Carb Counters - Encouragement throughout the Holiday months

I love how this board is full of encouragement.... AND I was wondering if anyone is interested in being part of a fun project for the next 2 months?

Just send me a Private Message with your name and address (I will not publish them here online…and don’t you do it either :D). I will setup a schedule where at least 3 people will send a note/postcard etc. (Snail Mail style) to encourage a fellow Atkins member. Depending on how many of you are interested….I will try to have each person send one note per month. However, if enough of you are interested, maybe each person could get a note each week from another member over the next two TOUGH MONTHS!

I think this could be especially encouraging throughout the holidays and might give us something visual to look at and hold onto and maybe just keep in our purses to read during those times when we may need that extra push to resist temptation. ( I mean food temptation here….it won’t work for men in fast cars… with long hair… blue eyes…a tattoo…OK I’m a little off topic now sorry! WHEW!)

You could enclose anything that you think might encourage that person to stay on program for the next few months. A personal note, a picture of yourself, a poem etc.

It will run for 7 weeks beginning next Monday 11/17.
Interested?????

Oh – and who can think of a jazzy name for this project???

:dizzy:

Love the idea, Kim! I'll send my info to you. As for a catchy name... I'm drawing a blank. I'll think on it, though. Thanks for thinking of this and managing it!

Take care,
Jina

How about:

Greeting Carbs

Giving up Carbs for Cards

Postcarbs

...yeesh, I can't get off the carbs=cards thing...

lame, I know. I'll keep thinking as I contemplate the slow and painful death of the computer I am working on. (It's been giving me problems today and I should really have gone home by now!)

Lekker!!

You are so clever! I am HUGE pun fan though. Everyone teases me about my love of puns. I vote for one of yours. I will definitely participate. This is a great idea Kim!

I am not eating sugar, white flour, or fruit for the time being I mostly steal from Atkins for food ideas, but I am not counting carbs. I check labels, if there is sugar in it or yeast would eat it or its labebled diet food I won't touch it.
