How many carbs qualify for low carb? Personally I can get away with 30 to 40, but I think it would be whatever makes you feel good and if you're continuing to lose weight. I don't do strict Atkins. I find it too restrictive. Smile

i never thought about the extra 40 lbs response. I'll use that next time. Thanks.

Oh wow..nobody has posted! I was trying to do low carb. I felt great, my clothes fit nice. I then got a bunch of grief from everybody about how hard it is on your kidneys etc. I went back to how I used to eat, and sure enough, my weight is back up. I'm doing Low Carb!1 I don't care what anybody says. I'm not big on recipes and planned out meals (maybe that's my downfall). I'll figure it out. Does anyone else do low carb? Maybe we can do this together.

Not posting much but following along as well. Yesterday I had to dig out some jeans that I had put away because they were too tight. They fit now! So does my scuba suit I bought when I could barely zip it - that was my impetus to lose weight. I can zip it now though it's still too tight. I figure in 10 more lbs it will fit more comfortably.

I feel better without sugar although I still have a lot of pain in my joints that supposedly would go away without sugar, but it hasn't.

Hot flashes have pretty much disappeared except for the early-AM one that shows up like clockwork...

That's great! It always feels better to have clothes that fit nice, not too tight or too baggy.

I'm so lucky! I hate to brag but I have never, ever had hot flashes. It must be a hereditary thing because my older sister didn't either. Hope I pass that on to my daughter.
