    From Atkins to S&S, saying hi

    Hi everyone,

    After following Atkins for just over a year (on and off) and losing 4 and a half stone, i'm wanting to give a different diet a go as i'm messing around too much on Atkins and need something that will work quicker. I have been eating carbs for the past 2 or 3 days so i'm out of Ketosis which is a bit unfortunate, but will give it a go starting tomorrow on S&S. First time doing S&S for me, but i'm not new to VLCD, i tried Exante a couple of years ago with good success, although i didn't last longer than one month.

    I'm currently around 14stone 8lbs, haven't updated my signature with my gains as it's depressing me. The good thing is that i'm getting on top of things right now with a 5lb gain and not leaving it until it spirals out of control and i find myself at 19 stone again. My BMI is around 35 i think, ultimately i still need to lose a huge 4 stone at least.

    I have just ordered a 1 week trial mix of S&S, it's due to be delivered today, so starting tomorrow. My goal for S&S is to get down to 13 stone in time for my holiday to Spain in April. Should be easily do-able, just over one and a half stone and almost 2 months to do it in.

    So,... "hi"

    Hi and welcome You've done amazingly so far with Atkins. Atkins is hard work so I'm sure you'll do great with S&S but good luck anyway!
    My Minimins diary - http://www.minimins.com/slimming-wor...s-g-mrs-c.html

    Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
    Obstacles are things a person sees when he takes his eyes off of the goal.
    We would accomplish more things if we did not think of them as impossible.



    Lots of inch loss needed to fit in my dress! Still to go...
