I really don't know what i did different.. Than Im drinking a protein shake for breakfast and I cut out peanut butter, I was eating about a tsp every other night. .. but this past week I lost .5 pounds almost every day!!!
I started off January 1st. nothing happened.. well lost 3 lbs. My period started gained 2 back... then finally those 3 came off and I sat there finally by last couple days of January I was getting depressed...
I was folliwng the diet.. 20 carbs or less. and watching my calories. and I was losing nothing!
I made a couple changes and Bang. Im down 9 pounds!! so 6 pounds this past week.. Can't be water weight.. I been on a diet, this same diet for a month..
This monday night I am going to a work dinner. and they are only serving certain things. So I am going to do my best.. But im not going to stress out over it. If I eat something with carbs. I will move on.. But honestly going to try to get chicken and salad... and hope to take left overs home for the hubby!..
Just wanted to post about my hurdle!!!:carrot: IM just so happy the scale is finally moving down!!!:D

Good to hear!

Peanut butter is not on the Atkins induction list, I don't think you'd told us about that one (wink) - it's a staller for a lot of people. Many people say peanut butter is one of the last foods to try adding back, not counting in the nut level, but instead in the legume one (peanuts aren't true nuts)
