I abandoned the low carb lifestyle...Look where it got me.

About 6 months ago, I abandoned the low carb lifestyle in part because I was trying to focus on buying my house and removing the stress from my life, but also partly because of all of the drama over the Kimkins diet. The effects of that was that I have now gained back all of the weight that I lost. Every bit of it! Anyway, I'm happy to be back on track and now that I am back on the low carb diet, I hope to find many of my low carb friends.

Last week, I lost .8 of a pound by watching what I was eating. Well, today I'm going back to my low carb weigh of life(get it) because I truly feel better when I am eating low carb. Not only do I start losing lots of weight, but the swelling in my legs goes down and stays down. The swelling in my legs in addition to the arthritis is what stops me from working out. It is so much pain that to put on tennis shoes and try to walk for an extended period of time is unbearable. I know from experience that after about a week of eating low carb, most of the swelling will be gone and I can then begin to concentrate on working out.

Wish me luck! I'd love to hear from anyone on a low carb diet.

You can try working out your upper body instead if your lower body is having problems. Try lifting weights with your arms. Or placing a mini pedal bike on a table and using your arms on the pedals instead of your leg for cardio. I am not on any kind of diet since I prefer a healthier lifestyle change instead, but good luck.
