My friend Designated Knitter (aka Yarn Pusher) and I have started a team blog to chronicle our journey to lose weight and improve our health. It is called "Tending Our Gardens."
Her journey and mine will be a little different. I am also trying to implement things from a Nourishing Traditions perspective(raw milk, lacto-fermented foods, traditional eating), and how that is effecting my family. This kind of eating will automatically lower my carb-intake. Both of us have Poly-Cystic Ovarian Syndrome, which is connected to a hyperinsulinemia syndrome (aka Syndrome X), so our lowering our carbs to a point where our body can actually handle them, is one of our focuses.
So if you're interested, come by and take a look.
