View Full Version : The Big Reveal - Really!!!

In the Beginning . . .

http://www.wdwinfo.com/sites/family/whair.gif http://www.wdwinfo.com/sites/family/hairwind.gifTracy and Karyn - two determined women with messed up metabolisms started Atkins. For four weeks they toiled, they struggled, they were very very good eating just what the good Dr. told them to, but to no avail . . . When it got to five weeks, they "looked" at each other and said: "Something Must Be Done!"

So on Monday morning, June 16, 2003, they began the dreaded, the evil, the horrible: ATKIN'S FAT FAST

Day One: We're ok, We're cool, Look at us go . . .

Day Two: We're starving, this isn't enough food for my parakeet!

Day Three: More than half-way, we will survive this . . .

Day Four: Why give up now?

Friday morning: The BIG REVEAL . . .

Karyn: Started on Monday at 163 lbs (to be completely honest the Wednesday before I had seen 161 for about an hour when it disappeared again. I'm going to use the Monday morning WI but if you have to, you can subtract 2lbs!)

Tracy: Started Monday at 158 lbs. She was really intelligent and remembered to measure as well! (Thanks to Kath!)

:( The BAAAAD News is: We didn't get to SKIP our 10# clippies!!!

:teeth: The Good News is: WE GOT OUR 10# CLIPPIES!!!!

And now, for the news you've been waiting for:

Now remember, this is after just FOUR days!

Karyn: 156.5
That's 6.5 lbs!!!!

Tracy: 154
That's 4 lbs and 6"!!!!

We could not have done it without all the love, support, encouragement, tears, cheers, prayers and pixie dust!

Thank you, thank you, thank you, everybody!!!!

Karyn and Tracy
Slow, but Determined: Losers, but WINNERS!!!

Oh my, oh my, oh my - you guys are amazing. I cannot beleive it. You lost more than a pound a day each! :bounce: :Pinkbounc :bounce: :Pinkbounc :bounce: :Pinkbounc THAT IS EACH! OVER A POUND A DAY!


Do your clothes feel looser? Do you have a lot of energy? Was it something that you would recommend to others? Again, because you each deserve your own:

I'm so proud of you both, Tracy and Karyn. I don't know that I would have the courage to do that fat fast. If I ever try it, I will have to ban myself from the DIS. I can't imagine how grouchy I would be and if the fat fast makes our sweet Tracy grumpy, I would be like the Queen of Hearts, I'm sure.

Way to go, you two! Good for you measuring yourself Tracy. It is just incredible that you lost 6 inches in 4 days. Perhaps I <i>should</i> try this.

Be proud of yourselves. You did a great job with this. You jumpstarted your weight loss and you did just what Atkins said you would do, you lost at least one pound a day. That guy was really sharp. Too bad the medical establishment waited until he died to admit he knew what he was talking about.

Take a bow and be <b>proud</b>! Be very proud. You both took your frustration and turned it into a positive result. Nothing can stop you, seriously. If you can make it through the first two days of the fat fast you can do just about anything. We are all certainly proud <i>of</i> you...very, very proud.

Now, Tracy are you going to do the second part of this fat fast or are you going to quit? How about you Karyn? You sounded pretty determined to contine with the second phase, what will you do?

06-20-2003, 10:27 AM

Not only did you get new clippies, but you sure did bust away some pounds over the last few days!!! WOW!!! YOU SHOULD BE SO PROUD OF YOURSELVES!!!! YOU DID IT!!!!

That is really awesome! Look at your numbers getting lower and lower! I hope this is just the start of some Tiggerific weight losses for you both over the next several weeks! Thanks so much for sharing this with us, it has been an interesting experience! :) GOOD FOR YOU BOTH!!!!!

I am so happy for you! What an amazing accomplishment in such a short time! :) YOU DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Way to go!

I am in awe of the determination you have both shown.

Please keep us updated as you head into Phase 2. How long does Phase 2 last?

I am sure the next clippie will soon be here!

06-20-2003, 12:54 PM
I am so very happy for both of you! You have commited and worked so hard at this ---- I know you will both be succesful in the long term with getting healthier! The past 4 days have just proved your dedication without a doubt.

06-20-2003, 10:59 PM
I would like to thank all of you sooo much for your love and support. Especially Karyn..she has kept me going...right into phase 2.

I know I have said this before...but the support that you all have given me...is something I have NEVER receieved before...Not from anyone. I get really choked up when I think about all of you and how much everyone really cares. You are an amazing group of women...(and a few great men, I would never leave out our resident hotties...LOL)

Thanks, Love and Pixie Dust....
