    Hello all the old faces, and greetings to the new..
    As the title says, I am back on Atkins, having gone awol 3 months ago. I let things slip and pound by pound, my weight-loss is very much back on (plus a few unwelcome lodgers..). Started college last week (Access to Nursing) and I felt so heavy and uncomfortable, it's like being the heavy kid in school all over again. I've also noticed that my asthma is terrible at the moment and I am pretty sure that it's weight related - if weight is affecting both my confidence AND my health, then it's time I give myself a kick up the arse and lose the weight for good..
    So, armed with a fridge full of protein, more PMA than I have ever had, and a desire to achieve - I'm back and not going anywhere this time! :D

    Hi Gemsie - you sound really determined, and better still, you've done it before! Good luck with Atkins. :)

    I'm new here, and low-carbing to maintain.
