Weight Loss Diary: 6/15/12

Sorry I haven't posted in a while Guys!! Here's a past entry from my weight loss diary. Enjoy!

185 lbs.
35 lbs. lost- 25 to go

WOAH! 5 lbs. lost in one week is crazy for me!! It usually takes me about 2 ½ weeks to lose that weight. Here’s why I’ve dropped:
I officially started the Atkins diet last Saturday, so it’s been almost a week. Basically the Atkins diet is a very low carb and low sugar diet that is great if you have a lot of weight to lose and you want to lose it relatively quickly. I’m not completely sure why this diet gets so much crap, because it does work. People gain the weight back when they don’t gradually add carbs back to their life and they don’t cut back on calories. This diet has 4 phases, and I’ll be on phase one for another week or so. The first phase is restrictive, but you really don’t miss all the carbs once you get going.

Something I wanted to write about is how I still feel like a fat person sometimes. I’ve come a long way, but I still see the back fat and the fat on my thighs, stomach, and arms. I know I have about 30 more lbs. to lose, and I’m completely motivated to get there now that I’m on this diet. I still feel weird when people meet me for the first time, because I know they just see me as some fat chick. They don’t know how far I’ve come and how far I’m gonna go. I just want to tell people “Don’t look at me! I’m fat now, but I won’t be for long!” I can’t wait to be semi-normal. I know I’ll never be truly normal because of my weird yet fun personality, but I just don’t want to be judged on the amount of fat that’s attached to my body.
