Welcome, Jennifer. There is a lot of inspiration on this site. I read more than I post. I love reading the posts from so many people who know exactly what I'm going through. I decided to do low carb recently and went with Atkins. So far, so good. The first couple of days were the toughest but stick with it and you'll do great.
