Hi, I used to post here years ago as Blue Orchid, and have lurked for a while since then. I now could really do with opinions from you guys, but my original account has locked up, so I'm back with a new one!
I'm 44. Have had great success with Atkins since 2005. I got to goal weight, sustained it, and whenever it wobbled I just reset myself with a couple of weeks of classic Atkins induction.
This time it's not working.
An injury and depression knocked me sideways a year ago. I took refuge in carbs and gained four stone. It's my own fault. I messed up. I picked myself up six weeks ago and put myself firmly back into Atkins Induction. 80% fat, 20% protein. Dark red ketostix and my mental fog vanished. Hurrah! But I haven't lost a single pound. My weight hasn't changed on the scales or on my belt notch. Nothing. Two weeks ago I upped to 90% fat, 10% protein. Still nothing.
Please, any ideas where I should start looking to see why my weight isn't moving? Is it an age thing? I know I need to change something, I must being something wrong, but I don't know where to start!
Thanks for taking the time to read this. x
