    Slim for Summer ball! Giving the Atkins a chance...

    Heyy - newbie here

    Sorry really took a while to figure out this website - this post may be under a number of different threads/blogs/posts (i'm awful with technology!)
    Anyway...
    I NEED to shred some of this xmas weight (and of course the weight i accumulated in the months before that) as I reached 11 stone 6! I am 5 ft 2 and, knowing my body, this is just a crazy weight for me and sends my BMI into nearly 30 (obese) - not the one for a 20 year old girl!

    Anyway I have done 1 week of the atkins induction (with one cheat day when i went out and had vodkas) and lost 6.5lb!!! Couldn't believe it! I've never heard of a diet letting you lose so much weight before! Already hit my 1st goal of getting in the 10 stones and am hoping next Monday i can hit 10 stone 10 which would be 3.5 lbs this week. Normally i would be wary of setting such a high target but as of last weeks success I am going to risk it and i just will definitely NOT cheat this week.

    Its the 1st time I've done this type of diet and so I'm totally open to tips and - as always - encouragement! I think this kind of diet often gives people tight lips and judgey "that's not healthy" expressions so I really don't get a lot of support round here. Will keep updating every weight loss - assuming anyone wants to read my schenangans - and will try to give advice on things i found useful/not useful as the weeks go on. Anyway 1 week down, 13 to go...10 st 10 here i come!

    Hi and welcome
    Well done on your first week loss - that's great! Unfortunately it will slow down now as that was mostly water - but dont get despondent. Atkins works really well and you will lose - it just wont be linear!

    If you haven't already then look at the stickies thinking of starting atkins and cheating on atkins. Good news is that enjoying food, cooking and eating plenty is what it's all about. Bad news is cheating can completely derail you (might get away with booze; very unlikely to get away with carbs or sugar )

    Good luck

    Hi Amanda and welcome

    Well done on week one, you are off to a great start - but as Katie says, have a good read of the stickies (the threads on the previous page) - there's lots of advice there on starting Atkins, shopping tips and recipes.

    How much milk are you allowed on Atkins? I live for my coffees and teas but have been wary of them as I'm unsure as to the rules? xxx

    No milk! Use double cream instead (not so great in tea though!!)

    And thanks Sam Am trying my best!
    Couldn't help but sneak peak at the scales and I'm defo losing slower this week - only half a lb down in 3 days *sigh* but never mind! Half an lb is half an lb plus its SO much easier this week than last - and have got another 12 weeks to go after this week to lose the 20 lbs I set myself (but honestly I'd be chuffed with 12lbs which is a pound a week which is roughly the current pace) so no worries, I'll keep chipping away. Weigh in Monday morning...I'm totally impatient for it!

    arghh today's been tough! Been good in terms of what I ate but think I've had about 300000 calories today! Thinking i really want to go out and have a couple of drinks - any advice on what to drink? I have weigh in on Monday so a good couple of days to recover...will anything not take me out of ketosis?
