    Lol! How many times have I said in the last 2 months that Im going to start tomorrow??

    Well started Atkins today as I need food!
    I wish I could have got back in to using packs for food to lose the weight but I fell off the wagon when on LL and getting back 'in the zone' is very hard...hence my brief spell with Exante:))

    Brunch today has been prawns, tuna,boiled egg and cup of lettuce mixed with mayo and a squeeze of lemon juice.

    Dinner will be cheese omlette with cup of lettuce and a little cucumber

    Have got headache already so going to pop couple of paracetamol

    Had some really wonderful/emotional/happy/sad moments on LL and I hope I can stick with losing weight as I dont want to put on all the weight I had lost. Got down to 12st 8lbs when I went on hoilday in october 2010 ( Combination of LL, Exante, low carb ).
    My original starting weight June 2010 was 16st 10lbs...bloody mahoosive and I dont want to get that weighty again....and what a waste of money...(15wks on LL @£70 p/w plus 1 pot of drink mix @ £9 = £1185)....if i put all the weight back on:(((

    So this is the start to getting down to a size 10/12 for summer but hopefully looking a great deal better for the end of April for my big 40!!! eeekkkk!!

    Hey Sorcha,

    I too felt off the wagon having put all my weight back on after LL. I tried to hard to lose weight with the packs but I couldn't get back on the zone. I dare not calculate the money I spent getting slim the first time and the attempts I made last year. :cry:I have started looking a a thinner Rachie, and I have to be honest I looked hot!!! (modesty!!) :eek:

    So dear sorcha I am with you on this journey. I am fed but of looking like a bloated whale/puffa fish and I want the slim Rachie within to explode on the dancefloor when I am on target (think priscilla mixed with saturday night fever!!)

    Thank you for starting a diary. i shall be an avid follower and traveller on this journey.

    Hope you are having a fab morning and look forward to another instalment of your diary:bliss: xx

    Hi sorcha
    I am in the same boat. I will hit the big 40 next year and dont want to be this size then. I have spent alot as well on LT and CD and lost 4st but since my lightest have put on a 1 1/2 stone which is terrible.
    We will succeed with the help of this forum and its fab peeps.

    Had a lovely meal out last night with my DD:)

    Had ballentine of chicken stuffed with mushroom with a cream and wild mushroom sauce, red cabbage, broccoli and leeks. No pots!!
    Probably not too good on the carb front as i also had a small glass of pinot!! ooopps...not good on the first week but did enjoy it a lot....beats food packs any day and ok, I might not get he 4 to 5lb losses i was getting with LL but I am EATING and eating healthy food and hoping for 2-3lb losses a week.

    Going to stick to mainly proteins today as I figured I must have gone over 20g of carbs:) Will be drinking 3 plus litres of water also and taking paracetamol to ease headache:)

    What are you talking about Katie, you're a social butterfly and your losses have been fab. I'm starting to feel I need more of a social life to shift mine!

    Headache is a good sign, those carbs put up a fight on their way out, but it means they're leaving!

    Hi kat1e:D Im having a great weekend so far...hope you are too?

    I feel really great today! After having some seriously bad headaches for the last 4 days, today I woke up feeling like I could take on the world!!! Probably couldn't but did feel like it!:D

    Bought some ketostix while on LL and peed on one this morning and it was light pink! Woop woop, Im producing ketones which is good news as i must be burning F A T!!

    Have stopped myself from stepping on scales as i was a seriel scale hopper when on packs and atkins is soo different for me...I want to lose weight but I also want to eat. My stomach feels a little less bloated...which is good:D

    Im looking forward to tonight as have no stroppy teenagers in the house and my lovely hubby ( well he is now...wouldn't have said that about him a few months back:)) is cooking for me...yumm! I know I shouldn't on induction but im having a couple of vodkas tonight...will drink plenty of water tomorrow tho!!

    Wow I feel good! Took me nearly two weeks to get rid of heaaches when I started LL but on Atkins its only taken 4 days...and my appetite is decreasing.Looking forward to weigh -in on Tues:D
