Hi - It's me (slow loser/virtual stalker!!). I'm at 203 - I'd be happy to lose 1-2 pounds during this challenge - 5 might be a little out of my league!!

I had a scale scare this morning. I stepped on the scale and it said 227.4. I was about to cry, then I stepped off and back on and it said 226.6. I took that as my number and stepped off before it changed its mind. I really hope 226.6 is the correct number.

Prettymom.... We don't like scares LOL and I am glad that your scale behaved itself cause you deserve it :)

Kayin.... SHAZAA Already more than 1 lb down? GOODness that is wonderful. You are on a roll girl...

Ian.... I read about your gym and all the exercising. That really does retain water as your muscles heal themselves and I am so sorry that it added to you.... you have been on such a roll.. But..... the muscles that you are growing will burn more calories in the long run and you will be toner (my legs are not as lumpy looking with all the walking I am doing) You are doing a good thing for yourself and you might not be as sore on the plane ride either. I bet you will flush that water weight out by Thursday... :) right before you go.... then you will give Kayin a run here in this thread. Tho I am trying too now that I am not stalled anymore :)

Everyone is doing so well.. yes even you slow loser/stalker Lulu :) and KATE you are doing great!! Gosh less than 20 lbs to Final Goal... that line is in the neighborhood now and not the next town away :) (Mine (final goal) is still in a different country trying to get moved to a state)

Hello Ian from somewhere over the European or eastern Asian skies! I knew you had a swoosh and CONGRATS to you! Have fun in Turkey and I hope the beer is tasty!!

Kate where are you? I hope you are full of good news when you post!

You all make me blush... I just love seeing people accomplish their goals and feel horrible (for myself alot of times) when the scale just does not cooperate for us and try to reason it out :) But we all persevere! and that is the important thing....

I am down to 266 TODAY OH :woohoo: I am still in the swoosh and happy as a clam. It has made my day and plan on being even lower tomorrow so that I can say I gave myself a Fantastic Birthday present! - but with all you all's help!! I love this place! I would have given in in January without this place...

The beer is not as good as American beer Sue. But the wine is OK. And the salads look good too. So it's wine for dinner for the next two weeks.

I get to weigh in again tomorrow morning on my travel scale. So y'all best watch out!

Oh Oh..... We're watching IAN :) I hope that you do have a nice swoosh.... then you will have to tell us the name of the wine you are drinking so I can visit Total Wine down the street! :)

Glad you made it safe and sound to your destination. Found a good gym too... and salads to stay on plan. Looks like everything is working out for you and that is awesome...

Ok so its my special birthday tomorrow... I will be 55 on 5/5 LOL how cool. I made myself a almost perfect Atkins chocolate Cheesecake....
Used the receipe on line.... Cream Cheese, Sour Cream, Heavy cream, Eggs, Vanilla (only have the sweetened kind.. but that was the only bad thing), splenda and Baking Dark Cocoa Powder... OH YEAH It is sitting in the fridge for my treat tomorrow and I cannot wait. I might find some low sugar natural peanut butter and mix it with some cream cheese and splenda and make a peanut butter icing.... OH my mouth is drooling just thinking of it. I have to make sure I freeze the extras as I know it won't last (Made it in a deep dish 9 inch pie plate) My birthday treat for myself (all my family is out on a cruise from Ft. Lauderdale to Montreal up the east coast of US.

Yum Yum and I am also going to sleep in (alittle until my cats jump on me)

Hugs to you all!

Ian.. I knew 218 today for you... SO good... How do you feel? I bet you are floating along the ground now. Do you walk lighter and feel taller? That happens to me sometimes when I hit a good mark. I meant to ask.. did you have to buy all new clothes for the trip? I hope you have a good day!

Thanks Sue. Work was OK today. Three meetings and I'm back at the hotely by 5pm. That's nice.

On the clothes, I took my tightest so they would not get too baggy in two weeks. I generally have to buy new clothes every weekend to keep my wardrobe up with my weighloss. It is totally mad. And expensive.

congratulations Ian!!! but watch out, the ladies may give you a run for your money on this next challenge =)

Sue, I went off plan too. You absolutely cant say no to cake on your birthday haha. I finished my second year of medical school yesterday, and me and some girlfriends went out for margaritas....and I forgot how losing weight makes you lose all tolerance for alcohol, so I ended up eating a burger and french fries...which was delicious....but so not atkins approved. But Im back on plan today!

IanG
05-07-2013, 04:50 PM
Thanks ladies. I'll start a new one. I got lucky even by my standards this week because of the new regime.

And happierme, the alcohol tolerance thing is so true! I still drink like I am at my old weight and keep getting drunk! But I can resist the food, so no damage...yet!
