Hope everyone is doing great!! Holding at 173 - no whoosh fairy for me!!

Sue - you WILL move down!!
Pixikat - you are getting ready for a new decade!!
RDexter - sometimes you don't see big losses just steady losses over a long period of time. I average about a pound a week but some weeks nothing goes and some weeks it seems 3 pounds go. I have a "frustrating" relationship with the scale! Like my husband, it never tells me what I want to hear!! HA!! (Just kidding) but knowing my weight keeps me directed toward my goal...a lot of people take measurements as another gauge and I really wish I had some good posed before pictures to compare to where I am today.

Best wishes for an on- plan day!!

Hello,
I've been messing around with carbs and my scale is definitely reflecting it at 152.8 this morning. I'd like to join in this challenge to help me remember that I'm committing to low carb "again". I've been a member here since 1999 but recently got a new user name. Low carb got my weight off so now I'm back for my tune up. I'm a slow slow loser even with under 25 carbs. Thanks for letting me join you!

Start 1/16. 152.8
Goal 2/14. 148

Hi Calee!!

Sue - I love,love ,love orchids!!! I have have a patch of lady slippers that grow in my yard and look forward to them every year!!

Pixikat - keep up the good work!! It takes time!!

Yahoo!! 172!! 6 pounds less than my lowest adult weight!!!! Did I ever tell you that 160(my realistic goal weight) is the weight I was in 10th grade before I ever started dieting? I really feel stupid for ever starting to "diet" in the first place - all these years and all the anguish!! 160 at 5-6 is about 7-8 pounds overweight - not a big deal at all - honestly what was I thinking? Reality check!!

Thank you all for your welcome! I'm quite inspired by all the hard work happening here. I had great resolve yesterday until the work breakfast. Then I literally tossed my resolve aside for a wheat product and I try so hard not to eat wheat. I was not expecting boss to walk in with breakfast.

At least I was ble to organize lunch for the 8 of us from a cafe next door. I had a burger, no bun with salad no fries. So I felt better about it.

The left over wheat victims are in my office. I get there first and will take them down to the street guys.

It's a new day and I won't let this slow start derail me.

Lulu, you're so close to your goal! How many years since you've been there? Yay so close!

Sue - Thank you!!! I just love your old scale and I look at your ticker - you are half way there!!!! Congratulations!!

Welcome Brooklyn!!!

Calee - I celebrated my 1 year Atkins anniversary on January 7th - but I didn't sign up for this forum until a month later - I was a virtual stalker for a little bit until I got the nerve up to start posting! Sue celebrated her 1 year on Jan 6. (Right? Sue..) (this is my second time around - I lost really fast about 10 years ago but fell off track....but now I'm back for good)(How many year since I've been at goal? Answer: my entire adult life...)

Pixikat - keep going and the scale will eventually say what you want!!
