Default 7 Pound Regain in month of April

Boy am I mad and frustrated. No one else to blame but myself. I have been here a million times.

I guess I am looking for words of encouragement and advice.

I was so happy to get down to a 4 year low weight. Why I fell of the wagon immediately after I got to feeling so good about myself just kills me.

I had a good day one today though......

I had too good a time at the Japanese Buffet (all protein and veggies however) and put on 4 lbs between weekly weigh-ins. A few days cutting dairy and protein back, and having a bit more leafy greens has taken most of it off.

Well, we all fall off that frigging wagon. For me, it has happened way too many times to count. BUT.....the important thing is, you learn to stop the fall quicker and quicker and get back ON the wagon. That way you minimize the damage. I've been bobbing around in the low to mid 140's for months now, and while I'm happy that I have more or less stabilized in this range, my bad eating behavior does tend to slowly get out of hand, with a result that up I go again. I've just gotten better at monitoring myself and not letting it go too far when I've got carb or sugar creep. In past years I could go months, years without paying too much attention to reversing it. Now I mostly just go days before I get myself in hand.

As of Monday I'm back on strict plan and when I do this right, it works so magically. This is why I love Atkins. Do it right, you see results, and that's always encouraging.

The key thing I now understand about myself is that my continued success rests on keeping non-Atkins foods out of my house entirely. I know I should develop willpower, and to a certain extent I have, but I just know myself too well and realize that if the junk is here, I'll eventually succumb to eating it. No way around that, I'm sorry to say, but at least I know how to make this work.

So for you, a 7 lb. regain in a month is more than a bit of typical bloat. I would consider it a sign to get back to basics and be consistent with that for awhile, and the weight will come off quite nicely. It's CONSISTENCY OVER TIME that works best. I've seen this over and over.

The road to weightloss is bumpy. We're bound to fall of the wagon now and then. It's how soon you get back on the wagon that matters. If you get up, dust yourself off, and take a running leap back on the wagon, it's a lot easier than staying down, letting the wagon get several hundred feet or even a mile ahead of you. Right? I picture this like a cartoon in my mind. I'm always running and leaping when I fall now.
