your obviousley doing something right. if youve dropped a dress size it is more likely that youve lost inches of your body rather than on the scales. i would measure yourself and weigh yourself everyweek.

i didnt lose anything on the scale recently, but im now in a size down also.

hope this helps. xxx

ps. whats these lovely curries ur doing, i love curry? got a nice recipe for me? x

you've gone from just shakes to eating food!, you're body is adjusting to receving food again, the fact that you've not gained weight (brilliant, some wouldve gained a couple of pounds due to the change) and the fact you have lost a dress size is working for you, as long as you stay at under 20g of carbs you will lose lbs and inches, carry on your great work.

I too have been really good on Atkins, and despite losing good weight before, i haver not lost a single lb in nearly 3 weeks.
But i have noticed clothes getting bigger, so just wait it out, i`m sure the weight will have to drop soon.
I know how disheartening it is.

its weird isnt it how can u lose inches and no weight u must lose fat to get smaller but if no weight lost the fat must still be there so how come the clothes gettin bigger lol
