Hi there - new person on board

I just thought I would introduce myself. I'm Leese, and I started the Akins diet on Monday. Just searched an Atkins forum as I'm sure I could learn a few things while on the diet.
I'm looking to lose at least a stone and a half. I've tried to do diets before and never stuck to them. Although I did build myself up to start on the Atkins (I was a little dubious at first because I understood you only ate fatty stuff, but I bought myself 3 books on Atkins and now understand how it all works!), so far so good. Another issue for me was alcohol, which I think has definately contributed to my weight gain over the last few years. Getting home from work and settling down with a couple of glasses of wine, then drinking at the weekend has obvopisly caught up with me, so as well as starting the Atkins, I have promised myself to lay off the alcohol for 3 months, see how I'm doing with the weight loss, then see where my plan takes me.
Anyway, just a little bit about me, I shall look forward to getting to know some of you along the way.
Leese :)

Hi leese, welcome love. I hope it works for you, it does for most of us. :)
welcome! sounds like you have a plan anyway, all the best for your first week. only done 3 weeks myself and i love it!
Welcome Leese! I am also sure your first week will shock you! x
Hi and welcome. Drink has always been an issue for me! in fact even last week every night it was - but had lost a lb at WI yesterday still. going to be good this week though.
I must confess I had a couple of glasses of champagne yesterday for valentines day, feel guilty as hell today though!! But I did get through Friday and Saturday night without having a drink which is usually the challenge for me, so feeling very positive with the no drinking thing! I did weigh myself yesterday too and I've lost 4lb. Which at first I thought wasn't very good, but hubby pointed out to me to see it as 2 bags of sugar, so with that view I feel very motivated. I'm also going to add in some cv training at the gym, currently only doing resistance.
