following: Erin's Low on Carbs/High on Life Diet
performance: losing 6.1 lb a week

I am a 20 something event planner that has been struggling with her weight since graduating high school. In 2004, I lost 60 lbs in a very unhealthy way and ended up gaining it back plus 20 lbs more. Because of the weight gain, I was starting to have health issues and I decided on January 4th, 2011 at 230 lbs. that enough was enough.

I have changed to a low carb lifestyle and am extremely active. Though the weight isn't falling off as quickly as I thought, I am still very proud of myself.

I have the world's most amazing boyfriend (who happens to be a chef!) and the sweetest cavalier king charles spaniel in the world. I live in a beautiful area in the panhandle of Florida and work in the hospitality industry as a hotel conference services manager.

Question on how to insert exercise...
I record my 12 minute ab workout that I do in the house after running as a Calisthenic(Light Home Exercise). I think that it is pretty accurate on the kCal burned. I will say that when I am doing cardio such as running or walking, I get three different results from FS, runkeeper, and my Nike+ program on my ipod so I don't really know which one is the most accurate as there is a quite a difference between the three. I would also keep doing the 2mile/30 minute walking program and you could enter that as Walking-4mph, because that is the rate you are going. If you did that program for one whole hour, you would have walked 4 miles. Keep up the good work!
