Default First Official Atkins Challenge

We need some shaking up on this board so I was thinking of a challenge !

ARE YOU WITH ME ?

Lets set a realistic goal, how about 1 - 2 lbs a week until Thanksgiving ?

So we will start the Challenge on Monday, September 29th until November 26th (day b/4 Thanksgiving). This would give us 8 1/2 weeks.

How does 15 lbs sound ?

You do not have to post your weight here, you can keep it private if you wish.

I just feel I need something to aim for.

Any takers ?


Start -
Monday, September 29th (or now if you'd like lol)
End -
Wednesday, November 26th
Goal -
15 BIG FAT POUNDS

Are we going to WI just once a week, or for those of us who have a hard time staying off the scale more than 3 days, can we report losses as we see them?

But Canadian Thanksgiving is in a few weeks! (Oct 13th)...and I don't think I can lose 15 lbs by then! lol

Did you realize that New Year's Eve is about 15 weeks away??? Maybe we need a 2004 challenge to lost 15 lbs by New Year's Eve? What a celebration???

Otherwise I'll send you my turkey leftovers...ha ha...I have already found some sugar free spiced cranberry sauce, and I am anxious to try it out!

Talking yupper......

Hey girls.....I"M IN FOR THE LONG HAUL!!! Put me in the challenge. I'm already part of another challenge with some friends not in 3FC, so what's one more? My weigh ins are on Fridays, I'll try to remember about Mondays though.....
Froufy......a sugar free cranberry sauce. YUMM.....come to think of it, my MIL makes one all the time!! (but she's a walking allergy person with a ton of reactions) I can't say that I've ever wanted to eat it though....given her track record. She once made an apple crisp.....but didn't use oatmeal (spelt flour) and did'nt use brown sugar (rice syrup) and didn't use all apples (also used peaches and apples) and ???? oh, the only thing she really used was cinnamon!!! lol, but other than that...IT WAS APPLE CRISP!!

Default COUNT ME IN!!

I'm game!!

However, I have one caveat that only applies to me.

I started Atkins this week, but am having abdominal surgery on the 9th so I don't know how my body will react to the IV's - the surgery may knock me out of ketosis.

I was hoping to wait until after the surgery but it kept getting put off so I started in spite of it.

Thankfully it is supposed to be a day surgery (unless it's worse than they think it is) and I should be home the same day. That will get me back on track faster than if I am in the hospital for a few days.

I also can't do any sort of exercise except walking until the surgery (C-section hernia).

But, I can do 15 pounds by Thanksgiving anyhow! What a great goal - I'll add it to my signature line.

What are we going to call this??

I'm in. I am also part of the Great Pumpkin Challenge on the LowCarb thread. The weigh in days are Monday. So this should keep me on track. My goal is to be in the 140's. I would be happy just to see the scale bounce off 149.

SBM, good luck with the surgery and don't worry you just do the best you can.

Sounds good to me. Monday will start my 2nd week.

I guess this will force me to get on the scale and see what the damage is.
