    Hi everyone and a happy new year to you all.

    I'm glad that the festive season is over and things returning to normal.

    I gained 8lb in the space of a week, from comfort eating... Aside from the swine flu which we've all been struggling with, we had 2 terrifying incidents involving my little boys and A&E departments (one stopped breathing on boxing day and 3 days later, the other chopped part of his finger off in a door frame).

    I'm happy to say that they are both absolutely fine, and today i'm back to work - didn't wanna leave them this morning, but i'm starting to get over it now.

    I glad to be back on the Atkins (day 3 now)- i was only gonna have xmas day off, but it turned into a 7 day carbfest. Unfortunately the house is still full of chocolate. - maybe i'll feed it to the kids for breakfast and tea untill it's gone :17729:

    Wowzers! Glad you're all on the mend now. Not surprised you were comfort eating with all that going on.

    How awful for you Lorna! Bet they're both totally over things now, while you'll NEVER get over those shocks!

    Well done getting back on track after all that trauma. :)

    I was going to ask how you dealt with the question of whether you say you are on atkins (or eating in a certain way). I havent dared admit atkins to my mum but have said we are going on a bit of a diet after xmas. Really dont want to get in an argument but will want to be served appro food when we go round (mum is an amzing cook!)
