Hi Low Carb Friends!
I wanted to pop in and say hello on this final day of Blitz IV. I am so proud of you all!

FF and tony...I still enjoy peeking in on you guys. You are always good for a giggle...and occasionally I even learn something!! I adore you men-folk!

I've enjoyed getting to "know" the ladies that came in after me. What a wonderfully supportive group of folks you have here!

I've been doing a Paleo type diet and going by just how my clothes are fitting. I know I'm a good 30 lbs away from goal at this point, but it seems to be healthier for me if I am unaware of the numbers.

I'm looking forward to following your progress on Blitz V!!!!
<---Avatar Summer 2009. Soooo close to goal and then had a mad, passionate weekend with sugar. Let me be a lesson to you. Not sure you're strong enough to cheat and then get right back on plan?? Then don't do it!!

u are most welcome, Tony8.

I must also inject a debt of gratitude to u Tony, for the 9pm curfew. it is helping me in so many ways. For 1 thing, the little lightbulb in the fridge lasts twice as long. Also, I wake up (so far) every day w/o feeling like 2 lbs of bologna in a 1 lb. bag. TO ALL OUR BLITZERS: i hope y' all continue in Blitz V, developing and strengthening eating behaviors that will see us to PERMANENT weight loss. I can't do it w/o you. Love & Profits: FLATFERENGHI

ff and Tony, you brought tears to my eyes - literally!

This thread is so much more than just a weight loss accountability tool, although that is important. It is also a thread of encouragement during times of defeat and self-loathing for succombing to past bad habits.

It is a safe thread and for that I am truly thankful!

There is so much more to be learned than what to eat and how much of it to eat. There are habits to be broken; hurts to heal; behaviours to modify and we are doing that - thanks to all of us who are either participating now, or have in the past.

Thank you, Vicki, for leading me to this thread. What a great bunch of people!

I am looking forward to the next 3 months of the Blitz!

So, now for the good news - I'm down 7 pounds since Saturday. But for the month I didn't lose - I gained 6 pounds because of sickness. I am not discouraged! It will come off.

Congratulations Nancy! You are doing so well!

I best get to work. Take care. TTYL
Losing weight is hard. Maintaining is hard. Being fat is hard. PICK YOUR HARD!

Good morning everyone!

FF and Tony what great posts this morning! To be able to look back over the past year and recognize your improvements is such a fabulous thing....I am very impressed with your progress and so very proud to be part of this amazing group. I am delighted that I found you all and I agree with Marilee that this thread is SO MUCH MORE than an accountability tool. I genuinely enjoy checking in every day to see how everyone is doing, and I truly miss you if I don't. The encouragement, love and support everyone has here for each other has made all of the difference for me and I am proud to report that largely thanks to you guys I have lost 26 pounds since I started this journey at the first of the year!!!

I am definitely planning to join you for blitz V, and I will now give some serious thought to what my specific goals will be for the next 3 months....see you on the next thread!!

Be the type of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says "Oh Crap....she's up"!!

Made it to Onederland 7/1/14!!!

i am a little calmer now.

Of course i am delighted that I did not gain.I am even more delighted that there is 70.6 lbs less of me than last year. I truly believe that the scale did not accurately reflect my efforts this week. But, gosh darn, would it not be nice, if I could have started year 2 by being in 2-dorland?. well i am going to another WW meeting on Sunday. perhaps what i do (and do not) between now and Sun a.m. will shake things up a bit for me.

Wow--I can't believe it's been a year since the Blitzes started!

I have struggled alot in the last year and haven't come as far as I might have hoped...I have lost ALOT of pounds but also gained them, then lost them, etc. I'm down about 15lbs though from this time last year and to tell the truth if I can do that again in the next year I will be thrilled because I could easily be 30lbs heavier without fighting the fight. I think for me having a place to go and be accountable but also be understood has meant alot.

I'm not doing to great this week, way too many slip ups, etc. but I'm holding pretty much steady so I just need to eat as healthy as possible, take care of myself and get back into that headspace of losing without having gained any--then I can make some progress.

so great to see u, kbeth.

how, in the names of the Gods, are u? Paleo is a great way to go. beginning in c8000bc, when HEWMONS learned agriculture, it was not long before degenerative diseases began. But, agriculture, and other occupations were still quite labor intensive, so that the degenerative diseases did not rear their ugly heads in voluminous statistics until the 20th century. I am gradually easing into a more paleo repertoire over the course of time. Please stay in the loop. Tony8 has already generated Blitz V, which begins tomorrow, April 1, my 1st ATKINSversary.
