Barb, don't do this to yourself, it will come off, don't get down, get MAD !!!! YOU CAN DO THIS !!!!

Fullfig - HORRAY !!!!!

Supersized, you too, hang in there, and please remember this isn't a race, its to do the best we can and not compair ourselves to others. Basically if I don't pretty much starve myself I don't lose either and well exercise is just another foreign word to me (I know I know) Your doing wonderful and making great choices, walking is great !

Froufy American Thanksgiving is November 27th.

Oh my gosh... I got on the scale this morning and then got on 3 more times just to make sure.

It said 272.5 which is a huge two day loss for me.

My total is now (corrected to minus the 8 pounds that shouldn't be there...): 4.5 but 12.5 total in 2.5 weeks! I'm so excited!!

Good Luck tomorrow with the surgery.

Thanks for the encouragement Leens. I managed to get in 45 minutes of walking at lunch but didn't get home until 9:00 tonight so I could do my evening walking. Hopefully there will be a payoff.

Hang in there Barbmarie. I pick up a couple of pounds during the week sometimes but I don't report them if I can shake them befoer weigh-in.

Way to go Lisa! Big WOOHOO for you!

I just read a thread on the Frequently asked Questions board, and it talks about a stall after the first 2 weeks, lasting into the 5th and 6th week. Sure sounds like me! Lots of great info there.

Some folks are using yogurt to break their stall, I'm not sure of the details but it sounds pretty interesting.

Who'd a thunk ?

Barbmarie - I too stalled in the 2nd and 3rd week. That's when I began taking the supplements he recommends (Aceytl-L-Carnitine (500 mg 3X day), Coenzyme Q10 (100 mg 3X day), Chromium Picolinate (100 mcg 2X day) and Probiotics Acidolphilus (1200 mg 2X day). Since that time I have averaged 2lbs a week. Sometimes 1 lb, other times 3 - but on avg. 2# a week.

My sister is also on Atkins and she is in her 3rd week - also stalling! I think it is very normal so try not to get discouraged.

I think the reason we stall is to give the body time to catch up to the quick weight loss.

My friend who has lost 55 lbs is stalled for 4 weeks now, but she dropped that weight like water and fast... I told her the same thing, the body know's what its doing even if we don't.

You might want to look at your calories as well

Hey. I'm really late to this, but I'd love to join in on the challenge. I'm pretty new to the Atkins Board, and I just started Atkins this week (Oct. 6). So, 15 pounds by Thanksgiving it is!!

Welcome Jina, glad to have you with us.

Kim, I'll look for the supplements. Do you have to go to a GNC type store? Or does Walmart have them? Thanks.

I've been taking the Atkins vitamins but not regularly. They have a ton of stuff in them but are kinda pricey. I'm gonna go for something a little cheaper when I run out. If you are interested in Atkins supplements, they are cheaper at Wal-mart than online.
