    Hi all,
    Am new to atkins and would really appreciate it if you nice people could give me some tips please.
    i start my diet tomorrow and i have a lot to lose, about 30-35kgs :cry::cry::cry:
    am desperate to lose weight and i have tried so many diets before and could never lose more than a stone.
    but this time am more determined than ever to lose the weight as am too heavy (100.4kg) for my 5"1 height and its starting to affect my health, :cry::cry::cry:
    my asthma has got worst, cant walk more than a few yards as it makes me so breathless, and all my clothes are way too tight making me a size 20-22!!

    any tips would be greatly appreciated.
    many thanks.
    good luck to all.
    ;);)

    Hi V and welcome, you could start reading all the stickies at the top, that will help, and then start a diary thread where you can ask questions and stuff.

    Its a bit terrifying isnt it when the clothes you have are getting tight and the thought of having to go up a size.

    Good luck, you'll be able to lose more than a stone this time, honest.

    Hi V

    I'm in a very similar position. I am just coming to the end of week 2 and i now weigh 219 lbs. I lost 6 lbs in my first week which i was over the moon with. Have you bought the book, i found it was my bible for the first few days! I also keep a food diary with me so i can track EVERYTHING!

    I used the '72 version V, got it a a car boot sale as I recall. It was the original version of Atkins and was a lot stricter about many things. It's also the only one he actually wrote.
