Morning all

Feeling the need to cheer myself and remind self of how life has improved so much since I discovered Atkins in January 2011. Thought it might also be useful for those just starting the journey to see how well Atkins works - both to lose weight but also maintain that loss.

So here we go.

1. My favourite before and after as I truly believed that they was no way on earth I would ever fit in this dress again - even when I first lost weight I thought it must have shrunk and tried to give it to the friend borrowing but (luckily!) she refused! Then the body shape just gradually changed until it fit, no problem:D



2. The journey - which was a surprise the whole way along as if you look at my initial diary entries I just wanted to lose down to 90kg to get back to a pre baby normal (which was still wildly overweight)!

Thanks Busy - I've found that my determination/will power is directly proportional to not being hungry so that's always my key focus.

These are fab, you look brilliant in that dress! Thanks for sharing x
Thanks - bought the dress in 1999 when I was an expat and fairly flush:)

Fabulous photos Katie, love the dress (and it looks so much nicer on you!) :D
Lol - obviously made for me:)

Well done Katie, you look absolutely stunning and you can't half see the transformation! You go girl!
Thanks - it is nice seeing the side by side. I loved the black dress because it fit at the time but my god I was enormous! Think I tended to avoid looking.

WOW, I am impressed. Well done! And I love the dress :p
Thanks - just need more evening black tie dos to wear it to!

Just mooching about the Atkins and low carb boards. Your pics are fab.

I lost three stone a few years ago following induction and then pig to twig.

Now I'm back to it ;-)

Slightly more relaxed approach to Atkins style and a very funny book.
