My Low Carb Life

Thanks for stopping by my page! I am so happy to be able to share some of my ideas and tips with you. Since I get asked all of the time what I am doing to lose weight, I was encouraged by some friends and family to start sharing my experience with low-carb living. So, this non-technical mama decided to try blogging in hopes that it can help someone else.
I have never had an issue with weight until about the time I started college. After a really bad relationship and cheerleading days over, I submerged myself in the comfort of food. I spent many nonrefundable years in bad habits and depression all while putting on a solid 70 pounds. To make a long story short, I had to hit rock bottom before I was able to start loving myself again. I moved home to live with my parents, went to work, cut off my cell phone and social media accounts, and kept my head down until I was able to start healing. After a couple years I lost weight by doing nutrisystem and ended up meeting an amazing man and starting a family. So, like most, the weight gain started to take over my life yet again. I think I had the most horrific pregnancy and labor that anyone could possibly have. After having my sweet son, I had put on another 70-80 pounds. I am sure I will eventually touch on everything that happened during and after my pregnancy but I think I will spare everyone right now.
I discovered low-carb “dieting” about 6 months PP. I had tried everything at this point so I thought it couldn’t hurt to try. I honestly didn’t think I would have as much success as I did and have been thrilled and in love with the way of life ever since.
I have been on both sides of weight-gain. I have been on the more medical side of it where some of the gain was out of my control and I have also used food as a comfort to deal with problems in my own life. I understand how hard it is to be a woman who is trying to lose weight with the world hanging on your shoulders. I am here to tell you that you can do it and it is possible! Regardless of your situation, you can always make a change and live the healthy life you deserve.
Stay tuned and feel free to ask me anything! πŸ™‚

  1. It’s great to meet you and I’m looking forward to trying out some new recipes. My low carb journey began after I’d put on quite a lot of weight – working long hours and eating the wrong food at the wrong time – classic lifestyle issues and was diagnosed with diabetes type 2. It turned out to be my life changing moment and my hitting that rock bottom. It gave me the motivation to make some major changes in my life including swapping to the low carb. It’s helped me avoid the medication they wanted to put me on, lose weight and feel so much better! Have a lovely weekend x

    1. Me too, Wendy! I’m sure there’s a lot we can learn from one another. You have to have a good support system when it comes to lifestyle changes and weight loss. My dad also has type 2 diabetes and has gone off of all his insulin because I meal-prep low carb for him and my mom. His blood sugar had not been normal for a long long time. Once he made the switch, it changed everything. I too, am a firm believer in this life and WOE. Congrats on your success and I am so glad you’re feeling better! 😊πŸ’ͺ
