No pop, no snacks, nothing after 7pm. I actually downed 125 ounces of water today, which I believe is also the number of times I had to go to the bathroom today.

I ate a couple of low-carb thickburgers from Hardees and a frozen dinner today.

My goals at the top of this page aren't my expectations for by the time of the cruise. My hope or goal by the cruise, would be to be down 20-30 lbs, which I think is possible.

No pop, no snacks, nothing after 7pm. Water intake started off good, but only about 75 oz for the day. Breakfast was a Hardees breakfast bowl. Lunch was pasta. Dinner was an ayce buffet. I ate a large amount of food at the buffet, but no pop and no desserts, so it wasn't as bad as usual.

I really wish weight was like most everything else, and you could buy your way out with money. I know there's liposuction, but the whole idea gives me the willies.

Things at work have slowed down some now, so I really don't have many excuses for screwing up on my diet plans right now.

No pop, no snacks, nothing after 7pm, not too good on water intake. Lunch was KFC buffet. Dinner was a hamburger, beans, and salad.

Today went fine. I almost had a couple of pops today (but didn't). I almost accidentally grabbed one with dinner over at a friend's house. You just get so used to grabbing a pop that you don't really think about it. I really wanted an A&W root beer with lunch; the KFC shares a building with A&W.

Starting again as heavy as ever. My wife sprung a surprise on me for my birthday......a week long cruise. Only 77 days before we set sail. I need to shed a few pounds by then.

No pop, a couple of snacks, not much water intake, nothing after 7pm. Lunch was a big plateful of chinese food. Supper was a big plate of spaghetti & ravioli. Not the best day, but I did make it a whole day with no pop, which is amazing.

Life's been good......except for the weight. It doesn't tend to bother me, but I'd still like to get back down to at least below 200 again. I'm starting another diet once again on 8/18/2004. I've been putting it off for awhile, like the whole summer. I didn't want to start this weekend, because we were going camping with a bunch of friends and didn't want the hassle. Plus, with this group of friends, I'm actually the lightest male there. Going through the weekend, I did get a look at my future if I don't nip this weight gain in the bud. A couple of the guys are in the 350 range. They still had plenty of fun and everything, but we had a couple of jetskis and they basically had to ride by themselves most of the time, unless giving a ride to someone in the <100 lbs range.

It's kind of weird, the weight doesn't usually bother me and I don't think that my friend's weight tends to bother them either. We're all in our early 30's and pretty active at get-togethers, but we all also have terrible eating habits and are mainly sedentary during the week at our jobs.

Oh well, back to the future diet discussion. My wife's parents are up from Kansas for a couple week vacation and they leave early in the day on 8/18/2004, so I figure that's a good day to start the new diet.

I'm not sure what I'm going to do this time. I've had good success with a few different ways, but I'm not sure how much misery I'm willing to endure ;)

I do know that I'll be going with no pop, no snacks, over 100 ounces of water, and nothing after 7pm. I guess the only thing I have to decide is if I'm going to go low-carb or not. I guess I've got a couple of days to figure out my initial plan of attack. With the surge of low-carb additions to some of the local restaurant menus, maybe it'd be easier this time to try low-carb......

It's funny to see the male mind at work (most of us are females) - a spreadsheet and everything!! Good luck with your weight loss endeavors!

No pop, nothing after 7pm, 125 ounces of water, 20 carbs, and 1210 calories. B - 2 eggs and 4 slices of bacon. L - 4 ounces of smoked sausage and salad w/ bacon bits and no carb dressing. D - Chefs Choice hearty beef stew frozen meal.

Day 4 of Atkins done and over with. I still have a low level headache. I've really enjoyed the couple of Chef's Choice frozen dinners I've had over the past couple of days. Depending on the meal, they only have 9-11 carbs, so it's still doable and come in at only 20 carbs for the whole day. I just wish they were a little cheaper. I've only found them at the local Walmart and they run just shy of $4.00. Today I went and picked up a few more to try and grabbed some Budget Gourmet frozen entrees for my wife. The Budget Entrees were only $1 each. Oh well, I guess the Chef's Choice are still cheaper then going out.

Great job! Sounds like you have found something that works for you. To bad that the meals have to run us broke though. Have a great day!
