    Hi,
    I'm looking for some pals to join me on my attempt at Atkins.

    I did it about 7 years ago with incredible success although for some reason it stopped working and since then when I've tried it I've not really lost anything after the first fortnight. But its now about 2 years since I last tried and I'm ready to give it a go again.

    I'm on Day 3 and starting to feel good. It would help greatly if I could have some Atkins pals!

    Love Broxi x

    Hi sweet like coco, thanks very much for joining me.
    I've about 4 stones to lose - my profiles are no longer accurate and I need to update them.
    I don't know why Atkins stopped working before perhaps my body got wise to it. I lost 4 stones in about 4 months before and the weight just fell off. It was the easiest thing. Then about 1 stone away from goal the weight loss just stopped for no reason. Then when I did diet again I would lose an initial 1/2 stone and then nothing for weeks. I don't know why that was. I've tried over the years with the same results. But I've left it for about 2 years now so I'm hoping my metabolism won't recognise it!
    It was the best and easiest diet when it worked though. I loved it so I'm hoping.
    What about you? How long have you been on it? Do you like it? What are your losses?

    Hi everybody, thanks for the welcome. I'm glad everyone's buddies here. I'm on day four now and it's getting easier. When I'm struggling, I'm just telling myself I could be on Cambridge as I was last year and Atkins feels easy in comparison! How's everyone doing?
