Newbie but NOT!!!

Hey everyone. I wanted to introduce myself.
I am not new to lcf or low carb but i havent been on the the boards in a while. I lost over 100lbs about 9 yrs ago eating lowcarb and have been a member of the boards for years. I have kept the weight off but since i have turned 40 weight is coming back on no matter what i do.
So for the last couple of years i have been trying everything!! It has gotten to be so frustrating! From higher carb to vegetarian to really low calorie...too much!! Always basically eating healthy though, organic, primal, not many grains at all. But i am still putting weight on. I have gained almost 20 lbs in the last 2.5 yrs. It is killing me!! I also workout almost every day. I have for years. I lift weights, run, kickbox, walk. I'm pretty active but i do have a sedentary job.
So i have come back to what i know works. Especially after reading "why we get fat". It just makes sense. Some people just cant eat a lot of carbs. even good carbs. So im going to try NK. I want to get myself into really good ketosis. I feel like im starting to be in ketosis. Dry mouth, stinky pee!! I have been upping my fat the last few days. I tell you what i am really enjoying it. I have been depriving myself for way too long. not eating fat, eating just otns of fruits and veggies. This is being great!! I have already lost 2 lbs so Im hopeful.
I dont want to make this too long. I gotta get to work but just wanted to say HI and i may have a lot of questions!!!
I also know my hormones are playing a part in all of this too so that is a factor.
I look forward to getting to know you guys and being more active on the boards.
have a great day!! I will be off and on all day at work when i can too.
I'm so glad to be back to what i really know!!!
New grandbaby! Life is good!<img src=images/smilies/hugs_2011.gif border=0 alt= title=Hugs class=inlineimg />

Welcome back! You mentioned hormones...have you had your thyroid checked? And not just TSH but a full thyroid panel (TSH, free T3, free T4, anti-TPO at a minimum.)

No i havent, i hate to say that i havent even been to the gyno in years. The one i used to use retired and i have just been too lazy to find another one. It has been almost 5 yrs since i have been to the gyno. the only doc i have been to was the one taht removed my gall bladder.
I know i need to do that. I know things are messed up in my body and i need to go but time just hasnt allowed it right now.
