Hi I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Tracy, I ' m married and have 3 kids, live in the Midwest!
I have been following Atkins Induction for about 4 weeks now. I did have a bad slip - up early on but got right back on track the next day. I am not saying I haven ' t had a bite of something forbidden SINCE then but it has been very minimal. For mothers day my parents got me chocolate covered strawberries and I also got some thin mints! So I had one strawberry last night and one tonight, the rest of the candy is going to my family. So it hasn ' t been perfect, but I ' m doing the best I can. I have lost a total of 12lbs. so far. It ' s been tough for me to learn how to change my eating habits as food has always been so important to me but I ' m going to stick with it!

Still a loss of 12lbs BIG well done.
It is hard, but ANY Diet healthy eating plan is hard, Its just getting out of old habits which im sure we all will.
Ive only just starting but im looking to lose 60lbs.
Good Luck

12lbs is great! That ' s exactly how much I ' ve lost, feels good doesn ' t it?
Also, those chocolate covered strawberries sound really good, definitely worth a sneaky cheat ( don ' t tell anyone I said that! ) If there ' s any left over send ' em my way! [ / icon_wink. gif]

It can be hard to deal with gifts of food. Giving the mints to your family is a great idea.
On Induction, though, chocolate covered strawberries can really set you back. There ' s more room for variations like that during OWL.
I have told most people who know me well enough to give me a gift, that I am doing Atkins. Even so, I ' ve received food gifts that the gift - giver knows is not on my food plan. I just thank them and then serve it to whoever is nearby.
I ' m not sure if our loved ones forget what we ' ve committed to eat, or if they don ' t agree with our decision, so they sabotage it. Either way, we need to be firm.
