I am updating my bio...

I have seen Maintenance - for a short season, and then Life took me back on a rollercoaster of weight gain. Depression, self-medicating with food, and soothing my grief - all played a role. But primarily...I gave up for awhile.

Well, I'm back - and making the necessary changes to shift into a Lifestyle I can live with. I don't like being overweight. And I AM willing to change it.

If you need help or have questions...please don't hesitate to contact me and ask. If I can...I will be happy to help!

Just saying hi
Hey David - Welcome!! Whole foods is a great place to start. I have an adult daughter who is vegan (for the last 3+ years) - so if you don't find others here who can help - send me any questions and I will ask her for you.. and get back to you. - Changing one's life for better health - TOTALLY WORTH IT!

For those of you on Low-Carb diets
that is totally your opinion - and you're certainly entitled to it. I just do not agree with you. And found your offering of your opinion to be rude and condescending. But that's just me - floating back into the clouds now!

For those of you on Low-Carb diets
Rick - the only MIM I know about is: A MIM (Muffin in a Minute) -a low-carb, high -fiber, Induction-friendly delight that you can microwave in a coffee cup. Note: All of these recipes use flaxmeal, which is ground flaxseed. -

I don't know if this person was doing something else, or if you misunderstood - I will go back and re-read her initial entry. My apologies if she is eating cake and you were just trying to help her.

Groups - Anyone in One?
I joined LCHF (Low Carb High Fat) - not sure how active that one is either.

Groups - Anyone in One?
Liz - are you in a 'group' called Low Carb - or are you just saying you are following low carb? - This site has the ability to have smaller 'focused' groups - but they don't seem to be utilized that much anymore.
