Yeah, I'm here. Kicking it off with the fat fast and homeopathic hcg. Do I sound unenthused? Well, it's just that what works for the majority of people does not work for me. I can't just go along eating low carb and keep the weight off. I really wish I didn't have to do these severe things to get the weight off. Feeling cranky right now after my first day , but will try to improve my attitude, I promise.

Back after 6 years! Looking for buddies

So excited to find the success I once found here. Have gained some weight back -- mentalpause hit me hard

Think I have about 20 lbs to lose before my trip to Turks & Caicos in July 2014. I know I can do it here.

Anybody need a buddy?

PS: my stats and profile are all wrong and I need to figure out how to update them!

back again too!

Hey! I, too, am back again. A couple years of med school and stress through the wazoo and my hard work from 2003-2004 goes down the tubes.

Here to make things happen so that I start my MD life on the right foot (and can fit in all my awesome work clothes).

2014 is our year, people!

So determined

... To get back into low carb life again, and happy to see others with the same idea! Shulamite, I remember you from way back. I came over from ******* when that fell apart.
I managed to stay at goal for a good 5 years, but a new desk job and 50th birthday have packed on some pounds. It's been impossible to budge the pudge.
My plan is to start Induction with 2 shakes and one meal a day, keeping carbs and calories low to get some instant results. As I relearn my low carb tricks, I'll ease off the shakes and get back to real low carb, without feeling deprived.
Now I need to figure out how to make a ticker for my goal -- it's been so long!

I am recommitting too - I've been letting so much junk creep through for the past 2 months, I feel horrible!! Lots of physical issues cropped up just in that short amount of time. I was feeling so great after over 2 years of eating the best I possibly could, it's been a huge wake up call to see how quickly things can go down hill!! They need a head slap smiley.

Recommited two days ago. I am such a sugar junkie it is almost scary! Can't believe I didn't eat myself into a coma during the holidays....sugar was all I could think about. I hit rock bottom eating a whole bag of Carmel kisses and making myself so sick.

Today is day three....feeling better already....not better as much as normal. I love that food isn't the only thing on my mind.

here is to 2014.... May it treat us all well.

goal one...get though January with out cheating. 11 lbs. gone would make me happy too. Looking forward to meeting some new people, sharing our low carb life with each other...
