I took my measurements before I started my Atkins Induction Phase. After the 2 weeks, I lost 3-1/2 pounds, but I remeasured, and I had lost about 9 inches. Sometimes for me, the inch loss is more impressive than the weight loss.
Glad your stall is over - that is no fun.

I know for me if my weight stalls its because I'm lazy and eat things bordering on higher carbs. Like I'll add sweet and low to every drink= 4-6 extra carbs a day! when I'm diligent about the carbs the weight loss resumes! Sometimes I just feel so good its not a big deal not to be losing! Before I blamed my pain on my "fat". Now I see it was the food!
Any added energy would be welcome, long days at work are tougher than they use to be.
My main goal is to lose weight and shake up the plateau that I've been sitting/slipping/sliding on for much to long.
I wonder if our body simply decide it likes a weight and refuses to move from that particular #...Perhaps this is the first of many shake ups for it to finally let me work toward my healthy goal weight.

I know slow and steady will get me there, however, I seem to be at a standstill at the moment...
Way to go, JM!! It just gets better and better. Even when the weight loss slows the physical improvements are wonderful!
