Thought I posted here, but it went somewhere else. Oops! Want to make sure you get this, so I'm repeating. I just joined this group but want you to know that I've been reading posts on the Living Low Carb Life for about a month now. I'm so impressed with you, Russel, as well as Wobble and a few others. You've inspired me and have made me feel like I have some knowledgeable and successful people to go to when I need help. Thank you!

Good things about Low Carb Eating??
I can eat all the stuff they have been telling me not to for all my life, and I still lose weight.

Loose skin is problematic with a large weight loss.
It is a trade off for me. I'd rather be healthy.

Hey, Veg. I started this new life at 218. I am also old. Seems like we should be friends.
Hopefully, I will have lost a lot of weight soon. What about that loose skin?

Just getting back on track with low carb. Today I was reminded of one of the many benefits...I ate 2 egg patties and 4 thin pieces of ham for breakfast and wasn't hungry until well after lunch time. Reduced hunger is an awesome benefit!
Other benefits for me include no bloating, weight loss, weight maintenance, and convenience.

Thanks, James.
I am almost at my target weight.
Still low carbing.
I am adding a bit larger salad, 3 carb bread (50 calories) and 1/4 cup fresh blueberries.
Will continue with that for a week or two then may add another low carb vegetable.
My body will give me the answer.

Low carbing and drinking 8 plus glasses of water daily has given me quality in the life I live.

Yes, I've lost weight.
The bonus is that I can move with ease now.
Am off pain meds for arthritis (more than one type) Ehlers Danlos and Fibromyalgia has taken a long hike!
I have 12 more pounds to lose.
Started out at 219 and am now 140.
Haven't felt this good in 40 years!
(Yes, I am old but don't look or act my age.)

Also, I was pre-diabetic (Metabolic Syndrome X). No more. My doctor pooh poohs the low carb connection as the cure.

CHERYLKNITS,

Follow your plan. My plan was to eat low carb for 6 months, loose the body fat, then go back to "normal" food.

The thing is that I never went back.

I just rejoined Sparkpeople about a week ago, and was going to just follow the calorie recommendations. But then I remembered that I had followed a low carb plan about four years ago, and had lost about 30 pounds by following that plan.
Of course, then I broke my toe and got lazy, started adding other foods back, etc. and you know the rest of the story.
So now I have about 50 pounds to lose, and determined that low carb is the way to go.
I'm determined to be around for a long time, and feel that this way of life is the best option for me.
Down a little over a pound just by following the calorie recommendations, looking forward to better losing by following the low carb lifestyle.

When faced with pizza, I still indulge, but leaving the crust behind.

I was plagued by frequent hypoglycemic episodes before low carb, but it's under much better control now that I don't have roller coaster spikes and valleys. It's taken a long time though (I'd say at least 2 years) and I still have make sure I start the day with high fat or I will get woozy part way through the morning. Guess it never really goes away.

I moved to a new place last week and on Day 1 my plan was to clean the kitchen enough to begin stocking low carb food. This place was so filthy that plan was scuttled nearly immediately. We found things like a table knife and a house key hidden in mounds of grime.

My first night was hungrily eating pizza. Crust and all.

The next morning, I went to the local Giant and bought a trays of sandwich wraps and veggies and sliced cheese and deli meat to feed us.

I had paid someone I knew to help with the cleaning. I noticed that she didn't gobble food as my daughter and I did when we took a food break. I'm a Type 2 diabetic and my daughter shows some of the same hypoglycemic tendencies I did at her age.

I've been low carb for over a year now. I'm down 77 lbs. My daughter has fibromyalgia, Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, VSD heart defect & an anxiety disorder. She had so much pain and her knees just gave out. Her heart raced a lot too. She was in wheelchair for 7 years from age 7 to 13. She begged me to help her get out of it. Putting her in artistic roller skating did not help. Taking her off wheat did not help. Only a ketogenic low carb diet AND taking her off wheat has taken her completely off her wheelchair. It used to be in the living room everyday. Now it's in the storage shed outside. She is down 30 lbs and grew 3" and able to walk a mile now. Took her to cardiologist we haven't seen in 2 years. She was told she no longr needs heart surgery. She cried & hugged and said "Thank you mom, for helping me get this healthy".She'll be 15 next month.

I LOVE low carb! It's easy to forget how much when you are stuck on the carb binge merry go round, always craving that sugar. Having just restarted myself on Atkins again after a long break away (should never have left) I realize this time just how liberating it is.

NO HUNGER
NO CRAVINGS

Most of all I love the feeling of freedom. I don't have to be afraid to eat. It doesn't hurt that the allowed foods on the low carb diets are so darned good. Let's see, a hamburger patty or a rice cake... hum... man that's a hard choice---NOT. LOL

Reading all of the wonderful posts above has been fun, but man I never realized that skin tags were associated with a carb based diet. I am looking forward to losing some of those stupid things.

Live, Laugh, Love

Just remember to scrape the toppings off as soon as you put the pizza on the plate lest you may be tempted. My daughter makes the cauliflower crust and says it's quite tasty.

1. Stop wasting money- Save money

2. Exercise- do something every day

3. Get organized- mise en place

4. Write a letter by hand at least once a week.

Mjefferson, I do that all of the time with pizza. My plate looks a little strange after I've finished eating.. But, it's what I do. I've been doing that for some time now. Wish you could just have them put the pizza toppings on a plate and serve it that way and save their crust.

I make "pizza" at home that way, put a little pizza sauce on a salad plate, add the toppings, and cheese and put it in my toaster oven until It gets all gooey and melted - then enjoy!!

Yes! Doubting Thomases think that you need the crust for it to taste like pizza, but there's no flavor in the wheat flour, it's all in the toppings and seasoning.

I get a pizza with all the toppings I like, then eat the toppings, and discard the crust. It is just as satisfying. anyone ever done this?

If you've read this entire thread then one thing should jump out at you. Weight loss is just a side effect.

Yup. Low carb is the healthiest way to eat, and the fact that it also regulates your fat storage is just a side note, not the primary emphasis.

Phew! Took me two days to read through this thread. Really encouraging and inspiring. I just finished 3 days of induction. I feel fine, a wee bit dizzy. Yes, I used celtic sea salt. I don't have any opinions yet. Why? Cuz I usually drop out when I stop losing. I am a turtle and get frustrated. It sounds so stupid when I write it out here. Hopefully I will stick with it the first 30 days. I plan to.
Thanks

Peace and Paint,

One thing I have noticed about eating low carb is a lot less food seems to get wasted. I can always throw my left over meat in with some eggs the next day for breakfast. I seem to be taking out the trash much less this past week.

Here is a low carb cracker recipe to put that cheese on:

geboard_thread.asp?board=25210x58980R>x52497469


4% carbs by weight!, making my personal 5% cutoff. Of course if you had put your cheese on a regular cracker, like wheat thins, that would have been around 60%.

I love cheese too.

The great thing about eating low carb.... hmmm... CHEESE! I haven't had heartburn in a week....CHEESE.... I've already lost 10 lbs (mostly water weight, I know)... did I mention CHEESE!!!!!

I don't just eat meat and cheese.... LOL

I love veggies with melted CHEESE! I love crusty old aged cheese. I love making pinwheels w\ veggies, turkey and cream cheese.

Oh and the sugar\bread cravings were gone by day 3. woo hoo!!!!

Yesterday was a tough day for some reason. I was really hungry at work and in the eve found myself walking around the house. Several times I ended up in front of the cupboards or the refer. I wasn't that hungry but I was not full. Like when you've been on a diet for several days and you eat tons of veggies and a bit of meat and you eat regularly but you never feel "full"?? That was the feeling. I kept telling myself "this will pass" - have some tea. I think it was because I wanted to exercise but it was dark and my toes are still sore from ingrown toenail surgery, and so I had pent up energy. Today I do not feel so driven (yet) and have my soled slippers to get out and walk.

I have DVD's to work out to but got a new TV and hubby hasn't figured out how to hook them up. Just taking the time to type this gives me ideas. Paying attention to my needs and mtyself to solve a simple problem like this is not automatic. But I'm getting there!

I have every type of diet. I have found that low carb works the best for me. I am not diabetic but my entire family is and it keeps my sugars completely normal. I have also had the bypass surgery and I find that it helps with the dumping syndrome.
