Setanti's Progress - Year 2

Morning guys! :wavey:

I've recently switched from CWP Sole Source to Atkins. CWP was good. I've dropped 51lbs but I'm getting to the stage now where I want to start exercising well and bulking up my muscles a bit. I really think my body's telling me it needs a few more calories!

I've followed Atkins successfully before, but got into the steak and burgers cycle, I didn't drink nearly enough water and I dropped back into old habits. CWP got me into drinking 3-4 litres a day and it's now ingrained.

I've jumped ship partly because of Jim's inspiringly excellent maintenance record and can see myself living a low-carb lifestyle indefinitley once I've lost this last couple of stones.

Exercise-wise, I've done the C25K program a couple of times recently but found myself falling asleep all over the place so I've put my running on hold for now. I've just started the P90 program :character00116:, and would love to get through P90X some day :rotflmao:. I also train Aikido two or three times a week.

I've loved reading through all your posts and look forward to sharing success with you all in the future. :D

think hes trying to confuse us ladies ;)

Morning ladies & gents! :wavey:

Hahaha, I certainly didn't mean to confuse. Please forgive a recovering geek! :ashamed0005:

CWP = Cambridge Weight Plan
C25K = Couch to 5K running plan
P90 = The Power 90 Boot Camp
P90X = The nutter's version of P90

Anyhow, day 3 finds me without yesterday's headache and still eternally grateful I can eat food again! :eat:

I'm about half-way through re-reading the 1992 book and have regained that feelgood factor about this program. :happy036:

Well the little white stick has detected a medium excess of ketones being expelled in my urine. I'm certainly not dehydrated so it appears my body's made the switch from lo-cal to lo-carb! :party0049:

My new WI day is Tuesday so I'll be delighted to see a loss, but I'm prepared for a slight gain 'cos of the switch. Ooooh, the anticipation! :D

Morning all! :D

I broke my MIM duck last night! It's quite a ride isn't it, what with the exaltation as the muffin rises above the rim of the mug :party0049: and then the crushing disappointment as it all collapses to only half the size when you open the micro door. :doh: :roofles:

Still, I got 4 slices out of mine and had them slathered in butter. Really only 3 carbs? Wow! :eek:

I'm trying the legendary cheeseburger pie tonight with cauli mash and butter, so I'll let you know how I get on.

Have a good LC day, peeps! :gen126:
