Hi everyone. I attended my first ww meeting 10/6/08. I found out I need to lose 100 pounds. I gained pounds in about 15 months. I have been doing atkins for years. I lose 30 pounds then gain back 50. I decided to stop his cycle. It is hard for me as I am used to a quick weight lose and fast results, but I want to be healthy and fit and not have to keep yo yo dieting. I had an injury that prevented me from attending this Mondays meeting. I was in the Er. My back went out and I have been in bed for a week. I have stayed OP since joining, some days going under my points. Im on meds for the pain , and I havent moved in a week, this has me really depressed, as I know I havent moved and could possibly be gaining or not loosing weight. I feel great eating veggies, some snacks like skinny cows and the POPCORN!!! My questions are has anyone done atkins or low / no carb and then WW? This is so hard for me to grasp after learning fat was my friend. I would eat fat/ protien, no carbs . Now I am eating whole grain pasta, sweet potatoes, etc. This is very hard for me, I am scared of carbs:bcb_cry:.Can anyone offer any advice. Im like an addict of the low carb because it gets me going quick, but then Im heavier than when I started because I always binge. I know this is the smart thing to do, but it seems so hard. TIA, and I am sorry if my post seems crazy, Im a little spaced because of the meds.
