Hi Everyone, I hope you don’t mind if I join you? I joined KK awhile back, paid my $60, but never posted on the website. I have been trying to get back into low-carbing, and it wouldn’t stick. I’d try reading the Forums, but never felt like posting. Then I started reading about all the controversy, and I’m glad I hadn’t gotten into it. I guess I’m going to look at the $60 as a life lesson fee — maybe I should do a little more research into things before spending my $$$!

I did Atkins about 15 years ago and was in the best shape of my life for about 5 years. Then I met my dear honey, who at that time was also in the best shape of his life. Unfortunately, we both fell off the wagon and over the last 10 years, we have both put on a ton of weight. The minute I stopped low carbing, the weight just piled on and I am now at the heaviest I have ever been. Over the years, we have had a number of challenges, the most recent being losing my beloved mother in December, 2006. I KNOW that low carbing is the thing that works best for me, and the thing that I feel my best on…but I find it so hard to get back on the right track. I was really glad to read Jimmy say that he did not think Atkins was a one shot program, because I had read that before and was really starting to believe it was true.

A recent Oprah magazine article stated that online support has been proven to be essential to successful weightloss — and I hope that is true, because it seems like a wonderful group of people is on this site. I am planning to succeed and have committed to starting back on low carb October 1st — I know I should probably just start now, but I really have to get my mind (and my cupboards) into the right frame of mind, and I just feel like that is the right starting point for me.

Sorry this is so long, and I am looking forward to getting to know people here.
