After a weekend in Las Vegas, I was sure I would kill my diet. I managed to eat on-program for two of three days, stopping only on my final day to eat deep fried macaroni and cheese balls, a reuben sandwich, and a Philly cheese steak sandwich. Additionally, I drank all three days, so I'm not surprised about my weight gain, but it could have been so much worse.

height: 5'9.5"
weight: 168.8
bmi: 24.6
gain: 2.2

I would like to be around 164-165 by the time I leave for Peru next Tuesday. As for the month, I'm down 7.2 pounds since I started, which isn't bad at all. If I can lose 7 pounds a month, I'll be at my goal by the end of the year with plenty of time to practice maintenance. Hopefully I won't be too challenged during my Peruvian adventure (two weeks!) but I'm planning to buy and bring some Atkins snack/meal-replacement bars in case I run out of options, but I figure if I constantly eat my favorite food ever (salad, nom nom) and stay away from rice and other grains, I'll be good. I'm going to try not to drink very often, although I may partake in some delicious wine while I'm in Lima. I'm going with a group of drinkin' gals, so I'm sure my motivation to stay off liquor while I'm in Lima will be zilch - it will be much easier to remain on-track while I'm staying with my host family in Cuzco.

I can't wait! I'm still partially packed from my trip to Las Vegas so I don't have much to worry about. By the way, my photos from Vegas are horrible. I look chunkers in basically all of them. Gah.

About the Eggbeater

I'm a recent college graduate, working three jobs, still attending classes for a second degree, and currently enrolled in a grueling LSAT prep course. I was born and raised in the Rocky Mountain area of the United States, and I live here with my family and 85-pound dog-ter.

I've always been kind of up-and-down with my weight: my lowest weight of all time was around 148 pounds, but didn't stay there for long. My highest weight in my entire life was 190 pounds, but I've been in the 170s for quite some time now.

Aside from being a motivating tool to garner results, this blog is an attempt to prove that even as a busy girl with three jobs, school, and a dog, I can find the time and motivation to make the Atkins lifestyle work for me.

My starting weight on 6/3/2010 was 176 lbs. My goal is 144.
