    Just wanted to say hello!

    I have been doing Atkins for 2 weeks now (Induction) and wanted to make it through before joining up in case I fell by the wayside. Your forum has been very helpful and I wanted to say Thanks.

    Am following the New book, I had followed the DANDR a few years ago, but find the little extra veg/salad a Godsend.

    Hope everyone is having a lovely evening :D

    Hi Ditzee, and Jiggly!

    I have been finding Induction Ok, I am really surprised how my insane hunger pangs died within a few days. I did stick to 20gms a day religiously. I had a couple of MiMs and Flax crackers to help with, you know!

    I lost 6 pounds which I am pleased with, thought it may be more but then again my scales are evil!! I mean proper evil, if you move them from one side of the room to the other it shows more than 4 pound difference, lol !

    Thanks for the praise :)

    I started out 13 Stone exactly (according to my Dr) and now by my scales it is 12 st 8 lb. Would like to get back to 10 Stone 7 lbs. Not as low as I have been but that would be ok by me :)

    I must figure out the stats things, lemme go have a looksee. :eek:



    hahahah - found it!! Now can see my stats! *learning learning*

    Welcome to the forum.

    I've been saying that scales are "made by the devil" for years now, they completely are evil things!
