    Welcome to your very own diary Slaj :)

    This is the place to ask questions, moan, be happy, record your menus and so on - so don't hold back, we're a lovely lot but quite nosy, and we easily hijack each other's diaries - consider it a badge of honour :D

    Good morning all, very excited, just made my first mims, enjoying it sliced, buttered with slices of emmental cheese. Not bad for first attempt! Have a good day everyone :)

    Mims are great, and there's loads of variations - but try not to have one every day until you're further along if you can :)

    Hi Slaj, we did have a member who was a veggie, she's not posted for a while though. See if you can find a thread by girlygirl.

    Thanks jim will do, just enjoyed mushrooms, scrambled eggs and 2 quorn bacon rashers fried in olive oil, tea without milk. Hope the quorn bacon is ok, blooming tasty though!
    Perhaps I should introduce myself, I am Sandra , 47 year old married with a son who is turning 16 next week( help!) and 13 yr old daughter, living in the Midlands. I am a seasoned dieter who is tired of losing the same 4-5 pounds! Am enjoying the food on Atkins still a bit nervous about high fat food as both parents died of heart attacks in their 60's. Loving the support and friendliness on this site. Thanks everyone, x

    Hi Sandra,

    I live in the midlands as well, Sutton Coldfield just outside Birmingham. I know how you feel about heart attacks and stuff but my Dr is convinced I'm at less risk than I was before Atkins, mainly because of the vastly improved Blood test results and also because of the weight I've lost.
