    Now been on this diet for two weeks. lost 2pounds first week, now put on a pound.
    It is not pre-menstrual as not due until around 12th June.
    Have been in Ketosis all the time. (today I am not)
    Have only eaten stuff on the allowed list.
    Will cut out cheese and cream. Am so fed up.
    Have bought the vitamins for "resistance" and I have only lost 1cm from waist (but could have measured slightly different place)
    Did vlcd for 5 weeks prior to Atkins, so in 7 weeks I have lost only 911b.
    HELP:mad::cry:

    Awk woman, I don't know why this is the case! It must feel so disheartening. have you been measuring yourself? Perhaps you're losing inches. There is a section in the book that advises on those who seem to be resistant. It's harsh but it might do the job.

    Maybe there are things we can help with? Would be a shame to give up so soon

    Awww hunni, don't give up, maybe it will all happen at once and you'll get a big loss! I can't give advice on CD as I've never done it but you need support so thought I'd give some. As Black Rose says ~ maybe you're losing inches so take some measurements and see.
    Give it another couple of weeks, if you have a counsellor person that weighs you, talk to her see if she can give you any help or advice. Have you anybody close that you can confide in that will support you, tell you not to give up?.
    I'm sure I don't need to tell you that the forums will support you, I only joined yesterday and just flicking the the various posts the support is here for everybody regardless of what type of weight loss you're doing!

    If you've come straight from VLCD then you have to give your body a chance to adjust to eating again. Give it time.

    Thanks all.
    Am going to stop the cheese/cream.
    Am off on holiday Friday- so this is the worst time for the diet to fail.
    I am so angry, I am going to dig my heels in and not give up. The flab is going and that is an end to it!!!

    That's the way, fight back! Atkins will work for you, maybe just needs a bit of tinkering :)

    I lost 7lb in the first two weeks and then put 8lb on over the next two weeks. I was devastated! Then I learned about cheese being a staller and dropped it. Yep! I started losing again. I now don't bother to weigh either. I just go by how my clothes feel and what people say when they haven't seen me for a while. :D
    Stick with it. It really is worth it.

    How do you feel though? Have you noticed a difference in how you feel day to day while on Atkins?

    Thanks Leanne. Am so glad I can relate to you.

    Yep, that sounds lovely. If you click on the link in my signature you will see what I eat. It is clean and green to the max but I love it. Hope it helps.

    BTW - I ask how you feel because even though at times my weight/measurements stay the same, I still feel way better than when I was eating before doing Atkins. Even if my losses would near stop completely, I would still eat this way.

    Hope you see some losses soon, I know it can get you down a bit.

    Hi Suepass or should I say kindred spirit. OK so neither of us have had a huge loss like others, but that's OK we're getting there. Don't throw in the towel yet, let's get through this one day at a time. I'm rooting for yer gal!

    Don't leave us! Don't give up! Also look for stalkers. Mine were Atkins bars but cream, cheese and citric acid are also common

    Have a wonderful holiday x x
