Well, at this point, this is my first foray into blogging, so we’ll see how it goes. I have set up this blog to help mostly my family, but also many of the people I talk to about living a Low Carb Lifestyle everyday! I am not a doctor, or any other type of medical professional. Actually, I do marketing for golf courses…so, you ask, how do I get off thinking I’m an expert on Low Carb Living?
Well, actually, I’m not.
However, I have been successfully living low carb for over a year now, and have found it to be the first and only “diet” that I was able to convert into a lifestyle. I had tried Low Calorie, Weight Watchers, Crazy Workouts, Body Cleanses…everything. It wasn’t until I committed to going “hard core” low carb approximately 4 months before my wedding that I lost the weight.
I lost 20 pounds in the first month of my new lifestyle, and an additional 10 over the next 3 – I have kept that weight off since November of 2007. While Low Carb living isn’t for everyone, it has worked for me. I have combined numerous plans/ideas/inputs to create a diet that works for me…and has worked for my family members, and friends who have also committed.
The beauty of my version of Low Carb living is that you CAN cheat – not all the time, by any means, but enough so taht you don’t feel deprived. I think you’ll be surprised after you get going on it that you may not even want to cheat as often as you make think!
Anyway, stay tuned as this site develops…hopefully you find it helpful. Let me know your comments, struggles, successes, and what you think about my recipes.
I hope that you find this helpful – I know that I enjoyed reading other Low Carb blogs when I first embarked on this journey a couple of years ago.
