Default 40 lbs gone since Valentines Day - now up to 60 lbs - Updated again

Maybe too fast? I dunno. Not sure if I care .

I started low-carbing to control blood sugar (not diabetic yet, but headed for it). And the weight just fell off.

40 down as of this AM, probably 50 more to go. But who knows - maybe my best weight is lower than 170 (I'm really tall and big - 5'10"). I guess I'll find out when I get there.


Update: as of June 20 it's 60 lbs gone since VD. The loss has definitely been slowing down but it's still moving, for the most part.

And it's finally coming off my stomach, which had been looking like a "backwards too-high butt" .

Another update:

As of Sept 25 (my b-day,BTW) I'm down 79 lbs, was 181 this AM. The rate of loss has definitely slowed down - I got very spoiled by the way it fell off the first 3 or 4 months of this. I can still ditch 3 lbs a week if I really eat clean and hammer on myself with exercise but I can't do it multiple weeks in a row like I could before. It'll stop,then start again.
I'm down from a size 20/22 to a 14/16, too. Just gave away all my fat clothes, as I'm never going back there again.

I still wish I could get the stomach off - I have this paunch just below the navel that won't go away. It's not too much smaller than my butt, though everything is smaller all over now which is a Good Thing.
