    Hi everyone! My name's Claire *waves*

    I came accross this website yesterday at work - obviously I was working hard!

    I started the Atkins diet on the 27th of July, and I've lost about 11lbs so far, had a slip up the other weekend when I had an indian takeaway with rice and garlic naan...! :eek:

    Been sticking to the diet pretty well apart from that. A bit disheartened because I lost about 9lbs in the first week, and I've come to some sort of standstill at the moment. Been the same weight for a couple of weeks now :cry:

    I'm guessing I dont drink enough water, and drink too much coke zero and tea and coffee (yes, all full caffeine). I know I shouldn't but I cant help myself. I'm sticking to phase 1 until i've lost another 14lbs, what do you think?

    I also have my moments where I don't know what to eat. Feel like all I can have is eggs, meat! Yes, I know thats a lie, but sometimes I have absolutely no inspiration at all.

    I think I'm just struggling with the fact that, if I make something with sauce, I really want to have potato's or rice with it.

    Discovered mashed cauliflower the other week there, which i LOVE. But I'm needing a hand blender - my actual blender doesnt really work very well with it.

    Payday for me will be a hand blender and a coffee grinder! The mim's recipes are making me drool....lol!

    Well, thats my excitement I think. Bought a slow cooker yesterday, so tomorrow's dinner will be made in that, once i've found some inspiration!

    Anyway, I hope to find great motivation on this website - I don't want to give in! Got a few stone's to lose! I want to be skinny for once in my life :D
