Hi!

#1
My name's Karen and I've just be diagnosed with Impaired Glucose Tolerance, so after years and years of dieting on and off and just not getting very far I finally *have* to lose weight.
I'm going down the low carb route which is so new to me.
I've done every sort of diet, most recently SW (Green), but I've found that a lot of carbs is leaving me exhausted and I can barely keep my eyes open afterwards.
I have 4 kids, the oldest is 18 and just been accepted into the army. Youngest being 2 and a real handful!
So that's me :D

Yes! Hey Roch, how are you doing!!?
Great to 'see' you!
Hi hun and welcome aboard lol, this site is fab.
Am soz to hear bout about the diagnosis of impaired glucose tolerance, does that mean you are pre diabetic and how is it going to affect you, do you have to change ur diet completely or just adjust it.
There is a good section here with peeps doing low carb am sure you will be able to get lots of good advice and support.
I am doing good thanks am now on Ww and finally back on track.

Hun here is the link to give you a guided tour round the site and if u need any help then just give me a shout.
Take care karen and chat soon xxxx

Thanks for the link!
I'm fine really, yes it means I'm pre-diabetic and will probably go onto to develop diabetes anyway. I just have to cut out as much sugar as I can and not add sugar to anything. Watching my portion sizes seems to be my main thing too as I really can eat!
Glad you are finding WW is better for you, I lost just over a stone with that but then got into a rut and found I wasn't eating properly (my fault, not the plan)
