Monthly Weigh in

Although weight loss was very slow during the first half of the month.. I ended up losing 12 pounds for the month. During the first part of the month I was eating pecans everyday because I bought them in bulk at Costco. I stopped eating any Atkins bars, and I swore off artificial sweeteners hoping that I could increase my weight loss and be even more healthy eating all natural snacks (pecans, strawberries etc) however, that was not the case. I started eating Atkins bars again, about a week ago.

In conclusion, I have decided that I will reintroduce nuts on a daily basis when I am within 15 lbs of my goal. Until that time I will not swear off them but will eat them sparingly. At that time I will also go more (LC) whole foods. As for artificial sweeteners, I will still eat them sparingly, however, I have about 50 packs of crystal light and 20 packs of Jello (sugar free variety) I will use them. But when they are gone I will not replenish them. I have found a drink mix that is sweetened with Stevia that will be here shortly for me to try. I will do a product review, Iwill also do product reviews on Atkins bars.. but it seems Atkins is doing another flavor change and some of my favorites are no longer offered. I only have about 30 bars left from my original purchase back in January.
