Nice to have you here!

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; . . . who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” —Theodore Roosevelt

It sounds like your family is already ahead of the game. I originally tried to cook both kinds of foods as my hubby was not thrilled at cutting back on carbs but when he tasted the recipes and liked them he was on board. It is just too much work to have to fix two meals and if junky food is around I'll get into it. I was thin until after menopause and then gained weight but I am highly active again now and get in a minimum of 15,000 steps a day.

Thanks for the welcome and advice! You are right! It is my fault for buying, cooking and baking the high carb foods when they come! My 7 grandchildren are healthy, active and normal weight. They burn off what they eat, because they are so active. :) Congratulations to you and your family on losing weight and getting fit!! :) ~hugs~ Nancy

Welcome, Nancy!! It sounds like this group is perfect for you. My advice would be to encourage your family to eat healthy. My 27 year old son and hubby eat the same things that I eat. If it's actually a healthy food then we can all share it and if it's junk food than really none of us should be eating it expect on special occasions. Fix your children and grand children what you eat and maybe you can prevent them from developing diabetes like your husband. It runs in families as you know and is one of the leading causes of heart disease, renal failure, blindness, amputation, peripheral neuropathy, etc. My son lost 120 pounds after we started doing smart carbing and earned a black belt in taekwondo. We all went from obese to fit.

My name is Nancy, and I live in central Virginia. I am eager to learn more about eating smart carbs. My husband is a diabetic now, and we have been working on eliminating the refined carbs and the white stuff. It is hard sometimes, especially when our children and grandchildren come to visit us. We usually can't resist the higher carb foods I make for our family. I do send whatever is left over home with them. I think this team is just perfect for me and for my DH! Nancy
