    CornishTT''s weight loss diary

    Hi all,

    My name is Toni and I have recently started Atkins again Friday 2 Aug 2013. I did it about 9 years ago and was the fittest and healthiest I'd ever been when I was on it. Going to gym 5 days a week, swam 2km a day, and felt fab.

    Not only was I slim, at 11st (I'm 5ft8.5) but also felt healthy as before I started I had various symptoms suggesting I have candida overgrowth in my stomach and system (including eczema, thrush, pimples, anemia, sugar and carb addiction, the list goes on).

    While on Atkins all these symptoms disappeared and I felt fantastic.

    ANYHOW, that was then and since that time I have gained 10st, attributed to having two kids and owning a sweet shop (yes, imagine, a sweet shop, in which you are the owner and own all the sweets, and can eat anything you want!).

    So the youngest is now 16 months and the sweet shop was sold over a year ago. I lost about 3 stone since I had by youngest. But my Candida symptoms are back with a vengeance and I have been controlling the eczema with medicated shampoo but I want to rid myself of the symptoms and be slim and healthy for myself.

    I know it sounds selfish but as a mother and wife it always feels like I'm doing everything for everyone else and do for myself last.

    Well, not this. This is for me and I want to slip on a size 10 again and not think twice about buying clothes or even leaving the house as I don't have anything that fits me!

    So here goes, I hope to post on here daily my diary (also using myfitnesspal - user name AtkinsFTW - feel free to friend me on there) and since it is still early days not in ketosis yet but enjoying the not craving food every waking moment. Increased protein n fats def suppressing appetite somewhat.

    Also, would love to try bp coffee, sounds amazeballs! Lol

    It you're still reading this well done for your staying power, lol, sorry a bit long. Hope you have a good Sunday!

    The journey so far...

    Re: My Atkins diary

    Thanks for the encouragement Susie! I love experimenting with food, it's also partly what got me where I am, so recipes will be forthcoming!

    I never had it last time but fried haloumi cheese, why did I never think of it before!? Even better with a dash of lemon juice (n count carbs of course!) Salty and lemon (n squeaky!) lol

    Fat, protein, carb breakdown, seems like too much fat?! Though I'm sure I read the more fat the better? Right, Atkins website, off to read you again, to touch up on ketosis skills...

    If you look on to mfp on the Internet you can change your goal percentages, I find it a lot easier to keep track.

    Hi and welcome back to atkins. I wouldn't worry too much about the amount of fat you are eating, when you get into ketosis you will probably find you won't eat as much as your appetite will reduce. Good luck.

    Good morning and welcome! I enjoyed reading your intro and look even more forward to reading your diary on here. The bp coffee will do you good as it has coconut oil in, depending on how much coconut you can stand in one go apparently build up to 4 tbs per day, have 1 with each meal or 2 in your bp coffee and co is used to rid the stomach of candida that is why people who suffer it feel nauseous when taking the co because its the candida dying off. Good luck!
