yay! An autumn baby! How cute!! Being pregnant is so exciting! You will do great Amber, you seem to be on the right track~Congrats again to you and your hubby! oh and Congrats on the new job!! Woohoo! Looks like things are going really great 4 you! I'm happy for you

things seem to be going well for me, too I have been a good girl..hehe. Been trying new foods and keeping positive. I do believe that I can low carb it for life. It seems reasonable, especially the low carb foods on the market. They help!~tortillas~ So versatile! Here's what I had today:
B: Green chile sausage omelet..mmmm.
L: ham and cheese rolls
D: tacos! yum yum!

I worked out at curves and I danced here at home this evening because I love to dance!

The other night, a lady I know from my former church said I looked like I've lost weight! She said she could tell it on my face, wow....talk about encouraging and motivating! I can't wait to show you all my after pic. I can see a signifigant differance...maybe you will agree

Ok, Good night & God Bless!!

Well, my body seems to be getting back with the program. I finally broke through 169 this morning for the THIRD time since starting Atkins. My body just wanted to keep bouncing around between 169-172 and did so for two weeks. Hopefully I'm on the way down again.

No one has said they noticed my weight loss yet, but 11 pounds isn't really enough to notice, so that's ok. This morning *I* noticed though, when I was getting dressed for work. I wear hip-hugger sort of panties - Hanes for women, they just don't go all the way up to the waist. Anyway - for the first time ever - I don't have a pouch of fat hanging down over the waistband - woohoo!!!!! So - I seem to definitely be losing in the tummy/pooch area right now - that's nice.

I have been forgetting to check in, mon and tues I got alot of exercise, I was working on routines for my students ( belly dance class) for a performance we have comming up feb 17th and I had to do some of them over and over and over again..I really *worked it* the past few days..unfortantly I could of done better diet wise, I dont think I really went over with carbs that much, but my in general porportion size of things was a little much. My period started today though, so that could of been why I was a little big in Pig out mode.
I am a bit tired feeling so far today, but its cloudy and like I said..first day of cycle, and I have been super active the past 3 days so I may need a lazy day today:0

Hi everyone
I m not really on a v-day challenge but i am hoping to get past phase one by v-day.
I have a question.
How do you all feel about Bacon.? (no not kevin bacon)
Do you avoid it because it is high in fat? Or does that matter to you?

Hi all!! Well, I have been doing pretty good. I haven't been eating too much junk. I do have the occasional treat though. Got to give in every now and then. The pregnancy is going pretty well. I don't really have any morning sickness. My breasts are sore though and my lower back is killing me. I have been doing prenatal yoga though which really helps. I've still been going to Curves 3x a week too!! Hope everyone is doing well!!!






I hope to only gain 25lbs:

I just realized that I have only 4 and a half pounds to go to reach this goal. Just over a week to reach it... I wonder if it can be done?

Did not too bad yesterday, messed up last night, but the day was a success I'll take it....it usually takes me a couple days to get right back into the swing of things.

Today's plan

Breaky~ protein/fibre shake
Lunch~
Supper~ chicken and spinach salad

Morgaine~ I would assume another challenge will start up right after this one, if you want to start it up yourself, go ahead.

Has anyone thought about when they want the next challenge to end? Easter? St Paddy's day? or a 2/4 or 6 week challenge?

I know that all your support, encouragement and advise have played a HUGE part in my success. Thank you!!! Here's what I ate today...breakfast has been the same for almost 2 wks~because I like it sooo much!

B: Green chile cheese omelet and 2 sausage patties
L: breakfast bar~strawberry, mmm!
D: 1 1/2 Tortilla burgers with green chile(my hubby ate the other half,hehe...maybe I can slowly get him to eat low carb!)

And that's it.....My clothes have been fitting loose.Yay!! Good luck with the weight loss!! God bless you all!
