Yeah, that was a bad idea. From october 1 to december 12 i dropped 62 lbs and felt pretty good at 230 and still wanted to reach 200 by july 12 ( my wedding ). i went on a christmas vacation and told myself i would jump back on atkins when i reciprocal....... boy was i wrong.
i gained 20 quick pounds in the first 30 days i was off the diet and then tacked on another 14 in the following 2 months to balloon me back up to 264. ( still 28 lbs less than where i started back in october )
On march 10 i said enough is enough and have been perfect for 17 days and i am well on my way back to my wedding day goal of 200. Before i sleep tonight i am 245 which is 19 lbs less than when i started just 2 and a half weeks ago. i am determined this time to stay with the plan all the way through my goal. It ' s just a little sad that i ' m still 15 lbs heavier than i was at my lightest back in december.
Also if my math is correct i put back on half of what i lost in the same amount of time i was on the diet. So technically if i lost 100 lbs in 12 months i could eat whatever i wanted and how much i wanted for the following 12 months and only gain 50 back right? [ / icon_biggrin. gif]
