So I closed out the first week of induction with a total loss of 6.1 pounds! Yay! I am so so excited! What a great feeling! I was hoping to make it a round 7 pounds but last night I tried the "Muffin in a Minute" recommended on the Atkins community board. It's made with ground flaxseed instead of flour. This poured a lot of fiber into my system and I think that actually kept the scale from budging now but having a regular influx of a strong fiber is good and needed and I am sure the weight loss will catch up in a day or so.
I am still striving for a loss of 15 pounds in a month. I am hoping that by adding a little more exercise I can race for the finish. I know 15 is an arbitrary number but it would just be so so fantastic!
So far I am enjoying the diet and losing weight. I don't feel deprived and I certainly feel like I have more energy mid-day and a more positive attitude.
Wish me luck!
