All I can think about are pancakes. Big fluffy chocolate chip pancakes dripping in butter and syrup! Forget all the other cravings I was having, when I reach the 20 pound mark, I'm going to Ye Ole Pancake House.
One month ago today I started Atkins, and one trying month later, I'm down 15 pounds! (Well, the start date can be disputed, due to the whole cupcake thing. But that would put me AHEAD of the one month mark!) So only five more pounds to go before I can eat my pancakes.
I'm pretty darn happy with the results so far. I'm at the point where I think all eggs should turn into the chickens they were meant to be, and anything wrapped in lettuce can go jump in a lake, but if I try hard enough I’m still able to put together a totally satisfying and tasty meal. I found some really awesome low carb breads, and bacon and ranch will always be my BFFs.
Today also begins the four week countdown for our flight to Brazil. If I can lose another ten before then, I'll be ecstatic! I’m still about 500 pound away from wearing a bathing suit, let alone a bikini, so I certainly won’t be fitting in like a local on this trip. Not that I could ever really fit in, with my lily white skin and lack of fashion sense. I just want to be comfortable in those itty bitty airplane seats that we'll be stuck in for 17+ hours!
