In the Beginning . . . Tracy 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!!! 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!!!
