Hi friends!

Welcome to my little corner of Al Gore’s Internet. I’m Jareesa - I’m a scientist, a freelance writer, a knitter, wife to LM, mom to #BabyPi, and more. I love Queen Bey, squishy yarn, watching GBBO, and attempting to bake. Sometimes I rant, sometimes I rave, but I always tell the truth.

Atkins Day Five

Today is my 5th day on Induction. So far so good.

I have not cheated once, I am so proud of myself. I plan to stay cheat-free and have a clean 14 day Induction. Yeah, I've thought about things that I'd like to eat, but I haven't indulged because I figure when I get closer to my goal I can have a little of that stuff then. I'm depriving myself a bit now so that when I have the body I want (or at least I'm close to it) I can have a little of the stuff I love.

Yesterday I weighed myself and I was down 2 pounds.

This morning I finally got some Ketostix to see if I was in ketosis, and my strip turned purple which means I am. Good stuff.

I also have ZERO appetite. I had to make myself eat lunch and dinner yesterday. I don't get the growling stomach or hunger pains anymore when I haven't eaten in a few hours.

Tuesday is day 7, and I'm going to weigh again on Wed morning to see how much I've lost.
