Hello, everyone! Thank you for checking out my blog. If you are here, you probably have an interest in losing weight and carb cycling. Perfect! I do, too! I plan to use this blog to doument my progress (both successes and failures), share recipes and tips and as a way to keep me accountable and on track. I will probably talk about my personal life and family some, but will try to keep the focus on weight loss.

A little bit about me... My name is Amy. I am 35 years old, a wife, and a mom. I work full time as a registered nurse in a pediatric specialists clinic. I'm also in school to get a BSN (Bachelor's of Science in Nursing). As you could guess, I'm busy. Eating right and being healthy has not always been a priority. My highest non-pregnant weight was 238 pounds. I lost some weight by eating low carb, but that was no longer working for me. I learned about carb cycling this past April and jumped right in. I was getting great results, but fell off track this summer. Thankfully, I caught myself but not before I regained everything I had lost. Like a lot of people who struggle with weight, I've tried just about every diet. I really think carb cycling is what works for me.

I got back on track with my eating 2 weeks ago. At that point I weighed 224.2. Yesterday I weighed 214.4. Down 9.8 pounds in 2 weeks! Not too shabby!! Tomorrow I'll share some of the basics of carb cycling and some good resources for information. Check back often to see my progress and find out "what I ate today".
