Default Do you find your weight loss isn't as much when you stop Atkins then re-start?

Hi everyone - i'm new to the boards - been a lurker for quite a while but finally joined and this is my official FIRST POST! Yay!

This is my 3rd time on Atkins. My first time I did really well, lost about 40lbs in 3months, then i got pregnant with my daughter. I was 25 then, and somehow it seemed easier.

I recently did Atkins for about 2months in March and lost about 16lbs

and now i'm on my "third times a charm" and i'm on week 3 and i've only lost 4lbs. it's a little discouraging and i know i might be a little ahead of myself not being happy for losing 4lbs but i've always enjoyed atkins because of the quality of food you can eat vs.a low fat diet and that you see results quicker.

I am 213lbs (was 216.8) and i have about 40lbs to lose. i just don't want to get discouraged.....

today i had:

2 eggs w a slice of American Cheese and bacon
Rolled up turkey and cheese slices (2) with a cesar salad
grilled chicken with brocolli and butter
sugar free jello w/whipped cream

also, can we have ground flaxseed on induction? Ive used it before to make a really good "fake bread" and i know it has 4 grams of carbs but 4 grams of fiber so it would seem it would cancel out but i guess - if it's not on the induction food list the answer is going to be....no?
