Well said Ken. It's the change in attitude combined with the change in eating that does it. You continue to be a model and an inspiration for everyone here.

Does losing 250 pounds make me a success story? OMG. Yes, losing 250 pounds makes you a fantastic success story
Wow, Ken, great post. Beating Type 2 diabetes, losing cravings for crap and breaking the addiction, being more active and to tie shoes from standing position ... it's all so wonderful. What a journey to freedom.
And you have been maintaining. Maintaining doesn't give rewards like weight loss so it's all the NSVs we need to remember in order to value the wonderful low-carb woe. Your pictures speak for themselves. A stunning transformation. Thanks for sharing your journey - it's beyond inspirational!!

I'd say you are a success story in many ways!!!

Starting with your attitude, your determination & comment all the way to your weight loss you are a success story!!!

Plus knowing that you are a carb addict & making this diet your WOL is totally what you needed to do!!!

Keep it up & your new look will stay with you!!!

Love the pictures! Thank you for sharing your story!!!

IMO you're a huge success! Not only for all you've done for your own body, but also how you have inspired and encouraged so many at this forum.

A success and a role model. I showed your pictures to my husband & said this man lost 250 pounds. He asked, which one? You look like a completely different person.

Thank you for sharing your story. It's people like you who help me stay on this road.
