Pxikat! on the grades! Good... no GREAT for you! Calculas... that was my bane too in college... I took it twice and got C's both times and I LOVE Math.. just not this kind!

I was in a funk (besides being tempted badly and giving in... oooooo that little voice in my head got really loud!).. I am needing to do induction again.... Will start in a few days (need to finish the onplan food I have still in the fridge as I do not and cannot afford to throw it out). Funny where you gain weight on your body after losing so much... BELLY.. yep.. LOL well better than my Arse or thighs! I have walked and been good with that part of this challenge...

Have a great day all, I truly hope it is a beautiful day for you all!

Awesome grades Pixi!
Your doing great Easily!

Calee I'm seeing that salty foods really affect me too. More than they use to. I haven't been taking blood pressure medicine since it's been better. That may be why?

Sarah and Sue I'm right there with you. I did not have a planned "off-plan" break but I have realized I have been doing many little things that have added up to little... or no weight loss, recently. So...I'm gonna do better!

PIXI wow.. look at that weight! Shedding the stress weight too.. and please don't go by my grades... I also hated Geometry.. (Love love love Algebra!) My Calculas was science based (I was a Zoology major) and I also took this class when I had joined a Sorority and was attached to a Fraternity.. so I am thinking this class suffered (Tell you how crazy I am.. I still have my Calculas book from that college class that I took 1977! LOL)

Sarah and Carol! Lets go forward now! Today is a new day and we can do it for today ... Yes we can!

Easily... You are amazing... you just keep dropping the weight (even the .2 is a drop and woohoo!)

Calee... Oh the sodium monster got you too.. I am so sorry... I think we need to banish that monster! but at least we can wash him away in a flood of water (with lemon please!)

Well I started my commitment journey again yesterday and did NOT give into the urges and that little voice!

Sue you may be right about shedding the stress weight! It probably helps that the adderall I was put on keeps me at the low end of my eating range, a lot less snacking! I hate geometry too! But algebra is a snap. calculus 1 starts a week from tomorrow so I will let you know how it goes

It is wonderful sue, it is like a switch was flipped and I am suddenly whooshing off the last 4 months worth of loss. Hopefully it keeps up a steady pace until the low 20s where I will stall again if I follow my normal pattern. For the record, it doesn't need to be this fast and steady, a pound or two a week and I'll be happy. Though this 4 pounds in 4 days has been awesome

Wow, pixicat, you are doing great! did you change anything to get that weight loss moving again, or is it just patience? Maybe it was the low-sugar treats!

Hi Ladies - can I join in ? Sarah told me about your group.

I'm Carri, live in Indiana, am 40 yrs old, married with no kids, work at an insurance company for the last 15 years. I just started Atkins/low carbs in March. So far so good, although I've had my moments...it's a learning curve I think.

My goal by July 4th is too be under 200 ...I'm pretty sure I can do it if I stay on track.

Look forward to getting to know you all.

Carri

I ate out last night, can you tell? lol

Sarah - I think it was just the fact I spent a bunch of days in a row at the low end of my calorie range. It seems to have caused a whoosh.

welcome satine!
