8Patty's Journal, 14 December 2017

Thank you Fat Secret Family!
I know this journey would have been much harder if not impossible
without your help. I have a way to go, and I'm sure with your help
I will succeed!
I am truly grateful for all the positive comments, emails and IM's

I began this journey September 14, 2017 at 237 pounds.

I weighed in today December 14, 2017 at 192
Blood ketones: 2.2
Urine ketones: moderate

Blood sugar 79

Doing the happy dance, you can't wipe this smile off my face!

If I can do it everyone can, it's a mindset how bad do you want it.
I wanted it bad real bad, I needed to prove I could function without
pain. I have spinal and cervical stenosis. Well I proved it I will
always have stenosis but I am free from pain!

Next I needed to stop taking medications, I no longer take
Metformin or Omeprazole. Only take bp med (for now) hopefully I can stop that soon.
Mind clarity what a bonus I stay focused, I no longer read the same
paragraph 3 times, I read it once and comprehend it.
Sleeping like a baby.
I have so much energy wish I could bottle it and sell it!

Stay with it people You can do this! Heartfelt thank you for all your
compassion and support. Blessings, Patty

Thank you all WoW I'm overwhelmed with your support! Love and caring words touch my soul. Keep it going people, determination, positive thoughts and a will to succeed! My body, unlike me does not lke carbs. I found you don't need them to live our ancestors are proof. I will add more of a diversity to my diet when I see goal approaching, but that's a ways away because I plan to change my goal but I'm searching for the blue line! Love you all, Patty

Patty, your journals and all of your supportive comments are truly motivating and much appreciated! I initially read your post and can't count months so comments on losing 45 pounds in 2 months when it was actually 3. But still an amazing loss and it means you are persistent and committed.
