I think EFGT is for me....

Hi, I'm new to EFGT, I've been doing different low carb diets, but have been most successful when I was eating higher fat -- found this section of LCF and decided to introduce myself -- the below is a (too long...sorry) account of where I have been and where I want to go with my weight loss (translate FAT loss) journey.

Hi there -- I'm Elizabeth779. I started with low carb (high fat) less than 20 net carbs a day in January 2013 and lost 50 pounds getting to my lowest in late May with a weight of 248.

Since then, for many varied reasons (AND excuses), I've gone up and down from 253 to 263 and back about at least four times now.

I'm letting so many things side track my plans.......looking back I can see which ones were legitimate reasons, such as dealing with an elderly mother issue that was time consuming and emotionally exhausting....but even with that issue (it has resolved), I see that I was taking care of someone else instead of, in place of taking care of my eating and health issues. That I wasn't using as an excuse, I just had to get through that the best I could.

But getting off low carb, and then back on each time, it seems so hard each time to get back to being ON the low carb plan to the point the cravings go away.

So last week I was getting back on track -- oh wait a minute -- I was eating subway sandwiches and calling it low carb -- and sneaking candy from the candy dish at work -- I'll not kid myself BUTTTTT!!! then I came down with a cold and was sick from last Wednesday (and am starting to feel much better today). I have been eating CARB city while sick also.....

So, it's very late and it's 9-16-13 in five minutes....and starting now I'm back COMPLETELY on low carb.

I decided to get involved more with Low Carb Friends and Century Club to for some support on the LC WOE (and EFGT since I found you after Century Club)

My plan is to do what worked for me before -- I ate moderate net carbs (20 grams net carbs), and ate high fat. I ate about two cups of vegetables a day and about a 2 cup salad.

And as soon as I can walk around without having to have a kleenex in each hand I'll get back to the gym and improve my stamina again.

I started out needing to lose 150 -- I now need to lose 110 to get to goal.....so it's time to get it done.

So EFGT gals (and guys) I have read the stickies about the percentages, and changed the percentage numbers on my ****** software....I'm going to track this as I get started....I think adjusting to the numbers you suggested in the stickies will help a bunch.

THANK YOU for being here and I'm looking to getting to know you....Is there a general chat thread? I'll look around some more among EFGT threads....



Thanks for listening......

Hi spunkimama -- I agree -- time to find a spot, land, get to know some of the posters and soak up some mutual support and trade information.

So how long have you been on low carb?

welcome!
