Thursday, September 23, 2004 AD Creamy or Chunky? One of the low-carb products I've found that I like reasonably well is Skippy Carb Options Peanut Spread. Only I made the mistake of picking up the chunky version this time. Chunky's fine on a sandwich with jelly, but when I'm eating it straight from the jar, I want creamy.
Recent conversation with a Person Who Shall Not Be Named:
PWSNBN: Oh! You're on Atkins?
PWSNBN: How's that going for you?
PWSNBN: The thing with Atkins is you've got to spend a lot of money -- buy extravaggant things like paté.
Me: I thought I was being extavaggant buying all-beef hot dogs.
Actually, "lousy" may not have been fair. It's going slowly. In about two months I've lost 20 pounds. (I was going to wait 'til it was 25 to announce anything, but I got impatient.) That's 13 in the first two weeks and up and down and up and down and up and down on the next seven. If I'm only going to lose an average of a pound a week, this is going to be looooooong diet.
The great news, though, is that I'm having less trouble sticking with it than with any diet I've done in the past. I'm also feeling generally better since I started it. I take Sundays off from dieting as a feast day, which may be slowing down progress, but it's keeping me sane. If I'm craving something taboo, I can tell myself that I can wait 'til Sunday. And usually I can, so cheating's been at a minimum.
P.S. Cindy R. -- There's no need to hate me yet. I'm probably still fatter than you! ;-) Posted by Valerie (Kyriosity) at 9/23/2004 07:17:00 PM
