Hi have been on Atkins since last monday. i have done the diet before but fell off the wagon and put it all back plus more!! I find this forum very inspirational , helpful and friendly so hopefully I will manage to succeed this time around.
I have an enormous amount of weight to loose but it will be week by week. I found my health was starting to get affected by my weight so i am now more determined then ever.
I have had a very good week and have stuck to the diet without cheating except for drinking two tins of coke zero every day. Normally I could quite easily have 6 but I dont drink either coffee or tea . This week I have also been drinking at least 2lt water a day.
When I weighed myself this morning I was down 7.4kg! I had to weigh myself three times before I believed it. I am sure it is because i have such a lot to loose and a lot of it is water as I need to go day and night! I know I do loose a lot the first week as previously when I did SW I lost 5.8kg the first week so I was hoping to loose about the same.
Below is my diary of food for the week but from today will try to log it on every day and not all in one go.
