Hi everybody, restarted atkins today, had been going great on it, got from 101 kg to 90kg and am 91kg today. found out about this site from my daughter "Mary Sue"... would never have gotten the first 20kg off without her! Feeling low today and dying for a feed of carbohydrate laden junk food..help!

Hi jess, and welcome to the site. Hang in there, eat some bacon or something fatty.

Vicky, I don't think Jess is saying she came off Atkins.

Oh and Jess, 10KG is good that near enough 20lbs in my book. well done.

Hi everybody. Thank you for replying. I fell into the trap of thinking I could have just a little" of stuff I was craving.Having stayed in Ketosis from May until August, pure simple stupidity on my part. Today going ok so far so good, but far from easy...Flippin shop with all its treats is far too close. Determined to stick it out though...Really want to be able to run and play with my grandchildren and the dogs'...you are all an inspiration. Hope your willpower rubs off on me.



Really like these little marker thingys', I ve just stolen the idea off other members posts'...think it will motivate me to keep it up.....I hope !!!!!!

I find the best thing is as Linzi says just to eat your way back into ketosis with lots of proteins,those cravings will soon disappear then.
Good luck.

Hi Jess - you'll get loads of support here, everyone's so helpful. I think it's sweet that you're both on the same board.
As everyone else says, keep snacking on good stuff for the first couple of days, I like slices of chicken or ham or even a few brazil nuts (make sure to count carbs though) and, as the name says, water works!

Been bad gave into temptation. Was too ashamed and embarrased to log in....only thing going for me is my honesty. Have started again today. Going to stay out of the house and out of the kitchen until the next 48 hours pass. If I can just get through these hours..I ll make it. Talk about deja vu. Thanks everyone for commenting
