    Hi all,

    Im an old timer to atkins, it would be presumptuous for me to assume anyone would remember me here but I still recognise some names!

    I previously lost 8 stone on atkins and vlcd but put it all back on during my first pregnancy.

    I set about losing my baby weight with atkins but life got in the way and 18 months later im 5 months pregnant with my second!

    The reason I am posting is because I plan to trawl these boards for recipes and tips etc and start stocking up on freezable things and writing up meals plans so I am more than prepared to get back on it once this one is born, because I will be needing to fit into a wedding dress pretty soon after!

    So hello and I cant wait to get going again x

    Jools Lovely to 'meet' you. I am a long-time MM forumer and did Atkins many moons ago; I came back 'here' two months ago. I love this WOE and feel so much better and leaner and thinner in a way that non-Atkins folk won't understand. Good luck with your pregnancy ... send us plenty of news please :D P x

    Hey jools - welcome back:). Still here although i have stretches of no posting! My (1& only) DD almost 10 but i wish i knew about different woe before i had her as would have brought her up differently!

    Anyhoo - welcome back and i would highly recommend primal as a good preggie option without going too low carb. Oh yes and congrats:D

    I have a large regain to lose. I lost 140 pounds and alas have over the past three difficult years regained 70. I cannot bear this fat body and unhappy frame of mind! So back on the wagon now and 5 pounds lost in my first six days. Give it hell, everyone! LOL x

    Congratulations. You have a great plan to stock your freezer as will certainly have your hands full. I think a classic cb pie is a must. True Atkins comfort food ;0)
