I think most of us probably came to a low carb lifestyle, and LCE, because we wanted to lose weight. I've come across a few fortunate souls that discovered LCE at the beginning of our weight journy, but I suspect that most of us have tried and failed at many diets before discovering this way of life. As I read posts and talk to people in the non-virtual world, I keep hearing about how hard it is to low carb when spouses and children are constantly consuming carbs, junk food, and sugar, sugar,

Here it is January, and most of us are looking to renew our commitment to low carb eating, losing weight, etc. Even if we didn't crash and burn over the holidays. For years I hated January because of the New Year's Resolutions, weight loss plans, quick diet news, fitness promises, and the endless sales of stuff to organize, lose weight, clean up, etc. etc. It seemed false to only worry about it in the beginning of the year, and I had so little success anyway-- why make a resolution to lose weight

As a child we always ate SLOW food. We lived on the farm, and my parents didn't have enough money to eat out much.

By the time we moved back I suspect they were sick of junk food and happy to eat what we could grow.
The vegetables and fruits were amazing, and we raised our own beef and eggs

I sing going down the halls in school (and get shushed sometimes, lol); I smile, I laugh a lot and act silly, I am usually cheerful and I hope, encouraging to others. It takes a lot to make me mad-- I am willing to compromise, bend with the wind, work with others on their non-negotiables...Practically the "jolly fat girl" without

Well, I am back! Missed you all.
First of all I had the worst flu I have had in YEARS. I don't think it was swine flu, or whatever they are calling it right now, lol. But it was almost as bad. Back in the 70's I had the Swine flu and it was AWWWFUL! One morning I was 16 years old, strong and healthy, if nuts, and jumping off my roof to practice "tuck and rolls" for the skydive I was planning to make later in the evening when it started to cool off. I was wearing a coverall and
