    Hi Hayley and a big welcome :)

    I have a lot to lose too hun so don't be afraid to ask all the questions you can think of, and post your menus so we can keep an eye on what you're having. Everyone's lovely and very helpful :)

    I had a good loss in the first few months - about 2 1/2 stone - but some has crept back on because I've been naughty and had major carb&wine-fests - but am back in focus now.

    All the best

    Susie

    Atkins is pretty adaptable - but even if you fall off the wagon, just climb back on. The weight didn't go on overnight and won't come off overnight - although it will come over much quicker, especially if you stick to clean and green meals, and have lots of water :)

    BTW I found some Knorr liquid chicken stock in boiling water to help with the Atkins flu, no idea why :)
