Buddy Request sent!
You can do this... I was on induction for about 4 months...until I lost my first 50 lbs. Then I added a little fruit..and (finally) sunflower seeds to my salads... made all the difference.
Bottom line... you are worth the effort it will take...and , like Olga said, YOU CAN DO THIS!! Much success!

It works - it really, really works! Having good buddies who are in the same boat helps an awful lot too.

I just sent buddy requests to all y'all! I'm really enjoying Atkins!
DISCLAIMER: I expect to lose this weight over the next 6 months to 5 years. I'm not going to feel like a failure if it takes an entire month to lose 1 pound. I'm going to feel like a success when that happens! I may offer advice that I'm currently not taking myself. Feel free to call me on that!

Good luck! I used Atkins a few years ago and was happily surprised by the results. Found myself eating a huge amount of cashews (thanks, Costco) whenever I got hungry. Hope it works as well for you!Smile

If you are still looking for a local (real life)Atkins buddy, take a look at WannaBuddy.com.
Trying to live a healthy and happy life. My wife and I feel strongly that social interaction and a constantly growing circle of friends is important. That led us to create WannaBuddy.com so that there's always a new buddy for what ever you want to do! Please check it out and let me know what you think. Thanks!

I too am thinking about extending my induction period. Although, I have only done this for a week, and by the 2nd, I may feel differently. I miss fruit a little. But am loving my avocado!

Hi everyone!

Amy I stayed on induction for 4 weeks until two days ago and I am trying to move into Phase 2 this week and add berries instead of nuts...we will see what happens... I may end up back in induction. I sent you a buddy request and anyone else that would like to buddy up may add me. It was a whole lot easier to get to the place we are than to get back to where we want to be but with patience and support we can all do it!

Hi there! I started induction 4 1/2 weeks ago. Was successful in the past and now am struggling, so support some support is much appreciated!!! First week lost 6 pounds (WHOO HOOOO!), second week lost no lb's or inches, third week lost 2 pounds and 1.5 inches (awesome!) and fourth week GAINED 2.5 pounds and 1 inch. Sad have done Atkins in the past (why did I ever leave?) and lost 17 pounds in 2 weeks and then 11 pounds the first week. Am hoping third time is a charm but my body doesn't seem to have the same idea that my head does.

Getting ready to start the Adkins diet and induction period. Very nervous since I have been tracking my net carbs for the past few days!
