Default Hello, yet another newbie!

Hi everyone!

My nameís Christine and Iím just making a quick post to say hello and introduce myself.

I started going low carb mid January this year and have lost just over 10 kilos in that time. I initially was interested in doing Keto from the beginning but felt a bit overwhelmed at first so just gradually reduced my carbs until Iím now at the point where Iím usually under 20g a day. I found the weight loss slow at first but it really sped up once Iíd gone Ďfull ketoí so to speak! I also usually intermittent fast (16/8).

Like a lot of people the last 6-8 weeks Iíve been a bit slack due to isolation and routine changes etc. This week I went completely off the rails eating pretty much every carb in sight. Iíve really noticed the changes with less energy and generally feeling a bit Ďblergí. I miss the full feeling I get from eating low carb and find it really helps curb my snacking and cravings for sweet things.

So, back on the wagon tomorrow. Iím even thinking of maybe using the journal section here to keep me more accountable.

Hello from a Kristine with a K.

I started out that way too; just reducing carbs until I knew what I was doing and why. Congrats on your success so far.

Hi Jess and thanks for the welcome!

I noticed there's an Australian board but it's a bit quiet over there. Might add any new product finds etc. there if I come across anything.

There are even fewer Kiwis here, but I don't let that bother me.

Welcome to the forum, Christine. I look forward to following your journal!
