Is it reasonable to expect it to take up to months to loose on Atkins?
Taking your measurements can be a great tool for monitoring your progress! What's great is you can see your body is getting smaller even if the scale doesn't reflect it. This is especially useful if you are exercising and may be building muscle.

Diet Soda's - Do they slow you down?
I've always continued to drink diet soda while losing weight. However, I gave it up for almost two weeks and increased my water intake. I started drinking diet soda for four or so days, and drank less water, and my weight's back up a few pounds. I don't know if it's the increase in diet soda, the decrease in water, or both. I'm hoping an increase in water and laying off the diet soda for a few days will cause the scale to shift back downwards. I agree with those who say it probably depends on your own body's reactions.

MIO has sucrolose, bad ? !!
I agree with those who say don't get deterred by one "bad" thing. As you progress, you'll learn more and more about what works for you. Persistence is key. I lost 25 pounds this past winter on Atkins, and what I found was that if I did indulge in something, or go over my carb count for the day, I just did a few days of induction until I could tell I was losing weight again, and went right back to what had been working for me until the indulgence. Eating a cupcake and going "oops" and getting back on plan is WAY better for you than eating one cupcake, going "oops, I blew it" and eating five more. Don't get discouraged, you can totally do this!!!

Need quick exercise tips that really work!
I find the best way for me to get any exercise in during the day is to go on a walk on my lunch breaks. I mean, I'm already stuck at work, what else am I going to be doing? Sitting on my rear for an entire hour? Some of my co-workers have also gone for short walks on their breaks. Speaking of the 10 minute solutions, I did one of those 10-minute trainer sessions ONCE and I must say, it was intense!!!

Late Night Workouts
I walk one mile on my hour lunch breaks, because based on experience I know I won't a) wake up early to exercise b) exercise after work. This is good for a few reasons. If I do it every day, I am working out 5 days a week. Plus, I can, if I so desire, go on a walk with my husband or do some other work out when I get home or on the weekends, and any exercise I get like that is a bonus! Depending on your work/class schedule maybe you could figure something similar out for your own situation if late night workouts don't work out for you.
