I have been posting on the low carb forum, but I have switched to a more balanced diet. Still watching carb intake but in the form of complex carbs.
I am 36... four children, 11-8-5-5, well five if you count DH. I work part time and need to get healthy. MAJOR weight gain after I quit smoking, but I think it has more to do with life stress than nicotine.
I walk 60 min a day 4 miles. and weight train every other day. I am losing inches and pounds and I stopped obsessing about how much I lose each week and just keep going at it. I find I am more successful now than when I was worried about the progress daily.
I look forawrd to readin all yur posts. I see a lot of new moms. Glad I am out of that stage, but congrats to you all, with four children, you can tell I love them lol
Ciao for now!

Hey great, another newbie..... I am 33. Still working on my goal. I am a mother of one... That's enough for me!!!! I try to eat balanced, but also try to not over do it on the carbs also!!! I think that is best. Ya know. You have to change your eating habits. Not just think of it as a DIET! So I've just altered the way I eat all the time. For the rest of my life. I have been doing this for about two years and have been pretty good! No more fast food joints for this girl! Anyways Just wanted to say HI to everyone!
