I am new to SB but not to 3FC. I was a Low Carber back in 2003-2005 on the Atkins forums.
I cant remember my username and all my email info has changed since then so I am starting Fresh.
Today is day one on SB. I printed out a bunch of info today and spent a better part of yesterday hunting for the book. I am heading to Target today to see if they have it once I drop the kids off at school. I guess everyone around here is on SB!
Oh, I am Karen, SAHM/WAHM of 2 kids ages 8 and 10. We live in WA State. I am a Crochet and Knit pattern designer.
I have been on and off diets all my life. In 2003, I was diagnosed as insulin resistant. My doctor recommended Atkins and I started my low carb life. I lost 66 pounds and kept it off unti march of 2006, when I started having Asthma Trouble. I have been off and on Prednisone since then and have gained (as of yesterday) 35 pounds! ACK! Yesterday was my last of the latest round of prednisone so I am going to GNC to buy so L-Glutimine to help with the cravings that prednisone can cause to linger, and start day one of SB Phase 1.
I know a lot of that weight is water. I also know that because I was not allowed to exercise since august that my muscle tone has gone to fat. I am still not allowed to exercise.. but I plan to remedy that next week. I have an appt with an ENT to get a 2nd opinion on my sinuses and hopefully end this battle with prednisone!
I am looking forward to meeting you all and posting with you!
