I have been on the Atkins induction one week, and so far have lost 4 pounds. I am back to my pre-vacation weight of 176. My goal is to lose a total of 44 pounds by November 1st. On top of using Atkins, I have begun exercising one hour a day. Even though I've lost the 4 pounds, I am scared that I won't continue to lose weight. I guess the old familiar 176 is making me think this might be the end of the dieting road for me. I have a week to prove myself wrong.
