initial weight loss
I think most folks loose a lot of weight at first due to water loss. than the weight loss slows down. or stops? I tried atkins 3 yrs ago. I am a mid 40's male, 6'-1", 290 lbs. I work out 4 times/week. I consider myself fairly active but have bad eating habits. weight loss initial 3 months. 30lbs/20lbs/20lbs. for a total of 70lbs in 3 mos. kept it off for about 1 yr and than put it all back on. started atkins 10 weeks ago and have lost 40lbs so far. I think I am eating more than before and thats why i am behind my original pace. I also think I lost fewer lbs the 1st month and picked up the pace the 2nd month. not sure why.
