Just plain crazy!

Well thats it, week two is nearly done and I think I am finally getting to grips with being allowed to eat all I had thought I couldnt. It feels so strange to stuff my face with eggs and meat and not worry but I know its working, I already feel so much lighter on my feet and more energetic. I am even thinking I can quit smoking on this diet with no weight gain. This forum is great for tips and advice and I know if I come across problems I can ask for some guidance. Cheers guys!

We're at about the same stage Jaxy - I'm at the end of week two and just started a diary too. It's great isn't it??! My plan is also to quit smoking (again, and for good). Here's to week 3 :D

Great news Jaxy - really pleased you're enjoying it!
Oh dear I think I am getting ill. Last night I developed a painful sorethroat :( I cant understand it as I never really get sick. Do we think its atkins? I am taking a multivitamin daily and having loads more veg than I did before, but I do miss my fruit and im wondering if this has something to do with it. I am also wondering what throat sweets I can have if any because its very sore!
salt and water maybe? are we allowed salt??? hang on in there :)
Im pretty sure I am drinking loads. I work in a shop with aircon on all day and have had to do lots of extra shifts lately (actually I cant remeber when my last day off was and I often work 14 hour shifts). The aircon really dries my throat so I am always guzzling water. Actually maybe it is the aircon..... I dont have any other cold symptoms yet.

You can do it on the quitting smoking front Jaxy. And never fear, you have a catty to look after you while you're poorly :)
Wow well done. I had quit for ages a while back but moved house and transferred jobs and for some reason started again! Foolish I know! I think as im feeling a bit under the weather already I may quit right now, its only irritating my throat. Here comes ratty jackie lol!

Hi Jackie and welcome love, I'd plump for the air con my self, it tends to give me a sore throat as well
A little update.... The cold has nearly gone, my energy levels are up, I am still working far too many hours, and I gave up on quitting smoking (only for the time being). I only lost a little weight last week but with how I was feeling I was surprised I even manged that! I cant say enough how glad I am to be on atkins its the best way of eating ever!

Great news on the energy etc.

And i think you're right to focus on one thing at a time - get Atkins WOE into a good routine and then you will be in a much better frame of mind to think about giving up :)
My food today:
Boiled eggs,
Mattesons sausage and cheese as snacks,
Bacon and spinach salad for lunch,
Fish broc and cauli for dinner.
Quick and easy and great for work.
