It came off much faster when I was fatter. To ditch more than about a pound a week at this point I need to get close to induction-level carbs and exercise like a fiend., plus watch calories. I usually don't count calories too much, just carbs.

For most of the diet I've been averaging 30g carbs a day (10 per meal, max, 5 per snack, max) but I'm up to closer to 60 g a day now.

I also have blood sugar issues (not full-on diabetic, but was heading there) so I don't eat any amount or combo that sends my blood sugar up past 100 at any time. It stays almost dead flat in the 90s if I stay low carb. At some points in my cycle my blood sugar is more haywire than at others, so I eat less carb then and a little more later in the month when my sugar runs lower.

A very BIG Congratulations!



I have blood sugar issues too. Whenever I take a glucose tolerance test it comes out "abonormal" but not diabetic. The dr. never explained exactly what that meant. I now know it means that I am insulin resistant which makes it difficult to lose weight. But you are doing great.
