Starting Atkin on MONDAY! and looking forward to it! I have been reading some of your posts for inspiration and its all looking good! A big well done to all the people on this forum that are doing great!! WOOP! Bit about me! I have done atkins before a few times.. once after uni when i had piled on a million stones.. i managed to lose 3 stone back in 2002. Then after i had my lil baby boy in 2008 but only managed to lose 1 stone then it just stuck.. after that i moved to Weight watchers.... which didnt work at first but then i did lose some VERY SLOWLY... then Doc put me on xenical tablets.. and although i didnt suffer many side effects.. they didnt seem to work for me weather i did them alongside WW or not. SO im back to atkins... full circle! I hope to shift 2.5 stone to take me to around the 10 stone mark. This is still too much for my height but i will be happy with that weight and size 12 clothes! I preffer curves to being skinny! So please wish me luck and i will start my diary and posting propperly on monday! I hope you can help me out as i dont think i did atkins propperly in 2008 and need some help with carb counting! hope to catch up with you soon s xx ps. WI this morning was 12.9 Althought i have been 12.6 for a while.. i was at a wedding last week which was a 4 day affair and had ALOT of indian food! Im over that now.. not gona mope just gona make some changes and get on with it!!
