Marge Burkell of Skinny On Low CarbHi! I’m Marge! While you may know me by my cartoon character  I am in fact very real and the “voice” behind Skinny on Low Carb!  Thanks for stopping by to learn a little bit more about me.

I feel like my whole life has led me here and to you. At 61 I have had many chapters in my  life; as a wife of 37 years, mother, grandmother, professional artist, designer and image consultant I have learned and been trained in all facets of looking my best. But three years ago I decided I had gotten off track and decided it was time to do something about it!

Me too! I didn’t like the  matronly grandma that you see in the lefthand image at the top of the page. I weighed what I did when I was 9 months pregnant with any of my 3 kids and my makeup was stuck in a bygone decade.  

Enough was enough! I was going to put all my knowledge and training to work on myself.  After all,  I didn’t design art-to-wear runway fashions and get the the models ready for the couture shows for nothing! As a result I can also help you!

I lost 30# and 3 full dress sizes in my first 90 days on low-carb

First I needed to drop a whole lot of weight and yesterday wasn’t soon enough! I discovered the low-carb lifestyle and I lost 30 pounds and 3 full dress sizes in my first 90 days! Along with looking better I found that I felt better than I had in years! My husband Michael was so taken with the new me he joined me too and together we have lost 100 pounds!

What will you find within the pages of this website? K.I.S.S!

This blog is where I share all I’ve learned. From simple, easy to make low-carb recipes  (because I don’t have time nor the inclination to be gourmet) along with all the tips and information I have learned and continue to research as I live a low-carb lifestyle for 3+ years. Couple all that with ways to look fabulous during your weight-loss journey and you’ve got me as your guide right in the privacy of your own home.  

NO complicated routines,  recipes or strange foods!

I encourage everyone to K.I.S.S (keep it SUPER simple!) to stay focused and on-track in this simple to live lifestyle and you will find that practiced here on my site and in our great Facebook group.
