The Dangers of Reaching Your Goal Weight | Atkins

Colette's Blog

November 11, 2014

Hello! How are you? Tell me what’s been going on, I want to know! What was the highlight of your week?

I’ve been on Atkins now for about a year and a half, and there’s no question about it, it works. It’s fast, it’s not hard, and if you follow the plan you’ll reach your goal weight.

I’ve spent so much of my life thinking about losing weight and reaching my goal weight, but I never thought about what would actually happen when I got there! Until I got going on Atkins, I don’t think I even considered that reaching my goal weight was a real possibility. It was like Johnny Depp, a distant fantasy.

But when I got to my goal weight I fell right into a trap. Relaxation. If I was at a party and they were serving sliders, I wouldn’t bother to take off the bun. If it was one of the girls’ birthday at The Talk, I’d have one of the cupcakes they brought in. I was still on track with my meals, but I started giving myself more leeway with the rules.

My sugar cravings started to creep back in, and I couldn’t stand it. It didn’t feel good! I had to wean myself off sugar again and get back to following all the rules. I love the way I feel living the low-carb lifestyle, and I never want to turn back.

I saw how slippery the slope could be, and was reminded that my old habits would bring back all the old feelings. Stay away from the trap and off the slope!

All my Love and Support,

Sharon
