It's y'all - a contraction of you + all
Then there's the whole "y'all all" thing!
Yes, Southern speech is complex

Ha, that is very interesting. I guess "ya'll" instead of "y'all" is also a Texas thing.

Apparently "ya'll" is is for the more sophisticated red necks lol

Faulkner, Hemingway and McCullers use the ya'll spelling

But it is funny cause I have never seen it spelled y'all. Then again, it isn't too often that you see it spelled I reckon.

But the "I tell you what" thing is for real. When I was in the Army 30ish years ago I was talking to a guy from north of the red river somewhere and I said that. "I tell you what!" and he tilted his head waiting on me to tell him what

Hi Everyone! I just found this forum when I was searching "nut cravings" so it sounded like I better sign up with you guys, since I do live a low carb lifestyle.

My name is Ann, I live in the Great White North, Canada. I have been living South Beach off and on for about 8 years. When I'm off, the weight piles back on like no tomorrow, when I'm on, well .... you know........

This time I have been on since January when my doctor, the nerve of her...LOL, proceeded to tell me....."Ann, you are borderline diabetic, your blood pressure, cholesterol and weight are not good". Oh crap I thought.....I guess I been off low carb for too long...... so here I am, 2.5 months later, and 30 pounds lighter (already).

So these are things I have had to come to terms with.....my eating habits are as bad as an alcoholic's drinking habits or a drug abuser's habit......no different, the cravings are the same, and truthfully the end results can be the same. South Beach is not a diet, it is a lifestyle.

So while I still have another 30 - 50 pounds to go, I am on the right track. Will I falter? Oh most likely, but the important thing is getting back on the horse, so to speak.

I hope to find good information and good support here....... and wish me luck!

Sugar= my crystal meth aswell but has complete opposites of symptoms , makes u fat not skinny, reduces libido, both make you un attractive but beauty is in eye of the beholder. But worse thing is every shop sells and advertise sugar products and dog the bounty hunter won't be able to lecture you on sugar

What I meant more is that like the other two addictions, if I don't smarten up the end result could be heart failure etc. specially since heart problems run in the family

Lots of good health reasons for moderate exercise, and in some cases it can help with weight loss if you build muscle mass, but other than that there isn't a lot of benefit as far as weight loss is concerned.
Thank you for your post..I am on week 3 now..lost 11 ibs. the first week..gained 1 lb on week 2...stayed the same so far this week...BS are down to near normal so I am happy for that..cutting back on my insulin, humalog and lantus so all in all I am ok with it...I would like to see the scale go down... I feel great, so that in it's self makes me happy...I know I didn't put on the weight overnight and I'm in this for the long haul...I am 66 years old and less than 5' tall..I really thank you for the support, I feel better and not so worried about not exercising.

Hello!

Hi everyone!

I've been reading lcf for a while now, it comes up every time I do a google search for anything low-carb related, so I figured it was high-time I joined up and got some support. I'm on day 5 of Atkins induction. I weigh 200 pounds and I'm 5' tall. I have a little girl who will be 5 this summer, and I gained a ton of weight during pregnancy, got a lot of it off, and then gained it all back! So here I am! Last night, I was nauseas but I'm hoping that's from this 'induction flu' meaning, I'm probably doing things right? Fingers crossed. I'd like to lose around 60 pounds total. I hadn't craved anything so far - until today! I am craving chocolate somethin' fierce today!

Hey Everyone,
I am new to LCF; I decided a few weeks ago to try a low carb lifestyle after watching "FatHead." I am three weeks in and lost 18 lbs so far. I am a dad of two boys and more than anything just trying to get myself healthy again so I can be around for them for a while. Looking forward to losing with everyone else!

I posted this over in the Medi-specific forum, but I will post it here, too.

Hi everyone,

I've been poking around this site since the first time I did the Atkins diet, in 2003. I've had a series of successes and setbacks, like just about everyone else on this planet. I tried Medi Weightloss last year with wonderful results, but I moved, and there's no Medi office anywhere near me. Moving was a great hindrance to my progress, and I got back on the junk food wagon, unfortunately. I started my program again on 4/1, following the eating plan that I did when I was active with Medi, mishmashed with what I know from following Atkins. Today is day 4, and I am tired, but I know it's worth it.

Just wanted to pop in and say hello to everyone.

Hello everyone!

I've had a lot of success with Atkins in the past. I always swore I would stick with it forever, but little by little over the years, I've digressed. My weight is now higher than ever and I feel miserable. So I'm getting back to basics and starting induction again. My biggest downfall is emotional eating. Can anyone relate?

I'll be checking here as often as possible, as there is so much amazing knowledge on the boards. Here goes....

Hello!

Hello everyone! my name is Shelly and this is my third Atkins attempt in about 10 years.

I don't really remember where it went wrong the first time partly because i can't remember that far back but I think it was poor planning. I only studied the induction phase because all I cared about was losing weight quicky and when I lost it I went back to my old over indulgent ways and surprise, surprise..

My second attempt 6 or so years ago I was kind of dumb and as soon as I stalled for a couple days I gave up completely.

Now I'm optimistic and think 3rd time will be the charm * crosses fingers *

I'm going to do things differently like learn recipes and cook more so I don't just have scrambled eggs and bacon three times a day until I can't look at eggs for a year. I'm also going to spend more time reading the forums and reading success stories for encouragement.

Well, off to the recipes board!

Nice to meet you all

I've just realized I've been somewhat rude and not introduced myself

my name is Deb (duh), i'm 50 and I live in the Hunter Valley in Australia, two kids, great husband, horses, chickens, cats, demented dog, psychotic ferret.

i've actually been doing low carb for some time, i first tried it back in 2002 and lost about 20kgs, but the program i was on was low carb and low fat and i just couldnt keep it up, i started to feel unwell and went back to eating whatever and put all the weight back on. I decided it just didnt suit my metabolism.

fast forward to three years ago and my husband was diagnosed with type two diabetes, i decided to try low carb again for hiim after reading Dr Bernsteins diabetes book. He's now been doing it for 2 1/2 years and is pretty much cured, his diet included a lot more fat so i decided to revisit it for me

I was about 112kgs when i started, its been about a month and i'm down to 101 (just cant crack that 100 arrgggg!). i feel much better this time, i havent hit that wall of feeling unhealthy like i did last time and i'm getting more used to it, this will be a permanent life change

i've done so much research in the last three years into diabetes, statins and low carb i finally decided to bite the bullet and i'm going back to Uni in two weeks to get a diploma in nutritional medicine. It will be a big career change because i'm a chef even more funny, i'm a specialist pastry chef!...so i've spent half my life shoving cakes and pastries into people and i'll spend the second half telling them to stop

so thats me, my pet subject is statins and the cholesterol myth, yep really party girl thats me

I first heard of low carb through a little book I picked up at the checkout counter at a grocery store in 1965. It was called "The Eating Man's Diet." Don't remember name of author. It worked, I shed the excess pounds I needed and then went back to my old habits.
In the 90s I revisited low carb with Atkins program. Again lost significent weight then went back to old habits. Repeated that in about 2004.
Last December I got medical report that indicated I was pre-diabetic. I have a number of diabetic friends and have witnessed several succumb to the disease in the last few years. I was instantly determined not to follow that path and went carb free cold turkey immediately! I have lost 25 lbs so far and am about half way to my goal weight. Using guide in Gary Taube's "Why We Get Fat, and What to Do about It."
This time is different. I know I can never go back to the old pattern so its not a "diet" but a permanent lifestyle. Glad to be allowed to share with you all.
