I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Jen and really need & want to lose weight. I have struggled off and on for years and now I'm at the highest weight I have ever been. I'm so bummed about it.
I have 3 kids that keep me pretty busy and I am a stay at home mom.
I've been doing WW, but it wasn't a good fit for me. I know that I am addicted to carbs and sugar and when I eat those things, It causes the biggest, nastiest binge ever. And then I end up feeling sick and sluggish, miserable, etc...
Due to a metabolic disorder recently (due to being heavy, unhealthy, it's thrown some stuff out of whack, but if I lose weight and control my carbs, this will fix itself), I have been encouraged to do low carb. I did Atkins 13 years ago. I lost 25lbs. But I have gained SO much weight since then and now it's kind of overwhelming to think about!
Right now, I am starting my 3rd day. Usually in the past when I go low carb, I have a melting point and I can't get through those first few days. I know that's the detox of the carbs.
I started Friday and I felt great all day! Yesterday, I felt great all day and I even cut out my coffee. And so far today, I feel great and not tempted and I'm not in that carb fog either.
I need to buy some Keto stix. But I weighed in Friday before I ate for the day and started at 315. Today I weigh 311 exactly. I must be doing something right! LOL!!
I just wanted to say hi and I'm going to just jump right in!
