Wink Newbie Saying Hi From NC!

Hi Everyone!
My name is Lora and I am from NC. I am following a low carbohydrate diet per my doctor's advice. Hopefully it will not only help control my PCOS (which is why she put me on it), but also help get the 60+ pounds I've gained off.
Just 7 short years ago, I was 137lbs and a size 3/5. Withing 2 years I ballooned up to over 200 lbs and a size 18 with NO changes to my diet or activity level. After a few trips to the doctor and a lot of blood work, we found out I have PCOS. Carbs are the enemy! LOL
The doctor put me on low-carb to help prevent diabetes. Hopefully it will have another side effect of weight loss. It's going to be hard since I am addicted to my sweet tea, popcorn, etc. But I am confident that I will be able to adjust. Thank you for having me! Nice to meet everyone!
