Hi and welcome! Glad to see you posting on the team forum - it's a great place to get support and info, and is always active. People come and go but the core group is rock steady!

Labour is prior to, and independent of capital. Capital is only the fruit of labour, and could never have existed if labour had not first existed. Labour is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration.

In have been a member here for quite some time, but have not been posting. In fact, I pretty much dropped off SP because most of the ladies on a team I loved stopped posting and it was just me most of the time. I came back because I needed to make some drastic changes in my life. In less than 3 weeks, I have drastically reduced my carb intake, cut my portions, eaten healthier, started working in some exercise, and lost 22 pounds! Besides being very out of shape and making all of the changes in my eating, I truly believe that eating mostly wheat/gluten free has made all the difference. I am already off meds for IBS and my Acid Reflux has improved so much that I will be off the medication I take for it. In addition, my allergies are doing better. Today, I fit comfortably into a pair of jeans that I could barely squeeze into 3 weeks ago. I am making good progress and want to keep moving in the right direction. I am determined....and committed....to keep myself on track and make this a lifestyle change rather than just a means of losing weight.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. I hope to post as often as I can. Hope you all had a Wonderful carb free 4th celebration.

I did better at the gym yesterday but still not up to full energy by a long way. Not sure if it is the body reaction to lo carb or the heat.

Also having a few problems with constipation I don't remember that from last time. ugh

Hi and welcome!

The team name says it all - LIVING Low Carb. We're all here "for the duration". Low carb isn't a diet to us, it's a long-term lifestyle.

The most positive thing you can do to keep yourself on track is to post or blog or check in the site daily. It's a carby world out there, and there's not a lot of support for this lifestyle outside of groups like this. Hope to see you around often!

Evidently, you are submersed in a culture overrepresented by people who are (at least in how they present themselves to the world) not insulin resistant--whose muscles and tissue don't bloat with the tell-tale signs of water-retention and weight-retention of those of us who are insulin-resistant.

Sometimes, extreme fitness activity even compounds the problem (the cortisol effect of overexertion and overchallenging workouts) ...

So, I think I still am reaching out to the already-converted - as you already know what works.

Hi all,

I am new to this forum, (not new to sp though). I posted once already but I think I posted in the wrong place I still haven't got this all worked out etc.

I live in Vietnam and about 10 yrs ago lost 100 lb lo carbing but.... gradually started not paying attention and it all went back on and more. I know how much a good support group helped me through that time. My journey this time started first with joining a gym and having a personal trainer. This was a scary step for me but I wasn't ready to event think about food at that stage. I managed to loose about 8kg over a few months just by exercising, not the dramatic results my trainer expected I am sure. I was introduced to Sparkpeople by a friend and at that time realised that I needed to be more focused about food choices etc so cut calories and fats and started logging everything, that saw me loose another 20kg over about a year, but I have been stalled since March going up and down the same 1-2kg. And that is with eating about 1200 Cal per day and doing 3 sessions of personal training (1-1.5hrs) and 3 one hour cardio sessions a week. I decided I needed to shake things up as I needed to loose about 3 kg quickly or I would be charged a 20% BMI penalty on my health insurance...Good incentive, and so while I was dragging my feet I realised I needed to go back on Atkins.

I am on day 10 of induction. and it seems to be doing the trick. I have lost about 3kgs so far and I am just a smidgen away from being the right weight for my insurance. They were generous and gave me an extension to reach this target. I am happy about the quick loss as it has been very slow going up until these last two weeks.
I will be needing support though as everyone around eats tonnes of rice and fruit and of course everyone is skinny!!!
