thanks princess, hi everybody.

the procedure went well yesterday and my colon is fine...lol

my weight on the other hand is a disappointment this morning, 246 lbs ??? i think stress affects my body...
anyway this is where i'm at and those are the numbers that i will be hacking away at this month

wishing everybody the best in february, we can do this

princessmommy 02-01-2013 05:56 AM

So glad your procedure went Great Mydear!!

sueshe 02-01-2013 07:18 AM

Good morning everyone!

mydear, so glad everything is ok!! That weight will come off in no time! Don't stress over that or it will make it worse!

01/23 216.5
01/24 216.0
01/25 214.5 (: back to where I was yipee
01/28 211.0
01/29 211.0 TOM
01/30 210.0 TOM
01/31 208.5
02/01 207.0:jumpjoy:

Dang, I have lost 7.5 lbs in one week!!

Walked 30 minutes last night, increased my speed to 3.0 mph. Hubby was on a nibble binge last night, liked to drove me crazy. I kept going in and looking at the pantry, knowing there was nothing in there for me to eat. I finally told him to stop and went and worked on my afghan. Dang husbands anyway.:laugh:

So, my February goal is going to be 191. That's a total of 16 lbs for the month or 4 pounds a week....very doable for my first month. I usually slow down going into my second month, more like 2-2.5 lbs a week. Getting excited at the thought of getting there :) Also, to be walking for an hour by the end of the month

Today's menu:

B: bacon
L: salad with dressing
D: Ryan's, so probably steak and green beans, maybe a small salad

Hope you all have a great day!

Good morning everyone!!!

Well, I was down only one pound from my weight at Jan. 3. -- which is not what I'd have preferred, but that's OK... I'm wearing size 6 in just about all clothes, and feeling good! Make that great! Ate out the past two nights and my feet are swollen, so that may have something to do with it...going skiing tomorrow...back on sunday for a pre-superbowl chili cookoff gig!!! Yummy!

Saw my January goal last Monday (110), but bounced back to my plateau of 111.5 the next day and seem to be stuck here. Goal for Feb. 105. There I said it, wrote it down, posted it - now I just need to get there. I was diagnosed with a collapsed disc just over two years ago, which halted my daily 3 mile run, then I sprained my ankle which took FOREVER to heal, but I just started running (o.k. jogging) again last weekend and I'm so happy - the easiest cardio workout ever - and free!!!!

2f2f 02-01-2013 08:22 AM

Good morning everyone - ended January at 242! Very excited. My goal for February is 235.

LoriAS 02-01-2013 09:06 AM

mydear - So glad everything went well and also love the new pics!

sueshe - I hope the doc's plan works for you. That would be horrible to have headaches everyday.

Feb goal - 165

Feb 1: 172.0 still sick - ugh! so haven't ran in too many days. Hoping to start back tomorrow

princessmommy 02-01-2013 01:06 PM

Went shopping with my mom today. I'm broke lol so she did the buying I just looked. I found The cutest top at Jcpenny on clearance for 7.00 and she insisted on buying it for me it's a pea green color which i've never worn, sleeveless and a size Medium! Eekk! I was afraid it would be to small but I tried it on for mom and she Loved it and says it fits perfect for summer! It's pretty form fitting but I guess I can't keep wearing baggy shirts forever Lol

These are my FAVORITE victories! I love when I got to the store and pick out something that is just TOO cute and not only does it FIT, but it is a STEAL!

Pure Delight!

AllieBee 02-01-2013 05:00 PM

May I join?!?

I don't know my current weight on February 1, but I will try to find somewhere to weigh in tomorrow morning. My goal for the end of February is 210, too unrealistic? Maybe I'll see what my current is so I can set my goal more accurately. I'm only on day 5!

twinkerbell 02-01-2013 11:29 PM

Hi! I would like to join! I'm starting this month at 259, aiming for 245-249 by the end of Feb. Will see how it goes!

princessmommy 02-02-2013 06:38 AM

Welcome Laurel and AllieBee!! It's great to have ya'll with us!
Lori the top is more dressy the I usually wear so i'm going to have to get used to it and it's tighter so i'm not super comfortable in it yet but my Hubby Gave it a Huge grin and 2 thumbs up Lol!

Feb Goal- 145
Feb 1st- 151
Feb 2nd- 150.6

Laurie 02-02-2013 09:37 AM

4lb loss in the first 3 days back! I am not necessarily a new member, I went on atkins back in '97, my sophmore year of highschool and lost 90lbs before my senior year. I maintained the weightloss till about '07... Now I am back on the mend, and highly motivated. Glad there is such a friendly bunch of you to help keep us all motivated, something lacking the first time I did it. Cheers!

LoriAS 02-02-2013 09:53 AM

Hi there- hoping to jump in on this challenge.

Our whole house is getting over the stomach flu and colds and I can't wait together back on plan, good old fashion induction.

I am around 174 right now so hoping for 168 by the end of feb. I am weaning my LO right now so I may still be BF through the month and it is seriously killing my weight loss.

Roasting some chicken thighs and prepping some veg so I am prepared!

Best of luck all

Lileve 02-02-2013 03:52 PM

Hi all, I hope it's okay if I join ...

I restarted in Jan after taking a hiatus for pregnancy & being busy with a LO and my toddler.
I did very well the first 2 weeks but have lost nothing since then. Last two days I even went off plan.
But I'm back now and hoping to do much better :)
I look forward to meeting the challenge with all of you!

Feb goal: 178

Feb. 1: 187 lbs
Feb. 2: 188 lbs

Count me in for the February Challenge!!
I need some good support and motivation. I'm up 2-3lb since last Sunday and pretty upset about it. Just about to start wk 4, a total loss of 12lbs, now 10lbs. Just curious, how much differences do you ladies see during TOM? It hasn't come yet but I'm thinking within the next 5days or so. I'm thinking and hoping that's why my weight is up.
I've also up'd my calories from 1200 to 1450 after someone suggested the change...maybe why weight is up??

Extra challenge today: going to birthday party of my best friend's son, taking my oldest DD. There will be a delicious homemade birthday cake ... I must be strong. She knows i lc though and will usually add sine snacks like veggie things and nuts ...

Hello everyone! I am new to LowCarb Friends, but not new to Atkins. I have been browsing the forums for a month now, but could never seem to figure out a way to post. Guess I had to check my e-mail to activate my account! lol

Anyway, this is my first post, and I would love to join the February challenge! I've been in induction for a month now, and lost 10 lbs. I've been losing slow and steady, can't seem to lose anymore then a pound and a half a week, but I will take that because I don't have far to go :)

Feb goal: 190

hi everybody...welcome to all the new people

i'm still retaining water and my weight hasn't changed yet, but i'm focused and i've added a resistance routine for my upper body so i should be seeing the numbers going back down any day now.

princess, lori & avy good to see that you all are hanging in there. keep up the good work

Ang01 02-03-2013 03:03 PM

Hi all,

I'm new to the site and y'all are so inspiring! I read all of your posts all the time and finally decided to join because I need more inspiration. I want to join the challenge with you! I only lost 3 pounds on induction in the first week, which I know doesn't sound bad, but I've had no loss in three days and actually gained one back. My goal for February is to lose 8 pounds! I will continue in Induction until I see that scale move!! Thank you for all of your great posts!
