    TOTM...first bump at 7 1/2 weeks...just couldnt control myself...all new stressors...work, home, neighbors...and gave into the carb KING...today is day 3 of my slump...and figured I should ride the wave til the end of the week...and get back on track.

    I am so proud of myself for 28 pounds down...and really set myslef up to complete 4 months on ATKINS without a blip...was I too unrealistic?

    I am hoping that this blip would have a silver lining -- maybe a whoosh weigh in -- especially since my past weeks have been 1 and 2 pounds...

    any ideas?:rolleyes:

    Just get right back into your Atkins eating and you will be fine. This isn't just a diet, it is meant to be for life, so we will all encounter blips and days (and more!) 'off' and times when we can't resist temptation. This is how so called normal people eat, after all!

    All the best x

    This is my fourth week, so not that long. I go for walks with my son at the moment (pushing a pram with a 2 stone toddler is hard work for me! lol), trying to build my activity up slowly lol x
