Hello all!

Great job Glenellen. You must be so happy. WTG!

I lost 2.5 this week leaving me .5 away from my mini goal of 10 lbs. I am fairly certain I can reach that by wednesday.An Easter challenge sounds great. I hope you will all let me stick around after Wednesday. Your suppot has been realy great and knowing I have to weigh in once a week really has kept me on track.

Hi,sorry I'm so late posting this week,but I went out at 5.30pm yesterday to meet some friends for 2 glasses of wine and surprise surprise! got home at 12.30am in top form,however I have to say am not feeling in such great form now ,serves me right,Atkins hangovers are truly from hell.How I did not cheat when my friends stopped for chips I will never know.Anyway I woke up at 6a.m. feeling awfull and went into the bathroom stepped on the scales and I had lost 3.5lbsgreat, but by 8a.m. when I had to get up I was back to the 2lbs loss I had yesterday morning so long story short my weight loss for this week is 2lbs.Not bad but no way will I make the ST.Patrick's day deadline as I have only lost 8lbs since Feb 13. But hey Glenellen way to go !!!!5lbs I can only dream of such a woosh ,keep up whatever it is you are doing.

Hi all, lost another pound this week, Hm, wonder if I can lose 5 more by Wednesday to reach my goal for this challenge...somehow I don't think so! But at least I am going in the right direction. I must say it is very frustrating to lose so slowly, but I know from this forum that the last 20 lbs. are always hard, so I am really not too discouraged. I haven't weighed 175 since before my last baby was born 15 yrs. ago, therefore will have that to celebrate on St. Patrick's day! I will check back on Wed., maybe I'll have a major woosh, miracles do happen!

Liz

Hi Lizwhip ,congrats on your weight loss.I to feel I will not make the challange on the 17,and I am feeling a bit down as the last challange I took part in I reached my target one week in advance.I was feeling so dejected yesterday that I reread my Adkins book and this morning restarted induction to see if it will kick-start my stall,and allready I'm missing my 2squares of l.c. chocolate,just goes to show how dependent I have become on my little fix!!..I hope to only have to do 1 week on induction and hopefully lose 4lbs.Dumbletore ,I agree we should do another challange,perhaps one that would take us up to MayDay?, let me know what everyone else thinks.I also agree with you about the lack of posts on this site,I thought a lot of Irish people had started Adkins and I hoped this would become a lively site ,but not so far .I now spend most of my time just browsing around the other sites for support and information.

Hi everyone and welcome Dumbletore, and a happy paddy's day to all, carmal may-day sounds good to me, well done everyone with your weight loss, there's no point being disappointed with one's self, we all lost weight and enjoyed it at the same time, scarlet you sound so in controll (good on you girl) and liz I hope that miracle happened for you, because a miracle happened me, that im still the same weight after the booze up I had all week, on our next challange lets all check in a couple of times a week, because like carmel im wandering around the other forums and its a shame no-one else is interested in this one, but maybe we will get more support next time

Beannacht Feile Padraig Diobh!!!.My final weigh in for this challange-I lost 10lbs, 4lbs short of my target.Oh well could be worse I suppose I could have gained that amount of weight ,which would have been a distinct possibility had I not started this wol.I am all up for another challange May Day with the weigh in on Friday as before.Do we need to post a new thread to start this off?.I started back on induction on Monday did not have one drink to wet ST.Pat's head!!so I am realy hopeing to speed up my weight loss,am only going to do it untill Friday ,then it's back to my few glasse's of white wine!.Glenellen I would love to chat a few times per week as I spend time each evening on the other forums because as you say this forum is so quite.Good luck to everone else on reaching their challanges.

Hi all and happy St. Paddy's Day.
I managed to reach my mini goal just this morning. I am very happy about it. I think checking in here has really kept me on track. I totally appreciate all your support. I hope you will allow me to stick around here for your next challenge because you all definately played a part in my losing at all.
I am not totally in control. As it is my birthday I am having a planned cheat today. Chinese food and cheesecake. I hope it will not hurt too much.
Congratulations on all of your loses. Every little bit counts.

Alas, no miracle this morning, but it's ok, I am pleased with my 5 lb. loss, even though it is only half of what I was shooting for. 10 lbs. was a little ambitious when I am not willing to give up my wine or lc beer! I don't exercise either, and now I think I might be ready to start, which is saying a lot for me. Hearing about how some of you are exercising away makes me think I can do it too (Carmel!). Hmm, does thinking about exercise help with weight loss? Hey, I just bent down and picked up a pencil, does that count?

I would be up for another challenge, any date that ya'll want to pick is fine with me. This is a nice group, and you are all trying so hard and succeeding that you really do keep me motivated! Happy St. Patrick's day!

Liz
