    GlitteryFriday's Low Carbing

    Hi everyone. I'm not doing strictly Atkins but the low carb board seems so dead quiet I hope you don't mind me joining here - I'm still doing low carb-ish - just not as strict as Atkins.

    I cut out sugar, chocolate, cakes, biscuits, pasta, rice, bread 1 week ago - and I feel amazing! I've felt so much less bloated and more energetic and positive.

    I have to say my skin has been horrific - so many breakouts I've never seen anything like it! But I read it can often be when body starts letting go of fat and the fat cells are full of toxins that are making their way out - I like the sound of that!

    So far I'm down from 17st 3lb (!!!) to 16st 10lb.

    I generally have an omelette or a Quest bar and coffee for breakfast.

    Then a salad/veg with chicken/fish for lunch and then same for dinner only switch the protein up so if I had fish for lunch I will have chicken for dinner and vice versa.

    I try and drink lots of water, I'm terrible at drinking water but I am trying hard. I'm also roughly counting calories too, I know many people say you don't need to but as I am entering my food on MFP anyway to see my carb intake and macros then I might as well keep an eye on my calories too!

    So I will try and post here every day to keep me going - so far I have not felt weak once! Which is a miracle as even with calorie counting when I had my daily target as 1800 I could not stick to it. I think however that because I'm not eating any sugary stuff there's nothing I can have that would make me go over my calories! (I don't feel like snacking on more bacon, ham and eggs when I feel the need to munch!)

    Any buddies/friends are very welcome - would love to have people doing a similar thing to share the journey with! ?

    Welcome sounds like you got the hang of it! A few of us don't do strict Atkins and watch and cals too. I'm terrible at drinking water as well but feel so much better when I do.

    Thanks lovely!

    Weighed this morning and I'm 16st 8lb! My first full week of low carbing - DONE!

    So happy.

    Today I had a Quest bar for breakfast, coffee and a small Salami snack (25g).

    Hope everyone is having an amazing day!

    Hi Betty and welcome

    I'm not low carbing any more either, although I did lose two stone at the beginning - but I love my bread too much so am on calorie counting and (thinking about doing) exercise.

    I found what really worked for me was keeping things simple - protein and veg - and lots of leafy greens, at that - plus glugging the water.

    Sounds like you are going great guns - a great week one loss! So keep it up and keep posting here - I know it seems quiet at the moment but it's probably just people being away (like me, just got back yesterday).
    Susie

    I have the power I need to change my life. There is nothing stopping me from doing this - and I am learning to love myself and believe in myself.
