Hi Suzanne! :)

Losing family is painful.
But losing three members in such a short time is nothing short of terrible!
I've lost a number of family members and fully understand.
My heart and prayers are with you, Suzanne.

Most all of us here are carb addicts.
That's why this forum sometimes feels like AA.

Support is ESSENTIAL for most folks who are turning around a lifetime of bad ways.
We know the power of mutual love and support. And we share it here daily.
This forum is one of the reasons FTS will help you forever change your life!
We'll always be here to help and support you.

Nobody likes "creeps"! >:(
So let's band together to keep them away! :)

Tony

Hi mdanziger!  Not sure if I've had the chance to say hello to you before!  Yep....we are all REAL people! :D   I live in Gainesville, GA.  I haven't been on the forum too much over the Summer.  I am back to get inspired to get the rest of my weight off.  I love eating low carb!  I just wish I had known to eat this way 20 years ago!  Losing over 100 pounds has changed my life!!  I plan to be a low carber for life!!  Nice to "meet" you!!   :)

Maddysmom, I love that quote in your signature.  I can't count how many times I have said to myself "I wish I started this earlier."  Well, I have started now...

You know guys why don't we all lose 35 by Christmas together? We could start a group here and just do it. It could be our Christmas present to ourselves. Anyone with me?

Yikes! Is that do-able? Three and a half pounds a week? I'm still a noob on day seven, but I've only lost just shy of three pounds this week.

If you follow the program religiously you can easily lose 5 pounds a week. If you're a man you could lose a pound a day.

35 will be easy!

Knowing I'm the King of the Turtle Club, I'd ask myself "Which Christmas???".  :D ;D :D ;D :D ;D

You guys are going to do GREAT!!! :) :) :)

Even if you don't reach 35, you'll be healthier and smaller too!
That alone is a wonderful Christmas gift! 8)

I'll be a virtual cheerleader.  I always wanted to be a cheerleader.  You go! girls and guys!

First and 10, do it again!

Tony you crack me up!!!  :D :D

I am definitely cutting back to start my losing again, but I'm "skeered" to put a time frame on 35 pounds for me.  I have applied for membership to the turtle club myself.   :D :D

I'm not sure I can do 3.5 lbs a week either. While I stick fairly close to FTS, I'm eating more green things and that bumps my carb count up a bit over 20.
