Women with small children, how is your progress?
I have 2 children (1,9 and 4). I just started my fourth week on slow carb diet and up to now I have not seen really impressive results. The numbers on scale have moved only 1 kg down (I know these numbers do not mean anything), also the measurments are the same, except for waist (72cm to 67cm). I do kettlebell swings (16kg) and other exercises Tim suggests three times per week, also try to run 2 times per week. So I was just wondering which are the results for other women with small children? Is it easier for you to follow this programm and change your body or visa versa? I hope that for me the following two weeks (week 4 and week 5) will show better results. I also have my bodyfat % taken in two weeks, so maybe I will see bigger changes there.

My progress is pretty slow too. Ater 7 weeks I have only lost 10 pounds. I know that in the first 4 weeks it was a little faster than in the next three. I am hoping it picks up a bit. Plus I am still swelling, typically by now my swelling would be gone. I'll have to figure that one out.
I have 3 kids 8, 6, and 2. I have not yet incorporated exercise into the plan and the eating program has been pretty easy for me to follow, but I do feel like I need to tweak it a little more. I am not sure why my progress has slowed down so much, as I am still following the plan as written. Some people have been saying that the beans are making them stall. I wonder if there is anything to that. I haven't switched to edemame because they are soy and in the book Tim Ferriss says to stay away from soy. I do love them though. Someone suggested that I am not eating enough.
I have to admit I am getting discouraged but I am going to keep working toward my goal because I have to. 10 pounds is still more than 1 pounds a week which is very good!
I have 2 children (10months and 4 years) that drive me up a wall as well as I'm a full time nurse outside the home. I average 5-7lbs a week loss. I have lost 66lbs but have lost track of what week I'm on. Sorry.
I do minimal cardio 4x a week for 30mins but sometimes I don't exercise at all. My results are the same. I just like to have something to do. I'd say slow down on exercise.
I eat 4x a day. I make 5 days worth of meals (1 breakfast, 2 lunches, 1 dinner) in tupperware so I just grab a tupperware and throw it in the microwave and go. My 10 month old LOVES beans and veggies so I've been making extra for her to share. I haven't had a lot of trouble. Since starting SCD I've had so much more energy to boot.
If you want to talk my email isI can give you more mom specific tips or whatever. I've been doing this a little while now and I've found out what works for me finally.
