    Kat1e's Diary - 3rd year Atkinsversary

    I've decided to start a diary to help keep me on the straight and narrow!

    So today Tuesday 4th January 2011 is the first day of the rest of my life.

    I have:
    read the book - tick
    read the stickies - tick
    set a target - tick
    met some lovely people on this board - tick
    started - YES!

    Thanks for all the advice so far and I hope you will continue to help me - so please go ahead and jump in if you think I've missed something or have any ideas to help.

    I have a feeling I may be on here a lot........


    ---------------------------------------
    Edited to include my first ever Minimins post on 3rd January 2011 - to complete the story

    Baseline & advice for newbie
    Hi everyone, nice to meet you. I am just about to start Atkins and would appreciate some advice.

    First some background: 42, mum of 1, was always happily curvy when younger at 90kg, then post baby 100kg but a cuddly mummy, went on the scales today and it's 112kg which is BMI 37.4 (5ft8)

    OMG - how did this happen! Being feeling pretty rough after eating & drinking far too much over xmas - read the atkins book 2 days ago and fairly convinced this sounds reasonable. Did a run around my kitchen and can see that carbs are my problem. Have borderline BP problems and pretty convinced that health probs will follow shortly

    So.....great I know I need to start. I've tried the odd low calorie diet in the past but I cannot give up enjoying food and wine plus anyway hardly lost any weight. Also recently upped my exercise but just an excuse to eat more pasta.....!

    So the advice I need please:

    1. target weight - I am thinking of setting 90kg which is still a BMI of 30. reason is that I can remember being happy and healthy at this weight, have some beautiful designer clothes that I refused to throw away plus this seems in reach.
    Does this seem reasonable? Should I target a better BMI?

    2. short term weight goal & speed - I am going on holiday beginning of april and would be great to have a shorter term goal that is realistic assuming this is a lifestyle change not a crash diet. What would be reasonable as 3 months on atkins lifestyle?

    3. I am not a dieter as believe they make you fat - but then look at me. So hoping that you can help me change habits & give me support

    Thanks all
    Katie

    Good thinking Katie.

    I think having your own diary is a grand idea But Vicky's right, it will get hijacked from time to time

    Ok fair enof, i will expect hijackers then! :-)

    So end of day 1, feeling ok but tired (due to lack of sleep last night)

    DH has agreed to join in with me which is great as he does all the shopping and cooking so could be tricky otherwise! However, he doesn't need to lose much weight and I noticed he was already grumpy that he couldn't find the right food on the tesco shopping site...this is definitely going to be about changing habits and lifestyle not a short one off.

    So today:
    B bacon & eggs
    L chicken & salad
    D venison steak with creamy mushroom sauce & broccolli (ok venison might seem a bit excessive on day 1 of diet but was the only unadulterated meat i could find in freezer!). Hopefully gets DH interested too
    S cheese, remnants of earlier meals (bacon slice, was some chicken left, then some venison - made good snacks and ready and wtg)

    I have 3 bags of food in the hall that I need to drop around to my parents and SIL tomorrow plus planning a run around tesco to restock the cupboards more appropriately

    Roll on day 2!

    Sounds like a good first day, Katie, and great that DH is joining in!

    Don't forget to look at the latest list on the Low Carb Contest thread for a list of the lowest carb food we could all find

    Your day 1 has been a good one Katie! Yum menu.

    Don't talk to Vicky directly please - it only encourages her, and then it takes aaaaaages to get her calmed down again.
