performance: losing 0.2 lb a week

Atkinslow carb/healthy, clean eating is now way of life. I love it. I've lost almost 20 lbs. It's not a lot, but my belly is way smaller and I've lost about 12 all-over inches! I'm in OWL on Atkins, but weight loss stalled about 6 months ago. I'm now re-committing to logging my food and have, as of March 11, 2013, joined and am participating in a Run to get Fit Challenge. I'd like to lose 20 more lbs, but would settle for 15 if happy with inches lost.
I'm excited to be doing this Challenge. My partner and friends think I look like I've lost more, but I sure feel good... (and I think I look much better too!)

Congrats on the 8 lbs! I've lost 23; I've been on Atkins over 2 years; I log food almost everyday. It helped me lose the last 5, and I'm confident I'll lose the next lbs. by logging food and tracking calories, carbs, etc.
Like you, it's easy, WAY TOO EASY, to eat more calories, bigger portions, snack...
I'll keep logging food. It's just what I do now.

Continued success!

Wow! Excuse me. Obviously a sensitive subject for you. Everyone should do their research and do what works for them. Not this big a deal.

Weight loss pills
I was type 2 diabetic on 2 meds several years ago. I age low-glycemic w/in the diabetic range for how many carbs allowed each meal. I lost 80 lbs. and got off both meds during this time. With age and slower metabolism, some weight was gained. I feel that Atkins is one of the BEST for diabetes as you drastically cut carbs (sugar) and eat super healthy. I'm working to keep myself from ever being diabetic again that natural way. I rarely have any cravings. If I do, I have a small amount of what I want and get back on plan. I'm exercising more than ever and I feel fantastic.
I wish you the best with this. Diabetes is an awful disease, aging your cells and damaging so much of the body. Good for you for taking charge!
You'll do it!

So discouraged!
Going for a walk this morning. May get in a run, or do it tomorrow. Watching everything I weight change. I'm bummed! 20 lbs. off and the progress just stopped! It's been about 7 months. Age! It's all about age and hormones! Ugh!!!

OK! You are right. Muscle DOES NOT burn fat, it burns more calories. I stand corrected. It helps. Thanks for the correction. Now I'm waiting for the results for myself in the burning of ANYTHING. Confused

Eating smaller meals, less amounts, more veggies than protein on my plate. It's making a diff, obviously, because I've also eaten cookies and some candy!
