I just might make my RGW just might or WILL! lol

smith... I hope you had a downward movement today?! 171???

Simply... I am so sorry if I had not answered your question about the beer diet... IANG (one of our wonderful posters in the 5 lbs off area - not doing Atkins however) eats breakfast and lunch and just has beer for dinner (NO FOOD)... Its a god send when you have a stall as it flushes the water out of you and as long as you do not eat... it works.... I just try it 1 night a week to get rid of the add on water weight... or if I have had enough. It does work... (He likes HOPPY Beers)... But this is not part of Atkins.. so I can't recomend it... I just had gotten to my last straw (but now I might have a physical reason for my stalls... will find out in the future when I get my Thyroid checked)..
Thanks Hmm I have a few Amstel lights in the fridge lol

I hope you find the reason for your stalls!

Thank you Simply.. ME too (Finding a reason for my stalls and My Thyroid swelling)... and my hair loss and no eye brows and and and LOLOLOL

Hope everyone has a wonderful day... I am back up to 248... but that was cause I had a teaspoon of Iodized salt to see if that would settle my thyroid (I have not had salt On my food (its in all food.. just not iodized) since last fall... so that might be a reason my thyroid is Not Happy) and of course I just felt the water getting soaked up... I did not pee for 12 hours after I ate that salt... SO WILD! LOL

Yeah back down to 246.5 Up 2 lbs down 1.5 lbs in 2 days.. Strange Life!

Thank you Smith and I am hoping that your scale is treating you nicer today!

I do have a Doctors apt on Friday... instead of my thyroid.. they are thinking its my Caritod artery/gland? Wierd... I just hope whatever it is... that its not a major item and anything to worry about...

Have a wonderful day all!

I'd have them check the thyroid too!

I'm up to 173, I've been putting some miles on the treadmill so I'm hoping its all muscle. Either that or beer, but it's the miller 64, low carb/cal beer. I added another day to my work week too. I'm such a sucker!

Well I am in my whoosh week FINALLY.. down to 245.. but going out to Bonefish Grill tonight.. gnash teeth as I love the Coconut Shrimp argh... well salad it is... maybe I can get them to just grill shrimp (not on menu).. but get to see some of my Beading/Jewelry making friends I have not seen in 2 months..

Sue...yea, swoosh time!! Glad to hear your neck is doing better, hopefully just a passing thing. Have fun tonight, the shrimp sound very good!! I'm sure they can throw some on the grill, but then again, you only live once. Have a great time!

I'm just bouncing along....172 today, running scheduled for tonight

I had some bud light 55 earlier this week and it has only 1.5 carbs each and I ate dinner and still lost 3 pounds this week! I hope it wasn't all water!

Oh loved the Coconut Shrimp last night (Only 2 carbs per Horrraayyy) tasty... and was hard to watch everyone else eat the bread, Crab cakes, Fish tacos... but that is ok...ALL that stuff is there if I want it tomorrow! just gotta remind myself that!

SO... Down another lb! yeah 244 now... Closer to 230's than the 250's I feel better... Now 2-3 more lbs so that I can have lost 6 for the month would be WONDERFUL!

Miller 64 tastes soo much better! Great job with the pound loss!!

Sue....great job at dinner and I can't believe the loss!! That is awesome....

Happy Saturday!!! Just checking in from my bittersweet staycation!!! Dropped my oldest off at college yesterday!! The past 3 weeks have been an emotional train wreck for me but I have stuck to plan as much as possible. Holding at 187 - so not going to get into the 170s for this challenge. I'm ok with that.....glad I have not gone backward. At the pizza/beer party at my sister-in-laws, I did not eat pizza or drink beer!!! Best wishes to everyone on downdowndown!!!

Oh Lulu... here you are dropping off your child as a child who will become an adult (college) and welcomed your sisters new baby earlier this summer. The wheel of life.... I send you hugs as I know it is hard for children to be away for a time to "grow" and learn.... I am sure you taught her well and she knows he is loved!

Smith... Me too... I am a Miller drinker LOL and Look at you!!!! so close to the 160's now.. YEAH.. I am glad that your roller coaster is on the down slide Yeah baby!

How is everyone doing? I hope hanging in there.... I would love to have you all join my Whoosh Train this week... Hop on board!!!

Happy Sunday!!!! It's my 28th wedding anniversary this morning!! We are going out to breakfast at a local diner and that makes it easy to do Atkins!! Steak at home for dinner tonight!

Ok so my non-scale victory...... I can shop the regular sizes now. While I was taking my daughter back to school shopping, I got busy trying on clothes just to see where I was and I don't need the "woman's" sizes anymore! Regular 18 or 16. I tried on clothes at Kohl's and Old Navy!!! It was exhilarating to say the least. I read an article that mentioned losing 10 percent of your weight and then if you need to lose more re-start your weight loss. So I am making a recommitment to lose the next 27 pounds!! Wannaskipandlaugh I saw your Christmas challenge and it inspired me too!! You will be entering Onederland for the new year!!!!
