Im back.. I can not explain the intensely insane 18 months I have had. It has taken its toll.  I had  great day of eating and am feeling good at the end of the day.

Dinner was pork chops in the air fryer with Cauliflower rice and butter. So yummy! Saved a pork chop for breakfast.

I start Atkins like I always did in the beginning. A few days of minimal carbs working up to 10nc and then a slow progression to 20. I am a slow starter. So for me this plan with plenty of water helps me jump in and feel better sooner and also feel the progress because once over the “flu” I can feel my energy jump and Ill start sleeping better.

I am coming of WW trying to Atkinsize it but failing. For me if the option of a cookie or chips is there, I am going to eat it. I need things to be off limits at least in the beginning.

I did ww for a year. lost 23 lbs and it all came back. Atkins I lose better and I lose the cravings and stay the course better.

Tomorrow is grocery day and I’ll be stocking up on all the things I love with a few treats so I can keep my focus. One of my favorites is sugar free jello whipped with heavy cream and some cream cheese. It is a nice little treat after dinner for me.

I need some butter, fresh meats, fish, riced cauliflower, and spinach.

I’ll be browsing my own recipes to make a shopping list so that I’m good to go. I hope you are all doing well and enjoying life!
