Hi, I'm Natalie and I started on Atkins 8 days ago. I've lost about 7 pounds thus far and I'd like to know if that is typical progress?
I have short term and long term goals for my diet. My short-term goal is to drop 2 dress sizes by May 8 (which is only 2 weeks away!). I'm not sure if that is very realistic or not, but it gives me motovation. Any suggestions for speeding up weight loss? I would simply like to lose as much as possible int these two weeks! I also have a long-term goal for my wedding, but that's over a year away... I have plenty of time for that!
Anyway, I've had little trouble adjusting to the diet, only recently I've been getting major cravings for sweets. I don't completely trust artificial sweeteners, so I've eaten half an apple each day for a couple of days. I was surprised to find out just how many carbs an apple contains. I feel like I might as well have eaten a cup of ice cream! This is probably not going to help my 2-week weight loss plan, huh?
I appreciate any input! Thanks!
