    Hiya All

    Thought Id say Hi as I have been reading alot of your posts recently in the run up to starting atkins today.

    Ive been trying to loose weight for about 10 years ever since I had my first child. I have to admit to being a yoyo and lacking motivation very quickly.

    At my biggest I was 25 stone in Feb 2003. My recent diet attempt started in Sept 2008 at 21st 7lbs. At first I started with healthy eating and excercise, followed by some Slim Fast...then Weight watchers. Adding all the attempts together I have lost 50lbs since Sept 08 and I now weigh 17st 13lbs. My lowest weight for along time.

    My Mother in law 2b swears by Atkins and is dropping weight like mad. Shes trying to look as good as she can to be mother of the groom. Id really like to loose weight to be a fabulous bride in December 09. Hopefully my body will like this diet..

    It gets difficult to stay motivated when everyone tells you how gr8 you look and look shocked that you say you want to loose more.

    fingers crossed I can stick to Atkins and it works for me :p

    Ok so how odd is it that when your body stops feeling hungry your mind still tells you to eat... Im sat here now ....not hungry at all and yet im thinking about eating... oh well have to find something to do and get over my own mind....
