performance: losing 0.8 lb a week

I'm 57 years old. I went on my first diet at 11. Most of my life, my weight has been either normal or 15-20 pounds over. I have been watching my food and exercise intake since 11. I just find it increasingly difficult as I get older. What used to work doesn't seem to work as well.

Atkins Troubleshooting - one month of Induction with no loss
The constipation stuff is no fun! I find that lots of water and magnesium supplement has helped me. Before I did low carb, I had no problems in this area. After more than a year, I no longer feel constipated, but definitely do not go as much as I used to. Possibly the water retention tablets contribute to the problem; maybe give those up for a week or two and see what happens.

Could Atkins Bars make me gain?
I haven't found that the bars or shakes affect me in a negative way. That being said, I rely on whole foods. The bars or shakes are not used every day, and I do not have more than one day, even if I'm out and very busy. I bring other foods with me.

Ugh, the weight has been creeping up. With travel and other things I have not been focusing on what I need to do. Today, I am back on Atkins!
