    Hi ya'll,

    I really hit a stall + 5 lb. gain after over a year on the diet, but since my Ketostix (god bless them) still show pink to purple I know something is going on...just not sure what ensive

    I did notice that my face was showing extreme wrinkling from the weight loss and now that I've stalled it's beginning to smooth out and plump back up. Could definitely have been dehydration causing the look and even my saggies are beginning to improve. So I'm not giving up!

    After so much weight lost, I'm not surprised that my body would want to "readjust". I was losing hair and that has also stopped so maybe I'm just getting ready to start again. Keep your fingers crossed :wave

    Thanks so much for the info! It does explain a lot of what is happening to me and I'll just "keep on keeping on" :nod until I reach goal.

    Default OH THANK GOODNESS YOU PUT THIS POST UP!

    Hi everyone! :wave

    Thank you SO much for this post. This is my first time on this forum and as you can see by my stats I have a long way to go. I have to admit it was hard to post those numbers :yikes hahahaha. But I lost my first 15pounds in the first couple of weeks and then nothing since March 20th! It must be this stall you're talking about here. It makes sense! Everyone says to stick through it and I am, I am! I have to admit, though, it sure is frustrating as all get out :bang and I've been trying so hard to figure out what the heck is going on! I know I"m doing things right and I'm journaling and I know I'm not going over 20g per day. In fact, most days I set around 10-15g! Today was the first day I had an Advantage bar and I ate only 1/2 of it.

    So I've got a plan. I'm not going to bother with the scale until the end of April. If at the end of April stand on the scale and don't see a loss, not only will I lose my mind, I'll know that I'm on a true stall.

    Thanks again for this post. You have no idea how desperately I needed to read this information. You may have just saved me from throwing in the towel.

    Default Stall Broke!!!!

    YEAH!!! Finally lost the additional 5 pounds from the stall and have dropped from a 22 down to a 16 pant size! The scales still haven't registered anymore weight lost, but it's just a matter of time. :yes Also can now wear a smaller bracelet (which my hubby bought to help me celebrate - he's a doll)...what a shock!

    Hang in there....something's happening, it's just not always in plain sight :joy

    Just kept the carbs at my OWL level of about 35 and checked the Ketostix to be sure I was still in Ketosis and FINALLY it's started again. It's amazing the boost I get from reading all the posts here to keep on...they've really get me going.

    Thanks ya'll,

    Default THANK YOU!!

    Thank you so much for sharing this info! I just finished my 2 weeks of induction, lost 6 pounds and stalled on the 3rd week. I am expecting miracles and step on the scale every day 2-3 times. I was almost desperate until I read your post and now I am relieved. Thank you very much again!

    Default Stalled!

    Thank you soooooo much for your post. I did a clean induction for 3 weeks and lost 17 pounds! On the 4th and 5th weeks-nothing! I now realize that my previous loss is awesome and I should be PATIENT-been overweight for most of my life and the quick weight loss rather threw me.
    I will only weigh once a week... I will only weigh once a week...

    Hey Carol,
    I know exactly how you feel... I've been in the same boat. Looks like I started about 4 days before you, and for the past two weeks the scale has gone upwards for me. Partially because of P.I.S.S., and partly because of coming off a daily water pill for BP. It's so easy to become discouraged watching that scale creep back up after all of the hard work being put into it.

    But, I'm hoping that I'm coming out of it today!! This morning I've got that "I can't drink enough water to fill me up" feeling", and I also can't stay away from boys room! This is the first time I've had that feeling since coming off meds.

    I guess stalls are inevitable, but we have to stay the course.

    Calling it GOAL at this point. I'm happy with where I am now and hope to stay there, or maybe even take it down a little more.

    just remember stalls as defined by Dr Atkins are 4 weeks with no sclae nor inches lost not the slight hesitation in scale weight loss experieneced after the initial weight loss. P I S S sounded better then post induction hesitation syndron so the slight hesitation became a stall in the tital but not in reality.
