Welcome JB and momof3!!!

smith you are starting off strong!!! keep it up

sue drat that ham!! water with lemon!

lulu YIKES! note to self: never move to east coast lol I HATE the cold. I whine here in TX and right now the lows are only in the 20s. Mmmm lamb curry sounds YUMMY

navymommy awww those are adorable ages. not too much attitude yet typically. And your body is probably just adjusting. stay on track and it has to give in eventually

I did well yestrday, I think, we went out for dinner and I double checked how they prepared a couple things so in theory I was on track. I had crab stuffed flounder with asparagus and spinach cheese dip with celery instead of chips. I seem to be still flushing off the water. Hopefully when it is done I see a new low

12/31 - 244.6
01/01 - 249.8
01/02 - 247.8
01/03 - 246.7

Holding at 1.7.7 - I'm challenged with a psoriatic arthritis flare and took extra prednisone last night so I'm not expecting any downdowndown for a bit! Not supposed to go back to the dr until March but I'm calling on Monday to try to get myself straightened out!! No pity party here - it is what it is!

On the bright side - can I just say I love fauxtato salad!! And the warmth of the woodstove!! Negative 13 this morning!! Yikes!!

JB - Congrats on surviving!! TOM seems to always cause issues but I usually have my best downs after!! For me Atkins always seems to get easier after the first few weeks - one choice at a time!!

Wishing everyone a downdowndown day!!!

Hello Momof3

Navymommy :..) - Sometimes our cells just do not want to give up on the fat and water. They hang on like its Superglue... especially during stressful times (weather and holidays) But just wait.. in a day or two WHOOSH!!!! that stuff will just go away!

Smith... Look at you in the 170's again WOOHOO! You are doing the downdowndown dance! (trademarked by LULU)

JBW - TOM its just a stopper (Short term).. but oh the day its over... You TOO will see that big time WHOOSH and then I will hear your Yipee Yahoooooo all the way down here in Florida!

Pixikat - ohhhhhhh Crab Stuffed Flounder.. oh gosh.. Can I come visit you?! That just made my mouth water. Oh YUM! Isn't it neat that we can eat that awesome food and be on plan!! You are going in the right direction.. 230's are close for us!

LULU... you just brighten my day. When I turn on my computer and see your post, I always smile. That 173 is coming soon! Oh yes it is... I just know it.. then onto new territory!

If I missed someone.. I do apologize. I an thankful for you ALL!

SW 1/1/14 243.8
1/2 244.6 (+.8 well eh... salty BBQ Shrimp last night and leftover NY eve showing up)
1/3 (244.8 (+1.0 total) YUCK going the wrong way.. Ate salty salty salty ham for lunch yesterday... Salad today!!! lol
1/4 243.4 (-.4 total) salad did the trick.. and the 2.25 mile walk (3rd day in the row 2.25 or 2.5+ mile walks) Back in the right direction too!

GW 2/14/14 234.0 YEP!

YAY!! Just what I need!!

I was within one pound of my first mini goal and ahead of schedule. I decided to give myself Christmas through New Years as a break. I ate carbs and sugar but tried to keep my portions small. I felt horrible! tired, cranky, skin broke out and got blotchy, started craving sugar like crazy!! Worst of all I put on 3 pounds!!!

So happy to be back at it and I am looking forward to this challenge!!

Wow - Yeah Sue, Smith, Navymom, JB and Pixikat on the downdowndown!!

Hello Capecod!!

Sue I'm jealous of your walks!! I love to walk outside!! So happy for you!!

Navymom - making me laugh "going to the gym to make some fat cry"!! There is someone on this forum that says something like "I wear black when I workout because it's a funeral for my fat!"

Holding at 177 but I feel a down coming - I'm sure it is just around the corner even with extra prednisone on board!! I worked out yesterday and will again today. I think I have only missed 3 days in the past month. Yesterday was slow going but I still did it and I am proud of myself for that!! The elliptical has been worth it as I never left the house yesterday and don't think I will today either!!

Looking forward to marinated steak tips for dinner tonight!! My family will have baked potatoes but Ill have fauxtato salad and a tomato!!

Best wishes for an on plan day - take it one choice at a time and be kind to yourself!!
