Smile New here

I was a member of another low-carb site...but became frustrated with the pop up ads that they are bombing us with. Can I come over here and play? I will be bringing a lot of my friends from the other site and we're a whole lot of fun....I promise

Hi, Pammy Jo Welcome!

Of course you can come play with us. Why not post a bit about yourself -- I see you're on Atkins and you've already lost quite a bit of weight Are you finding it easy going? Any previous diet disaster stories to share?

You might want to start a Journal. It's nice to have a place to post meals and nutrient totals -- keeps one accountable, and provides a record to check as we went along the LC road.

I hope you'll post often and let us know how you're doing. Friends welcome too, of course.

This is a cool site! There are so many options, etc. I think I'm going to like it here

I've been doing Atkins since Jan 1st 2001, I took a break while I moved for 5 months restarted in Aug 2001 and have lost 49 lbs so far.

I started lo-carbing in sept 2000, then stopped for a long time. Started back in 2001. I have lost 31 pounds, but would really like to lose 50 more, and then eventually work myself out of the 200 range.

Hi me-again, hi rose!

Great to have you on deck!

You should each start yourselves a journal so that people here can get to know you.

The folks here are great...loaded with info...I hope you guys brought some info over from the other site too!!

All the best!

KC

Well I won't advertise which site I just came from...but we had a very good supportive group over there. The pop up ads just became too over-whelming for us, so we're all looking for a new home.

Our little group was known to post mainly on the playground (similiar to this lounge, maybe?) and we kept a daily thread with a weekly weigh-in there to keep us accountable. We believe in tough love...and when one of us would fall off the wagon and cheat...we would kick that persons butt.

I have been doing Atkins on & off since Oct of 2000...but my restart this past December has been the most successful so far. I have more knowledge about this WOL than I did when I was doing it before. I also have more determination and I found a lot of support in my friends (that you will eventually meet) that has made me be more accountable.

I hope our sense of humor is also welcome over here...because we are known to be clowns at times. Thanks for your warm welcome.

I see that my friends RoseWaddle, jaxie and me-again have already shown up, too. Hi guys

Hi all!
I came over from the other site too. This site looks great! Looks like it would take hours to explore everything.
I started Atkins in June and have lost 53 pounds. Still have quite a ways to go.
Can't wait to visit the "kitchen" board to see if I can find some new recipes that we didn't have at our old site.
Have a great night everyone!

Hi, Wingnut! Welcome

You're almost halfway there! Congratulations. I love your biography line in your profile. There speaks a committed low carber.

I'm glad you've joined us -- you can give us all some tips As I suggested above, you might want to start a journal. It makes it easier to keep track of where you are and how you got there.

Welcome -- please post often and tell us how you're doing


Could I suggest that if more people come from the other site, you start a new thread to introduce yourself? We have plenty of threads -- no shortage here And that way it will be easier to find you later
