    I've passed several of my target and not really moved on to OWL yet. After I hit each target I still find myself wanting to lose a bit more (esp. tummy/chest) and am unwilling to lose the momentum of induction. Also when I'm properly low carbing I feel great.

    Have been on induction for about 4.5 months. I think I'm kind of addicted to induction!

    Lol, trust me you'll be far more sorted than I am. I'd love to get to have my 20s over again and actually do something with them, but nothing to be done except start lying about my age.

    I moved into the first phase of OWL after 6 months on induction. I took OWL very slowly though, only raised by five carbs a month

    I remember turning 30 and for some reason it was incredibly painful. None of my birthdays since then have felt nearly so bad. Although I intend being sorted before my 40th, lol.

    it's be great to see a few more answers to this, i'm not sure when to start OWL, if you really do lose better then that sounds good, i like Jim's idea of raising every month rather than weekly. i don't see any point of coming out of induction until after my holiday in may as i want as close to a beach body as i can get by then :)
