I just turned 54 this year and have been on low-carb for about 3 years now. I started close to 400 pounds! (my ticker here doesn't show that, but I think it's a matter of the time period). I've lost 150 pounds this way, and the greatest benefit, believe it or not, is how much better I feel. I've got plenty of other health issues that confound my efforts, but even so, my overall wellbeing is so improved now it seems like the weight loss is just a "side effect"! I love it. I've still got at least 100 more to lose, but I'm going to get there because this lifestyle works
. My loss is slower now, but I expected that; you can't lose at a high rate for the whole road. Our endocrinologist says "phenomenal". I'm not as enthused, but I'm still happy. It's still trickling down, and it's all lifestyle, not surgery. yay
My DH has recently been diagnosed uncontrolled Type 2 diabetic (thankfully I'm at least not diabetic!), so we're both under the care of the same endocrinologist and his diet. Makes it easier to implement.
I'd be glad to add my voice to others' here ... although I'm not always very reliable about stopping by as regularly as I ought! Good luck to us all. We're going to get to our goals, and then some!
...the problem with people these days is they've
forgotten we're really just animals.
We did not weave the web of life; we are but a strand in it.
We don't have souls. We are souls. We have bodies.
