Hi new here!!
Hey everyone just thought I'd introduce myself!! I started atkins last tuesday. I weighed in today and have lost 4lb. I don't have a massive amount to lose so not sure what my weight loss will be like weekly. I usually live on carbs and sugars so this is a massive change for me. I started at about 153lbs and I'm 5ft 3. Ideally want down to about 133lbs. Anyone else similar? How r u all finding it xx
I'm around the same weight now having lost about 4 stone on Atkins last year. I'm in maintenance mode temporarily but you can still expect a 1 - 2lb weekly loss after the first week - though it's common to stall in the 2nd or 3rd week.
Well done on your 4lb so far!
Aw thanks!! I've realised a couple of errors I've been making so getting that sorted!! Well done on all your loss xxx
4lbs is a great start, well done :)
Aw thank you. Was doing so well but had a blip yesterday and it shouldn't even have happened. I guess I kinda bowed down to peer pressure. So annoyed with myself and won't be happening again going to try even harder now! I think some people don't want to see u lose weight!! Xx
I also started last week and am down 4lbs in 6 days... Well done on your weight loss, it's always such a good feeling! :)
I don't know about you but I find that it's harder whilst at work (we have no where to heat anything up) so am living on cold meat and salad which is starting to become tedious.
Would love to know how you're coping and what your plans are? :)
Oh well done you!! That's a nightmare about your work. I work shifts- early, late and nights. I'm trying to forward plan my meals as that makes me stick to it better. I'll be totally honest. I am a carb and sweet addict. I done so well and then on sat night my boyfriend talked me into having some chips and a burger bun. Worst choice ever. I didn't really want them and tasted them and realised how much I didn't miss them so I'm back on track now. I know I'll have stalled this week tho but that's my fault. Also noticed some errors in my diet that I'm fixing so hoping next week I see a good loss! Xxx
I work shifts too, the nights are the easiest as eat before work, it's the sleep ins that kill me. Start at 1530 right through to 1430 the next day. That's a lot of food i have to plan and take with me! I tend to have a shake and baby bell for breakfast the next part of my shift as no time to cook anything up.
I've been looking at the menu ideas and got a few ideas now

Wow, that's a crazy shift! I've found some thermos food flasks that have a wider rim so are good for soups & curries& stews etc. They keep food warm too if you don't have a microwave.

Hi! Well done on getting back on it. What were your losses like last time xx
Hey! I'm debating starting but I'm trying to get my head around it. I've dabbled in SW/WW before but I really hate carbs..I know that sounds bizarre but I despise pasta and rice, I only eat toast occasionally when it's convenient. So I thought Atkins sounds the best for me but weighing the veg in cups isn't making sense to me! For peppers/onion etc. Do you have a food diary? I'd love to have a look :)
Cups are an American thing. Personally I stick to the list of allowed vegetables and weigh them before using, that way I know how many carbs I'm eating. I use the my fitness pal app to look up foods and plan menus, and it counts my carbs for me.
How's everyone's week been?
Lozzaboo, well done for getting back on it, I'm the same, huge carb fan and i'm addicted to all the naughty things. I'm still finding it hard when I have a sweet craving, so I've been buying those small pot of sugar free jelly and I don't know if anyone is familiar with Pintrest? But they have some amazing ideas and recipes for all things sweet as well as savory!
I've also found that eating last nights leftovers have been a godsend, also little packs of flavoured chicken slices, steak slices, cheestrings etc you can get them pretty cheap if they're on offer. You just need to check the back of the packaging for the carb value. Sainsbury's are doing 3 packs for £6 at the mo and they're so easy to throw onto a ready made salad.
I'm not too keen on these but my mum is doing LC also and she is obsessed with 24 DELI Ham wrapped around British Chedder pieces. You can get them in packs of 3 for £1 and they're easy to grab on the go.
Tonight I'm having homemade burgers (without the bun) wrapped with a lettuce leaf, we've put some mozzarella and roasted pepper inside.
Let me know how you guys are getting on :)
Struggling here. Had very bad carb craving last night so I had bowl porridge with cream and it was like manna to me. Not too bad it has about 20g carbs. Not allowed but I dont mind cos its better than a litre of ben & jerrys which is what i really wanted.
I am finding that I am hungry unless I eat about 1600-1900 cals. Thats way too much as I need to loose 1-2 stone, well 1 def.
