performance: gaining 0.5 lb a week

I am turning 43 in February with two great kids and a wonderful husband. Now that my 2nd child is getting ready to graduate I feel I really don't have any more excuses! However; due to medical issues and medicine I am truly having a rough time.

I lost 30 pounds over a year ago and I hope to do it again. I do think that being on Fatsecret has helped me before, so I hope it will help again.

Ice Cream Recommendations
Can anyone suggest a good low carb ice cream? I tried Skinny Cow and was shocked by the carbs. I am not sure if that Low Carb ice cream is worth the money.

I am really confused with the Net Carbs Counting
I am really confused with counting Carbs. Going on the internet isn't helpful. I want to take in 130- 150 grams of carbs a day. How much net carbs do I then need to lose weight? I can't tell if my net carbs should be a higher number then the carbs or lower.

Any experts out there that can help?

Need Help - Too much Fat in Blood
Thank you all. My dr told me that Fat in the blood is thick. It is when good and bad cholesterol is not balancing. Could lead to serious heart issues or stroke. I gained about 9 pounds in the stomach within 3 months due to steriods. The week we did the blood test i had surgery so it could be misleading but we are working as if it is true. I do a retest in 2 weeks.

I love the help/advice that you all have given to me. Mike thanks for the list. It is so helpful because I hate seafood. I lost 30 pounds last year just reading peoples post's and what they are doing. It is helpful because I can't find a diet that is working. Starting over seems to be harder this time around. So far tho the low-carb is doing good and I am going to the gym everyday.

Need Help - Too much Fat in Blood
I need advice. I found out that I am 30 pounds over weight and that I have too much fat in my blood. Dr. thinks it maybe a mistake so I have to take a retest. however; he put me on South Beach Diet. No way could I do that. I bought the books and researched it. There is nothing to eat. I know I need to cut carbs but that is confusing. I am going to the gym almost daily too but that doesn't work alone.

Has anyone had any success in a low carb diet? What tips can you give me?
