Default 1st week of Atkins is over

Week 1 of being on the Atkins diet is done, and at today's weigh in I am down 11.5 lbs.

If I can continue this pace, come Oct. for the CM "Little Money group cruise" I should be pretty close to my birth weight of 7 lbs 8 oz. <G>

ROFLMAO:

I bet you were a handsome baby. I don't know what went wrong after that. <VBG>

Seriously: Congratulations, but don't get discouraged if it doesn't come off as fast in the next weeks. The first couple of weeks are the most drastic weight loss. Just keep it up. We need a healthy moose around here and to cruise with and most of all the family needs a healthy husband and Dad.

Hey I've lost 40 lbs since we last cruised. Maybe I will still be able to borrow a jacket from you.

Take care, (I mean it)
Mike

Good luck on the diet kuki! and congrats that it's coming off so quickly but as said above--the first couple of weeks of any diet it comes off the fastest, after that it's alot slower and more gradual--which is good--you don't want it coming off too fast!

Congratulations on the loss Kuki! As others have said, you've probably seen the biggest quickest drop but keep it up slow and steady.
I really enjoyed shopping in my own closet after I lost 30 lbs.

Kuki,

Congratulations. I, too, have been battling some health issues for the last couple of years, and I am also taking off some weight, slowly but steadily. It isn't easy, but I want to be around for a few more years. There are a lot of cruises yet to be taken! I'm in your corner cheering you on!

I found a picture of Kuki after six weeks on Atkins.



<VBG>

I wonder if his Tux will fit?

Take care,
Mike

Hi Kuki
Will you be my weight loss buddy?? I've gradually been going up (not on any diet) and I need a support person to keep me from the ice cream, mashed potatoes, desserts my husband buys and bakes, etc.
I've come up through the Diet Workshop system-parents were managers, but just need someone to say, "ah, oh, Lynne. No, No, NO"!!!

Congratulations on your weight loss success!! We're all rooting for you!! Lynne
