Default Another newbie in the house

Well....like many here I am just getting started.

My story.... is that I am in early 40's and had been lean my entire life. Even after babies, was able to lose and maintain. I had always eaten lowfat / low cal and this always worked formme. But in the last few years my body has changed and I have felt awful. Lethargic, slow, no energy and oh yeah some extra lbs. I wanna ditch. The "killer" was some pictures I saw recently after which I vowed to figure out what was happening to me and my body.

So I read and read and read...and landed here about a week ago.

Wow am I encouraged by the community and think I am figuring some things out.....namely carbs. I never watched or cared about them before but I have a feeling, that's where my focus needs to be.

So healthy low carb staples anyone? I am afraid of getting bored with my choices and reverting back to my old ways....

welcome to FitDay! Have you had any blood work done to see if there is a medical issue with you feeling so sluggish?

Have you ever done low carb? What's your plan? I recently did it and liked the way I felt while doing it.

Hi. Wow amazing progress pics.

Haven't had blood work done in a while, but am feeling 'better' after a week of carb-curving. I had never counted my intake this specifically before....so no, never done low carb.

I have eliminated all breads / starches / pastas etc.... For the last 8 days.
Otherwise lots of fish, chicken, veggies and some fruits (berries). For a treat I hit Smoothie King (Gladiator low carbs hi protein).

Otherwise.....tuna salad, hard boiled eggs, almonds, salads and a lot of shrimp cocktail.

Feel better.
Cravings has virtually subsided.
Walking 3.5 miles daily.

It's a start.

Thanks for your reply.
