Hello warriors,
How are you doing today?

De.... have a great trip with your grandson. Enjoy seeing your granddaughters! I agree this wol works so well for me and I feel great. No carb worth eating to ruin the magic!
Jo.... sound greats that the weather is going to return to normal! Enjoy being out and about! Jo my Wally has a new service you go online order your groceries and then drive up and get them. I still go in but heck when my leg was broken that would have worked. I eat simple chik, tuna, eggs, salad and olive oil. Easy order!

Have a fantastic Friday warriors and take care of yourself!

All packed and ready to go...yay! Thanks Jo & Bernie. I wonder how well he will do for a week away from parents, hopefully good! I'll let ya know he's super excited to go. He did good on the plane when they went to Hawaii and this is a lot shorter so the flight should be fine.

Had more tuna and salad this morning, sounds like a strange breakfast, but not for me!

I've been making iced coffee instead of hot. Don't need any hot drinks with this hot weather. Of course my house is cool, so not sure if it really matters!!!

Enjoy Friday & the weekend all ( or both?)

Happy Saturday, Warriors!

Hope all is well and wishing each of you a totally kick Azz, BAD Azz 100% OP day as usual!
Stay WARRIOR Strong!

Wow Berni, looks like it's only you and me since Karen and De are off vacationing! We'll hold down the fort!!

Karen said they'd be gone for 10 days, so I expect we'll hear from her Thursday or Friday... I know she's having a great time at da beach!

Yeppers, I will definitely take advantage of it! But then, it's still gonna be in the mid to high 90s, so it's not that "great" if you know what I mean!

Wow, you're right, that would have been fab-tastic when I broke my leg too! Yeah, like you, I go into the store and shop. I like to see if they have any "specials" on things I normally buy, KWIM???

Wonder if they'll get around to doing that here too... I'll let you know!

Hey, your grocery list is EXACTLY like mine, except I like to buy salad shrimp occasionally and let's not forget my garlic!

I wouldn't think the plane ride would be an issue, but away from his 'rents for a week... Hey Imma sure he'll do great, he can always Skype, right?

I know what you mean about a cool house, and not sure if it really matters, but I do the same here! I just iced coffee during the late spring and summer!

Happy Saturday! I am hoping I can join your group. I have a lot of success on Atkins induction in the past. Ive Lost, Gained, lost, gained... some of you probably know how that goes... About a year ago I lost 60lbs and then maintained with moderate carbs but now I am ready to get the rest of this weight off and start living my life. Atkins '72 induction level is the ONLY way I lose and the only way I feel good. I could really use the motivation and encouragement here if that is OK with you guys!

That is pretty much what I do too! Limited leafy greens and animal kingdom! Looks like I found the right group!

I remember Jo from the old days! I have been on here on and off for over 10 years and I believe was a part of this group (or a similar one) many years ago.

Hello and !

We'd love to have you join our merrily little band of Warriors!

I know the "lose, gain, rinse, repeat, recycle" story personally.

Like I told someone in my journal yesterday: Success at this WOE took me many many years (35) of fallin' off the wagon and thinkin' I could do it "my way" aka eating 100% OP 5 days a week then face planting into those toxic carbs on the weekends... kept losing and gaining the same lbs over and over again.

I guess it would have been a great maintenance plan if I hadn't weighed 265 lbs or more...

But that's my past, this is my present and future!

Huge CONGRATS on keeping 60 lbs off! That's terrific!

That's how we all are here as well! None of us have climbed the carb ladder b/c we are that carb intolerant; even those of us in Maintenance. We're still at Induction level carbs = biological zero and eating real foods (no shakes, protein bars, LC foods, etc).

We truly believe that the only way to be successful at not only losing the weight but keeping it off, is to never CHEAT, no excuses, hence the reason we call our thread HARD CORE!

That's what we're here for to help support and encourage each other along our journeys to better HEALTH and skinny-dom!

That's awesome! B/c that's the only way we've all been successful here!

Hey that's cool that we've met before!

I've been on this incredible forum since Feb 2014 and we started our 1st HC A '72 thread around June or July of 2014.

I remember there was an Atkins 1972 thread around the time I joined that was very active.

If you have any questions, etc, ask and we'll answer to the best of our ability or point you in the right direction.

Keep Fighting the Good HARD Fight b/c you are so WORTH IT!

Wow awfully quiet in here... so I'll get the ball rollin'!
Happy Monday, Warriors!

Wishing each of you a totally kick Azz, BAD Azz 100% OP day as usual!
Stay WARRIOR Strong!

Today is 3 years, 4 months and counting on my maintenance journey!

I can't imagine going back to eating those horribly addictive, insidiously toxic, poisonous killer carb-age foods.

Yeah, "Fat Jo" tries to get into my head every once in a while! But I kick her FAT ass back into that maintenance cage. SHE ain't gonna talk me into face planting into those toxic carbs ever again, since it's totally my choice to eat what I eat and carb-age crap isn't on Jo's Menu ever!

Hey I finished another Mile a Minute Afghan yesterday! Here's the pic:

Mrs K... sounds like you are following our warriors plan. Stop by and let us know how you are doing!
Have a marvelous Monday and take care of yourself!

Thanks JustJo for posting the link to this group/thread.

I found the 1972 version book online and it is currently being shipped.
I have been reading all the threads you have shared containing the 1972 induction.

A big thank you! I am starting 1972 induction tomorrow!
This will get me on the right path!!! I just know it!
