Smile Atkins Christmas Challenge to lose 30lbs

Okay ladies - here we go - should we decide on our weekly weigh-in day?

I'm a fan of Mondays because it's always in the back of your mind that you have to weigh in when its weekend and you want to indulge or overeat. I'd love to lose 30 more by Christmas.

I'm with you, ladies. I can lose 30 pounds by Christmas, and I'd have lots of pretty things to wear...I have an awesome closet full of clothes I LOVE and can't get into.

My best weigh-in day is Saturday morning, 'cause I weigh at my doctor's office and it's the only day I can get there in the a.m. But I'm flexible...I can weigh in on Saturday and post on Monday. Would that work? You guys can pick a day...no worries.

What do I have to do to join the challenge...I'm in.

umm..ok, I looked it up & there is another challenge on the "weight loss support" forum

...it's your call ladies, do you want to continue a separate challenge in the Atkins forum?(& if you do, Saturday seems to be the day of majority for weighing in)

so let me know

I didn't realize this was an atkin's only forum. I am not doing Adkins, so I guess I will have to find the other one! Best of luck all!

I like an "Atkins Challenge," but I'm good with an "Any Way You Want It" challenge too. We'd have a theme song...
