Atkins Low Carbohydrate Diet - Weeks 37 to 49

I have now been on 'Lifetime Maintenance' for a little over three months. My weight on Sunday 23rd May was 63.4 Kg (139.8 Lb), a reduction of only 1.3 Kg (2.9 Lb) since 22nd February, when I last blogged here about this. My overall weight loss since I started this WOE on 15th June 2003 is 34.6 Kg (76.3 Lb) - that is almost 5 1/2 stones!! Measurement indicators for the last 13 weeks:
- waist down a further 0.7 inches to 30.2 inches (total reduction 14.8 inches);
- hips down 0.5 inches to 37.5 inches (total reduction 11.0 inches);
- thighs down 0.3 inches to 21.4 inches (total reduction 7.1 inches)

I'll write here again briefly about my 'Atkins' experiences after another 3 months or so (probably at the beginning/middle of September 2004). Meantime my aim is to keep my weight more or less as it is now. I consider myself very fortunate to have discovered the 'Atkins' method of tackling the perennial weight problems I have experienced for most of my life - I enjoy this way of eating and it is very easy to maintain, although I have no plans to allow complacency to creep in over coming months. I'll accept I have succeeded only if I can maintain my weight roughly as it is now for at least the next five years.
