    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

    Several of us have quit smoking. I did it eight months-ish ago. I wish I had been doing Atkins then!
    I do love this lifestyle and I love the people on here. Never have I found such a lovely bunch of people all ready to help whatever the problem. :)

    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!

    Just ask at your pharmacy for sugar free throat lozenges. They will be able to help you out.
    Are you drinking enough water?

    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.

    Yes, could be the aircon or could be that your body is telling you to rest.
    I hope it gets better soon. Keep guzzling the water.

    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 :)

    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 :)
