    Hi. Just want to say hi and try and get my post count up to sort out my profile.

    I am in Glasgow and have been on Atkins since January. Love it but find it best not to say much about my WOE as it seems to incite heat and venom from even the most sedate characters!

    hello and welcome.
    i don't tend to tell outsiders anymore exactly what plan i'm on,as i can't be asked to explain "no i don't eat bacon all day"i'll probably say,"i'm watching what i eat" i just chat here to people who know.
    :D

    I agree roosnanny - it just isn't worth the hassle. People have their opinions based on hearsay usually, I am living the programme but hey - they know better!

    I always say low carb, people never ask questions then!

    Welcome to the forum :) it's probably the most useful tool you'll have whilst on the diet!

    Hi. Glad you could join us.
    I know what you mean. It's like "Atkins" is a dirty word but say "low carb" and it is just accepted. Strange world isn't it? :rolleyes:

    Hi all! hi to the Weegies!!!
    It is true though - say low carb and you get a totally different reaction. And true - their problem not mine!!!
    This is a very busy forum, there were thousands of new posts when I logged on. No excuses for not being able to get advice on here, eh?
