The other day in a post about Ralph, I mentioned an uplifting family event on the horizon which I could not yet discuss in detail. Well that celebration — my sister Carolyn’s Surprise 50th Birthday Party — took place this Saturday night and it was fabulous! In another post I will detail my party planning, [...]

Atkins Diary — 14 Weeks Down!

I’m still going strong on Atkins, though this cold/allergy thing has really hung on and depressed my appetite this past week. So while I never actually broke down and ate any of the “comfort foods” I typically crave when not feeling well, the only “cheating” I did was not eat as much as you’re required [...]

Atkins Diary — 13 Weeks Down!

I’ve reached another milestone in my re-commitment to the low-carb lifestyle, moving beyond three months and into the beginning of the fourth, still as energized and excited as ever! The only downside this week has been catching some sort of bug which meant dealing with a sour stomach and sore throat for the past few [...]

Scrumptious Saturday: Seven Delicious Low-Carb Snacks

| May 19, 2012 | Comments (0)

I am loving being back on the Atkins low-carb lifestyle for over three months now. It’s satisfying, healthy, easy to follow and best of all — it actually works! And for anyone concerned about the prevalence of diabetes in their family tree, it can also help prevent or manage that condition. Although I’ve been happily [...]

Wow — I am so excited to have finally reached this milestone! Twelve weeks/three months of adherence to the Atkins plan after recommitting myself to the low-carb lifestyle in front of my “witnesses”, my mom and sister. It definitely feels great! When I first started publishing these weekly updates as a way to hold myself [...]

I am happily cruising right along, noticing subtle changes in my clothes and generally enjoying the low-carb lifestyle. So for this week’s update I decided to post five things I love about the Atkins diet: 1. Distinguishes Between Good Fat and Bad Fat – When I first did the program back in 1999, it was [...]

Happy May Day! Amazing we’re already into the fifth month of the year, with summer just around the corner, so  it’s a really good thing I’ve made it through 10 consecutive weeks on the Atkins plan — something about being in double-digits is inspiring me even more to stick with it. Even though unlike 1999, [...]

Here we are in the last week of April already – the showers are bringing May flowers, temperatures “up north” are rising  and I’m still going strong on Atkins after vowing to get back on the program to my mom and sister this past February. Actually the closer we get to summer, the more excited [...]

Wow, it’s hard to believe eight weeks have passed since I vowed to my mother, my sister and myself that I was going to get back to the only diet that has ever worked for me — Atkins! With each week that passes, I am noticing significant improvement, aided no doubt by the practice of [...]

So yes, I have now made it through seven weeks on the Atkins diet — with one (ahem!) caveat: I did fall off the low-carb wagon this past Easter Sunday. Which I will rationalize is quite understandable, given the fact that it was a holiday and yummy foods and once-a-year treats like Easter Bread were [...]

Well, I’ve made it to the five-week mark on Atkins, and I am starting to notice significant improvement. No, I haven’t stepped on the scale (yet), but I have slipped into clothing that was formerly either too tight to put on or simply too uncomfortable to wear. I am not quite into the suit Maris [...]

Four Weeks on Atkins!

Wow, it hardly seems possible that an entire month has passed since I recommitted myself to the low-carb diet that worked so well for me over a decade ago. And it’s just as easy to follow now as it was back then, although with my birthday taking place last Wednesday and another celebration this past [...]

I suppose time flies when you’re eating delicious low-carb food because it hardly seems possible that Mom and I have already completed Phase One, the two-week induction period of the Atkins diet. Just as I remember, once the first few days of sugar-withdrawal pass, you start to feel great. And in spite of giving up [...]

Manic Monday: The Great Surprise, Act of Valor and Atkins

| March 5, 2012 | Comments (2)

Ah, Manic Monday once again! Hard to believe it’s already March 5 and we’re blessedly well on our way to spring; I’ve even spotted a few daffodil buds on my parents’ front lawn, which is pretty exciting since I am desperately missing the ubiquitous greenery and tropical flowers of Florida. Anyway, things have been busy around [...]
