This Atkins thing, as difficult as it has been, is ridiculously efficient and successful. Maybe too successful. It is because of it’s effectiveness that only after a month on the diet and being a trim 167 lbs, I am ready to ease my way off of it. Doing so, I’ve been slowly introducing carbohydrates back into my diet.
It felt sooooo good to finally sink my teeth into breads and crusts and sweet stuff for dessert. One of the items I used to celebrate the successful dieting was a tummy-pleasing buffalo flat bread pizza with lots of Lucky Dog Extra Hot Fire-Roasted Pepper Sauce.

Do these upstarts get my thumbs up and delight my taste buds? Well, read on, fellow foodies…
Yes, I have been truckin’ along on my weight loss/fat loss journey using the Atkins method. I have been on it since Monday, February 3rd; and although it’s been extremely difficult at times, it has proven to be very successful.
I’ve since lost another 6 lbs. since my last report, allowing me to hot the “magic” 170-pound mark, and enabling me to wear a pants size below the one I had currently been weighing.
I’m always having to refer to my list of national food days that I have on this site, and I found out that today is National Chili Day! While October is “officially” National Chili Month and the first week of that month is National Chili Week, the fourth Thursday in February has been deemed to give the spicy meat stew it’s own special day!
