Great job on your two weeks ! You may want to wait on the dieting thing. Your body really needs nutrition from real food right now. It also needs to feel rewarded. That is what the dopamine system is really for. I would not skimp on carbs right now either. I would wait until day 30.Just my two cents. I am one of the people who always gained weight on opiates because food actually tasted better and I would eat a ton. I know some people lose when using because they think not eating prolongs the effects. Anyway hang in there and try not to deny your body anything that it craves at this point. It needs the nutrition. YES on the exercise though but just be careful .I thought I was an xgames athlete and ended up shattering my right arm at age 40 rollerblading LOL it still hurts ;)
YOU GO GIRL! ROLLERBLADE your way into a happy healthy new you! YOU'VE GOT THIS!
Thanks All! I was on the Atkins Diet for 6 years.... ended up abusing it and NEVER eating carbs! Was down to 112 lbs and I look too skinny at 120 lbs. b/c of my bone structure. The carb diet is what I'm doing this time but I'm treading lightly this time... Just seems like I'm NEVER full right now and I want to look at the top of my game for interviews. A passion of mine is rollerblading so on my time away i'll be bringing them with me and try to get back into it. Rollerblades and MP3 player are so theraputic to me in the past!!
This is a great post! I recommend eating lot of veggies, fruit, and chicken. Lean meats are good. Snack on carrot sticks (more veggies), etc.you can eat all the veggies you want! Great job for getting healthy! You're doing great!
GIRL FIRST AND FOREMOST CONGRATS ON YOUR HARD WON 2 WEEKS. IM PROUD OF YOU! GOOOOD JOB! SOUNDS LIKE YOU ARE DOING GREAT! I WENT ON THE ATKINS DIET AFTER I HAD MY SON AND LOST ALL OF THE BABY WEIGHT (57 LBS) IN THREE MONTHS. I HAD SO MUCH ENERGY AND WAS NEVER HUNGRY BC YOU CAN EAT WHATEVER N THE HELL YOU WANT EXCEPT CARBS. IF YOU SWING BY THE ATKINS WEBSITE YOU CAN GET A FREE CARB COUNTER AND DIET PLAN... IT'S SUPER EASY AND THE WEIGHT JUST MELTS OFF. IF YOU HAVE ANY CHOLESTEROL PROBLEMS THIS DIET WOULDN'T BE GOOD FOR YOU BUT OTHERWISE I CANT PRAISE IT ENOUGH.
