Does anyone else count calories with low carb eating? I have been a lurker here for a long time and decided to get on the forum for support. I have approx. 20# to lose and since I am old and short (5'1"):D, seems like I have to really watch my calories.

I lost 40# a few years ago doing low carb but that just stopped. Think I was eating too many calories although I stayed on program. So have been struggling for a long time. Would lose and then gain, but this is the year that I am going to get to my goal.

Have lost a few #'s since I started logging calories and carbs the first of the week, so think this is going to work for me.

Would love to have others join me in this journey.

Many of us watch our calories as well as our carbs. There are a lot of great threads in the low carb forum. Low carb is usually more satisfying, so that's why a lot of people don't think that they need to watch calories. I keep mine around 1500 a day.

Welcome and good luck!
