Good morning, having a hectic week.

Trying to stay on plan, exercising like a fool - still don't feel the "no hunger" thing that I desparately want to get to

Tasha - I am so jealous - I want to feel like you (likle sick to my stomach) What you are describing is just how I felt like 12 yrs ago when I lost 40 lbs........am I too old? why is it not working? My blood sugar is way down due to no carbs but the scale ain't moving???

I AM NOT GOING TO GIVE UP, I AM NOT GOING TO GIVE UP!!

it will Cheryl, just keep with it. The only thing I can see that I am doing different this time than the other times when I wasn't losing is I am eating completely clean. No extras at all and absolutely no cheats.. When I say clean, I mean like, Old school clean....Only the vegetables allowed and I watch my portions even on those, I try to eat more chicken and fish than red meat, but I do have my share of red meat. I limit my cheese to 2-3 slices or ounces a day. Am drinking about 64 ounces or more of water with Crystal lite in it, and at least 1-2 diet sodas a day. I haven't been exercising like I should be.... It helps not being hungry because food isn't constantly on my mind like it was, I don't feel like eating, just do it because I have to. If there is anything I can do to help you, I will....don't know what it would be, but if there is, just let me know!!! I want you to feel sick at your stomach too!!!

i knew i shouldn't have gotten on the scale, i knew it i knew it!!! it's tom and i haven't been having all the water i should. but i did it anyway. it read 196.4. i said eff you, scale! got on and off 7 times until it read 197.2. then i said, eff you, big time, scale! and i kicked it. boyfriend says from other side of the door, umm everthing okay in there? so i'm going to pretend this whole episode didn't happen.

i felt really thin this morning, like my upper torso was noticibly smaller, maybe i just imagined it, but i felt like i could tempt tom fate and maybe be a leeeeeddle bit less. but no. awe well.

thank you her so much....she is just the light in my day when I get to spend time with her. She is so sweet and gives hugs and kisses all the time, just a really happy little girl! And is beautiful to boot

I wouldn't tell them this, but they have been talking about trying to have another one....and I almost feel jealous for Ella. Is that weird? LOL I know I will love another one just as much, but hate for all the attention to be taken off of her. She will be in pre-school by then, but still....

you are too funny. I know how that goes....I actually was feeling the opposite this morning, a little bloated and pudgier than usual, but scale was down.

Tasha - Ella can be the Big Sister! That is the role I played up to Danielle when I had Ashley - it worked out well. Both in their 20's and close to each other.

BlondieBlue - if I am not happy with my scale, I go and weigh myself on my daughter's usually hers is higher so I accomplish nothing but real aggravation.......my scale is not moving either..............


I am going to be super duper good for these two days and hopefully I will be rewarded on Friday!!!

Hey gals,

Since I stopped taking the raspberry ketones on Friday (because the scale didn't move at all in a week) I have lost 2.5 lbs as of this morning! I stopped weighing everyday because I too was cursing out the scale. lol. I will weigh in again on Friday...

Day 18, 17 days cheat free

Stuck to my menu last night. I was actually really hungry before supper, but I didn't snack, not even cheese. Made baked pork chops and garlic butter asparagus. Was pretty yummy if I do say so myself!

Today's menu:

B: nothing
L: salad with ranch
D: maybe some egg drop soup, or omelet and bacon

Hope everyone has a great day, weigh in tomorrow!!! Hoping we have LOTS of losses!!!

Happy Friday....

I weighed in @ 188 this morning gained 1/2 lb from Wednesday. I haven't cheated @ all. I'm down to eating twice a day cause I'm just not hungry. Thought I'd be showing more of a weight loss on that darned scale. 2 lbs lost is better then no lbs lost.

Cheryl, stick with it. I've become a slow loser too. Unlike the first time around. I'm sure we're losing alot of inches and that scale will eventually reward us. We can't give up now.

Good morning everyone! Weigh in day...yeeha! NOT! LOL

my weight today is 206.0. -3 pounds from last Friday, and down 14 lbs for March!! I went off on 3/9, ate like a little piggy, and on the 12th, weighing at 221.5, I restarted induction. I have not gone off since, today is my day 19, 18 days cheat free! and I'm down 15.5 pounds since the 12th. I usually don't pat myself on the back, but considering how hard it was for me to finally get back on the wagon, I'm pattin'

Patty and Cheryl, you guys hang in there! You will lose, even slow is better than not at all!

Today's menu:

L: not sure, have no money, so we'll have to see....
D: turkey burger with swiss, grilled cabbage YUM!

Hope everyone has a great weekend! Stay on plan and drink your water!

15.5 lbs in less then 3 weeks is AMAZING Tasha!

I went dress shopping today since my brother is taking me out tomorrow night. He say's I'm cooped up in my house to much with the kiddos and since hubby works 60 hours a week he can't take me. Anyway, Im so used to pulling the size 16 dresses or XL if there sized S,M,L,XL. Well the 16's were swimming on me so I grabbed a 14 and a 12 in one style and a L and M in another style. The 12 fit great and so did the Medium!!! So obviously I'm losing serious inches, I probably should have measured myself all around before I started back up on Atkins.

I still want to stick with my same goal of 10lbs for April. Even though I didn't come close to 10lbs in March.

Anyone know what the safest "cocktail" I can drink tomorrow night without doing too much damage?

yes, though, I originate from NJ. I picked my screen name because my kids always complain that the house is hot! What was or is your favorite Florida beach? I'm about 30-35 minutes from Cocoa Beach.

I was raised in the Longwood, Sanford, Winter Springs area. Loved Cocoa Beach, so beautiful. We usually went to New Smyrna since it was closer to us. I have just recently fallen in love with the gulf coast, such a huge difference in water clarity, color and beautiful white sand beaches. My Mom lives in Jacksonville and there is a beach by St Augustine we love called Anastasia Island. I love just about any beach though, would live there if I could get dh to move

Yes, we went to Destin last October for our 20th anniversary. Beautiful! We are going to Cape San Blas this June for a week, pretty secluded beaches, turtles will be laying their eggs then, can't wait!

Have you guys ever been to Siesta Key or Anna Marie Island on the Gulf?
Beautiful - much quieter (and cheaper than Marco Island or Sanibel)

I love the Gulf! - I also love the ocean. I am thinking of going to Amelia Island this summer - Tassha - have you ever been?

I didn't do 100% this weekend - I guess I can not get motivated. I am trying again today BUT I am not weighing until Friday -

I know a few people that are losing like crazy on the HCG??? - Anybody know about it???
