Angry New ... Looking for Challenge, Support, or Buddy

Hi, everyone. My name is Emma. I am a self-employed mother of two children. I have tried low carbing before, but developed yeast complications. My doctor is helping me with it now to tailor my menu a bit. I have read the Atkin's book twice and many other bits of literature. I am looking to join a group, a challenge, or find a buddy. My Induction starts tomorrow and I am really nervous, but ready ... just would like a hand or two to hold. Thanks for reading this!

Hi Emma I can't add much more than what Trazzie has written because it's all true and about sums up our group. They're a great bunch of people and you never run out of SOMEONE that gives great support. Believe me (I've got chocolate addictions)!!!! Welcome and post away

Emma, welcome to the board. As the others have said I hope to see you come visit the daily thread and feel free to jump right in. This place is even great on the "bad" days when eating doesn't seem to go right although we all have a tendancy to go away for a couple of days if we fell off program, it's a great accountibility piece that is vital to weight loss.

Talking What a Great Group!

Thank you so much, everyone! I really appreciate all this feedback. I really do need just someplace to come while I am going through the first few days of Induction, especially! I went to the market (just got back) and have stocked up on low carb foods using a low carb shopping list found here. I spent a lot, but I didn't want to have a craving and not have good foods on hand to combat it.

I'm hoping to be a positive addition here

Oh wait. We're supposed to be POSITIVE additions?? That leaves me out.

Good Morning Emma,
I'm not a regular member, I pop in and out when my boss isn't looking ....and I'm sure not a possitive addition but I do try. I'm not doing all that well ( 2 pounds since Valentines Day )but I'm told that any weight loss durning menapause is a mircale (yeah and I can't spell either ). But I do like these forums and just being able to pop in once in a while has helped. Some time just a giggle can break a bad mood and prevent the danish from going where it shouldn't be going!!!
So welcome, good luck and hope to see you hear now and again.

Thanks again, everyone! I'm down one pound since yesterday, which feels pretty good. I'm looking for 2 pounds per week, but I am so envious of those who have lost 60 in just a few months. I am having some cravings, but doing pretty well. Hoping this becomes just second nature after awhile and that my demons don't surface!
