    Hi Guys,

    I've been on the atkins for just over two weeks now. first week was fab, lost around 6lbs.

    I'm also going to the gym four times a week as part of a gym challenge im doing.

    I'm meant to be getting weighed in tomoro but couldnt resist and weighed myself today... and i've only lost 1lb!!!

    i feel so down and defeated, my body is aching from all the cardio im doing and i havent cheated once with the diet! :cry:

    It's called PISS, post induction stall syndrome, and it's the body fighting back. stick with it, and all will be fine.
