I started eating low carb about 15 months ago to loose body fat. I've battled my weight most of my life. This battle was unlike any other because in short order I found that if I ate low carb then I didn't need my diabetes meds, and I had been taking them for 10 years.
So this is no temporary diet for me, it is a way of life.
Best wishes on your weight loss,
All time highest weight : 217 pounds
Starting weight : 195.0 pounds (June 7, 2012)
Final weight : 168.2 pounds (July 23, 2013)
Thanks for all of the replies. It's very inspirational to see other people with big goals making such great progress!
Hi Mike, welcome to the team
Welcome! This is a great group.
Highest Weight: 375
I know what you mean about the high carb diet teensy meals!
This time I'm staying LC for life. It's just not worth it to quit!

Hi Mike! We're glad you're with us!
You're right - LC is the way to go. It's a lifestyle you can adopt for life - and have all sorts of yummy "extras" that the "average dieter" (whatever that is!) just can't believe you can have. Sauces. Bacon - mmmmm
In our house, we combine low/restricted carb with primal (just eat real food!), and it's a great way to live.
Hope to see you here often!
Keep us posted with your progress!
...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.
Hi and welcome! (And a special (((hug))) for being a Pirate fan!)
The team name says it all - LIVING Low Carb. For most of us here this is no longer a "diet", it's our permanent way of eating.
Don't hesitate to post frequently. It's a carby world out there and we need all the support we can get!
As I was going to St. Ives,
I met a man with seven wives,
Each wife had seven sacks,
Each sack had seven cats,
Each cat had seven kits:
Kits, cats, sacks, and wives,
How many were there going to St. Ives?
Hi everyone. I'm Mike. It's very nice to meet you all. I've gone up and down on the weight loss yo-yo more than a few times in the past, and this time I intend to get the weight off and keep it off. I have used a low carb diet previously to lose about 50 pounds (13 years ago), but those pounds came creeping back with a vengeance over time and brought friends with them. Now I find myself starting over again.
I'm about a week into this and I'm very happy to have found this group. Low carb is the only way for me to go. Low fat with miniature portions makes me waaay too cranky and doesn't work nearly as well for me.
