By my mum!!:nono: She thinks I'll get ill doing atkins and my kidneys will fail:eek: haha how dramatic!! She was ok at first when I said I was doing low carb and was losing weight she was really happy for me but then I mentioned the word atkins and she was like WHAT!! get off that straight away its dangerous!!

Oh dear I have been told lol...does anyone else have family that have reacted like this? I told her I would start eating fruit from next week and she was abit better!!:rolleyes:

Its amazing isn't it that 'low carbing' is fine yet Atkins isn't!! I'd love to know the difference between the two!
Its so weird! just coz I'm not eating much fruit an veg. but to be honest I never touched it before!! my diet was much worse it just had aload of bad carbs thrown in aswell! haha

Ive given up telling people im on the atkins now i just say i watch what i eat! Well im not telling porkies (no pun intended). My mum and Mark are very supportive so much so Mark now makes me cheeseburger pie coz he loves it and ive lent my mum my atkins and NI books today. Its funny as i was the same size as her only a few weeks ago and now my slender figure (im my dreams) has convinced her that it is good. Just you wiat, I'll be regretting it when she asks me for the forum address and joins us here!

Well we wont judge on weight or clothes size, and know how hard we have all tried to shift the weight. We are all here for the support everyone needs and totally understand. A new family that we certainly dont need to hide it from, not any of us. xx
