Hi StephanieM! I am so glad you posted a response today...it has been a while since I have been to the site and have fallen way off track and probably would still be avoiding it if I hadn't gotten an email from 3FC about a response to this thread. I think I have let myself off the hook long enough.
I love Atkins, I was also using the bars...quite often actually and think that's why I hit a plateau as well. They made it so easy to make me think I was on the right track but at the same time halted my weight loss almost completely after the initial water weight was gone. I am so ready to get back on track too and think this time I will do it without them. I am afraid of OWL since it also slowed my weight loss down but will probably put it off for a while...maybe until I am about 20-30% to my goal.
Good luck to you!!
