Well, we started on the same date and I've lost about the same as you, doing Atkins, and that's with a couple of weeks off due to illness. However, people switching from a vlcd tend to gain a little at first, and you won't get the big initial loss from ditching your glycogen stores. It's important to be aware that you will lose slower on Atkins than you would on Cambridge ss, almost certainly. But you can eat, and if you stick to it you will lose.
This is good for me ............ xx

i've lost 22 lb in 7 months.

you might think that is slow progress.
but i think its fantastic!
i can't believe its 7 months, doesn't particularly feel like a 'diet' and i find it difficult to lose on a proper food diet, it's great that this time i've not had to resort to food substitutes.
and, if it keeps steadily going, will be around 3 stone in a year, now that sounds better, huh? :)

I'm half way to goal after 3 months - main upsides are that I never feel hungry and can drink wine :D

I think, as with most diets, some people lose quickly and others lose slowly as we all have different metabolisms etc. I am a slow loser I think but I am losing and I'm not hungry and I don't have to live on shakes and bars so it suits me fine.
