    Hi I'm Vicky and I'm really pleased to see how friendly this site is :) I have about 3 stone to lose . Does anyone know how long that might take ??

    Only hard thing I find is my fear of fat ; can't bring myself to eat pork scratching lol or much cheese... Too many years on other diets does this to you x

    Anyway stay strong we can do it:) it's our year !

    Welcome hun, and good luck! You will enjoy this way of eating. Fat is an important part of Atkins but I do understand your reluctance lol.

    Welcome Victoria. It is very friendly here and there's always support when you need it, so get comfy. I don't know how long the weightloss will take, but this seems to be a plan for life, so I hope you've got the book to see you through the different phases. Mine is so well used but I still need advice and support from people on here. They really are very nice :)

    Welcome and good luck:)

    Keep trying on the fat - i really struggled to get my head round it initially- but it's a really important part of managing both your appetite and weight loss! After 4 months i now shudder when i see sugary food or piles of bread but rejoice in cream, cheese, etc - life is good ;)
