I'm new to the forum

Hello all!
I am new to the Lowcarb friends boards. I am currently living in the United Arab Emirates, but I am planning on returning back to the Good ol' U.S. or A. In July! I cant wait! Since Ive been here, my weight has yoyo'd up and down/ Currently, it is at a high point. I have done Atkins in the past with good results. I want to begin again, but I could use some support. I have about 35-50 lbs to lose. Since I am over 50, I thought this would be a great place to start. I hope to make some great friends here as well.

Welcome, Tubby, but what are you going to call yourself when you have lost the weight ?

Tammie be patient with yourself and the life style eating changes you are going to make.
Don't be in a hurry but just stay steady at it.
