    Well, I just finished my first week and I've lost 5 pounds! That went much better than I had hoped for. I was just hoping for a pound or two at the most.

    I haven't been keeping up with the excercise part much, and I've been eating whenever I want, as much as I want, just keeping carbs under 20 net each day. In fact, I just polished off a pound of bacon and 2 eggs.

    Each day I eat some vegetables. A can of asparagus or spinach usually, either one is under 10 net carbs.

    On top of that I'm feeling better than I have for quite a while.

    Don't get me wrong..... I really am craving some carbs. Macaroni & Cheese Spirals, Glazed Donuts, Pecan Pancakes with Maple syrup, dark chocolate ice cream, a Dr. Pepper, a mounds bar or 4.... Oh what I'd give :)

    One thing I've learned so far:
    Keep some things around you can snack on and don't have to cook. Cooked ham slices, boiled eggs, cracklins, some Muenster cheese. I boil a dozen eggs at a time and then put 'em in the fridge.

    Awesome News! Congratulations on sticking to it AND the 5 lbs!!!!!!!!!

    If you're sticking with the low/no carbs, watch out for peas, carrots, beets, and corn....high sugar veggies....

    Congrats to YOU! I don't think I could handle "all of the carb counting" (personally) But hey, whatever it takes everyone to meet their goals. In just this last week I lost 5 pounds from my new job... as it's very very PHYSICAL.

    My fingers are so crossed for you, & don't forget that it's all about "BEING HEALTHY & FEELING GOOD!" Keep up the good work & we are rootin' for ya! ;)
