All the best xxx You can do it! Just concentrate on one day at a time and do that one day as well as you can. Taking that approach removes the pressure and the good days outweigh the bad x

That is frightening! I wouldn't have thought your weight was that dangerous but it goes to show you how badly it can affect your health. You've taken the first step now, as someone else has said, just one day at a time will take you there. You might have blips along the way, most of us do, but as long as you keep focussed and never give up you will see your goal. You'll get your health and your life back.

OK take a deep breath and try to relax. I'm sure stress plays a major role in weight loss and I think you need to come down and think about YOU carefully and logically.

Atkins is great but not if you're jumping on the scales looking for miracles and panicking every two minutes when the miracle doesn't happen! You CAN do this but it's not an easy fix especially at the beginning. Getting enough fat and protein into you goes against everything we've learnt is 'good' for us so needs some adjusting to, as does drinking enough water.

Calm down, set yourself mini goals that are realistic, read the book, start the diet and be patient. It will work!!!!!!!!!

Good luck!

I have been through everything you have. I am also a recovered bulimic.

Atkins helps me not have the issues a lot of other diets give me.

This time, even when I have had no choice to step off the wagon, I have not found it hard to get back on. This forum help loads.

Good luck and whatever happens keep coming back here x

Hi & welcome back Triv :D I had blood tests for all those things, hoping something was wrong. It wasn't. One year ago today I had an op for an anal fistula due to IBS damage. My my surgeon told me to stop eating 'healthy' food & withing days following this WOE it stopped!!!!
You may be surprised at the results. This is the best I have felt in over 30 years :D
Good luck x

HI JIM!! Thanks everyone,so nice to see so many doing atkins,i think last year when i did this there were hardly any people on it! low carb is the way to go now :) was hoping id be accepted back on here lol,i know it works and i have seen the results before so now i just need to lose what i want and for the first time ever ill move to the second phase of this lifestyle :) glad to be back,headaches already lmao!! xxx
FUFFS: like you i was bul and everything else thats considered eating disorder!! i think i just went downhill after having Jessica,the shock of seeing my body in such a state after the section really knocked my confidence,hence becoming obsessed with food and weight. ive always liked to look good and it has been such a struggle to come to terms with my body ever since..i know my day will come! your loss is amazing,are you doing induction or something else with it? xx


This is for life
