Well - I had intended on starting this challenge last week, but I didn't start until yesterday. Had to revamp my starting weight since I gained 5 pounds from holdiay eating. Yuck!

Good news though - lost 3 lbs already - I know it's just water - but I love Atkins for that really big loss in the beginning - great motivation!!

Now's as good a time as any to make my V-day goals. I won't post my meals or exercise here. I'll just update my weight loss

Goals by 2/14/06:

1: Get rid of drinking soda
2: drink more water
3: try to get more exercise in
4: Lose 11 pounds (hopefully more, but being realistic).
(Scale should say: 151)

Well, I did not do so good yesterday. I did not stay w/in my points for weight watchers and I did not exercise, but I did drink all of my H20!! I am doing very well today, though. So far, I have stayed w/in my points and did 30min. at Curves!!

Valentines goal:




1 jiggy for every 5lbs. lost

Morgaine - congrats on losing 3 of those 5lbs already . ITA about starting Atkins & that initial rapid loss. It rocks!

Welcome Glitzie . Congrats on your loss so far . 3.5 stone is 49lbs??

Just think of that as your free day Sassy. I don't exercise on Sundays - that's my day off .

Becca, sorry you're feeling blah. That TOM is sure a nuisance!!

Hey Beck - sorry to hear your kids are sick. I know when mine are sick it's impossible to get anything done around the house, never mind exercise! Hope they are better soon. Your menu sounds GREAT! Does Slim Fast still make L/C? Their LC products made a brief appearance where I live and haven't seen them since.

Default Happy to join in!

Hi there. I am brand new to this site, but not new to Atkins. I have done this diet many times and have done well, except I have never reached my goal because something has always come up and I've stopped the diet. This time I really hope and plan to reach my goal. I definitely want to join the Valentine Challenge. I started my diet on Jan 1st and have been really good (that's sounds funny I know). I will be starting the exercise part of this on Sat, the 7th. I am working 2 part time jobs which totals 40 hours a week, in college fulltime and drive my daughter to school, which is a 40 minute commute each way. So, needless to say, I'm pretty beat. Being the first week of this diet and having a sinus infection might also be contributing to this also...giggles. I am taking a "Weight Training" class at school (fully equiped gym) because it's cheaper, I need the credit and the biggest reason, READY for this?...I have to go and do it because I'm getting a grade!
I have a few questions I'm hoping someone on here might be able to help me with. 1.) I get severe cramping in my legs and feet when on Atkins. Besides eating a banana (which I can't do now), I need to find another way to fix or help this that will still keep me on the diet. This is a huge problem. 2.) Can I eat too few carbs? My family thinks I don't get enough carbs...but I think I'm fine. My normal day is around 8-10 carbs, sometimes a little more or less. 3.) How do I get those "Weight Trackers" onto my stuff...some people have several for different goals and I'd like to do that.
Ok, my Valentine Vixon Challenge goals:
  1. To get to about 160 pounds by Feb 14th.
  2. To keep up with my water.
  3. Exercise at least 3 times a week.
  4. I'm not sure of size (been in 16-18 for over two years), but a 12 sounds wonderful for Valentines Day. Even a 14 would be nice, I think.
  5. Limit coffee and Diet Coke to 2 or less a week.
  6. Stomach crunches everyday (truly my fave...so no excuses)
  7. Come to this forum everyday for support & hints & ideas.
  8. Stay on Induction until Feb 14th or later.
  9. Record my measurements weekly for encouragement.
  10. Actually eat some veggies!
And, RobinW and bnbsmommy1...can you share how you've lost so much weight and how long it's taken. I am really serious about getting to my goal and lose quickly at the beginning, but you've really lost a lot! Either a private message or in here would be great.Thanks.
Thanks for listening. I look forward to talking to some of you who are dieting.
Laura
