Default *New Years Challenge*

Let's get a jump on our New Year's resolutions and lose some weight before New Years! Who is in? I've lost 10 pounds so far with doing low carb/Atkins and I'm going to try to lose 20 more before New Year's

I will join you. I'm starting the old 1972 Atkins diet in the morning (November 6). I am moving to a new place the day before New Year's day and I want to lose several pounds before doing that.

I'm in! My goal is between 10 and 20 lbs down by New Year's. I leave the range because I tend to plateau and then "whoosh" - even though my body feels like it is changing throughout. Excited to continue on the journey with you all!!

Count me in,, im way over due for a tuneup!! I will also ride my recumbent bike once a day , which is a big commitment for me. I tend to slack of exercise equipment.. Looks like winter is here so wont be going out the door much. With two new knees im so scared of falling. I took a nasty fall last month and it sure has made me gunshy. I will be lowcarbing and using atkins which has always worked for a good program. good luck everyone...

My other goal is to rejoin our nearby gym - at least for the winter months. My kids are finally old enough that I think I'd trust them in the childcare room, which I guess takes away my final excuse that my hubby gets home too late for me to go. When I'm in the swing of things, I look forward to my gym time. I've managed to take 5+ years off, though, so it's just making that first step that feels overwhelming. But I can do it!!

Yesterday was a test in resolve -- went out with the girls - went to Panera for dinner -- ate the Asian Sesame Salad with no wontons and the sauce on the side - and happily counted the 15 carbs for a great treat then we went to the new James Bond Movie "Skyfall" which was good

but I got home at 10:20 and walked in front of the tv to get the last half of my steps in ... so 12,660 steps done YAY

I'd like to join in as well. My goal is 5-10 pounds by the new year. I've been at a plateau for months so this will take some work!
