First time here! I just ran across this site while on another one and have been reading all the posts, getting ideas, enjoying the success stories etc. I've been on Atkin's for 4 months now and have lost 41 pounds so far. Many to go, but hanging in there! The weight loss has really slowed down lately (about 2 pounds a week) and from what I've been reading about the bars, I'm wondering if that's the problem! I've been eating Atkin's Advantage Bars for breakfast because I'm so tired of eggs and I'm usually not hungry in the morning but know I need to eat something. Now I'm not so sure if I should be doing the bars from all the negative responses about them! Guess I'll go off them for a few weeks and see what my weight loss is. I'll let you know! lol
