    Good luck and look forward to the diary posts. I did the same - lost loads on low carb last year then switched and eventually gained.

    Yep I gained it all back over the year plus a couple extra always the way lol.

    Feeling motivated this morning had my cheese and mushroom omelette and downing the water. Actually not really in the mood to eat with this heat it's like a sauna in my flat!

    I know - i was a tea addict! I've swapped to decaf earl grey as my main cuppa and then have approx two "real" teas a day. Frankly it doesn't taste anywhere near as good so now i have less tea and drink more water - result:)

    Hi Athena - good luck!

    I'm the same with caffeine - used to have 4-6 cups a day/diet coke - now down to one cup of tea in the morning :)

    Hi again Cassie. It's tough getting back into it but once you are it's great. I regained two of the ten stones I lost - after maintaining for thirteen years, more or less! Now I am back on the Atkins wagon and at last feeling better x

    ps try this great site:

    fab recipes!
