Before I had children, I was always looking for things to do. Going on diets was a great way to pass the time. Now that baby is here, I have zero time to fill with other things (I know, life is tough). It had been a while since I had set out to apply some discipline to my eating habits, but I think it’s time.
Without further ado, I’m happy to introduce my latest adventure into the realm of deprivation: the Atkins Diet.
I did the Atkins back in 2004 for a month; the goal was to reach a super trim goal of 105 lbs, which I did! I know it doesn’t sound like a healthy weight, but considering my height, you’d be surprised to know that 105 still falls within the normal level of BMI, so don’t worry, I’m not striving for starvation here. Just daydreaming about seeing that magical number on the scale which we all have in mind (think about it: what is your perfect weight?).
Anyways, it’s time to get back on it. It is day 1 and I have planned my meals for the next 3 days until I can go shopping again. Shopping was super expensive (some of those sugar supplements ain’t cheap!), so there’s the first tip.
Now, we track track track!!! Wish me luck!
