    Hi everyone. Been looking for a diet plan that would get me interested and excited and think i might have found it. Bit about me- i'm 51 married with 3 grown up kids(most of the time anyway)2 granddaughters and a new baby grandson. Been halfheartedly dieting for as long as i can remember and enoughs enough. Spent too many years sat at home not wanting to socialise and mix with people cos i've got no confidence. Going on holiday 7 weeks today so time to crack on. Been reading that keeping a diary really helps so here goes. Figure even if no one else reads it it will help me keep on the straight and narrow but would really welcome any help, support and advice x

    Hi Lin and welcome. Anything you want to know please feel free to ask. It's usually a bit quiet here at the weekends but it takes off weekdays.

    Thank you all for the welcome. What a nice bunch you are!! Well it's day 2 and had a cheeky peep at the scales.Yay!! Know it doesn't mean anything but it's spurred me on. Shopping for the book today so i can get the supplies in and try some of the recipes. Think i'll be on here a lot for advice and support as everyone i've told says i'm stupid for doing this. I'm gonna prove em wrong!!

    Hi Lin, great to have you with us. This is where you eat yourself thin. :D
    The mushroom soup, is it homemade or from a tin? Soups can be quite carby I've found.

    Hi Leanne. It's a homemade one from a recipe on here. Not had it yet so thought it was better to check first x

    Morning all. DAY 3 and still loving it but think i overdid the cream so gonna be stricter and stick to meat fish and veg today. Think i got bit carried away with the novelty of being able to have it on a diet. Found out i'll be having an operation in August so want to lose as much as i can before then, but my first goal is for my hols in 7 weeks. Want to feel comfy not be walking round covered up,sweating with swollen feet and my shorts stuck up my bum. Not a good look!!!:flirt2:

    Your meal choices sound good Lin but why not put everything on here and we can keep an eye on what you're having?

    Ahhh, sounds as if you have Atkins flu. Well done! I know it feels rough now but it means you are doing the right things.

    Woo hoo. Not been half as bad as i thought it would up to now. Not told many people cos they all had a horror story to tell me. Just shows you need to try things for yourself. Thanks

    How's it going?
    I don't tell people I'm on Atkins, I say low carbing. As soon as you say Atkins they throw their hands up in horror.
