    Hello!
    I have been doing Atkins since April and have so far lost 21lbs. I still have a long way to go, and would like to lose at least another 3 stone.
    I read the book cover to cover and it was like an awakening to me, and with a family history of diabetes, it just seemed to make sense.
    The weight has come off very gradually, which was frustrating for me, as I can usually lose about 4-5lb a week, but I am so glad now and appreciate that this is the right way to do it, as if I have slipped and cheated the weight doesn't pile back on.
    I have just come back from Florida, and I confess I had a blow out while there and just ate whatever I wanted. Although I think all the walking I did while there must have helped as I only put on 2lb in 10 days.
    So now I am back on induction, trying to stick to the exact food list and looking forward to the pounds falling off!
    Hope to get to know everyone over time!

    Hi Jo and welcome,I understand what you mean about the weight loss being frustrating,I have lost 14.5lb in 2 months and it now seems to be .5-1lb a wk.The good thing though is I am enjoying this way of eating.
    I am sure that 2lb will soon disappear now you're back on induction,good luck.
