Thanks for the input..I will give that a try and see what happens.
Also,,I checked the thread on supplements,,cause I am very erratic,,cause I dont know whats absolutley essential,,,,and they mentioned L'Carnitine 3 times a day for the Metabolic Resistant,,,so I am gonna try that too,,,,in fact, I just started.
I will let ya know what happens!!! Thanks again!!!

L-carnitine is a good idea, I've been using that for a while too, and it's given me a lot of energy!

Let us know how you go!

Energy I can handle!!!! Been feeling kinda tired too,,,think it was cause i stopped taking the potassium andmagnesium. Started the up today too.
In another thread I posted what I ate,,and another member said it looked like I was in starvation mode cause I had no veggies. I had been out for a few days , but tonight I had a salad,,so far today 14 carbs , but 2880 calories, I hope that doesnt work adversely that the calorie count was too hiigh. Got my fingers crossed,,it is a year today that I have been LC.
Hope a year from now I have lost another 42 pounds!!

Hey musicmama,
First of all, don't give up. i had a stall and found that I was eating too much cheese and not enough fat. The fat thing has been difficult for me because it goes against everything that I have ever been told about dieting. I also eat my vegies (usally a salad with chicken) at lunch.
Don't give up, hang in there and you will do fine.

Thanks for the words of encouragement!!
I am encouraged today,,,,I have been doing without all the caffeine,,sweetener,,(except a little spenda in my coffee), cut way back on the cheese, stopped the diet pop.. drinking water,,taking the Lcarnitine,,,and today I can see some changes,
I had more energy, and my skirt was looser!! I didnt weigh,,,gonna wait awhile on that,,,but I even was thirsty, and that is a good sign. been drinkinga lot more water too. So,,,,I feel like I have made some progress!! I will keep ya posted!

It helps break down body fat .......I read up on it in some of the posts on supplements...they said to take 500mg before every meal (3 times a day) , it is great for the metabolic resistant slow loser, so Ibought some, it gives you energy too. It is in the vitamin department at Wal Mart or any drug store.

Default My stall

I lost twenty lbs. with some ease. As of late March or early April, however, my weight loss came to a halt. I had spent a couple of days walking and I managed to lose a lb. I also noticed that I am not drinking nearly enough water. So I will also change that and report back to ya.

Hi everyone. I am a newbee turtle!
I am so glad I found this forum. I have been following Atkins since May and couldn't understand why everyone was loosing all this weight and I have only lost 5 pounds-no inches. The only way I lost the 5 lbs was on that Fat Fast and that was after 3 weeks of induction with no results. I remain on induction proably forever! I read the above article and thought is was great. I drink 9-24 oz of water a day- drink nothing else and go to the gym 5 days a week. Fromt he article above I noticed bacon was on the list- This is something I might consider not eating anymore? .

Default I a turtle too

Im a TURTLE too & today Im O-KAY with it.. I lost weight real fast the first time I low carb'ed and tomorrow will be my 2nd full month since i totally committed to LC as a lifestyle. I have only lost 6-7 #, but I know I am eating right and the weight will eventually come off. It's all good. I just wish everyone love and peace with themselves and others. If we were as hard on our friends sometimes are with ourselves.. we would not have any friends.. That is just my two cents.
Peace, Nicol

Default Prescription Drugs and Hormones that impede weight loss

I just came across this thread and read the article---but when I click on the link to where it reads Prescription Drugs and Hormones that impede weight loss it says page cannot be displayed.

Can anybody direct me to a page that lists the drugs?

Thanks,
"T"

I just checked the link and it worked but the site seems to be really slow. It's from http://atkins.com, the Atkins official website.

Terri K. Did you say you're only drinking 9 to 24 oz of water, and nothing else, You've got to drink water, I drink 64 oz a day, plus de caf coffee, and I know, I'm not drinking enough. If you are even slightly dehydrated, you won't lose. chris
