Thanks Lulu for starting the thread!

Sadly I did not see a lower number for the New Year, I had forgotten til last night I promised hubby I would cook the carb filled deliciousness that came in the Omaha steaks package from my mom. with it we had alcohol.

The scale is not happy with me this morning. So I am using yesterday's weigh in as my official SW for Jan for now

12/31 - 244.6
01/01 - 249.8

Good morning everyone. Happy New Year.

This week is my seventh week of lowcarbing. I went down to 153, but as of this morning I am back up to 155. Hopefully I shall lose these two pounds fast. So I am keeping 153 as my starting weight. If I lose 1 pound a week I will be at 148 by Valentine's Day. Hopefully I shall make it there, but leaving 150s makes me happy too, lol.

My SW this morning was 178.4, GW for 6 weeks is 160, it's a bit ambitious but today was day 1 of induction so I know weight drops quickly at first.

Hello everyone!!!

Welcome Rachel and Navymom!

Hi Futurehealthyme and Smith - so glad to see you!!!

Sue - You are well on your way to the 230s and lower!!!

Pixikat - Be kind to yourself!! This is a marathon!!

1.7.7 - Heading in the right direction!! Yeah!! As many of you know I'm old school and I went shopping for jeans because Walmart doesn't have any more sizes for me. I shopped at the Levi's outlet store and bypassed the women's jeans because I don't like spandex in jeans or the tighter fit. My NSV was 38s and 36s that were too big/loose and a pair of 34s that are my near term stretch goal pants!! Very surprising for me!! The attendant didn't understand why I had to try on so many jeans but the reality is I didn't know my real size - well now I do!

Good morning! I am happy to see some new faces in the crowd

Rachel that sounds like a great goal! And leaving any decade behind is always double great!

futurehealthyme you can do it!!!

sue You GOT this!!!

smith sounds like my kind of day!!!

navymommy that it does tend to do enjoy the flush while it lasts, it is so fun watching the scale go faster. How many kids do you have? what ages?

lulu I am trying! The problem is when I give in it makes it harder to get back on track then I just get upset I gave in at all lol for example, we ordered pizza for lunch yesterday, I got low carb toppings, a garlic butter based sauce, and ate the cheese and toppings only and left the crust. Than a couple hours later I went into the kitchen for a drink and ate a couple slices of the crust because it was there and was tempting me... lesson learned is throw directly into trash and not leave box on stove. but had I not been craving bread from cheating the day before it likely wouldn't have tempted me...... yay for the jeans NSV when I hit 220 last time I went to a store and freaked the attendent out, I started trying on clothes, after going back 3 times for a smaller size I just started bawling (happiness) and she flipped out with concern. It took me like 5 minutes of assuring her that I was ok, just happy before she calmed back down.

Sarah you GOT this too!!! Holiday creep likes coming off fast sometimes, it knows it is unwanted and we scare it away with our knowledge of how to get rid of it.

My water is starting to come back off, hopefully it cooperates. The goal I have set for Valentines in a different thread is 6-9 lbs for an avg of 1-1.5 lbs a week. Which will put me between 238.6 and 235.6. Lower is better

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

Goal for challenge: 320

Exercised yesterday (walked 3 miles and did upper body weight training). I ate too much, low carb but too much.
SW: 1/1 - 240
1/2 - 239.3
I found an idea for low carb and liked it: the egg/meat/cheese/veggies in muffin tins, baked and - voila - yummy breakfast and/or snack.
WEEKEND MUST DO: plan and cook most meals for the week (grill chicken breasts, sautee veggies, measure and cut veggies, etc) I must have things done when I get home to avoid eating BAD STUFF.
ANOTHER GOAL: take my daily vitamins.
SOMETHING NEW: I started drinking Bragg's organic apple cider vinegar (2 tablespoons in cold water). It is supposed to have lots of health benefits. One thing - brush your teeth right after to avoid the acidic wear on your teeth.
jbwiklanski - great goals. I like walking while watching a show I like. I wish I had a buddy to walk with on a daily basis. That is not possible in the winter though. So, treadmill it is. Best of luck to you!
pnkrckpixikat - I know exactly what you mean about totally falling off the wagon just because of one bad choice. I have done that so many times in the past!
We just have to try really hard to stick with it and if we make a mistake, we need to accept it as a ONE TIME mistake and get back on it.
sarahinparis - we can do this! I also have a lofty goal, but like you and others said, it comes off easier in the beginning.
smith1313 - great progress already! Keep it up!
wannaskipandlaugh - your body will eliminate the salt and the leftovers are now gone
rachelearth - wishing you best of luck! God help me and all of us, your starting point is my final goal!
Lulu - WOW! Good for you Lady! How awesome to realize how much smaller you are and how your hard work is paying off. You are an inspiration! I already made a mental note, when I slow down or hit a plateau, to always remember your positive attitude and determination to stick with the program.
"See" you ladies soon! We can do it!

Hey guys! I just joined this site today and am starting Atkins today also....actually I've spent today reading and researching, tomorrow is my first day of "doing" it. I need a short term goal and this Valentine's Day challenge seems perfect. My official starting weight as of this morning is 193.6 and I'm going to set a 12 lb goal. I hope I'm not setting myself up for disappointment but I know you tend to lose more right at first. Good luck to everyone!!
