    Good Morning All!

    I have been lurking for a while and thought it was about time that I introduced myself!!

    I started Atkins on Monday having followed a VLCD and WW's over the past 18 months, during that time I have lost 6 stone.

    I have gone from being a complete lazy cow that does nothing but sit on her bum at a desk, then sit on her bum on a train, then sit on her bum in front of the TV to a bit of an exercise nut!! I go kickboxing twice a week, running 3 times a week and do 40 mins of circuit training 4 days a week - all that still weighing over 20 stone!!

    I am going to complete my first 10K run next week and am very excited but a bit terrified too - I figure that's healthy though!!

    Having followed a VLCD in the past I knew how good it felt to be in Ketosis, but I never expected it to happen so fast on Atkins!! The first 3 days I felt a bit groggy with the headaches (giving up my beloved Diet Coke gives me the biggest withdrawls) and the grumbly tum but I have woken up this morning, peed on my stick and i'm in Ketosis already and feeling full of beans!!! :D

    Thank you SO much to Jim for his "So you're thinking of starting Atkins .." thread I have ALL the books (I get a little bit OCD about dieting) but your thread made SO much more sense of it all!

    Also, I know I shouldn't have sneaked but i've lost 6lbs this morning!! wow!!

    1 1/2 litres of water down already!!

    :D :D :D

    You've done so well Alyssa!! And an inspiration! All that exercise? I'm breaking out into a sweat just thinking about it! ;)

    I can never tell when I'm in ketosis so I can't say if I love it or not. I sometimes get a funny metalic taste in my mouth which I assume means I am, but I actually never know?!

    I say "play" tennis, it's more like me hitting it far too hard, which means he has to run all the way across the 3 courts to the otherside to get the ball. He hit's it nicely back and then I do the same again! lol So not really tennis! :D

    We'd be no good playing it together then lol Can you imagine? Although we'd probably lose more lbs due to running across the courts to fetch the ball!

    you will love this diet if you have moved from the other sources.
    I started on Cambridge and gagged my way through a month of it before almost stabbing my eyes out with a blunt instrument.
    And although Diet Coke is not essentially allowed I have had it with a great weight loss in the first week although you can have Coke Zero with guilt free consumption.
