Wow, that's interesting. I'm only second go-around with Atkins, too, and it's definitely going slower that it did the first time. I lost 8 pounds on induction but now, 5 months later, I've only lost an addition 12-14 pounds. I was down about 40 by this time my first go-around.
I'm not trying to lose weight quickly. I've basically given myself about 18 months to lose 100 pounds. I thought that maybe I was sort of sabotaging myself simply because I wasn't rushing.
But maybe not? Is it possible that there's a physical reason why it doesn't work, or works less well, in subsequent attempts? That might explain a lot.
