View Full Version : Weighed in this morning

06-14-2003, 09:06 AM
I've been on Atkins for 12 days, and today I weighed. I lost 8 pounds!!! At first I was a little disappointed because I've seen the huge week one losses of other people, but then I realized that this is a big accomplishment for me. It proves that Atkins works (I was skeptical) and proves that I can do it!

Awesome Jen! Congratulations!

Keep with it and you'll be at your goal weight in no time!!! :)

Oh it DOES work... and the health improvements occur too! :) I have lost 38 pounds to date on Atkins. Lowered my cholesterol by 61 points and I feel GOOD!

You are ON YOUR WAY SWEETIE!!! Congratulations and good job!

8 pounds!!! What a great accomplishment! I know what you mean about the first big drop; I'd love to see 20 lbs. drop off NOW, but it didn't come on that way and I guess it won't come off that way either.:( But if we're maintaining or going down, then we're moving closer to our goal.

8 pounds is something to crow about! :bounce: Keep at it, you're doing a great job!

8 pounds in one week is terrific! Keep up the good work!:D :D

8 Pounds is awesome!! Don't compare to what other people lose. Everyone loses at their own rate depending on lots of things including how much they have to lose. We didn't gain this wait in a week and we're sure not going to lose it in a week. Just think though, you are only 2 pounds from a 10 pound loss! Keep up the good work!!

THAT IS WONDERFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I wish that I had done this a long time ago also!!

You should be so proud of yourself. EIGHT pounds is great!!
Have you taken any measurements???

Congratulations!! 8 pounds is really is awesome.

I think losing 8lbs is great! I am at 5 weeks & 5lbs. As long as the scale is going the right direction, I'm happy.

06-14-2003, 06:21 PM
That is awesome, Jen, congratulations!!

I was down .4 today and was happy with that with the way things have been going! :)

That's great! As others have said, everyone loses at their own pace. Any lose is an accomplishment. Eight pounds is more than I lost in my first week.

You are on your weigh! Keep up the good work!

06-15-2003, 09:06 AM
Hey...8 pounds is 8 pounds gone forever! Go and lift a 5 pound bag of sugar and realize you have lost more than how heavy that feels!

06-15-2003, 09:56 AM

8 pounds in a week, woo-hoo!!!! I bet you feel great!!! Keep it up and you'll be changing into new clippies faster than the speed of light! :)

:bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

That sure is a great way to start off your healthy lifestyle! :)

I love you all...the support here is amazing!

OMG, the tag fairy doesn't hate me anymore ;-) Thanks!

I admit to having a complex due to my lack of tag, but now I'm REALLY feeling better about myself. :)

Love your tag :D

<b>addicted_to_WDW</b> Everyone loses at different rates. I lost 5 pounds my first week on Atkins and I thought that was pretty terrific. Then my friend Beanie took the challenge and lost 11 pounds her first week and 10 pounds her second week and I was thinking to myself, "NO FAIR". LOL, I'm selfish that way ;)

You lost more than one pound a day, cutie. That is wonderful progress and success. You should be feeling pretty proud of yourself. Celebrate your success and get ready for more, I lost 7 pounds my second week. Who knows how much more you will lose.

Way to go. You are on your way to goal and you are kicking up dust. What a motivation you have been for me today. I'm really proud of you :)
