    Hi everyone, I found this site a few days ago and love it, everyone is so friendly and helpful. I started Atkins today but have decided to do ww instead, a friend of mine persuaded me to as she lost lots of weight following this plan. I will weigh in every Thursday morning....would welcome any advice and tips :)

    i REALLY love the science of atkins, because scientifically it works hands down better than any other diet, but realistically who can not eat carbs and fruit and vegetables and not feel stodgy and run down.

    Morning all, thought I would write a little about myself so you have an idea why I'm here. I celebrated my 50th birthday last November, and although i was at my all time heaviest i had a wonderful time. I have four children, three are older and from an earlier marriage (got married young 19yrs!, thought i knew best at the time) and a young daughter of 10yrs, Have been with my partner 12yrs. Since the age of 16 I have felt very weight consious, when i look back at photos i don't know why! I have spent most of my life on some sort of diet, a few years ago i sprained my ankle quite badly (my fault got very drunk one new years eve and tripped over a bit of carpet..lol) that was the start of the major weight gain as i wasn't mobile for 6 months! This also led to back problems,I also gave up smoking last year and put on another stone!! So here I am at just over 18st, I still can't believe I am this heavy! My health has started to suffer, and i really really really need to lose this weight!!! So glad i found this site as i dont have any support as such..sorry if i have gone on a bit(tend to get carried away) will leave you all now, off to make a bowl of porridge...have a good day all, stay strong xx

    hi all just thought id pitch in on this one because i started my ww challenge less than a month ago n its going really well so far! have lost each week so am vv excited :) but still a long way to go.

    ive been having egg (boiled or poached) with toast n then a gigantic salad or ready meal for dinner n then whatever points ive got left for tea. also eating low cal crisps -- quavers/french fries n clementines!

    any advice would be great because my losing streak cant last forever lol
