    I have decided to start a diary for my weightloss journey, partly because it's a good way of keeping track of what I'm doing, and eventually it will be a way of reminding myself where I have come.

    Yesterday was my first day, I have done a very low carb diet before, I can't really call it Atkins as I am not following the stages at this point, but the principles are the same I guess. Lots of protein, veg and gallons of water......and no carbs.

    I weighed yesterday at 16.7 - 231lbs. eeeek :( I am 5'3", and would love to get down to 9 st - 126lbs. A total loss of 105lbs. Before now those figures alone would have put me off, its a mammoth task, there is no way of describing it any different. BUT it can and will be done.

    So here I am waking up on my second day, yesterday was fine...

    Brunch - 2 rashers bacon, 2 sausages, mushrooms sauteed in butter, and 2 poached eggs.

    Dinner - chicken portions with roasted peppers, onions and mushrooms topped with a roasted garlic and chilli yoghurt dressing.

    Snacks - a couple of pickled onions, couple of raspberries

    Water - 3 litres. :D

    Moving onto day two now, woke with a slight headache so a glass of water for me. Now off to decide what to have for breakfast....

    Hi Miss and welcome :)

    Sounds like you're off to a good start. The onions and raspberries are a little high in carbs, but I know you're not following Atkins to the letter. Maybe get some more leafy greens in there?

    Susie :)

    Thanks Susie, I didnt know about the leafy greens until I sat and read through lots of diaries, so I shall definitely get some in today, i love sauteed spinach and dark green cabbage so its not gonna be a big deal to add them.

    My dearly departed grandad used to boil his cabbage, and drink the water years ago, its an acquired taste.....but its a major source of healthy vitamins if anyone wants to try it :)

    Good luck, I can't do that kinda diet, I'd miss my carbs far too much, but I take my hat off to anyone who can.

    aaaaaargh! just venting at the moment, only on day two and I have such major sugar cravings. it feels worse this time, but the good thing is that I know that it will pass.

    Head is aching, feeling weak and dizzy, I just want to sleep, and I have the sugary taste too......thought two days was a bit early to be going into ketosis though? is it? i know this is the worst part but its not good!

    had a good day food wise....

    b - 2 boiled eggs

    l - huge pile of leafy green salad, tuna, and diced cheese

    d - bacon and mushroom omelette topped with cheese served with tomatoes.

    s - low fat yoghurt smoothie made with a small handful of berries.

    w - 1.5 litres so far, gonna drink at least another litre through the evening to try and get rid of this headache :(

    Gosh it does sound like Atkins flu hun - drink lots of water, and something that worked for me was chicken broth made from a low carb stock cube, hot water and some dried herbs.

    Hope you feel better soon!

    lol! thank god for that, i was beginning to feel like a freak haha! with a bit of added pepper its not so bad is it :)

    feeling much much better today, sleep and lots of water seems to have done the trick. I can still feel a little niggly headache lingering but we can deal with that :D

    starting my day with a coffee with cream, feels very naughty :D

    Morning Miss and welcome, I'm pleased I found your diary. When i was younger my mum always kept the water that greens had been boiled in, we drank it with a touch of black pepper, lovely, yum yum. These days i tend to sauté my greens rather than boil them

    The best water to drink is from boiling cabbage, onion, garlic, bacon and potato together! A taste made in heaven! I love your menu for today - the beef sounds yummy! :)
