Welcome. We hope you find the information here helpful. 2011 was a lot of work trying to get the pounds off. And I did! I went from 220 on January 1, 2011 was down to 156 January 3, 2012. 2012 I was down to 145 in May. But after vacations and deaths and hurricanes and holidays I was back up to 170 on January 1, 2012. Ah, well. It happens.
So now it's back on the wagon. The low-carb wagon of course. 2012 was, if nothing else, a year of learning. I read a lot. Listened to low carb interviews and pod-casts. I've left low-carb junk food behind and have started embracing "real food". Let's face it, substitutes are a crutch, one I don't need any more. I can walk this road on my own now.
It's paying off. I'm down 9 pounds since January 1 and will keep fighting to become healthier. It's going to be difficult. I've yo-yo dieted all my life so my metabolism is really low, but I'm determined.Hoping to get more shows out in 2013. I've learned a lot in 2102.
My name is Jes and I'm a low-carber. My husband Tom and our two sons are definitely not. Can I stay low carb while surrounded by their carb laden goodies? You bet! And in 2013 I'm going to keep up the fight.
