I started low carb back in June 2004,when I was told I had PCOS - and by that December I had dropped 65lbs! I felt great. I had a medical/emotional issue in Nov/Dec 04 - that was very hard for me to get over (still struggling), I got laid off Jan 05, took a bad job Feb 05-July 05 and then got pregnant.
Needless to say, I have put on about 20 of those lost pounds and had gotten away from the lo-carb lifestyle. I still limit my sugar, but I have become more free with the "treats".
So when I get back from vacation on September 11 - I am going to start the 30lbs in 30 weeks challenge offered by LivinLaVidaLoCarb. I am already stocking the house with some lo-carb favorites like Beef Jerky and Pork Rinds. I tend to stick closer to South Beach, you get more carbs, fruit and less fat than Atkins. I hope to start CURVES back up as well.
I am going to break out my ole cookbooks and can't wait to try Shirataki noodles. I don't plan on posting my weights - but I will share the lbs lost or gained!
