Okay, Atkins Chicks,

Let's go for the 20 Pounds by Halloween Challenge. Tomorrow is August 1.

That's 13 weeks and 2 days to lose 20 Pounds...I know we can do it!

Check your weight today (or use yesterday's weight if you have it). Then next Saturday weigh in and post your progress. If Saturday doesn't work for you, pick a day and post your current weight.

If posting your weight makes you unhappy, just post your progress. This thread is about challenge, support and encouragement for each of us. Enjoy your day, Startanew!

Default Trying out a new restaurant tonight...

A friend invited me to try a new restaurant with her tonight. I checked - no menu online. I know they specialize in "Mediterranean, Spanish and Greek dining." Hmmmm...I don't know anything about Spanish food; Greek, I love, but all I'm familiar with is pretty carby.

So, I'm thinking I'll find some sort of grilled seafood dish, probably a Mediterranean-inspired something. And surely they serve a Greek salad, a small version? We'll see.

I'm determined to stay as Atkins as possible. I'm certainly not entirely on plan, but I have managed to stay out of anything "white" - flour, sugar, etc. for almost two weeks.

WE CAN DO IT!

HEY, I didn't see the lightening bolt - cool ticker! I wanted a pumpkin, but didn't see one. Maybe as it gets closer....

Going strong. I can tell I'm shrinking, I'm upset, stressed out and not hungry - HA, what a benefit right now. I haven't weighed back in since Saturday though. I'll update then.

Our first full week is coming to an end. Weigh-in and see how we've done. Regardless of what I weigh, I've been successful at keeping away from sugar and all things "white" - bread, crackers, rolls, potatoes, rice.

I'm working on more water, fewer artificially sweetened foods and drinks. It's been way too hot to walk, but I'm going to start anyway this evening before it gets dark.

Stay the course, Atkins Chicks! WE CAN DO IT!
