Miraculum's Journal, 25 January 2019

Good morning, FatSecret Friends!

My body really likes eating LCHF/keto. (That's an understatement!) I stopped *cold* the relentless progress toward the 250s (pounds) and the 300s (mg/dL - average blood sugar) on December 27th. The response of my blood sugar was immediate. By every measure, I'm healthier and happier for:
-- the accompanying and *dramatic* reduction of arthritic and neuropathic pain, hunger, and cravings;
-- the *hundreds* of dollars saved (up to $20.00 a day that I used to load onto credit cards on secret sugar binges);
-- passing through the 240s, 230s, 220s in less than 30 days; and
-- the reversal of my depression -- that hopeless, helpless feeling that I am doomed to increasing disability and death.

I own my journey, AND a huge chunk of the credit for my healthy success belongs to every person, known or unknown, who is part of FatSecret. I am *so* grateful for the support I receive here!

I encourage everyone, whatever your approach to recovery and health, to share your journey and claim your share of this success for yourself. You belong here!

Thank you, folks! I don't want to forget everyone who clicks that "support heart" for me. Sometimes, there's nothing to be said or we don't have time to comment, so "giving and sending hearts" is definitely appreciated!

@keyten77, that is one of my non-scale goals. I'mm working to eliminate my injectable diabetes and hypertension meds and reducing or eliminating everything else. I'm on 13 different prescription medications right now, down from 16 two years ago. I'm actually mortified when my doctors review that list. You know what some think, secretly: "This fat slob is killing herself and doesn't care!"

It is indeed a pleasure to read your posts. So many of your ideas I am in 100% agreement with. I love KETO, too...and I'm learning daily how to make it work for me.

@birdeegirl, I started out at 288 lbs., so I know how difficult it is to face the "long haul" on this. I hope that continuing weight loss improves your fibromyalgia. I have friends that are debilitated by their pain and fatigue. It's rough. LCHF/keto, even if you can't see your way through to "full ketosis," can really help. Best wishes on your journey!

Bravo! What a great message!!!

@To145, thanks. I love to write, as you might guess, but none of the ideas on my WOE are "mine." I've relied on professionals (MDs who endorse LCHF/keto after testing it with their patients and studying the peer-reviewed research), too, in addition to laymen's books describing their successes. I understand that this WOE isn't for everyone. I marvel at our bodybuilder buddies who are on a whole different planet, at this point, from long-time obese people and are able to process more calories and carbs. But that's okay. I'm not aspiring to a semifinalist slot iin the "Mrs. Elderly USA" competition! LOL!

Thanks Miraculum I am so great full that I have found LC/HF woe. Once I added in intermittent fasting to the mix I have found that my "good days" are somewhat better and my "bad days" are more tolerable. I try to get some exercise in. I just keep plugging along 😁

Great post.. I’ve just done 8 doctors visits across 5 specialities in 10 days and was feeling quite despondent and exhausted.. your progress is just what I needed to perk me up! Thanks for sharing my Friend πŸ‘πŸ‘
