Today, my husband and I are in Day 8 of doing the Atkins diet. We are in the stage called Induction where for the next 2-3 weeks, we limit the number of carbs we have to less than 20 a day. I was tired and sluggish on Day 2 as the last of the sugar left my body. I caught stomach cramps on day 4 because I wasn’t hydrated enough and I hit the wall on Day 6, and commenced to lay out in the floor and have a tantrum because I was tired of eating eggs.
Day 7, I got my ass on the scale.
Talk about a reality check. Talk about embarrassment.
I am at the largest weight that I have even been in my adult life. For real. *Antoine Dobson voice*
I’ve always been a curvy girl with lots of booty and thighs. I really started gaining weight after I turned 30 and got on the Depo Shot. Then I guess I just started eating
way too much. But I wasn’t really tripping because even though I was getting a tad bigger, I was still getting some play. And I always dressed cute and kept the shoe game tight. Hell, I even messed around and got married. LOL!!!
But that scale right there, playa, that scale right there……..plus my aching back means playtime and my delusional thoughts are over.
This is not going to turn into a weight loss blog, so please don’t get alarmed. I will probably give ya’ll an update once in a while. And I will continue to dazzle and amaze with food pics and recipes (that are more Atkins friendly) so you may be all drooly about the mouth area.
But me and that number on that scale are about to get REAL un-friendly.
Please believe it.
