following: Atkins
performance: losing 1.4 lb a week

Atkins low carb/healthy, clean eating is my way of life. I love it. I've lost just shy of 30 lbs. My belly is way smaller and was the first thing I really noticed changing, and I've lost about 15 all-over inches so far! I'm in OWL on Atkins and kinda pre-maintenance. Weight loss stalled a while back, so I know how to do maintenanc! I started fooling around with calories during the stall and lowering the calories and really watching portion sizes helped me take off more lbs. I'm committed to logging my food. I use my calories wisely with healthy foods. I don't beat myself up if I go off plan, but I sure feel better when I stay on it. I had put back on about 8 lbs and felt like a toad and could see it in my belly size. Once back on plan and eating healthier, I lost the 8 plus a couple more and my belly went back down. My partner could see a difference. This WOE is just such a reward to myself. I am at my lowest, and I've got about 6 more to goal. Then I'll see if I want to take off more than that.
I do make some fantastic low-carb, sugar-free desserts, thanks to the many folks out there with their web sites and recipes! Thank you!
My partner and I have made this plan something we can life with for the rest of our lives. We pretty much eat the same foods. I appreciate FatSecret for providing us a place to log food and exercise (Thank you so much for the updates on the site!!!), chat, support, motivate, and be supported and motivated.
Hang in there! It's worth it!

RDI and weight gain
Good for you! It takes some tweaking.

I just don't believe you can be sedentary and lose at a pace to make one happy. Move it to lose it! And it doesn't mean it has to be strenuous. Just do some moving.

RDI and weight gain
I agree with those of you questioning the RDI. I started tweaking my plan to break my plateau and lost 10lbs! I read a Jilliam Michaels article in a magazine and she talked about 1200 calories. If I stay around that, no more than 1400, and keep my net carbs low (I do Atkins), I lose. I'm about to break my next line and get to my goal in 5 lbs. Then I'll decide if I want to lose more. My measurements are going down and clothes are looser, even if I don't show any change on the scale. I've lost 30 total. I'm thrilled. I've made this plan my own so I will stick to it for life. I can't go by an arbitrary calculator. One size DOES NOT fit all! Success!

What to do about clothes?
Congratulations! Now you can sell your larger clothes on eBay and buy some in smaller sizes.
I also love NYDJ! I had no idea you could find them on eBay. I'm not on there enough to look. Cool!

Success!

oops!
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!

SUGAR ALCOHOLS
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.
