You really peeled the weight off last time, Mona. I hope you do as well this time.

Thank you all so very much. I just know I have found a key to my getting back on track. I am really looking forward to being a part of this team.

Today is my fifth low carb day and my normal weigh in day is Friday. I peeked this morning and it is working.

Have a GREAT day new friends!! Hugs, Mona emoticon

Welcome Mona!

I have been in the same place as you, losing and then struggling with regain. You are a smart lady to take control now! Low carb eating will really help keep those cravings away! emoticon

I have heard of migraines that bad. Pretty scary. I had a hypertension headache once and don't want another.

Great job on keeping the weight off and for recognizing what you need to do now for your ongoing weight loss! emoticon

Welcome MONAMOM!

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!

I hear you Mona! I am back to sparking as a complete do over. 2008 was great but 2009 wasn't mine! LOL! Why just last night I had to overdo my carb intake due to a migraine that was starting out as temporary blindness. I knew the symptoms so I took a quick dose of carbs and caffiene to prevent the excruciating pain. It worked! (This hasn't happened in 6 years).

Anyway...I know my weightloss will be slow this week but I will come out to the good if I just stick to it.

Thats all that you have to do...stick with it! Allow your mind, body and spirit to work together to form a new you inside and out!

WELCOME to the group!

Doing it again! See my other SP forkitless.

Romans 12: 1-2 "Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will."

I hope everyone will help Mona to stay on track. She is a good sparkfriend of mine. She did an amazing job to lose that weight and I know she can get back there again.

Mona, you still kept the majority of your weight off and that's a good thing. If you have any questions you can post a new message or you can usually find some of us in the sticky threads. This is one of the best teams I know of for members who gladly volunteer their ideas and support. We work with you on your plan to help you.

I had to break away from starchy carbs and sugar all at once to be able to stay away from them. Even now, if I have a serving of certain things, it can turn all the carb cravings back on. One thing that helps is realizing that my drastically improved health is too much of a price to pay for a few moments of pleasure and then returned bondage to the carbs.

My name is Mona and I am a carb junkie. I lost 99 pounds on Jenny Craig and I have gained 40 of it back. Until I can control my own eating~~mostly carbs~~ I am going to remain on this vicious cycle of up and down weight. Hoping to find help and encouragement on this team. Hugs!!
