I stopped my low carb. diet six weeks ago even though I lost 13 pounds that month. It was too expensive buying foods I didn't have available in the house. I am sure a lot of the weight loss might have been water weight but it made a difference in the way my blouse fit over my stomach. For once I could button the bottom button without it pulling when I sat down. I thought I would try something different to keep myself from getting bored with dieting. This time I decided to count calories. I have kept a food journal for the last four years. Therefore, I assumed it would not be a problem, I like lists anyway. Talk about a rude awakening! I consumed about 3,000 to 6,000 calories a day. I am gradually cutting down each week to bring it to 1,500. I have only gained about five pounds back (13#loss.) I have not had a chance to continue with my exercise routines as before. As soon as I have THAT most important factor on my agenda, again, weight will start to drop off at a healthy pace.

My attention span will be determined by my desire.

A Food Journal is a great idea. I have been trying to find economical software that can track calories. I used to have a great DOS program that only cost about $10. and then Windows came along and I had to throw it away.
