    Hi my name is Vikki, I am 34 years old and married with 4 children, all girls, 3 of them teenagers god help me lol!!

    I am in my second year at uni doing my social work degree and I work part time in a childrens home.

    I have been seriously trying to lose weight for about a year. I have lost 2 1/2 stone on WW and then stalled and I was always starving! I read about Atkins, bought the book and am determined to lose the rest this way. I have lost 8lb so far, I am in my third week and am stalling, so I have been advised to start a journal to see if it helps.

    I have cut out the Atkins bars this week to see if this will help me un-stall!

    Thank you for reading!

    Hi Vikki. Hope it's going well for you. Well done on your loss so far. First week for me too and apart from yesterday i've been really good. Had great support from the guys on this forum, They've been my lifeline. Good luck for the Bank holiday weekend x

    Hi Vikki and welcome

    Why not post your menus here and we can see how you're doing? Everyone is very friendly and non critical, and we all have lots of stories about what stalls for some and not for others :)

    If you stall just try going completely green and clean for a week or two. That often kick starts things.

    Yeah I've been thinking about doing that, I just don't know how I'd cope with no cheese or creamer mims lol xx ive got until Monday for my weigh in to see if not having the Atkins bars will kick start me off. If not I'll maybe cut the cheese next week?

    Yeah, I was really good! I am trying to eat better now today I have had a little ham and cucumber for breakfast and I have just had a lovely tuna salad with a little Mayo and onion.

    Gonna have steak and mushrooms and lettuce for tea. It's hard not having anything sweet! I may have a little sugar free jelly or a choc mim and cream tonight as a treat!

    Hi not too bad thanks Jim! I am sticking with the clean and green and it's my next weigh in on thursday morning, so we will see if it has managed to unstall me fingers crossed.

    This morning I have had a mushroom omelette and a prawn salad with a little Mayo going to have chicken and purple sprouting broccoli!!! For tea,yummy lol

    Got some sugar free jelly in the fridge in case of an emergency and pork scratchings on standby too!

    Wish me luck lol I may need it! Been to the gym this morning, but I need to get a LOT more water down me, that is a constant struggle I'm afraid!
