View Full Version : Slow Losers - LAST Day!!
06-19-2003, 08:40 AM
And now, for the continuing saga . . .
Can you believe it? We've made it to Day 4! Wow!!! Ain't nobody gonna stop us now!
So, here we are. I must admit the lack of variation on the menu is starting to get to me, but hey for one more day I can do anything!
We couldn't have done it if all of you hadn't been there for us. The poems, the laughter the prayers and the pixie dust have been an immeasurable help. Oh, and we couldn't have done it without each other! Tracy, I love you!
Oh, I wanted to mention that Tracy fell again skating yesterday - this time she didn't just hurt her pride, she got pretty scraped up and was feeling pretty stiff and miserable yesterday. She reports that pain is a good way to keep your mind off food, however!
We both found that Day 3 was much easier than Day 2 - the horrific hungries never showed up again, and like the first day, I actually had trouble getting all of my 5 tiny meals in before bedtime.
This is Day 4!!! We're almost there, yeah! BUT . . . tomorrow starts the next phase which isn't much better - we get . . . wait for it . . . 200 MORE calories each day for . . . count them . . . SEVEN MORE DAYS!!!!! I think this is a good news/bad news kinda thing. AAARRRGGGGHHHHH!!!!!! What did we say about being determined?????
Tune in tomorrow for The Big Reveal!
We're Slow, We're Determined and We Are Losers!

Hey Karyn...and everyone else!!! We made it DAY 4!!! Yeah I have to admit this is a pretty BORING way to eat...but The results have been worth it!!! (aren't you all dying to find out!!!)!!
Karyn...thanks for listening to all my whining yesterday, I did really get hurt... and not in a place where pads would have helped!! Sleeping was not fun last night...BUT it did take my mind off of eating!!
Karyn...I could not have said it better....I know I never would have been able to fininsh this fast without you! The support you have given me has been nothing short of amazing!!! You are a special person and I hope that we get to meet in person someday very soon!!
Everyone else...you will never know how much your words and encouragement mean!! You are all so inspiring and motivational.
Okay...enough with the gushy stuff....I have alot of errands today..so hopefully it won't be difficult to eat on the run!!

you gals are such a great example to me! we CAN do whatever we put our minds to! I'm sooo impressed that you are on your last day!! wooo hoooo!!!!! nothing stopping you now!
Tracy - i'm sorry to hear about your boo-boos. virtual "Mommy kisses" to your owies to feel better :)
You both have been in my thoughts and prayers these past three days and will continue through the next phase. Is that straight into induction for you? i guess I could read about it, I'm not very Atkins-smart :) I know that your willpower and confidence is soaring after your accomplishment and it's all coasting from here!
Great Job!! :bounce: :bounce: :Pinkbounc :Pinkbounc :bounce: :bounce:

You two deserve a special award for determination. I'm really proud of you both. I don't know if I would have the strength to stay with this for 4 days.
Way to go, my friends. I can't wait to see what your final results are.
Hang in there--just one more day and then you get to add 200 calories. You can do it!

Tracy & Karyn, You are awesome. I'm so glad you got through it!!! (so far)
Tracy--I'm sorry you fell again. I hope you're okay!!!
I wish I could have been more supportive :( I couldn't log on to the boards!!!! I was going crazy thinking about you!!!
I can't wait to find out the results!!!

Keep at it girls! You're doing great! Anxiously awaiting tomorrows results!
WOO-HOO!! Last day, last day, last day!!!
I am so proud of you guys!!! You are doing such a great job sticking to the fat fast, I am really anxious to hear your results. It's like Christmas Eve, just trying to wait for tomorrow to see what Santa left!!! Woo-hoo!!!!!
You know, I am an idiot, because I read one of the previous posts really quick and thought you were only eating 100 calories a day, not 1000!!! DUH! :) I thought, "Geez, that's pretty severe, but I guess it would work for 4 days..." ha ha ha ha ha! But I am still way impressed, I bet you feel like you have only had 400 calories over the last 4 days!
One more sleep and your there!!!

OUCH!! Tracy you didn't mention that you fell when we were chatting today! Were you rollerblading? I stink at rollerblading. Once when my dh and I were in LA, we went to the beach and pier and decided to do some rollerblading. There was a booth where you rent blades/pads or bikes/helmets. I fell so many times and was bleeding so badly down my legs, the guy at the booth came out to BEG me to please give him back the rollerblades and that I could take a bike for free. I took the bike. ;) hee hee
Tracy and Karyn, you are both doing GREAT!!! I am anxiously awaiting the kept-under-lock-and-key results!! You know you can make it through today! You are practically there!!! YEAH!!!
