    Can I just say how helpfull I am finding this forum! Having done the cd diet successfully before and experienced the benefits of ketosis I initially thought I would go back on it 5 weeks ago. However I ended up doing a combination of cd and atkins because I don't like being seen to not eat around my kids! Over the 5 weeks I have started to understand the principles of atkins much more ( mostly due to these pages!) and I am now finding I have a tenuous but growing confidence in the diet. I find I only have occasional shakes now. I am really enjoying the food, feeling good and loosing weight at a resonable speed! It's all good and just goes to show you don't have to give up food. I swear this diet can't be as unhealthy as some would suggest as I feel so so well. I always felt bloated and had so many cravings whilst eating carbs!!! Thanks guys for all your valuable information xxx

    well done Chell! I do find I want to"scale jump" daily, but I am trying to be disciplined, and being back on nights this week, means I can't weigh first thing in the morning, due to body clock being out of sync, so am hoping for a big visit from the whoosh fairy next Sunday.

    Keep focussed, onwards and downwards!

    Can I just say how impressed I still am by the way you guys all support each other. I have taken a sneaky peak through some of the other forums, and I know I am biast, but I think we got the best!! Big up the atkins crew!!

    Anyway ..... As for me? I feel like I've had a right rough few days. Full of self doubt on all sorts of levels, and the day I felt really unwell threw me big time. Since Thursday I have stuck to my plan. The scales are not coming out untill Tuesday, if I feel weak I add a few carbs but try to stay under 35 and I am really trying to listen to my body and strike the right balance. I love this diet and I am enjoying the cooking/eating and I see it as a long term plan rather than a quick fix, but I want to feel really well again and shake the low feeling that has hit me this week.

    On reflection, I have stuck with it and carried on despite some real tough moments this week. I just really really hope I see some result on the scales on Tuesday cos I worried how I will feel about things if I lose nothing or put on ....... Fingers crossed. X
