Hello all, I am a disgruntled mid 40 something, with a passion for cakes, chocolate and smoothies. In an attempt to lose 16lbs in 16 weeks, I seemed to have gained more than I started with.

I am new to low carbing, but struggling to find foods that I like to eat. I have weighed myself today and put on another 4lb so am feeling a little despondent.

Well hello there
Just keep on keeping on! Set small attainable goals and once you reach them, set new ones. Progress, no matter how small....is progress! Seems like you are on the right track.
