Default 'm not exactly new, either!

I've done low carb before, but always let my love of sweets get in the way. Now, here I am, 70 years old and weigh the most I ever have in my life! My knees hurt, and I hate the way I look. Going to give it a try and get it right this time!

Hi and welcome, Buffy.

You probably already know this, but eating LC is great for helping to relieve inflammation, especially if you can figure out what foods aggravate those joints. I eliminated gluten a long time ago, and now I've cut way down on seed oils.

Sweets are a tough one: many people choose to avoid anything sweet-tasting; others (like me) have an arsenal of LC things on hand to enjoy guilt-free. I think we all have to experiment with our "craving-killers" to see what works.

Best of luck, and keep us posted.

Thank you! I am putting everything I have into this - I want to succeed. I don't want to be the little old lady who can't do things. I am going to look around for some good recipes so I don't get tired of what I am eating. I plan to stay away entirely from sweet things for a while so I can kill some of those cravings, but eventually will try some LC sweets. I will post often - I know it makes a difference to have a support system in place.
