Ten pounds that is. That is the number of pounds I have lost as of today! What a feeling of accomplishment to get on the scale and see that magic number! This means that in 5 more pounds I will have lost 10% of my intended goal.

For breakfast I had 2 fried eggs and 4 slices of bacon and 20 ounces of water. This is a typical breakfast. Lunches have been anything from tuna unwiches, egg salad, salads, hotdogs, etc. For dinner, bunless cheeseburgers, steaks, pork chops, meat loaf etc.  And for snacking: pickles, cheese, deviled eggs, pork rinds and an occasional Atkins Advantage bar. Of course there are many other meats, vegetables and such, but I didn't feel like listing every single thing.

All this, and in 18 days I have melted away ten pounds of fat. I cannot tell you how awesome I am feeling because it is beyond me. I am simply NOT tired like I was before. Energy is still at an all time high! And I have to add that I appreciate all your feedback and support. Words of wisdom, Congratulations, Keep up the work and just the occasional how are you are things that make me smile and drive me to push on. A big THANK YOU and cyber hugs to all my friends and followers who are here for me, YOU ROCK!

  4. I have just started doing low carbs and I found your blog!! I am super excited to follow you in your journey! As I am reading your posts I am seeing all the same things for me. Can you tell me what ketosis is? :) Keep up the good work!!

  5. Congrats to you ~becky~, and thank you for following my blog. Ketosis, simply put, is when your body burns your fat for energy instead of carbs. "By restricting carbohydrates drastically to a mere fraction of that found in the typical American diet, the body goes into a different metabolic state called ketosis, whereby it burns its own fat for fuel. Normally the body burns carbohydrates for fuel -- this is the main source of fuel for your brain, heart ,and many other organs. A person in ketosis is getting energy from ketones, little carbon fragments that are the fuel created by the breakdown of fat stores. When the body is in ketosis, you tend to feel less hungry, and thus you're likely to eat less than you might otherwise."

    Hope this helps some. Happy Low Carbing!
