So D started doing a low carb diet before we went to Las Vegas (a couple weeks ago). She lost 7 lbs in a couple weeks. I started doing the same thing and lost 7 lbs in a week. Now that we are back from Las Vegas (we didn’t stick to the diet in Las Vegas) we are both back on the program. My goal is to get back to my fighting weight of 162 which is where I was at the beginning of summer. I’ve had a bad couple of months – eating late, lots of carbs before bed, too much ice cream and chocolate and chips. Now I’m only about 7 lbs from my goal but still 19 from my ideal weight (I should be 150 according to the BMI). My knees are feeling better than they were a few weeks back. I haven’t been exercising and I have done a little physical therapy. I think I’m going to try to start walking on the treadmill again today and see how my knees feel about it.
