dandr.after two months i started to follow 72.i have been playing
with 2or 3# loss since. ive only had two small cheats since ive started
low carbing. will i lose weight trying stillmans and how come im not
losing weight on atkins. im just getting really frustrated that im not
losing consistantly.even 1# loss a week would be nice. im 5ft and i
want to get down to 130.
All im eating on atkins is meat,cooked with butter.
please i realy need to know what i can do.
i only drink coffee and water.
To give up is to say i dont believe in my self.
I will never give up.
The fight has just begun.

Hi At it!
I am sorry you are not losing. I know and can fully understand how frustrating it can be. I started my low carb adventure doing Atkins as well. After about 2 or 3 months, my weight stalled and did not budge at all. I converted to Stillmans thinking the amount of fat in my diet was causing the delay. (Stillman's is virtually no fat. . so butter would be out - mostly tuna, turkey and chicken.. ). . I struggled and struggled and still nothing came off. Finally my peeps on the Stillman's board convinced me to go to the Dr. and low and behold. . I was having thyroid issues. My doc said its very common in women and many don't even know they have problems. Have you been checked? I would highly recommend it. That may be your problem. At any rate, please feel free to join the rest of us on the May board and maybe someone else can offer some better advice. Best of luck to you. .
Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says "O Crap.. She's up!!!
Please be patient, God isn't finished with me yet.
