I am doing induction of atkins, because as of yet, I don't trust myself on the other phases. I am a working mother of a two year old and on my way to my wedding day (June 18th) I need some moral support here people! HELP!

I think I'm doing good, I've lost almost 20 pounds since February. I'm happy with the way I'm eating and I know it will take me a long time since I have a lot of weight to loose.
and you?

5 pounds is great! Slow and steady is what you want. And your weight will slow during your period, due to water retention. But it will pick back up in a few days.
