Newbie to the Veteran Side

It's funny, I never really considered myself an Atkins "veteran," but I think I am. I'm in the second phase now and have been doing Atkins for a month and a half. I started out at 242 and did a "semi-Atkins" thing for a week where I lost 5 pounds and went down to 237. Then during induction I plummeted to 230, so in three weeks I had lost 12 pounds. I stayed in the 228-232 range for a week or so but then... started cheating. I went up to 234 but have been going down ever since. I still regret that cheat.

Right now I'm at 222 and have finally found my "formula"... I had been stalled for a bit, but now it's dropping... might not be fast, but it's continuous, and I couldn't really ask for anything more.

So... hi!!!

you have not been stalled. please be careful about what you use for words. stalls are sensitive to some of us who sit in them for 5+months at a time.

i am also not so sure you would be considered a veteran... you are still extremely new to this lifestyle.

but welcome. and g'luck.
Three weeks is not a stall?
4 weeks with no loss of weight or inches AND no cheating is considered a stall.
Well, sorry. I had three weeks no lost weight, cheating, nor inches, didn't know I'd offend people...
