Welcome Sunnynurse! I'm a second time around Atkins girl too...I know it works if I just work it!

Labor Day wasn't perfect, but not too bad. Back on track today. I enjoyed stocking my fridge at school today, and it was great to have cold water and a good lunch handy.

More signs of Santa yesterday...the Dollar Store has their decorations, Christmas wrap and all sorts of nonsense all over the place...

Cher, thanks for the encouraging words and that big sprinkle of

Thanks for the welcome, Cher and Sandy. It's very tough to get back on track. But......I'm going to do it! Good luck to you guys.

Default On Track...

It is tough to get back on plan, but I think it's tougher to carry an extra 8 ten-pound bags of taters. I have good days and not so good days and moments when I think it's too much to deal with, but I know that my health and my happiness are more important than sugar and flour.

We CAN DO IT!

Well ladies - it's 'hump day' today & I don't know about you, but I am dog-tired and I need an extra shot of energy and motivation to get through today! (maybe another will do???)

It is hard to get motivated. I have a bootcamp class today that I need to push myself to go to. I wear shorts to it and have gotten it into my head that I look ridiculous ...... and I have to keep brushing that negative thought away and just remember what I am doing this for.

Default Bootcamp...

Bootcamp is such a great thing to do...you get lots of gold stars for actually going! I wish I had time to do something like that; the most I can do is walk my dog. I leave home before 7 and never get home before 5, which includes an hour and half commute to school. EXHAUSTING!

I'm with you, Cher. It's only Wednesday, and I'm wiped out. High school kids and all the hoo-ha that surrounds teaching just sucks the life right out of me. I'm walking Puddin' around 7; I have to rest up!

I realized today that when I lose the 30 lbs from this challenge (when we all lose these 30 pounds!!) I will have lost 102 total and be just 20 from my ultimate goal. That got me really excited! Thanks Cher for starting this challenge and best of luck to everyone participating! We got this

Ayda-K...I'm sorry, I missed you You'll be well on your way to meeting your goal for sure!!!!

.... on a side note .... I PASSED MY EXAM!!!!!

I quote: "Regarding the exam, it was a very well thought out analysis of the transcript. You hit everything that I thought about it myself. I simply cannot add anything extra to it."

so I guess I can say goodbye to emotional eating

Default Thursday ... dun-dun-dunnnn

Enough with yesterdays emotional eating, I'm getting back on track - drinking my water & eating my eggs!

With 2 days to go til weigh-in, I've gotta mind my p's & q's

Have a great day chickies!

/cher

pssst... I'm thankful for this challenge - after yesterdays little splurge, I would've thrown in the towel, and continued eating off plan - but because we have a weigh-in, last night before bed, I 'pulled up my socks', said to myself, "self - this is only a blip. you can turn around from this & chose to start eating properly again to lose weight for Saturday" .... (just thought I'd share)

I'd like to jump in also...I was 184.6 last Saturday, 4th September. I'm not sure if I can manage 30 lbs by Christmas, but if I don't it won't be for lack of trying.

I've been using Atkins for about 6 weeks now, as a change from my first 7 1/2 months of calorie counting this year; I think my metabolism got too used to what I was doing and I got pretty badly stalled. So, I decided to shift a bit and take a different approach to eating, and of course continue my exercise regimen. If I don't exercise my weight number just sits there, I'm afraid. The scale is moving again... I think I will manage 2 lbs this week.
