Default Atkins: 4 lbs. in two days!!!

This is day three for me. I have learned over the years that I have no control when it comes to carbs which is why I have not lost weight in ten years! Since I have to eat I decided to eliminate all carbs and start Atkins! Day three I did not have the Ketosis breath yet so I stepped on the scale thinking it would be a gain because of all rich foods I have been eating and guess what...

4 lbs down! Unreal.. and I know its water weight, but we all know the scale makes us feel better and gives reassurance.

Good for you! You do let go of a lot of water you are retaining when you low carb. Its also a boost to your confidence when you step on the scale! Love it. It can take a few days to get into ketosis....in the meantime you can still lose weight. I wish you continued success!!

Wow, bet that really inspires you!
Starts and stops of being on plan since January 2011. Back on plan May 2011.
April 2012, no progess unless you count gaining and losing the same 20 or so pounds, trying again!

Courage doesn't always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying,
"I will try again tomorrow."
