Default Anyone still here?

I hate not seeing anyone post anything here.

I've been here since 2003. I have lost and gained the same pounds over and over. sad..... But I am now 26 months from turning 50. Ugh, 50.

I had major surgery last December. And it's looking like I might have another one here soon. I suffer from chronic pain (hence the surgeries) and I know I need to try and lose this weight before the wonderful politician's who think they are doctors, take away my pain medicine.

So I know I am gonna need help getting back into the swing of things. Who's here? Anyone around still fighting carbs and need a friend?

Default Still here

Hi Deb.....I am still here as are a lot of folks, but I think folks just check in and read but don't post. That is what I am guilty of sometimes........I am fighting carbs still and sometimes don't do a very good job. I am guilty of falling off the wagon. However I have not gained weight......this past year I have lost weight.....about 20 pounds, but I went up a bit before the recent loss so I've lost more than 50 pounds since I started this a few years ago. I lost most of my weight in a couple of years, then stalled out because I was on and off the diet. I am now starting to get strict again and am checking in for support. So, take heart and keep coming back and posting. I will be here and so will others...they just need to wake up!!! I need to lose another 50-70 pounds to reach my goal and I would appreciate the company!

I'll check in...

I lost when I stopped fighting. I am over 50 and have maintained 100+ lb weight change since about October 2016

http://downhaul.com/lowcarb/daily.txt

Instead of "Ug, 50" or "Yeah, 50!" I'm learning to feel, "hmmm, 50, interesting"

And "fighting carbs" is like fighting to stay young. There is nothing to fight. We are born, grow old, fall sick and eventually die. Spending energy fighting against a riptide you don't get to enjoy the view as you are struggling against it back to the the beach. If you stop swimming and let it carry you out you will find calm and another way back to the beach that's an easier swim.

For me low carb eating is the path to the easier swim back and I get to enjoy the "ride of life" and am curiously relaxed about things as they come up and go away, good and bad.

For me it's about eating certain way for the sake of itself and the results it seems to produce. It's not transactional, it's transformational.

I wish you well

Hi everyone! I have been coming to this site for so many years its more like family than strangers.


Like I said before, I started here a few years ago.... and at the time I figured I needed to lose about 100-105 lbs. At this point in my life losing 20 would make things a little easier on my poor body.

Thank you for all the reply's. I think we could be great support for each other, including you Ms Arielle! You are an honorary member now! I'll try and keep the conversations flowing, please join in where you can!

What plan is everyone following? Are you still following the same one you started this journey with?

Basically mine is similar to when I started but I'm more liberal with carbs and and am doing less IF then when I was losing weight at a rapid pace. Works for me and is easy to foillow.

I started on Atkins last year which I still follow in as far as the set out low carb veggies. Plus OWL foods -- I try to keep my carbs under 35g a day -- somedays it's under 20g
I added IF after a looong slow month in the third month I think it was and haven't looked back (yet) hehe

I'm here, in my seventies, losing very slowly and enjoying the process. I'm eating far more carbs than when I started, because I want to enjoy the process. At this rate, I might not live long enough to get to enjoy the result, and that'll be okay too.

I've been here on and off since 2003 or 2004 as well, lost 100+ and then gained it back. I had bypass surgery in December 2017 and am following a low carb regime post-op. It hasn't been easy but the results are great and with this tool, it's much easier to stay on track because if I don't, there are physical consequences.

I've relost 100 pounds and am still working on the last 20+. I had the surgery just over a week before I turned 65 .. a gift to myself!!

I'm still here. My top weight, that I know of, was 276. (My current goal is where I was at the beginning of the year.) I'd love to get below 176.

I've been in a stressful situation caring for my mother, who died recently at 92. There are always stressors in life, but that was a unique one that kept getting worse, until it ended. I'm hoping that now I can devote myself to a better effort more consistently. I lost 60some pounds last year but gained most of it back.

So, here I go again.

I understand that stress, JLx. My mother is 98 and always a worry ... still living on her own but really not capable of it at this point. I hope your refocus will bring you back to your stride and help get the regained weight back off.
