I also lost 8 lbs this week, but it was the same weight that I gained over the holidays. Hoping to continue the trend, and possibly lose another 5 next week.

The weather's been nice here, so I did a lot of walking last week, in addition to being faithful to plan, journaling, drinking all the water, etc.

Have faith in yourself - don't give up - keep trying. All of those platitudes can help if you take them seriously. Or you can be cynical, like I was for a long time. Just keep at it, and try, try, try.
Losing weight is a thing that you can accomplish by NOT doing something.

Depends on your definition of signifinificant. Ive lost 15lbs in 5 weeks and feel great about. Its significant on my frame. I fit alot more pre baby clothes. There are lots more people on here who have lost way more then I have to.

I didn't lose weight as much as body fat and inches. I had it tested at my gym. I lost 17% body fat in 3 months going from 41% down to 24% body fat. I only lost about 5% of my weight because I gained muscle by strength training. The scale isn't the only number you should be watching.

I also went from high cholesterol and triglicerides to normal levels in that same 3 months. That was my major motivation for doing Atkins. It was my biggest accomplishment, getting healthy.

Love the food that loves you back.

Take it one day at a time!
