O.K. It was requested that we start this thread today....although the challenge does not start until Monday 3/29. I guess everyone can check in here and be set and up and ready for Monday.
No real rules..... You know best what works for you. Our weigh-in day will be on Mondays. Regardless of what your size is or will be come summer... the more you can drop by then the better..... you will look better.... feel better.... and if you are not at goal.... you will be closer than you are now and on your way to dropping even more over the LONG HOT SUMMER!!!
I don't know about you... but I am sick and tired of looking and feeling much older than I am (and I am old enough at 57). I will eat right.... I will add in exercise.... and I will learn to enjoy my life!:up:
So, hope to see you all here on Monday... weighed in and ready to go. You can post your meals if you want..... if not....dont! Just drop in and we can motivate each other to keep on keeping on!

Vicki I am excited about this. I am 46 and have got to do this.
I HATE how I look and feel in the summers here (in Orlando).. it's incredibly hot and I don't really enjoy doing much of anything.. even my walking gets very hard because of the heat and I end up having to get up and out like 5am just to be able to do it.

I want to feel more comfortable in the heat this year, I want to actually enjoy living here.

Looking very forward to Monday everyone!

hummingbird11 03-27-2010 08:08 AM

Hey y'all, on Monday, do ya think we oughta each "declare" our individual personal goals for this challenge?? ;)

michmich 03-27-2010 08:35 AM

I'd love to join, too. I need to lose 15 lbs. I'm reading the new Atkins book this weekend and will do my grocery shopping tomorrow. I'm in Texas and the weather has been really beautiful. After feeling like we've been in hibernation, it's so nice to get outdoors, but I know about that summer heat. I don't want to be overweight in the heat of the summer. YUCK. Not a fun feeling...I want tank tops and shorts. Not 3/4 sleeves and capris.

Sammyann 03-27-2010 08:43 AM

I'm joining too. I really want to get to goal (or lower) by the time we leave for our vacation in Florida @ the end of June.

Good luck, everyone!

NewMe12 03-27-2010 10:04 AM

Spring Promise to me: Getting back on track!
Hi Everyone! Count me in! You will help keep me motivated.

Shimmer 03-27-2010 11:21 AM

I'll be back Monday!

Happyone81 03-27-2010 12:46 PM

I am in! I want to stay on plan so that I can reach my goal by my anniversary cruise in July. This is my umteenth time losing on Atkins but for the pass three years I have not been able to get it together and stay on plan longer than a month. So this is perfect for me. I am so ready. I refuse to be fat in the Mediterranean!

Sooner2bethin 03-27-2010 07:58 PM

Happyone81 - We went on a Mediterranean cruise last summer. You will love it. You are doing great so far and good luck with the ongoing weight loss.

Happyone81 03-27-2010 08:05 PM

Sooner- Thanks for the motivation. I am so excited for the cruise? Do you know any Italian? What was your favorite part of the cruise? I'm gonna milk you for all you've got. lol

I do! I think a goal is a MAJOR motivator.. I actually have a spreadsheet on my fridge with weekly goals.. and I know it helps to keep me focused.

Sooner2bethin 03-28-2010 10:41 AM

I learned a few Italian words and phrases, but we did not really need to know any. Most everyone spoke English. Is Greece one of your stops? Hardly anyone speaks English there and that is where we had the hardest time communicating and getting around. We loved Rome, Florence, and the Naples area. What are your ports?
If you would like you can email me at jcook08@mac.com with any questions.

sweetpoison 03-28-2010 01:28 PM

Well.... Monday is just a stones throw away. I have a chicken roasting in the oven...... might put a beef roast in the crock pot. I hate to cook during the week after work and the old boy has to eat also. Of course my stomach is acting up today..... sure hope I dont get sick for spring break (I usually do)... I have 4 days to work this week and then I am off for good friday and next week...looks like maybe some nice weather... I so want to enjoy... and of course... clean house (right.........).
See ya tomorrow folks.
