    Intro post

    Hello everyone. Google has led me to this site many times in the search for low carb recipes and other things and I have finally decided to sign up.


    I've been overweight for most of my adult life apart from about ten months between 2009 and 2010 when I miraculously reached my "recommended BMI" by eating mostly vegetables and using the Wii regularly. Then Winter 2010 brought big changes - pregnancy! A slightly problematic pregnancy where I was signed off work sick and under doctors orders to take it easy. I didn't put much weight on whilst being pregnant. After the birth I sat back and waited for the weight to fall off, which I had heard happens easily if you are breastfeeding. But before long I found that I could not even fit into my maternity jeans and I was soon heavier than I had ever been (around 108kg and ordering size 20 jeans)! Stress and depression had resulted in comfort-eating and little desire to exercise. At the start of 2012 I missed wearing my old clothes and decided to try the Dukan diet and stepped up my exercise and managed to lose two dress sizes.


    Summer 2012, we bought a house that required several months of refurbishing and having to move in with my mum. Trying to stick to Dukan or Keto when I didn't have my own kitchen was too much of a challenge and the weight started to creep back on. I've tried to keep it at a maintenance level since then. Once moved in to our finished house I managed to get a grip, cut the carbs and fit back into my old size 14 jeans. But I definitely feel that I am in that yo-yo dieting territory that is actually less healthy than simply being overweight (there's no way I can cut out carbs over Christmas!) So I feel I've gone as far as I can with low carb dieting, because when I fall off the wagon, I fall hard. Then when I'm not off the wagon, it feels like I'm spending nearly every waking moment trying to perfect low-carb bread, biscuits and cakes.


    That said, I'm now looking into Slimming World as I like the idea of not having to turn my back on chocolate and bread for good. I need simplicity. Joining a group does not work for me at the moment due to timings, so I'm going to give it a try on my own using the books and tips from these forums. So, hello!
