My name is Fran, a 72 yo WeightWatchers member trying to get rid of my last 10 pounds. There are several things at work here - first and foremost - Attitude! I am sick of tracking and obsessing about food all the time. Carbs are my addiction and know a high protein, low carb way of eating works best for me, so am going to see if being an active member of this team might help me stay focused on just this for a time.

The other is age - it simply is not as easy at it once was. And also, those first pounds are the easiest - motivation is at its highest, plus cutting back a little here and there makes an impact. Later, after those first pounds go, it takes more cutting back and exercising to keep it going. I feel like I have cut back about as much as I'm willing to, but also feel if I could get to my goal, I could maintain it. So, new year, ready to make a stab at it.

Started out at 199 10 yrs ago. Lost the first 25 pretty readily, then 5 more that come and go - and at the present have come back again. My goal weight is 155 and I am currently 164.4.

So, here goes! Wish me luck.

I eat the same way for the most part - I try to avoid grains, sugar, and other highly processed foods.

Hi all. I joined this team some time ago, but I don't remember if I introduced myself and looking through posts I didn't see where I had, so doing so now. My name is Darlene and I am working on eating a bit lower carb than I had been since I have diabetes and IBS so that I can't take the metformin anymore. Currently I have been told NO grain, no white potatoes. Can have meat, eggs, veggies and fruit as long as they don't mess up the IBS. Other than that the list allows dairy, nuts and stuff like that (lost my list, so I'm not sure all the once a day or a little more list). I'm trying to find recipes that I can use that will keep me from the grains but I can make some things I enjoy similar to them, but don't cost much.

Welcome.

One of the things I do to stay on my low carb way of living/eating is to only buy foods that are 6 grams per 100 of net carbs or less. It really cuts out the high carb stuff, and reduces the mid range stuff.

I have a few exceptions, like unsweetened peanut butter, but I only have a spoonful or two of that at a time, not a cup full.

Hi, My name is Silvia and we recently retired to Gloucester VA.

I am about to give low carb another shot due to health issues and look forward to learning some tips and recipes to stay on track. :)

10% and 10 minutes is a great place to start!

Hi y'all! I am Missy. I live in Louisiana. I am 51, married with two older teenagers. I have tried Atkins and it worked great until the holidays came along last year and I went off and now want to get back on it. I know it works even though I didn't go as low as 20g/day of carbs. I am excited to find this recipe board and try my hand at cooking them for me and my family. I know that this time I have to stick to the phases all the way to maintenance. My best friend wants to try it as well and I hope to get her here. Looking forward to getting to know ya'll and make some yummy low carb food.

Love thru Christ,
Missy

HUNGRYWON,
All calories are not the same. The term "empty calories" aptly describes carbohydrates. Typically pure energy and nothing else for "building" a healthy body.

Record what you eat and drink, especially record the grams of carbs, if you get below 60 a day you will see some dramatic changes with little hunger.

You may be interested in the new South Beach Gluten Free diet book. I have it and the gleten free cookbook. It's the latest south beach diet book and relies a little less on processed foods. I have all the south beack books and cookbooks. My son and I went on it in 2008 and he lost 120 pounds he moved away and went of it and gained part of it back. I'm sure you joined the South beach team too. The info on the food lists is on that team.

Hello,

I've been struggling with getting rid of 10-20 pounds over the past several years. This amount fluctuates between 10 and 20 and whenever I get close to my goal (145), I always seem to sabotage myself. My worst weight gain happens in my stomach, and I feel like I look 6 months pregnant most of the time.

My best friend has done South Beach in the past, and I saw dramatic weight loss in her tummy! I mean, it was truly amazing...so I figured I'd give it a try.

I'm at 163.4 right now (June 24) and in just over a month I'm taking a trip with my fiancé to Catalina Island and I want to be able to wear my cute shorts, sundresses and such like things AND buy something sexy and surprise my man (TMI?) emoticon

Anyway, I love SparkPeople regardless of what diet I'm on. I also love "clean" food - so I think if I can just tweak what I'm eating maybe it will help.

Any experiences with success on this plan would be more than welcome. I'm looking forward to getting to know those active in the group and getting support and advise and meeting my goal in time for my trip.

South Beach has a gluten free version now which is really nice. They also have a gluten free cookbook. Paleo and Primal are also good for gluten free and also minimal processed foods. I'm on a gluten free diet.

SUNNY112358,
I also had been trying to loose weight for as long as I can remember. I had tried a few different diets, but with no permanent loss. Two years ago I went on a low carb diet. Finally a plan to loose fat and not be suffering with hunger while doing it.

It also controlled my type 2 diabetes without medication after 9 years of pills. So, did not go back to carbs.

Here are a few links to treat recipies:

Hello, I joined a while ago but I don't think I've formally introduced myself. I've been trying to lose weight all my life and I'm fed up, so I've given myself a two-year goal to my 60th birthday. I have found that various versions of Low-Carb work best for me. I am currently doing the Dukan Diet to lose fast as I've regained a lot of weight recently, but I'll eventually alternate with South Beach Diet for maintenance, or Atkins if I hit a plateau. I'm also experimenting with Gluten-Free.
I love cooking, especially baking as I have a boy who wants treats but has also put on weight so I need recipes for low-carb goodies. I hope you can help.

Hi Everyone... My name is Deby...

I have been on a plateau for quite some time... and just recently a dear friend of mine (offline) told me about Atkins along with a great book Sugar Busters... so Last friday.. I started the low carbs by Atkins... I am happy to say I have lost 4 lbs. I am off my plateau... and feeling great...

I thought this would be a great team to interact with others who are sharing their LOW-CARB experiences

Wishing everyone ALL the Best

~*~ LOVE ~&~ BLESSings ~*~ ALLways ~*~Deby~*~

Most of us can relate. I can lose on other plans but it doesn't address my medical problems and low carb does.

The only way I've been able to lose weight in the past two decades is to eat low carb. Sticking with it is my problem. Actually Sticking with anything is a challenge for me. I exercised (boot camp) regularly for 3 months and lost a total of 3 pounds. Once I miss a day, then getting back into it is difficult. Hope this site (SparkPeople) will help me to stick to my goals.

I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish that He didn't trust me so much.

I joined this team to help me learn LC recipes that taste good... Eating low carb is the best way for me to eat, as I have RA and other autoimmune issues. I want to learn how to make healthy eating sustainable for the rest of my life, so I can continue to feel good.

Hi! I wanted to take a moment and introduce myself. My name is Jennifer and I am married to an amazing guy (for 15 years in July) and we have two girls ages 8 and 6. Adam and I started low carb last year after he had to start on high blood pressure meds (age 34) and he decided to do something to change his habits. I want to lose about 20# and he has a larger goal. I look forward to learning from you, getting recipes, hints, and support. By the way, after the holidays, low carb is the only diet I have ever desperately craved getting back on! I feel full and when I don't eat this way I feel like crap. Amazing.

The thaw is coming. As much as I'm looking forward to it, I dread schlepping through the slush and salt like mixtures and the extra floor cleaning that comes with it!

If you are on other low carb teams, you may have read this before.....if not..... well here ya go! emoticon

Hi All! I'm Diana, 58 and a Chicago cops wife. My kids are grown and have gifted me with 6 beautiful grand daughters and a very handsome grandson! Bonus! A great grand daughter too! I'm hesitant to mention the name of the plan I'm following...because the name makes it seem less legit. But I gave it a half heart effort in October and lost 11 lbs and over 13". I wasn't hungry, my body began function more regularly and I was sleeping better than I had in years. My lab numbers improved an my doctor was actually a bit giddy about the results. My husband went on furlough in Nov. and I wasn't ingrained enough in the program to keep it up. My routine changes a lot with having hubby home. The good news is no gains during the holidays. I'm guessing while I wasn't falling the plan, the info was in the back of my mind and influencing my choices here and there. Enough to keep me from back tracking. Yesterday I started the first phase over. An 8 week reset that allows plenty of neutral foods and a fair amount of counter carbs. Enough so I don't feel deprived. I'm looking forward to sharing recipes, ideas, successes, support and much more with you all!

Hi
I am new to this, I tried to be lower on carb for 2 weeks in late October (2013) and lost 2 kg (4 pounds) so I want to try to go all the way in. I have 100 lbs to loose and want to do so before end of this year.
I live in Iceland so my English isn't perfect but I hope you can understand me emoticon
