Can't weigh but worked out - I read someone calling it the "dreadmill" - personal best 3.7 mph - I'll never be a runner but I will be a very fast walker!! Wishing everyone a downdowndown day!!

Lindsayms14 - I think everything slows down when you get to a certain weight because there is only so much food you can have and stay on plan - but I agree it depends on the type of food. No issues when I am eating boatloads of fauxtato salad for instance! I wouldn't worry about how often only if it is difficult...

I need to get back to studying for my tests today so I will try to do personals later, but I do have a confession, last night I ate at the dining hal, I did so good at first, then I caved to my test-stress induced cravings for bakery food! I ate three cookies. but they made me feel like crap, so it seems unlikely I will do that anytime soon. I haven't noticed that I am feeling better on atkins, but going off that little really set me off. My body was like WTF!!! lol

Pixikat...cookies are a hard thing to walk away from (especially during the holidays) and with you studying and being stressed for the finals.. well.. sometimes a crutch is needed. I have to ask tho, as you said you have not felt anything while doing Atkins, do you feel alittle less cloudy in the head? that was always the first sign to me, telling me that it was working.. I just felt smarter and less brain congested. Has something like this happened to you?

OKAY MARA.. you are .6 ahead of me... ooooohhhhhhhhhhh I have to run run run run to catch up to you! Still shooting for 239?! YEP we are! Show me the path ahead!

12/6 246.8 Oh YAY Just .2 oz away from all time low for this final journey Yippy!... gonna happen - oh yes it is! Climbing ladder this weekend putting up icicle lights and then putting lights on the palm tress... Good workout and sweating!
12/7 245.6 oh YAY BABY! Very happy!!! and I still have all my climbing work to do this weekend (rainy and humid/warm today booo I would send it up north to you all and to the west!)

Ugh Cookies are the bane of my existence this week!!! My aunt sent me a small box of christmas cookies and I ate idk how many I threw the rest of the box away though so thatll be the only damage from that. I think I only gave in cause I was hungry for lunch and the first thing I saw was a brownie, my biggest weakness lol

sue I haven't noticed feeling more clear headed but I have had a tension headache since before I started from school and tests and whatnot. I am alot less hungry though. I am rarely hungry, I more have to remember to eat something most days.

lulu woot!!!!!!!!!!!

1.7.4 this morning!! Not sure what is going on but again I will take it!! For the first time in a very long time I can actually say I made goal on one of the long term challenges!! Thanks again for all of the support and kind words!!! I really appreciate it!!

Sue - When I get to 160 that's when I will feel like I am 15!! That's the weight I was in 10th grade before I went on my first crash diet. It was the 80s and I think the plan was called the "Cambridge Diet" - you know the story - girl loses weight, then gains it back plus some!

Sabotage of the day - My brother, knowing I am getting fit, sent chocolates to my house!!

True confession - I have been experiencing an arthritic flare, had a pity party, and did not work out yesterday. When I warm up and get more flexible later today - I WILL work out - back to faking it until I make it!!

Lulu congrats! I missed your post yesterday!

Staja I still have to do my holiday baking, but I have been slowly introducing my family to healthier goodies. Probably will make zucchini brownies, muffins with chia seed instead of eggs, etc. They seem to like the goodies.

Lulu and Pixicat I understand the temptation. Here at wrong someone brought a huge tin of the Danish butter cookies. I love those things! I had to walk past them several times yesterday. I admit that I had a few.

I am down today though. Fingers crossed for 243 something tomorrow.

Hey all! so far I am back on track today with no problems. I didn't realize I didn't post my weight yesterday lol

Y'all that are baking are strong, if baked goods are in my house I eat them, its awful, so I avoid baking.

Mara zucchini brownies sound intriguing, are they atkins friendly?

Holding steady....but I don't expect much more this month. Usually I lose and then hold for what seems like the longest time before the scale moves again!!

Success of the week I did what I said!! I worked out on the elliptical yesterday - I was worried I was going to fall off the exercise wagon. Not so stiff this morning so I am going to work out soon. I love checking that box off as soon as possible!! It's only December and I can't wait to walk outside again!! It was 15 degrees yesterday and my husband went walking - too cold for me!!

Danish butter cookies - nuff said - doesn't everyone love them!!
