    Welcome and congrats on getting through your first week. I notice from your profile that you are 6lbs down from your starting weight... was that all in your first week? If so, that's awesome! Well done! :)

    Well I have done Atkins before but never managed to stick 100% with it even in induction (think cheeky glass of wine or 4 at the weekends:rolleyes:) But I did do the 1st week without any cheating and it was even my B'day over the w/end.

    Yes I managed to lose 6.2 pounds last week which I'm thrilled about - I did feel a bit rubbish last week a few headaches and lethargy but today I feel really good and have energy again xxxxxxx

    I know the 1st week was tough - the headaches at the end of the day were pants and I got an upset stomach on the 3rd and 4th day - it does pass - feel fine this week although the scales dont seem to moving at all this week for me v.frustrating xxx

    don't worry about the scales honestly,your body will often
    take time to catch up on showing your weight loss,
    as long as you are eating right drinking your water ect
    then you will see changes,watch your clothing begin to feel
    looser,less tight in places that you never thought about,
    small little changes that you don't think about,even shoes
    feeling less tight.less swelling in fingers,or you could if you
    felt like it,get a measurer(SP) and keep a track on the inches
    as they disappear,personally i like the clothes one,as the scales
    an me aren't friends.
