Default Introduction - If there is anybody here

Hi, I'm sosumi. I've been doing LC on and off since 2000. I once lost 100 pounds. I was elated. Then, I had to have surgery and experienced a difficult recovery. I fell off the wagon and gained all of it back over 13 years. During that time, I went on and off LC without getting much traction.

I've been back at this since the end of Aug last year. In this year, I've lost 44 pounds. The last 8 months were very stressful with work and other external forces. I've been more in a maintenance mode.

Things are much better now and I have less stress. I am refocused and want to get to goal.

Hello, welcome. Yes we are still here. Congratulations, it is a journey isn’t it. I was diagnosed with diabetes type 2 at the beginning of June 2019. I started low carb June 9. The sugar levels are down. Weight is down about 19 pounds. Saw a negative article on the BBC today about low carb. I know high carb was killing me.

To lose 100 pounds is some achievement. To do it twice would feel pretty good too I imagine, and it sounds like you're well on your way to achieving that. Well done, keep up the good work!

Ms Arielle – thank you for that. Yes, I need to recognize that maintaining is hard, too. And I will need this skill when I make goal.

Myca – you are doing great! Glad to hear your sugar has responded so quickly!

Grav – thanks for the compliment. Yes, it will feel great to do it again, and then to actually make goal! Gosh, you have done wonderfully and lost over 100 pounds! Way to go! Thank you for the well wishes!

Appreciate the warm welcome all! Happy Monday!
