Sneaking in a thank-you!
I know this doesn't really go in the "Recipe Help" section, but you guys are my main Lowcarb Friends so here goes...
Last Wednesday I re-started LC eating using recipes created by all of you wonderful cooks, bakers, and tweakers. In a little over one week, I've seen a huge change for the better in my mood, carb-cravings, joint aches, and energy, and to top it off, I've lost 11 pounds and my friend has lost 10! We just really cannot believe how much delicious food we can have eating lowcarb and lose weight as a bonus! Even my son is on the wagon with us! I've been collecting recipes off of these threads for years and have at least 5 binders printed out - just never fully commited to LC before now!
Thanks so much for all you guys do in creating wonderful recipes that allow us to get healthy and stay "on the wagon"! For the first time in my 54 years, I finally feel this is "do-able", and am so grateful for everyone that shares on these threads! Thanks again, and take care~
A balanced diet is chocolate in both hands.

Isn't this a great community, Elaine? It's so wonderful to share recipes here, and I love that when one person posts it, others chime in with tweaks and additions that can turn it into something entirely different!
I love LCFs - AND all the great cooks here!

This is really an amazing place.
I feel sorry for all those low carbers out there who have not found LCF. The food here is better than any of the prepackaged, store bought goodies out there.

I would have quit long ago if it wasn't for this place. I have learned so much. There are great inventive cooks. I don't miss my old life at all.
