I would like to join in. I'm gonna try for 15 by Thanksgiving. I'm currently at 183. 168 was also my goal for the gpc. I don't think I'm gonna get it off by Halloween though. I've only lost 5 pounds since that one started. I think I have the slowest metabolism in the world. 15 by Thanksgiving sounds pretty realistic to me. I've got to get myself motivated enough to exercise.

Good luck to all of us!

I'm in as of today. I'd like to lose 15 by Thanksgiving. I think having folks to check in with daily really helps. Good luch to everyone. Can someone suggest some meal plans for lunch?

Awww Barb, so sorry the cookie monster got to you, that happened to me last saturday except I didn't have one cookie...oy. And I felt miserable after I piged out. But so far this week I'm doing good, so onward we must go. You know, you should pat yourself for stoping after one cookie, I would have finished the box. Good Job !!

I'm praying for everyone this week, that we all have some sort of movement in the scale (or tape measure).

We need a name for our group, a fun name....any suggestions ?

Hi Jodes !! you know that question regarding lunch suggestions/idea's would make a nice thread.. please do.

Okay.

I had a lesson in Atkins this weekend. I have never been surrounded by more sweets than I have in the past 5 days. Guess how many times I cheated??? ZERO!!

Okay, so my lesson? I weighed in at 277 on Sunday morning. By Monday morning, I weighed 283. WTF?? How could that have happened... I was very sad... I didn't cheat... I stayed ON program. I didn't drink quite enough water on Sunday because I was out and about... but still.... 6 pounds??

So, I was really sad about this but decided to stick with it. Well waht do you know... the first AF I've had since MAY showed up. (not unusual, I'm still nursing off and on.) And by this morning I was back down to 277. So, because of that variation, I'm counting my starting weight as 277 which puts me at 262 before Thanks giving.

So, I lost 8 pounds my first week... and am still at 8 pounds thanks to AF.

This is SOOOO cool. I'm glad all of us have joined in.

I'm confused - what else is new!
Are we weighing in each Monday AM?
Maybe we should have a weekly weigh in thread but use this one to talk about our challenges/successes?

We could keep a running tally of how much the group has lost as a whole.... Maybe?

Hey all! Could I possibly join in for the challenge. I know that I am a little late, but better late than never, right???

Right now I seem to be stuck at this one weight, and it isn't moving....grrr, it is so frustrating.

Anyhow, could someone please let me know how the challenge works, and how often I need to let you know my weight. I currently weigh-on on Wednesday's, since I have to work nights on Fri and Sat, I have found that I seem to gain some water when I stay up all night.

BTW ~ does anyone have a recipe for homemade mayonnaise, I have one from the Atkins recipe book, but I was searching for another one.....any suggestions???

Thanks!!!!!!!

Caroline
