Thumbs up Waving from the Netherlands!!

Hello all!

I'm from the Netherlands. Low Carb is not very popular here. Everybody eats lots of potatoes and pizza's and pasta's.

We sure don't have the lc goodies around, but that may be best!
I made the first dutch atkins site, many people visit it every day, so I hope to make low carb more popular in Holland!
I also started an emailgroup, we've gotten quite a group so things are starting to work out!

Hope to see more Dutch fellow's here!

Hey,
I think you and I talked alittle around the kerst last year. of zo iets. Well, I am back on the wagon again after going from 47 kilos to 60 kilos. I was trying to have one more child but the hormones just increased my weight in less than 2 months. I am really upset. I just had a miscarriage and that makes me even more depressed but oh well I want my old self back. Send me the link to your site please. Do you discuss places to get low carb foods and etc.?

Arrow To Kelly Ann!!

I'm so sorry it took me so long to respond. I haven't checked this board for over a month and I saw your reply late last night!

I'd love to chat with you. My site is [click on the www logo at the bottom of my posts] and I'm still working on it. I also made a Dutch Yahoogroup. We have a lot of fun and members keep coming to join us every month.

I'm so sorry that you're going trough such a horrible time.

Hugs,
Gwyneth

Talking allo Gwyneth

I was born in Apeldoorn, but sadly don't have the written (or very much spoken) Nedelandse...

Say hello to all LowCarbers (and my relatives, mostly in Hilversum) from Canada for me!

Hi! I'm an American, but I live out here with my husband and son. DH just started Atkins on the 2nd of this month, and I've been on the plan since November.

Too bad there arent more of us out here, its so hard finding LC products.

Hi Vicky, we're having a bit of a talk in antoher thread right now, it's called something with Amsterdam in the name and you can find it when you go to "everywhere"!

Where do youlive in the Netherlands? I think it does make a difference, in some parts you have better stores than in others!

HI Gwneth
I live in Germany,formerly from the U.S. Now call Düsseldorf home. I was wondering if you will have an English version?
I was just informed you can now buy SF Da Vinci syrup in Germany.

Post Hi Gwynneth

I am also in the Netherlands and looking for buddies to get through this program. My mother died suddenly four years ago. I was two weeks into a Master's Degree and started gaining weight. Three grueling years later, I exited a bad relationship, graduated from school and began a business in Washington, DC.... about 90 pounds heavier than I started. Luckily, I met my amazing husband, a Dutchy, who loves even the fat me! Less than a year later, I closed my practice, married him and moved to Holland. Since then, I have decided to stop torturing myself with food and start LIVING again! Here I am....beginning Atkins to find the "old me" under all the layers of protection from all the hurts of the world! Now I am looking for people I can get advice from and to help me through the maze of unavailable products here in the Netherlands. I look forward to hearing from you, hopefully.

Charlotte

HI CHARLOTT
Just had to say hi..you sure have gone through a lot lately and I am very proud of you for starting your life over agin.
I live in Germany with my German DH. We met over the internet and well one thing led to another . I now find myself happily married living in a curious land with some strange ways. But it has been a great adventure! My DH only knows me as"fluffy and soft" If I can give you a bit of help please let me know..LC products just are not heard of here. So we have to make most of our foods from scratch. But not so hard and can be fun..also keeps you more in line with the WOE.
Good luck
Pattie

Hello Charlotte,
My name is Dana and I live in Belgium.
I've been to the US on holliday a few months ago and it's obvious that the US is Atkins minded. But here in Europe Atkins isn't well known. Although I don't live in the Netherlands I'l try to help you finding the right products and things.
Greatings,
