well. I’ve actually had a little difficulty eating enough calories.

Now, before you go hatin’ on me, keep in mind that I’m doing the Atkins induction, so I think all the protein is keeping me feeling full. Plus I’ve been super busy and sometimes forget to eat lunch until it’s like 3:00. So then I combine lunch and supper.

But I know it’s not good to not get enough calories, for a couple of main reasons: 1) I don’t want my body to think I’m starving it and start holding on to the fat, and 2) I am exercising an hour a day and I need strength (believe me, I need strength!). So I’m trying to be more conscious of eating smaller meals or snacks throughout the day.

I went to the Atkins forum and got some suggestions on what to do; some of the other posters there have had the same problem. I’m going to go to Wal-Mart and get some Atkins shakes and bars for those times when I need something fast.

I am hoping to see a 3-pound loss tomorrow, although like last week, anything would be good. It could conceivably be more than 3 pounds again because it’s still early in my regimen and I have a lot to lose. But I don’t expect to see high numbers much longer, if at all.

So I’m not dreading weigh-day yet, although that feeling probably won’t last! No matter what happens, though, those numbers will not make me slow down or give up.
