    hi everyone :wavey:

    well i done Lipotrim trim for a bit and got from 13st to 11and half, but my chemist doesnt do it any more and it too expensive to get from ebay so as of tomorrow i am starting atkins. Been off Lt for a few weeks now and the fluid retention is killing me i look like a bloated whale (not a pretty sight at all)

    I did atkins a few years back so know what to expect.

    I have looked out all my reciepes book and want to actually stick to this long term, i have food intolernces anywayz so i should be eating bread ans cakes n stuff!!!

    Just wanted to say hi and hope you can help me on my journey to a healthier/slimmer body in time for my sis wedding at the begining of August ;)

    So how long have you all been lo carbing and how much have you lost and got left to target....( i being nosey :) )

    hi hun,

    we seem to be heading down the same path, my sis wedding also in august, and also I have insulin resistance so refinded carbs are a huge no no for me! Re-read your atkins books stock your fridge with tasty protein snacks, sero bars from www.avidlite.co.uk are only 1.5 net g for whole bar and are brilliant as a breakfast bar or snack.

    Good luck hun, shout out and thee are lots of friendly people here to help out.

    sue xx

    Hi!!

    About to start Atkins myself next week, just planning my shopping list now!! I did LL last year and lost about 8 stone, regained 3 then lost another 1 again on CD. Struggling too much now on SS so thought Atkins might be the way to go!

    Just had a tip from Sun re the Sero bars, so have ordered two boxes of them from Avidlite Low Carb Products. Lets hope they're good!!!

    Keep in touch & good luck!

    well today i day1 for me, so kinda excited and nervous had a farewell dinner last night ( not that bad beef wellington, sweetcorn n wedges!) my OH has decided to give it a go with me, think he still just wants his dinners made for him LOL x i working late tonight so gonna cut down on cals and food and up water.... I off for the next few days so that should be easier.

    getting there i totally understand with the money on CD and LT, can be expensive, but remember atkins can be too!, if you gonna go for we will give you as much support as we can keep you on the right path ha ha but ye you will lose with it but will take a bit of getting used to...

    now.... roll on ketosis, Im waiting for you all prepared with my listerine strips, mouth wash and ketosis sticks. Hopefully by thurs i'll be in ketosis.

    PS is anyone doing any exercise? i am starting some as just worked out its 4weeks til my sis hen weekend and 6 weeks til wedding, i gotta tone up that wobbly belly, bum and thighs of mine else ill be giggling down the isle behind her LOL x x x
