Hey there "ItsTheWooo"!

I am SO glad to "find" you again.

I read your posts on one of the other low-carb forums.

You are one of the reasons that I decided to give low-carb another try.

Your handle on the carb issue and how detrimental it is to some of us really impressed me. It impressed me so much that I made up an entire file called "ItsTheWooo" filled with your advice. When I'm having a hard time, one of the things that I tend to do is just read through your threads again. (BTW, the CR debate is still going strong! And who could ever forget "The Bear." )

I had no idea that you were on this board.

Just wanted to let you know that you really amaze me. I value your input. Everyone might not agree with it, but I value it. If what you advise does not work for me, then it just does not work for me. But your knowledge of low-carb should not be dismissed regardless.

Listen to this woman, people. She knows what she is talking about.

I am really glad to see you on this board. I know how busy you must be.

Annie

Yeh, I know, Elizabeth. That avatar is tooooo funny. Unfortunately, we have all come to discover--the hard way--that it is most definitely true.

Her last post on the other board was in November of last year. I was afraid that she had succumbed to the holidays and that I'd never see another "ItsTheWooo" post again.

I was just thrilled to see her again and SO glad that she kept her same avatar so that she was recognizable.

This board is just too fun!

I hope she sees this before it gets lost. Things move so quickly on this board, it makes my head spin.

Her transformation is amazing (saw her across the boards on that 'other' site) and I felt she never gave herself enough credit for morphing into the young woman she's become. Wish I'd done it young, the way she has! Bravo, Woo.

Hi Wooo!

Here is just one of my favorite ItsTheWooo quotes: "Yes, as a student we learn such garbage about how to feed and educate diabetics. I remember one type II, eating breakfast...came in a bit later and shes like 'I just got the most overwhelming cravings for coconut cookies...and I'm thinking "that's probably because your pancreas is pouring out a lot of insulin right now to try to allow the incredible amount of glucose from your breakfast to diffuse into body muscle and fat cells...which is decreasing the catabolism of fat for energy, which is creating an energy-deficient state sensed by your hypothalamus, which in turn metabolically hormonally responds as if in an underfed state, which is in turn making you crave high calorie foods.'"

Now, THAT is the Wooo!

You are and will be the best example for your clients/patients, and you have understood the carb connection to obesity so much better than any of us could ever explain it!

At times, can you even believe how far you have come?

I am SO glad to see you here. I know that you are very busy, but please post when you can. Your posts are always such a learning experience for us.

Annie

Huh...I would have just said "Really...how odd?"

I like her answer better.

Hey guys
I was waiting for my pics to get approved but they never did so I uploaded them to photobucket instead.

Thanks again for this thread... I always feel really really down and guilty about gaining weight in school... all the time, it is a little nagging thought there. It's nice to be reminded that I am still considered to be "thin" and "successful" in regard to losing weight (even if I did gain 5 pounds)
