Default For Lent

Giving up starches and sugars for lent and giving up alcohol til I lose 20 to kick start my goal of losing 50 before I turn 50 in 7 months. I've been able to get in at least 5 days a week of 30 mins or more of treadmill/ellptacle/bike since Jan. 1. Clothes fit better but no big weight loss. Also doing pushups - started with 10 a session, now 20, adding 10 a month til I get to 100.

Anybody else giving up anything for lent - or starting up something?

Fat and sugar. Gotta lose around 20 also. I hope to lose it before April 1st.
Started last week. Lost 3 lbs. I am on track to succeed, unless I fall off the fat wagon.
I can do without sugar.

Atkins does work. I've done it several times and lost 45 at one time. Gained it back. The key is keeping it off. I seemed to gain it back too fast. Gotta cut back the fat, too and get into the cardio habit.

I did Atkins a couple years ago. It worked great, but when I took a dump, it felt like I was crapping a freakin cinder block. That diet hurts my azz.

A few years back I lost almost 60lb on Atkins. Most of it's come back now, it's time to diet again.

I used peppermints from Sam's. Lots of peppermints. Chantix is a great drug, just make sure some one wathces for the side effects.

The Nicorrette, (sp) seemed to help alot also. Know some that used the patch and worked. The main thing is you have to want to quit.

Again, good luck
