So I have 4 stone to lose and I need to lose at least a dress size by January as I have my first fitting for my dress at the end of it. Found the most gorgeous dress, costs a bloody fortune so I am determined to look as good as I can in it.
I did Cambridge 3 years ago and lost 2 stone, then regained it back and an extra 2 stone from medication (just my luck!) have tried so many diets since then only managing to lose a stone without much ease only to regain it quicker then I lost it.
After finding my dress I downloaded the atkins book onto my kindle and started reading. I'm not going to lie, I was a little unsure after years of doing every thing low fat, I just couldn't get used to eating bacon and cream cheese.
So now that my first week is done I can report:
> an 8lb loss!!!! Week one
> no sugar cravings no carb cravings and no "withdrawal" symptoms
> bags of energy
> better sleep
> waking up early and not feeling tired all day
> not hungry (a definite bonus, I was starving on Cambridge)
> no mood swings and not snappy with the hubby to be
> normally I go through about 12 feminax tablets during my monthly, I used a grand total of 2 last week, and that's only because I was having lazer hair removal done, so next to no PMS
> and most importantly it has made me a much happier, calmer, enthusiastic person.
Needless to say I LOVE THIS DIET! Why didn't I start it years ago?
Roll on week two
