Hi Shado,

I was diagnosed with PCOS about 5 years ago. The funny thing is I began to get regular periods pretty quickly with my last weight loss attempt, even though the scale wasn't moving quickly. This time, my periods haven't come back ( or at least not yet ) but my weight loss has been faster than ever. I couldn't lose weight like this in my teens and I'm 41 now.

wvuchick, 1.5 lbs a week is fantastic! It's what I should be losing based on my calculations. I've set up my plan to cut 500 calories with diet and burn about 250 through exercise. I'm thinking maybe I'm going lighter on the carbs?

I'm kinda hoping I can figure it out and keep doing what works, because sitting at the same weight for a year was so demotivating last time.

I haven't been on here in a while so I guess I'll give an update.

My weight has been bouncing between 220.8 and 219.2 for the past month. It's at the point where I think my weight loss for this month will be about 2 pounds, if that. I believe the problem is that I don't exercise enough. I'm very quick to convince myself not to go to the gym. And now because my work hours have changed for the summer, it's harder to go to the gym. I get out of work at 1 and the gym is closed between 1 and 3. So I just go home telling myself that I'll go walking outside, which never happens.

wanna - congrats on your mini woosh! You're getting there!

I was down to 228.6 this morning. Lowest yet, hopefully it stays and drops the .6 when I weigh in tomorrow.

I agree with wanna's sentiments. Happy Memorial Day everyone! Be sure to thank a veteran!!

Thank you WV and look at you at your lowest on this journey! Did you get your .6 off? or MORE! I wooshed and got more than a lb off = Horray!.. But only had 3 hours of sleep (I stayed up to 5 am watching for the meteor shower that really fizzled. All the guys (yes guys!!! LOL) in my Astronomy club and I sat out in the middle of a very dark county park in the middle of cattle ranches and braved the aggravating mosquites (argh!) and saw about 40 total.. tho 1 was REALLY Bright green and lit up the ground... But I did get back down to 225.. so I have 3.6 more to go to get to my 221.4 (lowest).. and then onward to the 2 teens!

2 Teens all... New Chant!! 2 Teens! here we come!

I did lose the 0.6 and this morning I was down to 226.4. Don't really trust the 1.6 lb loss but I'll go with it.

The meteor shower sounds awesome wanna. I completely forgot about it. Congrats on your woosh!

Welcome Karinrose.

Way to go on your loss Streudel!

Hope everyone had a good Memorial day weekend.

I spent a lot of time working around the house outside. So I got a lot of exercise which allowed me to eat a little more than usual. I'm hoping that (albeit small) spike in calories will help me drop a little weight this week.

I did gain back .2 of the 1.6 yesterday. But since Friday I lost 2 lbs and I think it's going to stick. So I am very happy with that!

Wanna I think you are going to get to your low this week! *fingers crossed*

Have a great Tuesday everyone!

WV BUT you lost 2 lbs! Shazam! Good for you...

I am still working on the 9 lb gain GRRRR... But down another .2 to 224.0 even after my 1 lb gain yesterday (Ham for dinner Sunday)... Just 2.2 lbs to go to get to my all time low.. I will be doing a Fat Fast this weekend (Got my Macadamia nuts and cream cheese) Can't wait to see the outcome of that! Sarahinparis in the Atkins thread has done it several times, lost weight and kept 80% of it off after starting back to Atkins food.. so it works for her.. I hope it works for me!

I hope everyone has a great Wednesday (Hump day!) LOL

Hanging steady at 234.

Way to go on the losses this week, wvu!

Wanna, how does the "Fat Fast " thing work? I'm pretty intimately familiar with getting fat fast.

Macadamias and cream cheese sounds like my kind of fast.

Streudel... LOL Me too... only my Fat fast lasted 40 years! LOL The "Fat Fast" is in the older Atkins books... you eat a total of 1000 calories and 80-90% of them are Fat, the rest is protein and carbs.. you can have 10 oz of cream cheese for the day... or 5 oz of Macadamia nuts (there are other things and I don't have my book here .. but these are the basic 2). The fat fast is to be used if you are having a hard time losing (while sticking to your plan) But I just want to see if I can even do it. So will try this weekend and let you all know!

Me... WOOHOO only 1 more lb of the Birthday gain left to lose... I am down to 222.8 Hooray! Oh I have my sight on the 2 teens... anyone else ready to come with me??!! OH YEAY I know there are!

LOL Streudel. Anything with cream cheese sounds wonderful to me!

Wanna - Yay on your loss. Keep up the good work. My birthday is coming up this weekend, but I don't think it will be a problem. With Fast 5 I just save up all my calories for one meal anyway. I'm hoping it won't be a problem anyway. I'm definitely ready to get into the teens, if the scale will cooperate.

I'm up .8 to 227, which is crazy since I only ate 1300 calories. I know it's probably water, but still frustrating. I'm thinking Saturday will be a good weigh in day.

Hope you all have a great Friday-eve
