Saw this on MSN this morning..... Remember our discussion on how much salt we are taking in ...how much....is it making me retain water?.... so...
FWIW:

The other nine foods that round out the top 10 (in order from 2 to 10) are: cold cuts and cured meats, pizza, poultry, soups, sandwiches, cheese, pasta dishes, meat dishes (such as meatloaf), and snacks like chips, pretzels, and popcorn. While high levels of sodium in snack food isn't a new discovery, some of the other foods on the list, like pasta and poultry, may surprise some people.
The CDC report states that the average American consumes 3,300 milligrams of sodium per day before adding any extra salt from the salt shaker. U.S. Dietary Guidelines suggest a maximum of 2,300 mg a day for the average person and even less for groups with high blood pressure, chronic kidney disease, and diabetes.

Wow, that is interesting. I had no idea that we were consuming approximately 1000 mg more than the guidelines.

The DW and I will do a modified Atkins over an 8-10 week period to drop 15-20 lbs. before our cruise. We did it by the book 3 years ago and I dropped 25lbs in a 10 week period. 205-180!!! 2 pant sizes!

We are more focused on our portion control during the year to keep it more realistic. We also allow ourselves a little here and there to keep our sanity in check.

More veggies... Less junk... Watch the portions...

My first time in this thread... Time to see if anyone has any secret recipies for snacks.

Exclamation ***caution***

I did Atkins from Jan. 2 to the day before we sailed in 2007 and lost 26 pounds! I didn't have *hardly any* sugar for 3 months! I also exercised and dropped two sizes ... I felt great and ready to conquer the world! (ehhh ... well at least ready to conquer the Caribbean!) ... anyway ... we got on the ship and I TRIED to be good and not go overboard with the sugars, sweets, starches, carbs, etc., because my body was not used to it. However, I DID overdo it ... and by the third night of the cruise, I was SOOOOOOOOOO sick. I spent the entire night in the bathroom. My husband was in the cabin next door (long story, but we booked interior, side by side cabins = was cheaper than 4 people in one room .... duh ... double the space, two bathrooms = no brainer) ... anyway ... he's a paramedic and I almost woke him up because I was in so much pain.

So, my advice to you is ... you might want to reintroduce some of the foods you have been avoiding PRIOR to cruising unless you plan on continuing to avoid them during your cruise. Seriously. It was a night of H.E.double hockey sticks!

The Atkins/exercise worked though ... here's a pic of me and my son with my smaller waistline ... (yes, I have some work to do before we cruise again in June! )

Fell off the wagon this weekend in the carb department. Back on I go tomorrow. Some days are just like that. I blame the fact that I ran 8 miles (4 against the wind) in 28 degree weather Saturday. My body thought I needed to pack on fat like I was living in the Arctic. It is either that or the fact that the Girl Scout cookies were delivered. One of those two

I'm back today from a week on the Mariner of the Seas, and it was fantastic! I used the stairs exclusively and tried to be very active every day, but it was harder with the kids there. My weight gain for the week was 7 lbs, and I'm hoping at least five of that will come off as water/glycogen storage in the next couple days. We'll see where I'm at after a week back on induction...

Hey Jean!

I'm hanging in there, even though I ate at a buffet 4 nights in a row. Long story.

Andrea, you crack me up! And I'm very impressed with your running!

Welcome back, scotte! It makes me a little green (with envy), but you'll probably be well on your way after a week on induction. I wish things would work that way for me. If Voyager keeps going out of N.O., I hope to sail her someday in the not-to-distant future. But with going to Disney, possibly France, San Antonio, and a fall family (cheap) cruise this year, I think I'm done for 2012.

Happy Thursday!.... Middle end of the week.... How are ya doing?
I went for a long walk last night...it started getting pretty chilly out! As I was headed home, I looked up and saw one of those light air things flying around...one seater kind. It was cool!

It's been a crazy...different...kind of week for me! I'm busier then usuall at work, which is good...but also feeling like there are life changes in the works for me. I'm one of those that find the fun side of a lot of things...and then I find myself doing so many things, that I'm really not enjoying or doing a good job of them! Time to cut back on some things!! I already eliminated about 1/3 of my closet 2 weeks ago! If it didn't fit and look good, out of style, not my color ...etc... out it went!! I have to say that when I get ready for work and take something from my closet...It fits, I like it...and it looks good... HOW WONDERFUL IS THAT!! HAHA!

Scott...welcome back... I hope your daughter is being the task master on getting you back on track and your seeing results!
Lisa... FRANCE!!?? We were in Marsielle... last year... so much fun!!
Andrea...got those shoes close by?

Have a great day everyone!!

Wow!! It's been over a week since I've dropped in here!!

HOW are you doing? What have you been doing?

I ventured out on my WOEX....and took a couple of Zumba classes this last week.
I think that they are a lot of fun, it's through our Parks & Rec and so it's in a room that has carpet I don't know how many of these I'll take...it kinda kills my left knee! However... a new dance studio has opened up in our city - and I saw that they offer these classes too...so maybe I'll check that out!
We are starting to have signs of spring!! No sillies...not flowers or showers!! Allergies...and the Wind!!!! I have to have a way to keep moving and it doesn't mean outdoors...unless the wind is calm!

This will be a quiet weekend for us....but after having 3 busy weekends....whew... I'm ready for it!!

For the Cruisers that all went and are back.......................are you on track?

Did not read all the post but figured I'd share when I saw Atkins. In 2009 I paired dietary supplement Xenadrine with Atkins and went from a size 10 to a 4 in 3 weeks. If you try this, you must be in good health and follow both diets to a T.

Default I'm Back and Back on Atkins!

It's been awhile since I've been on these boards, but I have a totally awesome Panana Canal Cruise booked for 2013 and I want to loose 75-100 pounds....I found lots of support here before and am hoping to reconnect and make new Atkins buddies again.

Happy Thursday Folks!!

UGG...I am just getting over a crazy tummy flu..... back at work today...but not moving fast!

Hey Little Miss....are you still in 4's? That was some pretty dramatic dieting you had going on there! Are you still low carbing?

Swansonia... welcome back! Great to hear that you have a cruise to look forward too! Re-read the book...you have a big journey ahead of you... be informed! You can so do this!... What is your exercise routine?

I missed my Zumba classes this week....really....they wouldn't have wanted me in there!

After I was home a couple days I feel off. I thought I could give myself ONE night off. It turned into THREE days and SIX pounds Back on I went. Spent the day driving to and from a funeral acroos the State. I think I did OK. I have to do strick induction for the next two weeks to turn this thing around.
If I can do it on the ship, I sure should be able to at home. I'm taking the grandson to Disney in April/May and I have to get back into the summer cloths I was wearing on the ship.

I too found great support here before and that is why I'm back here. Also my surgeon wants me on Atkins. They just don't call it that, bad mouth Atkins and than that is the diet they have me on. Go figure.

It drives me nuts when they do that!

I'm heading to Disney at the end of the month, as a chaperon for my daughter's band trip. I have a lot of firming up to do by then! I've begun decorating cakes--a deadly hobby to take up, but as of last night, I might actually be sick of the taste of buttercream.

The good news is that my gym is having a March Madness challenge with prizes for people who take 20 classes this month. I'm all over it. Time to get nuts! Nuts are good for me anyway.

Well I haven't gotten the strips to change colore again. But, the scales stopped going up and inched down a little today. The DD did a traditonal T-day dinner tonight. She called it a mid winter dinner. I did great except I did still a tablespoon of mashed taters. Bad thing is my body will know!
