    Stay with it hun, read over some of our posts, you'll soon see that most of us have a week if not weeks where we stall. Check your food intake, maybe cut back on cheese and anything with citrics give a miss as this could be the cause

    I can't find it! What does it stand for?

    geordiegirl is this your second week of Atkins? From reading on here it seems that most people have a good loss in the first week and then STS or only lose a pound in the second, I think it's normal. Stick with it!

    Jim told me that as i had lost 1st in 2wks my body had stalled so it could catch up. I lost 3lb last week and a lb this week. Only small amount this week but still in the right direction. It will happen babe, be patient. I understand how frustrating it is, 4wks and not a single movement on the scales but now it is. Just keep posting and we will all be here to see you through

    Hmm it's possibly carb creep as well then Jo, we become complacent. I had many stalls during my 4 years before maint. It's normal.
