    OK...I'm starting this in hopes of getting me through the entire week....I do great for Monday - Thursday and I totally fall apart on Friday to Sunday. It has been sooooo frustrating... I 'm not losing weight because I'm totally adicited to sugar and carbs....I'm starting over today and I'm planning on making it through this weekend.....Maybe if I can Journal publically it might help my get through the really tough cravings....

    ANd it's not that I just eat a little somthing >>>>I munch out on everything I can get my hands on....and this weekend I had 2 cokes and I felt like....crap the rest of the weekend...but that didn't stop me.....

    I'm going to take it one day at a time this week and will post in my journal to get me through.....

    I think the cokes have been the hardest thing for me since I started. I know that I can do it though. I have previously went a whole year without any carbonated drink. So I know that it is possible.

    I'm hoping that this is going to be the toughest week for me and it's almost over anyways. I've had some pretty bad headaches from the lack of caffiene, but I know in the long run my body and my health will thank me for it!

    Best of luck to you! You can do it!!!!

    A few more hours down....cravings have begun again....I'm going to drink more water to help....It doesn't help that my DD's bday cake is still on the counter....trying to get the kids to eat it as quick as possible....Who would have Guessed that 16 12/13 yr olds would only have eaten 3 piecesof cake.....i bought a 1/2 sheet.....So, four days later we still have cake.......but I've been able to skip it all day so I'm hoping for the rest of the night as well.....



    WATER, WATER, WATER......

    YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!! You made it through the day! Now you know that you CAN DO IT!!! You have to keep that in mind ALLLL day today. Keep telling yourself, "I did it before, I can do it again. I'm living proof that I can choose a healthy tomato over empty calories of cake!"

    GOOD FOR YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I crack up reading your posts- you sound just like you're in my head!!! I've never been one for alcohol but I used to pour a little champagne glass full of coca-cola and savor the sugar! I haven't had a "real" coke since March and the only advice I have is to just AVOID them like the plague- if I had one then I'd probably have another and another! :)

    You're doing great and your attitude is the tops! You can master those carbs!! Strawberries are in good season right now- they are a great sweet reward and I think allowable on the 2nd phase of Atkins- can't remember what you're doing but knew you're cutting back the carbs. Good luck and lots of WISH support headed your way!

    If you need sweet, do the sugar free jello! It'll stop those cravings! It helps me a lot. I didn't know the sf candy was ok on induction. I thought it had to be used after??? Do you know for sure?? ALso- Katholyn told me she would just cook up a bunch of bacon every morning and just nibble on that all day for snacks as well. She sent me a list of snacks that were good for induction. If you want- I'll send it to you as well. You sound like me- I don't eat in the morning, but love that food for afternoon and night! KEPP UP THE GOOD WORK- I'm feeling your pain too!!!

    You can do it Kimball...just a few more hours. I am about to head to the kitchen for some water too. Try a cheese stick, or cucumbers with dressing. SUgar free jello with real whipped cream is good too....

    hugs...you can do it!!!

    Are you doing Alex's challenge? You know you can do upto 20 carbs right? They have not found that no carbs makes people loose weight more than 20 carbs...a few more carbs may help the sweet tooth.


    Hugs sweetie...you are doing well...Keep it up :) DO what is best for you and don't worry about anything else!
