Default Dieting, dieting, dieting

Hi All! I am a 42 year old married woman with no kids, just a fur baby. I have been dieting for the last 8 years. Before that I was skinny. My dad told me I would wake up in my 30s and be overweight and he was right!

I have done low carb, low fat, calorie counting! I have been trying to figure out what way of eating works for me. Atkins probably worked the best but it was pretty darn hard. I am thinking about giving it another try or doing the Carbohydrate Addict's Diet. (I am a carb addict!)

One of the reasons I am looking at lower carbs right now is because I have Rosacea. I read that some of it can be controlled through low carb.

I would love to meet some new friends who are interested in starting a new way of eating. I'd love to meet you!!

Welcome Windycity I think I'd go crazy if I tried Atkins or anything like that, but I've heard a lot of good things about going low carb!

Please look around and feel free to post wherever you're comfortable, and we have lots of different sub-forums and support groups you can join if you're interested. Hope you like it here!

Thanks for the posts! I agree, Atkins is hard. I did it for a year and kept off 40 lbs. (I lost the first 20 in 2 months)

I have an appointment with yet another dermatologist this afternoon and I am going to discuss a low carb diet to treat the symptoms of Rosacea. Some in the Rosacea community do Anti-inflammatory diets and Atkins is very similar.

I know it is a good way to lose weight. I just haven't figured out a way to do it for more than one year. When I stopped I exercised with a trainer and counted my calories but carbs made me want to eat more carbs.

I am also trying to get my husband to join me. He is trying to eat better. I also have to reread Atkins book. I need to get all the carby foods like low fat popcorn out of my house and fill it with good unprocessed carbs like veggies!

Think of it this way....... "Are you going to eat like this the rest of your life?"
