I would say the lack of veggies could cause a pretty big problem all around...not a lot of fiber in meat, eggs, and cheese

You get those veggies in! Hope it continues to work out for you!

Hi all!

Just a quick note - yesterday was the last day of our first two week induction. I've lost 9, hubby has 13. After finding my Splenda goof up, the scale has started to move again. My next big issue is fiber.

Hope you are all up and running and started on a great Monday and a wonderful week!

Thanks - as of this morning, it's an even 10! Yay! I'm so encouraged - I really want to keep going and going.

My induction was over yesterday as well...my scale stood still at 7 lbs after 4 days for me and my husband has lost 15lbs. Both are still going strong with this. I need to exercise and hope to see the inches melt away!! I have been not so motivated considering I haven't seen any loss in over a week, but I am going to start moving and see if that will help me shed my pounds!!

Congratulations on your results!

I planned to start exercising this week but just haven't - no excuse. I have REALLY got to get going!

Hey girls!

I haven't been online in awhile because I've been studying for a final exam!

Just wondering if what everyone decided to do about induction.. continue or move on the Phase 2?

I've decided to stay on for a little longer. I'm not really tired of the food yet and the scale has just started to move for me again after a long plateau that began after a few days of induction.

Does anyone know how much weight loss slows down after you move on to phase two? I guess I'm losing around 2 pounds a week right now.. if it slowed down too much I'd start gaining!

Gee, Lamby, two pounds a week is good and really is the max you should lose during OWL (Ongoing Weight Loss). You may want to do another week of Induction as long as you are feeling OK and eating enough.
I hope your exam went well.

Well some of you know me, but I'm going to post for the first time on this post. I just (last week) got the Atkins book and today is my first day. I did screw up already, but I'm going to deal with it. Last night I went to hershey park and got a 5lb box of twizlers for my daughters. When I woke up this morning, i just out of habit, grabbed two of them and ate them. So that was 18 carbs to start the day off. But even though I will be over my carb limit for the day, I'm still going to finish the day as if I was op all day. Then I'll start totaly fresh tomorrow.

Well I'll keep posting how I am doing. Hope you all don't mind me butting in.

Nicole WTG !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! excellent girlie excellent.

Bella, I know the feeling, I was making hubby a pnutbutter sand and I got some on my fingers and licked it off...ooops to late.

Atkins is a learning experience thats for sure !!!
I'm on 1 1/2 weeks and still finding lots of errors that I am doing, but its not going to stop me yet.

Good Luck !!!

Pssssssssst.......if your butting in so am I.

No one is butting in!

Good to know that two pounds is about what I should be losing. I guess I'll stay on induction for awhile longer then.

This past week I have increased my workouts from about 20 minutes a day to an hour (45 aerobic, 15 strength training) and for the past two days I have been up 2 pounds. I know that my weight will fluctuate but it's annoying since I have been exercising so much! I'm trying not to worry about it until Sunday.. that is when I normally record my weight.

I know how you both feel about accidentally cheating.. I ate something without reading the ingredients during my first week and gained back 4 pounds. Like you said Leens, I guess it's a learning experience.

I feel like I learn so much from reading the posts in this forum.

Lamby- 2 pounds a week sounds good to me!! Keep up the good work!!

I am continuing my induction phase too...I lost 7 lbs quit and haven't lost since so I figured it wouldn't hurt to keep going. I do think I was eating too much cheese the second week as something easy to grab so I have decided to watch that and contiue on the diet...also I am going to run!!!

Hope I lose more...though I did lose 3 inches from my waist without losing pounds so I am not too upset!!! Now to tone!!!!!

Yes I feel a lot better now. At the beginning I wasn't getting enough vitamins so I was light headed and my muscles were weak. I started taking Potassium and Magnessium and now I am wonderful!! I haven't felt this good in a long time!!! So, I will begin my running, even if I have to start with walking for the first little while just to get back in the groove!!

That's great! My husband was having similar problems in the beginning too. They seem to have worked themselves out though.

You're so lucky to live up north where you can actually get out and run! I am stuck inside (the heat here is awful!) with my stair stepper!
