Looking forward to day 10 Sarah! I bet you have a whoosh... I too am a whoosher... 1 week a month.. and its hard to be patient for sometimes!... But it happens and we know it!

Hope everyone has a great no today on the scale and just have a wonderful day overall!

SW 249.2 (up 3 from my lowest boo)
12/1 253.2 OUCH!
12/2 252.00
12/3 249.6 (+.4) I am close to the start and WILL go forward!
12/4 247.6 (-1.6) oh its nice to be in the black! now 1.2 to my lowest...march on!!!
12/5 247.2 (-2.0 total).. ok I have a feeling that going back on induction coincided with my monthly whoosh week... but I'll take it! Now to get down some more!!!

GW 244.2

Sarah this is why I love daily weighing, because patterns become apparent which limits frustration doesn't eliminate it of course, but tempers it

sue could be water weight and your monthly whoosh, maybe you will see even MORE weight off this month

SMS - unfortunately it's possible that for thanksgiving you had both bloating and also excess calories that became real weight. What have you been doing this past week? I'd suggest a really strict induction period and if that's not enough (or if you're already doing that) then maybe. Fat fast (although the Atkins book wouldn't say you qualify for fat fats, I find it a nice tool to get back to serious ketosis when the scale is stuck). Also, carefully tracking counting weighing measuring. I don't know if you currently keep an eye on calories as well as carbs but if not you might need to get tighter on that (I need to keep both calories and carbs in check).

PixiKat... OOOHHH are you close to winning?! you are doing so darn well!
Sarah... a scooch down is DOWNdowndown as Lulu says and that is MUCH better than up! You are lighter today than yesterday! Hooray!

SMS.. I think what Sarah says is right... watch what you are eating - to make sure no bigtime carbs count is finding its way into your system (100+) and if that is not the problem... sometimes our bodies just say HAH! I am readjusting here as you lost part of me.. so WAIT... LOL Maybe some Lemon Water might do it.... or Not an Atkins thing here... Try the IAN dinner diet (If you are ok with this) 1 or 2 beers (with hops) or glasses of wine and NO FOOD for dinner... that will woosh extra water!... But again.. only do this if you feel comfortable and this does not hurt you... It works for me the 1 or 2 times a month when my feet are swollen

don't worry, it will whoosh away when it's ready, be patient my friend !

aaaaahhhh it's so close, this competition! gaaaayieeee-gads you are all out-whooshing me , but i'm pretty tough so look out!!! hehe. i'll get you!

tomorrow this time i'm weighing-in! who knows what it will be? a whoosh, or a hold or a tiny loss, surely not a gain - no way, i've been solid on my plan - optifast - oh gosh and i'm sick of it too. only because it's been 12 weeks now. but it's been so brilliant i'm not stopping for ANYTHING.

the answer to all my prayers, yes sirrree!
