I wouldn't drop the carbs too much, just enough to start seeing the weight on the scales go down. If you drop the number of carbs to a very low level at the start, you have nowhere to go once you start to plateau.

I know it's tempting to ditch them and eat a low calorie diet, but patience is important. You don't want to end up in a position a few months down the line where you're on 1,000 calories a day, ridiculously low carbs and driving yourself into the ground with cardio, only to not lose weight.
