View Full Version : Today is my Anniversary! An important milestone.....

Today is my ONE YEAR Atkinsversary! I've never stuck to a healthy eating plan for this long. It is a true milestone for me!:D

I am down 36 pounds as of today. It gets frustrating -- especially when I'm trying to do SO GOOD and the scale is not cooperating.

The first 6 months I did very well. I started at 247 and dropped to 215. I actually lost 32 pounds by the middle of December. Then I strayed in January and February and actually gained some weight. I started the WISH challenge the end of January at 222. In March I became totally committed again but it went so slow! [I guess that is what I get for straying]. I earned my 10 pound clippie about 5 weeks ago [212] and as of today I am down another pound [211].......

And have LOTS MORE to go! My goal is under 140. That is probably even a little high for my height of 5'2'' -- I'll have to wait to see.

A great BIG ThankYOU to all of my WISH Friends for your support during this past year. I truly cherish it.

Honey, you are such an important part of WISH, I hope you realize that. You always have the perfect link to offer information, you wrote that great thread about adding the member clipart to our signatures and you are always supportive and caring. I don't know what I would do without you in my support group.

Happy anniversary. Keep on keeping on...one day at a time...one pound at a time. You are making progress toward goal and you help keep us all motivated while you travel that road.

{{{HUGS}}} my sweet WISH friend. Thank you for being <i>you</i>!

Congratulations, Jody! I have to tell you that you're thought of often around my house. Everytime I make your broccoli salad, someone wants to know where I got the recipe and I tell them. It's wovenwonder's! Thanks for all you do for all of us and kudos on your one-year anniversary.


P.S. I just noticed you're from Penna. Dutch country. Would that be Lancaster County, by any chance? That's where I'm from. I've lived in Ohio for over 20 years, now, but my family all lives in Pa.

I missed you Atkinsversary! (I was too hungry to write anything) But here's huge belated Congratulations!

You've really stuck it out and just think when you've hung in there like this it really is a way of life now and you have very little chance of ever going back to the way you were before. You know the longer it takes and the harder it is, the less likely it is that you will ever have to do it again! You know that.

I am so proud of you. AND I love your salad!

Cheers to you and your perseverance!

God bless you, best wishes, and encouragement, RaySharpton:)

How wonderful that you have been on Atkins for a year! That really says something about your committment to a healthier lifestyle, no matter how quickly (or slowly) those pounds come off. You're such an inspiration to me (and at a time when I really need it, too!) :D
