Default 14 day induction over 11 pounds lost

Well my 14 day induction ended on Sunday and I feel and look better than I have in a long time. I am now in my size 14's and I actually went swimsuit shopping on Friday . I will be vacationing in 3 weeks and I need a new suit. This is the first time in a long time that I will not be too embarrassed to wear a swimsuit. I will actually wait until a few days before because who knows how much weight I will lose in 3 weeks. I was wondering, how much average weight did you guys lose after the 2 week induction? I lost 6 lbs the first week and 5 lbs the second, I just can't imagine that it would stay like this. Should I prepare for any stalls yet? How long have some of you stayed on induction?

Again, this woe is agreeing with me. I even got some recipes off this site and made a few quiches this weekend. Hopefully I'll be to goal by my anniversary in Sept.

Thumbs up Congrats!!!

Keep up the good work!!! You're doing great!!!

I've basically stayed at Induction level carbs (20-25) since beginning Atkins. I've never gotten bored with the foods & have found some terrific recipes!

All the best to you!!

WTG on the weight loss. Not everyone stalls after the first 2 weeks. You can keep going on induction and not stall for quite a while. And remember the measurements because if you "stall" on the scale, it doesn't mean that you've "stalled" in losing inches. Keep up the great work!!

Great job. I stayed on induction for 3 or 4 months and then went up to 25 carbs which is where I still am today. I lost 12 lbs. in first 2 weeks and then an average of 2 lbs. a week for most weeks thereafter. I had 3 -4 week stalls after 30 lbs. lost, after 60 lbs. lost and 5 lbs. before goal. Good luck with your continued weight loss.
