Thanks, everyone, for your nice comments. It's five months later, and I'm still maintaining (for the first time ever after losing weight) quite easily.

I've just reread your success story for the third time and it's inspiring. Thank you SO much for sharing. I really needed that.

WTG with maintaining. It's the part that I love to hear most.

I really admire the courage to tell your story. It is truly inspirational to me because I too am a binge eater and alcoholic. Sober 2 hard months!!!! Stories like yours remind me that I can do this when I'm struggling.
Thank you!

Smile Very moving story

Thank you for sharing this story with us. We could all learn from it. You're an amazing lady. Yes, the low carb diet works, it fixed quite a few of my problems that I had.
Rule No1: Never give up!!!!
Rule No2: If you give up - no problem just refer to Rule No1 again.
