firstly welcome.
30lbs before jan? thats what 8-9 weeks? do-able very very do-able i'm down 42lb in 9 weeks. but i did have a fair bit to lose. if you have never done atkins before be prepared to ride out the first week you may feel awful but keep at it after the first week you'll start feeling better each day until you feel ontop of the world. secondly get a decent recipie website, where possible cook most of your food from scratch. if you cook it you know whats in it! i make my own burgers and mustard sauce. cheese sauce is good spread on lots of leafy green veg.

there are times when i gets a little boring, at times i've really been bored and craved all sorts of things but i just go to the fridge and get out the cheddar cheese cut off a big lump dunk it in some full fat mayo and munch it all!

Arielle!!

First question, have you read Dr. Atkins New Diet Revolution? Reading the book before beginning the program is the key to success. Understanding how & why this way of life works is essential for success. In a nutshell. Induction is 20 carbs per day from foods ONLY on the acceptable foods list:
http://www.atkins.com/articles/atkin...eptable-foods/
12-15 of your 20 carbs for the day should be coming from veggies & salads. Be sure to drink plently of water and get some exercise. 30 lbs by Jan isn't impossible if you do this correctly

All the best to you!!!

Kim

Hiya & Welcome arielle09! I remember gaining a LOT of weight in junior high & taking it off on a high protein diet rather quickly between 8th & 9th grade - waaaay back in the 70's! Wishing now that I would have stuck with the same principles all these years.

Hope you'll lc chat with us on your progress - new Thread each week - we're here chatting til tomorrow: Weekly Chat for Oct 29-Nov 5

Good Luck!

Hello. I will be starting with you tomorrow. I have done atkins before and have lost so well. You can do 20 pounds easy. If you do read the book it makes it a lot easier. So I will be in the same boat with you. The first week is the toughest, but if you can make it through that then you will be just fine. I will be more than happy to be a supporter with you since we are both starting.
