Excellent! This is exactly what you want, and it becomes self-reinforcing.

OK well, today marks exactly two weeks consuming 20 carbs or less per day. I did not lose as much during week 2 as I did during week 1, but I have gone from ~274 to precisely 272.2 - a good solid 2 to 2.5 pounds I figure. My BG has also gone down a bit more, but again not as much as it did during week 1, average about 130.

I continue to take my oral medications but hope to be able to quit them completely at some point.

My plan at this point is to continue induction at no more than 20 grams of carbs per day.

That's great progress.
After that large whoosh of water/edema you had the first week, settling into a 1-2 pound loss of actual fat weight. Often week three has no loss, so if that happens, don't get discouraged. Why the Scales Lie:

You probably feel great already but may not be fully "fat adapted" yet, that is estimated to be more like 4-6 weeks.

Good plan to stay at 20g, Consider staying there until BG is under 100 consistently. Dr Bernstein keeps diabetics at his 6-12-12g meals forever.

From an average BG of 250 to 130 in 2 weeks...guess this low carb thingie works
Keep doing what you're doing.
