    I would like to say hello to everyone... My name is Vicky and I am hoping to start induction next week after my shop has been done. I was wondering if you all had some tips for a newbie and what helped you to get all your amazing results. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance :)

You are all so lovely here and very experienced with atkins, its nice to see that you give up your time to help new members along their journey too. I will probably have many questions along the way and I have a long way to go so will be a frequent visitor here. Just waiting to get my shop done and then I can start been reading up for a while now so I hope I can do this and get the weight off once and for all :newbie:

    Be sure to join in on the weekly weigh-in/monthly targets thread! I think short term goals really help - also a bit of competition can only be a good thing :)

    Welcome to the most enjoyable 'diet' in the world! We oldtimers think of it as a way of eating, a way of life, and not just a diet.

    Follow the rules and you will be fine. Buy the books too - they are cheap on ebay or Amazon. The more you read up on this, the better and easier it will be for you.

    Have a look at the official site, The Atkins Community. That site tells you everything you could need to know.

    Good luck!

    Thanks again for all the tips and welcome... I am going to have a read of the book again today and make some notes as its getting close to d-day lol. To be honest I can't wait now am motivated and ready to go for it. I bought a measuring tape today as I have heard you can lose inches without losing lbs sometimes, I hope thats not the case as I am a numbers girl always seem happier when I see that scale going down :D

    Hi Welshcupcake:)...and welcome! Im a newbie too...on day 5. Everyone is so friendly here:) Just a tip...make sure you have some paracetamol handy and drink plenty of water...the first few days can make you feel a bit rough...its just carb withdrawl ...but after the first few days you will feel amazing! I feel like that today!!
