I've been lurking for a while and decided to join the fun. I've been very low carb for just over a month, and did Atkins about six weeks before that. My wonderful boys are 5 years old and 8 months old, and I have a great, supportive husband. I've struggled with my weight most of my life and I'm just sick of it. Most everyone in my family is obese and has sever medical problems and I am determined not to follow suit. I recently got a hula hoop and I love it! I suck, but it's so much fun it doesn't matter. Looking forward to getting to know you all.
