Question losing the last 15 lbs on Atkins, anyone?

Good day everyone. i've a few questions regarding Atkins:

Que 1: any tips on losing that last 15 lbs on Atkins?
Que 2: Ways to break that induction flu?
que 3: ways to combat constipation? frustrated!!!

I've lost about 0.5-1 kg for the last 4-5 weeks on Atkins induction, i found it is pretty slow given that some lost more than 20 lbs in just 3 weeks.
I'm still having that induction flu feeling tired by mid-afternoon. Constipation still bad (only once or twice WEEKLY!!) although im taking psyllium husk daily+ drinking min 10 cups water ...
The good thing is my blood glucose has been lowered a bit and having minimum sweet/ dessert craving.

pre-diet blood work for thyroid is normal.

Been following strictly, no cheating.
avg daily calories 1800-2000 cal (2 sundays i consumed 2200 cal);
avg net carb 15-18g (min. 12g from veg);
taking krill/ fish oil/ co enzyme q10/ chromium/ psyllium husk;
10 cups water per day
cardio 45mins 4-5 times per week
low weight training 2 times per week.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance
Atkins induction: start 10 Oct 2013
29yo/ F/ 1.60m
pre-diabetics, family history of diabetes & thyroid issues

Start: 58kg
Current: 57.5 kg (15 Nov)
Goal: 51 kg; restore blood glucose; maintain normal T3/ T4; reduce body fat %
