Default Eastern Shore, too!

Hello, Piddy...where do you live on the Eastern Shore? I am in St. Michaels. Anyone else on this side of the Bay?

I don't mind driving to Annapolis or Baltimore to meet a few other LC'ers for lunch or dinner....my naturally skinny friends and svelte husband just don't get this WOE...I would love to hold an adult conversation with people who are going through the same trials and tribulations as myself.

Look forward to hearing from you......

April

Cool Eastern Shore - not poised for growth!

Let's meet at Caroll's gas station for a plate of fries....
You probably pass me going to Easton... or maybe at Acme looking for pork rinds....

Hi Squintz. I'm in Davidsonville, Maryland. It's near Annapolis.

Any other Marylanders out there in LC land?

greetings!
Is anybody still out there? I see moist of these are pretty old....but still appropriate. I'm a LC-er from Columbia but work in Hyattsville, Rockville and Upper Marlboro (the courthouses). I've been lc-ing for about a month or six weeks now. I'm enjoying it immensely. I realized I CAN COOK! I've dropped 23 lbs so far. I'd love to have an online, and perhaps even realtime buddy....

Give me a holler!

Julie

Hi, Julie--

I'm definitely still out here. I've been following Atkins for almost 2 years, but having problems with sugar addiction since last Christmas--it was the cookies that kicked it off. I'm climbing back on the wagon, with lots of prayer.

Sounds like you're doing great--congratulations!! I'd be delighted to be your pal, maybe even get together in person sometime. I live in Timonium, work in Pikesville--not too far from Columbia...

Hi Jannie , hi Journal...

Thanks for your encouraging words. That would be great...having a fellow lc-er to encouarge and uplift one another. I peruse your success link and am totally pumped for you...and me!

I think I was a bit obsessive about the scale...checking my weight WAY too often....but you know how God has a way of dealing with us when we take our eyes off of Him....the scale it going whacko. I started at 293. I wasweighing 270 last weekend. This week I have weighed in at 305, 312, 324, 298, 270, 260.5. The scale is jumpin' all over the place. Finally my oh-so-smart son says, "Mom, I think it's broken." Yeah, well, at a minimum. Broken or demon-possessed! I will forego the scale until I get back to the doctors a month or so from now. I keep telling y kids not to worry about the "number' on the scale but rather rely on how they feel and how their clothes fit. Time to dance to the tune I'm playing, huh?

Gotta run....

God bless,

Julie

Greetings red. Welcome aboard. I haven't been doing the LC wol nearly as long as many of these great encouragers but I do know that if you simply commit to yourself to stay away form the carbs for three or four days (and you're anything like me), the cravings will subside INCREDIBLY! I have found it gets much easier, especially if you get into the cooking. I also belong to a couple htt groups (hold-the-toast) and get some great encouragemnet and recipes from them. I love cooking out of the Dana Carpender books and find a lot of things become family favorites really quickly.

On a more personal note. I also lost my dad through illness, watching him fade away. If you would like to talk, feel free to email me privately. We were told my dad had about three months to live when he was diagnosed with throat cancer. He lived 11 months. He was ready to go the last few months. Very tired. That was 13 years ago. Six months ago, I lost my mom. It's still very difficult to accept. Again, if you'd just like to talk...rotterx3~aol.com.

God bless,

Julie

Apparently not alot of us from MD on this thread, but add me to the list. I live in Rockville and work in Kensington.
I have been LC'ing since 12Feb05, so just less than a month. I've made good progress, but still have quite a distance to go.
I moved to this area from OH last year and other than folks I work with, don't have any other acquaintences in the area.
Stop by my Journal and say hello.
Ted

Hi All!
I agree with you, Ted, that there must not be too many MD LC-ers on this thread. I'm in Southern Maryland -- St. Mary's County. I've been on a low-carb diet (35% carbs / 45% protein / 20% fat) since Feb. 6th and started the Atkins diet only 4 days ago. During my month on the former diet, I lost 5 pounds, and on the Atkins diet, I've lost 2 pounds so far. It comes and goes, so perhaps it's just water weight (sigh).
Anywho . . . count me in on this thread.
