I have followed the plan for 3 weeks (atkins) and lost 6lbs, yipppeee, but stood on the scales this morning and have put on 6lbs + not done anything different. I am not due on my period for 2 weeks.................HELP :confused:

Peanut, it's water. Unless of course yesterday you ate 21,000 calories ;) You cannot gain a lb of fat, let alone, 6 over night. I suspect that in a few days you'll wake up and the water weight will be gone just as it showed up, overnight.

Drink more water today, avoid those salty processed foods and hang in there. Weight fluctuates by as much as 7 lbs for some of us on a daily basis; you just picked a bad time to get on the scales.

I got stuck for a while too, don't panic, I found by upping my carbs a bit it started to shift again...I think there was some stress weightloss along the way but thats another story....

Izzy - thanks for the kind words last week...kids are both back to normal and driving us demented (which we are obviously pleased about - the lethargy was disturbing !) now we both have flu !

Peanut - DON'T GIVE IN :roll: :roll: :roll: it will come off again very soon I'm sure
