    Yooo hoooooooo new one here....

    Hiya all,

    I am a lady 'of a certain age" Wife of 40 yrs to a man who eats like a bl**dy horse & doesn't gain weight - admittedly he is very active, Mum to one daughter & Grandma (I was a child bride ) to 2 gorgeous boys & am determined to lose the 2stone I've gained in the last 3 years since being cured of nasty IBS (I retain all the calories of everything I now consume ) I also gave up the evil fags 3 years ago & discovered I have an almost insatiable appetite for all things sweet & chocolately that I never knew I had!

    The time has now come to take action before our next beach holiday in November. I have decided to Atkins low carb as I need to address the sweet tooth & hopefully cutting out all sugar will help break the addiction. Plus of course I love meat,cheese, dairy & veg etc. Big bit of belly of pork is roasting in the oven as I'm typing.

    I know this is the place for great advice & support and hopefully will also make some dieting buddies as well.

    Enjoy the rest of this wet Bank Holiday whatever you're doing.

    Hi Hun another re starter here! Like you I'm 40 something ( just- I'm 50 next month!) mum to a 28 year old and a 4 year old who'll be 5 on my 50 th birthday! I've been messing about between SW and WW since he was born but find I keep going over my syns on SW and slowly sliding into eating low point crap on WW. When I've managed to follow Atkins I remember feeling great then life got in the way! Anyway I've got a family get together next Thurs but am restarting on Friday! Good luck and keep me posted on your progress!

    Hi all, I too am a re-starter. I did Atkins years ago and lost well on it. I met my now-husband after losing the weight, got married - had kids...blah blah...we all know how it goes.

    Well, I've been trying to lose the post wedding and baby weight and now that my youngest is 1 it's about time I did something about it. I started back on Atkins on 31st August '14 and my husband is also following this WOE, just a lot less strictly as he only weighs 11.5st.

    I have lost 18lbs since starting and although this week has been a struggle (Last week of the month before payday!) I have been takin lower carb options to ensure I don't gain (or not too much anyway!) Back on properly from Tuesday!

    How are all you lovelies getting on? x
