Hello--I decided to join this forum as I'll be embarking on a low carb eating journey for the new year. I know I need the support and I'm also aware helping others will give me strength too. I'm trying to navigate the site so I know where to post, read, etc.. Looking forward to meeting you! Thanks, JoJoSue

Hi JoJoSue. I see that we have about the same STATS. I wish you the best in this. I am looking for accountability people that I can link up with. My Husband doesn't do Low Carb thing and I have always found that I do so much better eating this way. I really need to make this a way of life for me now :-)

Many of us live in households where we are the only people eating LC, so you aren't alone. A journal is a great way to be accountable, so starting your own will be a great step forward.

Read around. I realize this is a giant website, but you'll find interesting and helpful first-hand information here that generic blogs don't give.

Many of us have found dietdoctor.com to be a really good resource as well.

Welcome, and enjoy your journey.

Default Not sure how to use this site!

I haven't been on since my first contact, as I don't even know how to reply to the 'welcome' responses I got. So THANK YOU to all who responded. Can someone tell me how I respond to them? Not sure how to navigate between threads--duh!! I'd appreciate help with the basics please! Thanks.

Welcome JoJoSue
Large forums like this are organized by subject. There isnít a "reply" button per se. But if you hit "quote" in the lower right, readers will know to which comment you are replying. If you just want to add a general comment to the topic, then write in the "reply to thread" box at bottom as you did already. That works too. More info on how to use this forum in the "TechnicalQuestions" section at bottom of this index page.
Go back to this page to see activity in the various topics and navigate between threads: http://forum.lowcarber.org/index.php? (First on the path above) From this page, if you want the Atkins forum, go here http://forum.lowcarber.org/forumdisplay.php?f=98. Or many use General Low Carb for Questions.
Also keep notifications on, and you will get an email Daily to any thread in which you have posted. If not, You can also tap on your own user name anytime to see All posts you have written.
Let us know how we can help, all the best,

Hi LHoltman--I would like to take you up on the accountability partner as my husband is not doing the LC diet either. I tried Atkins 2 years ago and lost close to 20# until I fell off the wagon...I hope I'm replying to your message correctly, I'm having a difficult time with this forum as the other one I was on was very self explanatory. Time to teach an old dog new tricks I guess! BTW--I haven't actually started yet--my husband continues to bring in the sugary stuff and I have NO willpower to stay away from it!! I don't remember how I was able to accomplish it the last time I went on Atkins, but maybe we can help each other?

Hi JoJoSue,
I am having the same issues with maneuvering around here. I would love to team up with you. Let me know how you are doing. I am in the process of trying to simplify things in my life. I have too much going on around me so I need to do that to function better! Hope all is well!

Thanks for the response LH! I was just about to give up on this web site because it's not as user friendly as other forums I've been on. If the Smoker Cessation forum had been this complicated I never would have been able to quit smoking--which thankfully I'm going on 5 years without cigarettes now

I understand about getting things organized in order to move forward. My husband had knee replacement surgery a week ago and I'm concentrating on taking care of him obviously rather than me. I'm glad he finally had it done, but that means he'll be home with me for 6 weeks and how do I get going on my LC eating when I need to cook for him and bring what he likes into the house? Not to mention having the added stress of waiting on him hand and foot--or should I say hand and knee?

Maybe we could start a new thread where we could communicate with each other or find a thread that already has people pairing up for accountability support? I'm ready to get going when you are!! Thanks!
