Never retain water on weigh-in days

Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

I ate a large amount of sodium yesterday and today at TOPS weighed in with only a 2.5 loss (which is much smaller than yesterday morning). Still, a loss is a loss at TOPS, and so far I have an all no-gainer streak!

Good news

The good news? In the last 7 weeks, I’ve lost 40 pounds!

That’s pretty incredible-sounding, but some weeks were relatively low losses. Weight loss is not at all linear, or I’d be 100 pounds down by now.

My husband? He’s so proud of me, he made a spread sheet. That’s right.

He showed me my curve. I told him it was a plot. (a little humor there).


I am going to be incorporating more recipes and apologize in not doing so sooner. With the kids moving towards the end of the year, and looking at home school for one (while sending another back to school).

Right now, I have to start planning dinner. These folks around here are funny about not getting food. I mean REALLY!

I tell them, “Dude! I’m BLOGGING!” Do you think they care? Oh, nay!

  1. HELP!!! I went on Atkins Induction for two weeks and have hardly seen a budge, although I have seen some inches. I also checked to ensure I was in ketosis (I was). I have been off and on for years; I’m wondering if I’ve created a monster. In the past, Atkins seemed to be the only thing that worked for me. I’ve got 20 to lose (constantly for the last 8 years). I’m struggling. What are you doing that is giving you such success? Please help!

  2. Hi, Susan! I do exercise, which has helped me this time around.

    If you’re in ketosis, you’re doing well, especially if you’ve lost inches!

    How many pounds do you have to lose, and how many did you lose in induction?

  3. woo hoo Cleo congrats on the 40 pounds gone forever.

    And my chart shows you weigh a head 😉


  4. Congratulations on the great milestone!

    I’m in a stall the last couple of weeks, but it wont last forever –
    until I pick up again, I just live vicariously through you! 🙂

  5. I am so confused Cleo. How many blogs do you have? There seen to be a few. I am trying to find the one on Linda’s moon buns. I am lost as to where to find it.


  6. Low-carbwise, there’s just this blog. Linda was joking about the oopsie rolls looking like little moons.

    They’re just the oopsie roll recipe.

    Sorry for the confusion. :oO
