Glad to have you with us. We're a friendly bunch, and hope we can help you find your way in this lifestyle. Please ask anything - we love to answer any kinds of questions. Sometimes the "teachers" learn as much as the "students" ... and everyone has special tips and tricks that might benefit everyone - even those who have been on the plan for a long time!
It's been a great change for me. My health and wellbeing are so improved - the weight loss has been a boon (and what I really began to accomplish), but I find I appreciate the other benefits at least as much as that loss. That seems to be a common thread for many on the various low-carb plans, and I hope it will work out the same for you!
It's good you recognize your weakness for carbs. I also am a lifetime carb addict. Those cravings have all but disappeared for the most part, but I know it's still there. I have to be extra vigilant, because it only takes a mouthful to start me up. Breads and rice are the worst. I just daren't go there at all.
Please lean on us and let us help you develop your own version and style of low-carb. We are definitely your team!

...the problem with people these days is
they've forgotten we're really just animals ...
We did not create the web of life; we are but a strand in it.
We don't have souls. We ARE souls. We have bodies.
