Low-Carb: the best New Year's Resolution?

Well it has been a while since my last update, but this has been a busy month. I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas holiday. 

It was a little easier than I expected to pass up on some of my "old" favorite foods like dressing, macaroni & cheese, and corn. I'm sure this was because I had some great alternatives (such as cauliflower & cheese casserole) and of course Mrs. LCD's famous low-carb lemon pie.  

December 31 is an important date to me personally; on 12/31/2012 I ended my "old" life and started the low-carb lifestyle on 1/1/2013. 

For the months preceding that date I had researched various diets and decided that "keto" (or low-carb) was the one for me. It offered the most flexibility and did not lock you into rigid portion control rules (which I knew would never work for me). 

So, on January 1st I flipped the switch and dove into a new way of thinking -- here I am 60 pounds lighter to prove that it works if you stick with it. 

As many make new year's resolutions around this time, I encourage you to share this website with your friends and family members -- perhaps there is someone in your life who needs to consider making a change. Perhaps that is you! 

If I can answer any questions, please feel free to ask.  Thanks for a great 2013!
