Not much new

To report.
Went to the doctor about 2 1/2 weeks ago for a progress on my incision. When the nurse weighed me I almost died. THAT'S IT!! Gonna do some serious weight loss here! So the next day I started.
What I'm doing is a modified Atkins diet. My daughter and I did this years ago with great success but being hypoglycemic, it's hard to do. So I modified it.
The first thing I did was cut sugar from 1 1/2 cups to 3/4 cup per gallon in our ice tea and cut back on salt. We now use a lot more pepper.

1 cut cereal.........Wheaties or Rice Krispies
3/4 cup milk

1/2 sandwich with
10 small chips or small salad
or egg salad with left over meat from dinner the night before

banana with gobs of Cool Whip

cut back from whole potato to 1/3 cup
all the meat I want
1/4 cup vegetables
lots of salad

Evening snack......if any:
5 pieces watermellon about 1" x 2"
or banana

The first 3 or 4 days I felt I was starving but have to report that in just over 2 weeks I've lost a total of 17 pounds..........WHOO HOO!!!
