    Hello lovelies, I am back from my hols. Hope you've all been well, looks like there's been some good losses while I've been gone! Pats on backs all round.

    Don't really like to say how much I put on while I was away :eek: ... Let's just say that, along with dropping my goal weight by another 10lbs, I have doubled the amount of weight I need to lose before I get to my target now!!! But I don't regret one single moment of it!

    Been back on the wagon since Saturday, just going through that rotten tired, bloaty, bunged up phase of week 1. But this morning I was already 4lbs down so HUGE relief - I was worried it would be like pulling teeth from the off. I'm sure it will slow back down to a plod soon enough, but I'm in this for the long term now. I've even bothered to set a date, my next birthday - not too ambitious I know, but I'm a realist...

    I'm mad busy this week catching up on my backlog so I haven't really had time to come & chat but just thought I'd pop in to say I'm back and, well, hello again! :D

    Thanks for the welcomes! I did have a lovely time, might post up some holiday snaps later if anyone's interested (and if I can figure out how to do it!).

    Hope you have a good hols too, Jot. Where are you going? Is it going to be self-catering? Lots of people here have a lot of very good tips for sticking to the diet whilst you're on hols, if that is what you plan to do.

    Aww, bless you AM. I missed you guys too.

    I actually found I was looking forward to getting back on the low carb wagon towards the end of the hol, Laura. I missed the energy, feeling good about myself/in control, and of course feeling slim!

    hiya, YOU MUST KEEP TRYING
    this happened to me a few years ago after loosing 3.5st, and no matter how i tryed i couldn't get back to atkins and ended up putting all the weight back on. i tryed several times since but i just can't do it again, so now i am going to have surgery.

    EVERY DAY, IN EVERY WAY, I FEEL BETTER AND BETTER!!!
