As is usual for me and others on Atkins, we lose inches and not pounds. For the last 2 weeks I have been on induction and lost no weight but I lost 2 inches around my waist, 1 around my hips and 1 around my belly. If I hadn't measured myself I would be very discouraged but I'm not.

This is just a reminder to measure yourself too.

Love the food that loves you back.

Take it one day at a time!

Don't be discouraged. Everyone's body is different and process weigh loss differently. Some ppl lose inches first, then your body catches up and you start to lose weight. Sometimes it takes your body a full month to see results as your body needs to adjust to losing what it is use to. Also, be careful not to eat too much pre-packaged foods as it is cured with sugar, which can hold your weight loss back.
