Carb Counters - Atkins--OP
02-18-2004, 09:34 AM
I figured...We now have a thread where we post when we've gone off the program and indulged....but what about when we've been good? Shouldn't we acknowledge that??
I want to start counting how many days I can stay OP!! Lol...I'm not counting today until it's over. So this is for yesterday. And if I goof? Then I'm starting over. But I thought this'd be interesting.

Good for you Brenda, keep it up!!
Lets see, I have been completely cheat free since January 2nd, so how many days would that make for me?? ;) I need to start keeping better track of this stuff :)

Cheat free 1 day and counting

This thread is just as fabulous-feeling as the one where I get to say another lb was lost! Couldn't wait to be good all day yesterday so I could have a day! My Tuesday was sabotaged by a sneaky coffee machine that put sugar in my latte, and by the time I realized it, I was already back in class and my throat hurt so badly I needed something warm in it.

WOOHOO!! you all are doing great. When I started this I actually thought I'd be the only one to post in it. And even though my number is going up (one day at a time I figure!!! :lol: ) I just KNOW it's not always going to stay up. So I just want to see how far I can go w/out cheating. And maybe posting the days will make me know I CAN'T cheat w/out you all knowing it. :lol: Peer pressure that's called right??? "gotta keep up with the Stars". or is that the Theo'sgirl? Or the other people that managed to stay on program? All I know is for me I've got to try-and maybe this'll help. It was worth a shot. ;)

2 days for me! And the scale proves it! :smug:

Can we post things that we're doing well instead of just a tally of days on plan?
Like, "I walked that 2 miles today"
or "I successfully avoided chocolate whipped cream"
or "I got my exercise from the tredmill today instead of strangling my husband (boyfriend, child, parent, neighbor, etc)" :lol:

Sure Star---I just wanted something that says "hey, I'm doing ok" :)
Post away :)

Great job, everyone! :cb:
I've been OP since Tuesday, which is a great feeling. I didn't know I had it in me these days... :D Also, exercising is going well. I just need to add Pilates back in. Why, oh why did I ever stop??

This will be day 4 for me as long as I make it through the "beer fest" this evening. I may have to forgo :(
But...........drum roll.................I resisted the EVIL BAGELS this morning. I brought in half of one of my 1 gram 7 grain rolls and toasted it then put some cream cheese on it. LOVED IT. Satisfied that bagel desire :smug:

Great job, Jane!!! :cb: :cb: :cb:
I'm just cruising along as usual. I'm so boring :)
