Hello Cher, You will probably hear this from others here also. Exercise is key. Start slow and build your endurance. By trying to much at once you are more likely to sabotage your efforts by thinking that this is going to be way to hard. So, slow and steady. I don't do low carb, so I can't offer you any suggestions on that. Several people here do so maybe they will chime in on that. Welcome to the group!!
Nibs, Getting those extra pounds off now is a great idea before they become double that and then triple. I know alot of wish we could go back and start when we were still only moderately overweight. This is a great place for support. Welcome!! Remember to post often on how you are doing.
If you learn from your suffering, and really come to understand the lesson you were taught, you might be able to help someone else who's now in the phase you may have just completed. Maybe that's what it's all about after all...
