I'm challenging myself to lose 10 pounds by Valentines day!!! If you all want to join, that's great! I'm also using what the scale said this morning---not what my siggie says.

Brenda: 147/137

I'll join, but I'm not touching the scale until Friday. So my start weight will have to wait until then, but my goal is 128!

I'm DEFINITELY in!!!

It's a tall order, but I'm aiming for 168 by Valentine's Day. That includes a whopper of a loss (hopefully, and if history repeats itself) during this induction period.

Brenda, are you just starting today? I understand that one! ...And it still counts as loss! I think you just shouldn't weigh yourself, just in case! ;) Man, I can't believe the damage I did!!!! Totally figures! I am SO back OP today!!!!! The holiday's are SO over!!!!!!! My goal will probably be 190 first, then 185. I think I am just going to take it 10lbs at a time. The end goal seems too much like a pipe dream to me.

Hi, I'm new here.. but not to atkins (it's a long story but an operation made it so I had to quit atkins and am now ready to get back to it - after gaining all my weight back).

I'm up for a valentines challenge and have already joined on the other thread (in the general area).

I've committed to lose 10lb and am starting 2nd Jan. have a dinner party on the 1st and need to go shopping!

You never know with strict induction i might lose more.. I hope so!

No Carrie, I'm not starting yet. I plan on starting 1/2/04. Or 1/3/04 w/out caffeine. Not positive on that yet.

Looks like we have a lot of takers here. I'm looking forward to watching you all shrink away :) I'm hoping to be one of them that shrink :)

Ok, so I started my induction a little earlier than I thought. But it was either that or continue to gain weight. NO WAY!! lol It's kind of scary. My body never caps out on weight gain. I can just gain an infinate amount of weight no problem at all. OUCH! Atkins isn't a choice for me. I would totally kill myself with out it. Nothing else works but things. Splurges are not that big of a thing once in a while, as long as I get back on track with the real plan. :D 3 bls lost today! :D I gained 4 lbs over the holiday, and now that is gone! So today starts my real goal of 10lbs at least lost by Valentines day. :D

Well girls.. having reviewed my 10 lb weight loss pledge.. I think I'm going to 'up' my game, and increase the loss pledge.

I hadn't really thought how long it is till valentines, and the fact that it's my first week of induction.

Last time I lost 7lb on induction so
I'm going to pledge: 18lbs

So our new 'count' is:

Lost 6! (But I did start on 12/27)

You've gotta love the massive water weight loss during induction! By the by, I realize I've chosen a pretty darn unrealistic goal, but I need to do that just to keep myself highly motivated. I promise that I won't be viewing my inability to meet it as a failure!

Just wanted to show you support !! You could actually do this, if really strict..
You'd need to lose 2.5 lb's a week from now on in... give it a shot and you might even surprise yourself!! Either that or review your goal... I'm sure we all won't moan!!

Paula: Congrats on the weight loss. Wish mine was dropping off that fast!! I'm thinking I'm not doing something right again. Keep up the great work!!!

Carrie: We all have different days we weigh in. My official WI day is Saturday. I know some people do it on Mondays. It's ok if you weigh in every day...but are you making those losses official?

KarenW
01-04-2005, 11:26 AM
Carrie - I weigh in EVERYDAY too as it keeps me on track and motivated. But I dont count anything official until Sunday.. the weights change officially on threads like this Sundays for me.

Uggamugga4
01-04-2005, 12:59 PM
Brenda, Ya I make those weight losses official! Especially when I wake up and feel thinner, then the way I feel is confermed by the scale.

I stepped on the scale this morning and I lost another pound! I know this is real loss because I had salty food last night, and my hands would normally be puffy, instead my rings are loose, and the scale says 195! That's one more pound down! YAY!!!!! My clothes totally confirm that. 5 more pounds until my first valentines day goal! :D

I weigh in every day because I am just too curious.

01-04-2005, 07:04 PM
Carrie.. way to go!! Another lb gone!! your half way to your next step on betty's chart!! :D

Ok.. you all are tormenting me, I'd love to, really want to weigh, but it's one of my boot camp promises!!

I've set up my 'return to exercise' date with my buddy. She and I are both dreading going back to our Aerobics class. We used to go twice a week, but as she has changed hours we can only do once a week, and that's the hardest of the two classes!! :dizzy: I think we'll be sore come next Wednesday and Thursday! ;)

Today has flown by and my little girl is back at school tomorrow... how christmas has passed so quickly I don't know.

Well, off to have a glass of water before bed, seem thirsty tonight.
Night night all

I wonder if that is just too much to ask of myself?? What do you all think? Hmmmm.. now that I'm thinking hard about it.. That would mean 12 lbs in a little over a month.

Hi. I'm jumping in a bit late, but a challenge is just what I need to keep me motivated. Since I just started induction, I'm hoping 15 pounds isn't too much to expect. I'm going for it! What you guys have lost so far is inspiring!

Well this morning saw me down another lb. I'd share my 'tips' if I had any.. honest! All I'm doing is strict induction... Dr Atkins is the genius !!
I did gain a lot recently so it'll just be some of that shifting... thank goodness!! hehe

Can't wait now to see when I make my goal.. and set my next one at 199 it will be fantastic to get out of the 200's as I didnt' make that last time.. I got stuck at 204. So fingers crossed.. Still a 'weigh' to go yet though ;)

Well I'm not weighing today! lol I had kosher franks and sourkraut with mustard for dinner last night. Super salty, but SOOOOOOO GOOOD!! I feel a bit swollen today, but I knew that would happen. I'll weigh again on Sunday with you gals.

My weight loss is usally funny. For me it isn't how much to lose in a week, because my body doesn't always lose that way. I tend to lose in chuncks at a time. A monthly average is better. I'm not sure if I should readjust my weight loss goal, because sometimes I just lose weight at the beginnings of the month, or just at the end of the month. Valentines Day may or may not fall during that time. I doubt I'll lose any more weight for the rest of the month. We'll see though. My body may just wait until the beginning of next month. lol So wierd!

Jane- Yes, I'm going make my next goal 180. Hopefully I'll be at 185 by Valentines day. If I'm really good????

I'm still pretty sick. I feel aweful!

On Saturday my friend Christina and I had our first paying Gig!! We played at a wedding. It went REALLY well, and we got paid well! Very fun! We're going to start our own business in this. It was a blast. I played the violin, she played the piano. We did all classical on Saturday. Very pretty and very fun. *sigh*

Yippee!
I'm down 3 pounds. I can hardly wait to lose another 4 and be at my pre-thanksgiving weight! Sometimes it's hard to count what's happening right now as progress when I'm just playing catch-up, but it's definitely better than going the other way. Since I made it through my first weekend, I feel more confident that I can do this again.

Congratulations to everyone. Look how much we've lost!

Am just popping in quickly... as need to get my head down for a few hours till baby decides to get up (again)...

Am still very much on plan, but haven't had a chance to weigh in yet this week. can you believe I keep forgetting!! I weigh normally first thing in the morning, and this week it's 11am before I have time to think.. so forget :mad: . Will try and remember again in the morning. :dizzy:

Fostering is keeping us very busy, we have a new placement in addition to baby, she's 5 same age as my DD so we had the two of them laughing and giggling till 10.30pm last night, and my DD was up again tonight till 9.30pm... :o foster placement fell asleep earlier than that, and was actually asking to go to bed before bedtime!! bless her. Not sure how long she'll be with us, but should have more of an idea tomorrow or friday. More meetings going on Friday (2) and then next week.

So... that's where I've dissappeared to! :coffee:
Take care, keep losing!!

The scale hasn't been moving for me (again) but I'm sure that's due to the exercising and such. Just hope it knocks down another couple pounds. I'd really (for once) like to meet one of my goals :lol: Oh well, at least I'm getting exercise in--that's a first for me.

You are truly an inspiration!!! I have only 3 and 5 yr old boys and I can't seem to find time and you have all those and do just fine!! I am so happy that you help out those babies, my husband and I are planning a move to a bigger house so we can do some fostering or adoption too. Any advice you have about starting up would be great. PM me is you get the chance.

Thanks for the inspiration!!!

Hi Ladies !
Thanks so much for your support! I've been totally flat tonight after SW said our new placement is likely to go home next week. I am very concerned as feel the level of care for her isn't sufficient by any standards. We have written down our concerns and are to speak with the SW tomorrow also.
I won't rattle on, but your messages have really helped! :D

I was in care myself as a child and fostering is something I really want to do, and am lucky enough that my hubbie feels the same.

Well, finally weighed in this am, and have lost another 1lb, so that's a total loss of 13lb so far.. not far from 1 stone :cheer:

Am really pleased and proud that I'm managing to stay on plan. ;)

Theo's Girl.. I'll pm you and also send a link to my website. It's only a little MSN group on fostering and adopting. A great place to chat - and with others. Although most of us are in teh UK we have one US member.

Thanks again,
Hugs,

Thanks hun!

Thankfully our foster child opened up a bit on the drive to school this morning so have been able to relay our conversation to SW. It may or may not help but certainly should help. We're going to see if foster child will speak with SW as openly as she did with me. I'll be there for support for her which may help as last time she talked alone with SW and as she's only 5 found it daunting.

Am still sticking to plan and feeling great! Don't feel like this is a diet, or new woe anymore, just natural. Still miss puddings though.. but not craving.. just habitual. :p

01-13-2005, 02:42 PM
not a weight loss issue..just an update on foster child. She did talk to SW really well, but has made no difference.. other than they will watch closer when she returns home this weekend. I am a bit worried, I must admit, but can't fret over every case like this, so am trying to trust Social Service's call on this one.

Hi.
Purple, you and your husband are amazing. We often hear about abuses in foster homes because that's the kind of thing that's "newsworthy". It's so wonderful to know there are people like you out there who care so much. That caring must make it so much more difficult to watch a child go back to potentially harmful situations.

Still OP here, but scale is not moving much. I guess lightening doesn't strike twice. My first time on Atkins it seemed the weight just melted off. I may have to adjust my goal accordingly, but that's O.K. I wish I could have a big "Whoosh" before the weekend to help me stay motivated, but I think I'll be O.K.

Just a quickie.. as it's breakfast time in our house :D

Lost another 2lb!! in 2 days.. woohoo!!

Jen, thanks for your kind comments, it is sad in any line of work where you only hear the bad side.
I am worried about our foster placement returning, but thankfully I don't think it's a physically harming environment. Social services will be watching now, so I really hope if things deteriorate (spell check) again then it'll be more clear cut next time. It's a shame there has to be a next time.

Blissful.. my ticker, is homemade (and I made carries as we're weight loss buddies) :)
If you have an image I don't mind 'knocking' one up for you. PM me..

Hi all, I'm glad I'm not the only one who's been very busy and have found it hard to get on and post. I've read several times trying to keep up on everyone.

I went out to lunch yesterday and gained two pounds back from my 7, but think I can get that off today. :( I really tried to follow the plan, but I had dressing on my salad. Then instead of buying an entire quart of ice cream, I had one soft serve in a cone. I know, not OP, but I'm happy I used portion control. :mouse:

Purple Hugs, Sorry you're having a rough time today. I pray it all works out alright for you and your foster child.

Everyone keep up the good work with the challenge. :D

Thanks Sonnet, we had a pretty rough morning but managed to turn things around by keeping busy in the afternoon with family and pets.

Hi everyone, thanks so much for the wonderful welcome!!!!! I weighed in yesterday, and am down 4 lbs towards my Valentined goal, and I am not getting too excited because PMS should be kicking in next week sometime then...eeeaaakkkk!!!!!! Who else has crazy PMS and please tell me the positive ways that you deal with it instead of eating you way thru the fridge and cupboards!!!!! I just hate the cravings!!! I am glad to be here and am happy to have found such an active website!!! What plan is everyone on, ?
I have tried WW about 10 times and never stick wilth it for more that 3 months, all the weighing gets to me eventually!!!
And that is not good, but I do not want to be in the same place next year as I am in this year!!! I am getting tired of listening to my own excuses!!!
all sounds like blah blah blah to me!!!!!!!!!

Hi everyone, I am definately in for the Valentine's challenge. I just started atkins on saturday 1/15/05 and my start weight was 235. I have not weighed myself since then so I'm not sure if I have lost anything yet or not. But since I just started I expect to lose a bit more the first week so I will say that I would like to have lost 15 pounds by valentines day. I'm starting my free membership at Bally Fitness today too yay! Oh yah if anyone is interested if you go to discovery.com/health and join the national body challenge you get an 8 week free membership to Bally Fitness. Thank goodness for that or I would never join a gym lol. Good luck to everyone!
p.s. How do I get that valentines challenge ticker?

edit: nevermind I think I figured out the valentines ticker thing

Hi everyone! My stats are the same. I'm sorry but I've been so busy working. I've been painting up a storm. Can you believe people are actually paying me for this?!!?!? OMG!! Come check out my new site. THere's a little bit of my art work there. I've started a business that I paint portraits of people according to what they want. Very fun. With that business I am offering a service that people send me pics of their kids, and I make them into cartoon's, in the setting that they'd like to see their children in! I have a client that I am doing a whole room for her little girl! CAN"T believe this is happening!!! I could be a "Carrie Woomer" someday! LOL!!!! I'm stoked. Check it out. www.carriewoomergallery.tk/

Good morning everyone! Just checking in this morning. I have lost 10 pounds as of last night woo hoo! I went to bally last night and got on machines that were so scarey looking i thought i would die LOL. It was great though I could feel the burn and it felt GREAT. I had a heart time lowering my heart rate though. I'm not sure what's up with that. Anyways, everyone is doing great, keep up the good work!

Hi Blissful, both holidays sound wonderful to me. I'm in. :D

And Turtle, Earth Day and Arbor day. We will fit them in as well. :lol: Really, it just hit me that so what if I don't lose a pound a day. If I keep holiday hopping with even a few pounds each time, the weight will be off in no time.
