Welcome! And congrats on the 4 lbs! You'll find folks on here like me that are approaching 60 days, and others that are approaching 6 years in low carb land. This site may be a bit bias, but you will find the general consensus is low carb works, works well, and is 'easy' as diets go.

Welcome Linda. I have been eating low carb 20 or less carbs since February.... So about 7 month's .

I absolutely love my new way of eating. I only found the 1st 2 weeks difficult in learning the ropes of shopping and what was allowed and what wasn't.

Now it is just automatic and quite easy actually.

Congrats on your progress so far !!

Hi. Great loss. It gets easier once you get past the first 2 weeks. LC just becomes the norm. At least it did for me. These forums are fantastic. Tons of info. Good luck on your journey.
