Hi Janet, I started 3 weeks ago tomorrow.  It's been rough but is getting better.  I've found a lot of great recipes on the forum, especially the sausage stew, which I love.  There is a lot of support here, which is keeping me going and on track!!!

So if I have a product with 8 carbs and 8 grams of fiber, does it turn out to be 0 carbs?   ;D

I am so there with you!!!  I tried FTS before as well.  I was doing good for 2 months.  I could tell a difference and I know I was losing weight.  Then one day at work, I got upset and went home and made a trip to Starbucks, and it was all over.  Tried the counting calories again, which does NOT work, gained a whole bunch of weight, and now and back again!!! ;D

I'm you use golden flax seeds or ground flax?  Also, I think I read somewhere about offsetting the total carb count with fiber?  Can someone explain this to me please?  Thank you!!! :o

Sausage balls!!!  I'm going to have to try them!!!  They sound yummy. ;)

Good Morning!!!  Thank you everyone for your kind words of support.  Today is day 2, day 1 went really well.  Today I want to cook up some things to take for lunch all week.  Thanks to the recipe section, I have some fantastic ideas.  I am very excited, which is unusual for me when I take away my favorite foods (sweets).  I look forward to taking this journey with all of you.   :D

Thank you!!!  I have been reading a lot of the posts and many, many recipes.  I just watched the reality show and am blown away.  I have read a lot of heart felt messages and am very happy to have this forum to connect with people that share my problems.   I look forward to the encouragement and also encouraging others as I follow this path!!! :D

Good morning, this is my first post and I am just starting what I hope will be the first day of the rest of my life.  I am very determined and need to lose weight.  Nine months ago, I had bilateral knee replacement and still can't walk without the aid of a walker.  I know it's because of all the extra weight I'm carrying.  It is affecting all aspects of my life, especially my job.  I live in Washington where it rains almost all the time and summer is cherished.  I can't even go out and enjoy the sun after all these months of waiting for nice weather.  I've read all the recipes and gotten some great ideas and hope that I will make it on this journey with the help of everyone on this forum.
