Default Incentive

I decided I needed more of an incentive to stick to this WOE than KNOWING it's healthy for me. I know that I will be losing weight slowly. Usually because of that I get frustrated and just pigging out on junk. So today, went to Discovery and took a pic of the LBD I want to be able to wear in December. And looked around and some of the other clothes I want to be able to wear by this summer. I also put my DD's (yes, of COURSE it was too tight and too small, but that was the point) bikini on and took a couple pics of me in it. Looking at those pictures SHOULD be enough to keep me looking toward the goal!!

What is your incentive to keep going?

Mine is simple. It's just the way I feel eating low carb. I'm not sick, running to the bathroom with the runs, I'm not bloated. It's great!

Now, having said that...I do gave a goal gift in mind. It's a silver bead necklace from Birks. And I want the smallest size!

If I get my old job back (I quit because I was going to have my daughter, and wasn't there long enough to get maternity), I would start in February (interview is Tuesday). I want to look good when I go back and see old people. When I started I was 20 weeks pregnant and right now I'm within 6 lbs of pre pregnancy weight.

I also want to get to my goal weight and maintain for awhile before I get pregnant again, I'm hoping to start trying summer/fall.

FutureHealthyMe: the healthy feeling is a goal of mine also! It'll be so great not to be tired (bloated, achy, etc) all the time

SeeMyFeet: I had noticed lately a lot of my clothes are BLACK as well! I've been slowly ditching them and bringing color back into my life

Stephanie: WTG on the MEDIUM sized top!!!

We can all reach our goals

I will always have black clothes and also blue clothes in my main wardrobe - but I am trying to get a little more color added in with tops or scarves ..

I got my iPhone as my 50 lb loss reward - I whipped on by my 100 lb lost with nothing more than a happy dance -- need to think on that I guess .. and I really need to start thinking on what do do as a goal reward -- hmmmmm

It's neat seeing this thread being brought up again! I did end up getting the job and I started at my pre pregnancy weight as well I got lots of compliments about how great I looked and I've lost an additional 2 and a half lbs since then.

Oh Stephanie that is wonderful. So job back, lost weight and the best thing.. having a baby Sounds like the best trifecta! and you are in the smiley faces of your ticker. Happy end

I hope that we can keep the Atkins area going again. It seems like everyone migrated to other places and there are plenty of times that I need advice doing this and hearing what others are doing.
