I saw the mention of www.lowcarbcafe.com on your blog. I'll have to check it out. My diet isn't low carb, but it's inspired by low-carb diets. Instead of cutting out carbs, I switched to whole grains. I completely cut out processed sugars and flours.
I started in July 2004 and lost 37 pounds by November, but then gained back 25 through the following September because I quit the diet for the holidays and didn't manage to start up.
My problem this week was a Halloween party that I'd been looking forward to for weeks because I was planning to eat tons of junk food. And I did just that. I'd pretty much planned on not losing any, but I didn't expect to gain 2.5 pounds. Oh, well.
I don't have any problems with sweets. I can take them or leave them...Yes, envy me!! LOL
The only issue I have is with salty foods..esp. chips..corn chips! My evil boyfriend was eating a bag of corn chips right in front of me! (yes, he is going to go to hell for that!).
I wanted them soo badly!! When he finished...I went over to where he was watching a football game looked at him and said, "hey baby".. I made like I was going to kiss him and I sucked all the salt from his lips!! I know total yuck..but at least I got a taste of what I wanted...lol
Good luck with the diet!
If you have a chance check out the cafe...its a great bunch of people!
