Hi all, my name is Janelle and I have been searching the net all night to find inspiration on how to lose weight!!! Well what attracted me here was all the inspiring stories about everyone's progress and also i suppose to find out more about low carb eating plans. I have always believed that a balanced diet and exercise would be the thing to work for me, and even though this has as yet not happened i still think this way, so yes i am a bit of a sceptic, but everyone here seems to be getting results so wanted to know more basically!!! Low carb's would probably be the best thing for me as i seem to have an intolerance to bread and pasta (they give me bad cramps!!!) but at the moment i am intending to go back to the good old weight watchers on monday and start an excercise routine (fingers crossed ...lol). It is soooo depressing sometimes because it seems to be able to lose weight always costs extra in my budget (ie. joining WW, buying supplements/vitamins) this is why i usually just try to eat a balanced diet with lots of fruit and veges. Anyway am interested in hearing more about the low carbs, and was wondering if i am not actually doing that eating plan can i still chat on here as at the moment my main problem is motivation (where has it all gone) and i think by being able to share with people having the same weight issues would be beneficial to me. Anyway i have bored you all to tears long enough, goodluck all and goodnight!!
