Default 9 years later...I'm back!

I was just browsing the 'Is there anyone else in Ireland?' thread when I found a post from me from 2002! The Irish section of these forums seems to have slowed down in recent years - anyone else out there and still low carbing? 2002-5 I lost 5 stone and maintained the loss for a few years, but I got complacent, it crept back on, and now I have quite a bit to lose again - but the good news is that I've been back on Atkins since March, and it's coming off - this time for life!

Atkins products seem to have vanished from Irish shelves, but that's not a bad thing, in my opinion - better to eat things which are ingredients rather than things with ingredients. I'm living on bacon, eggs, mayo, chicken, beef, lamb, pork, fish, cheese, lettuce, cucumber, peppers, mushrooms, a few tomatoes and spring onions, mostly - with some cream and sour cream from time to time. Also black coffee - but my downfall right now is red wine - can't seem to sop having a glass or 2 (or even 3!) of an evening. We home-brewed 23 litres of the stuff, so it's just sitting there looking at me - and water is NO replacement, believe me. Oh well, only a couple of bottles to go, and then I'll be on the dry for a while until we make the next lot.

So - anyone else still low-carbing in Ireland? Say hi!

Hi there yourself, from Dublin! I just started back on Atkins yesterday, so far so good but I sure wish life itself was a bit less stressed because I resort to the cake tin and the prosecco to drown MY sorrows.

I really belong in the 3 digit club but thought I'd look in to see if anyone was here in the Ireland section. Agree with you totally about the products and I don't miss them either, very expensive and nothing like the range that our American dieters can access. I don't think many here are still doing Atkins, all I hear are the usual scoldings about how it doesn't work and it's bad for you. That's all they know.

I wish you the best of luck getting back on the bandwagon and maybe you'll still check in here from time to time and compare notes. I'm game if you are!

Take care till then. Jan.
