Default Lose 5 lbs First #86 (continued)

So it looks like #86 was never completed! I'm newme 12 (Carol). I was here back in 2014 and got a lot of motivation from folks on the forum. I slipped away, and gained some weight back that I really want to lose again... and then keep going of course!
It seems very quiet on the forum right now, but I'm hoping there are lurkers ready to get going...after all, it is getting close to bikini time (ok, not for me) please join in! I'll just play by myself until someone feels sorry for me lol.

Hopping on board! Nice to meet you, Carol. You get extra credit for spunk! I'm Tuscany (Susan). I too got a lot of support from 3FC when I lost weight a few years ago (2013). Unfortunately, I then ran into some health issues and gained weight back. It's time to get back to where I was.

Tuscany!!
Hello! It is so nice to have someone else on the forum!! (and in this challenge, I was starting to feel a little silly lol). I think we must have just missed each other in the 2013-2014 range, because I remember seeing your name in some of the older posts I read for tips back then when I was first starting on Atkins.
Anyways, I am a nurse and I work night shift 7 days on and 7 off, so I will be back later today to post my weight. Thanks for joining me!!

A nurse...that must keep you busy and give you lots of exercise! What type of nursing do you do?

I'm an investment banker, which means I spend lots of time sitting at a computer or in meetings. That's one of my biggest problems when it comes to my weight.

In any event, I was happy to see a small drop in the scales this morning!

Morning Carol...hope you're doing well. It was gorgeous yesterday, so I went for a long power walk outside, which my scales apparently approved of. Have a great day!

Good morning Tuscany! I am a pediatric nurse. Some nights the floor are busy and I am on my feet a lot and somet nights ( like this week), we are slow and I get less excercise. It varies a lot!
You are doing fantastic!! I actually had dropped 2 lbs the day before starting this, and I was up a lb yesterday evening when I weighed. I think it was water retention because I was in the bathroom every 2 hrs last night, so hopefully things will look better this evening!

Morning newme! I'm happy with my progress, although it's not as good as it seems. I was 195 at the beginning of March, then dropped to 192.5 and then went back up to 195 just before seeing/joining this thread. I'm sure the increase was water retention, because I stayed on plan. So, I'm now just shedding that water weight and getting back to where I was about a week ago. Still, I was happy to see another drop this morning.

You have started moving in the right direction. I hope that continues today!

I dropped another 0.5 lb. this morning. I am very happy with my recent progress...although whether or not it will continue remains to be seen. I hope you're doing well!

Great job Tuscany!! So far I have been headed back in the right direction, but we will have to see if that sticks today lol. I might not have been 100 percent good last night��. At least if I go up I'll know exactly why lol. Hope you have a great day!!

No change for me this morning, but that beats a gain! Today I plan to clean the house. I normally do that on Saturdays, but yesterday was so gorgeous outside, I went to the park instead. Perhaps my time spent cleaning, plus some time on my elliptical, will keep me on good terms with my scale. Hope you're doing well!

Just wanted to say hello and I'm back from my month and a half vacation in the Philippines and day two back on induction. Weight is dropping super fast so I don't want to join the 5lb challenge because it wouldn't be fair, but happy to jump back in to get the support here.
