Welcome to the Wii Exercise team! I've been having "health issues," and I just now checked the Introduce Yourself thread. I love my Wii. I always go back to it when I'm looking for exercise I will actually DO. I hope you love your Wii too.
I saw that you are on a low carb diet and are trying to lose weight. I read where low carb diets have a problem in that the body adjusts to low carb diets by trying to store energy as fat, and that you can have a larger weight loss by cycling your carb/calorie input so your body doesn't try to store energy as fat.
Also, you can time your carb intake on carb up days in accordance with your active life (early morning, 3hrs before or 1-3 hrs after exercise) to further avoid storing carbs as fat. So let every other day be a under 50 carb day and eat more carbs on the alternate days to keep your body from going into starvation mode.
The plan I am following actually has about every 7 day be a free day where you have an even higher carb intake to reset your body metabolism, but that might not be advisable for one in your situation.
It's February...let's make it FLY month...Finally Love Yourself

You are not alone on this journey. We do not stand in front or behind but beside each other. You can do this. Don't get down if you make a mistake but get back up and do it again and again until you get it right. It will happen. Maybe not today or even tomorrow but you will do it if you believe in yourself. Find that strength deep inside and bring it out. Don't jump into a decision to quit and then regret it. Even a small victory is a step ahead. I believe in you and now it is time for all of us to believe in ourselves. Let's make this the month we really FLY!
I read on a general question about eating is it emotional or what that you think of eating right after you have already eaten. You might want to journal your food intake and emotions down and see if you are getting enough foods and the right kinds too. Also, in stead of eating again try and brush your teeth with a minty toothpaste. That really works for me and makes the dentist happy too!! Good Luck! Pat 1136 days ago
