I have 100+ to lose and so here I am :)
I am doing a self modified low carb plan and it has been working out so far for the past couple weeks. I've had a lot of previous experience with dieting and exercising, but nothing I stuck to for more than a year.
I am currently down 14 lbs from my highest weight and working on the rest of the lbs :)

You have come to a good place ~ it is an amazing group of people ~ so supportive, encouraging and understanding.
Looking forward to getting to know you.
I joined this board just a week or so ago. I too am on a self-designed 'careful carb' eating plan and would be interested to hear about yours.
I'm eating lots of low-starch veggies, as well as moderate amounts of fruit, dairy and protein, but I am avoiding starch. I have high fiber cereal w/ protein (such as Grapenuts, or Quaker's Women's Nutrition Oatmeal) for breakfast and sometimes a few crumbs on some chicken or fish, but that's about it for now. My problem is that once I start eating starch, I don't stop.
AND ... my cravings have subsided and I've pretty much stuck to my plan since Jan 2. I promised myself I'd only step on the scale once every two weeks, so this Thursday is weigh-day for me!
Again, welcome! I look forward to getting to know you.
