Oh, you look so cute Renee.

Your new picture makes me think about that old saying, "This is the first day of the rest of your life"

I am so happy for you!!

You definitely earned every bit of your reward!

Congratulations to you - you look great! How wonderful to have the support of a knowledgeable doctor.

Love the dexa scans too - a picture is worth a 100 words.

Renee. Well done.
I really enjoy reading about such great success, which every time discredits the 'conventional wisdom' of the so-called 'experts'.
The Dexascans are amazing.

Renee, Your success story is a wonderful testimony to finding the right diet for your body. Your doctor chose well, one that works for both diabetes, obesity and your other heath issues. What great results you have had with the diet and your dedication to it and meeting this goal. Those Dexascans are so interesting...and your new photo is pretty darn cute too. Many congratulations

Renee, not only do you look amazing, but you look about 10 years younger than you did at the start of this journey.

I love your commitment to your goal, and willingness to do whatever it took to get and stay healthy.

Hi Renee. I got in late last night so tonight was the first time I had time to sit down and read your success story. I had to read it twice. It's so darn awesome!! I love that you met Dr. L who gave such good guidance and started you on a sustainable woe. Have you gone to see her to show her your svelte new figure? She would be immensely gratified. Your picture at goal weight is stunning. You are a hot tamale, woman!

It's so true this woe is 85% mental. You have every right to be proud of your fortitude, especially those last four months for the last 10 pounds. Way to go!

A true testament to this excellent woe is your conditions of being pre-diabetic, deficient in vitamin D, anemic, inflammation, insomnia, snoring, headaches and foggy brain all cleared up within four months. I also agree exercise is important all through our lives, especially as we age. You are the whole package.

Congratulations on this immense success and on each and every day going forward in this woe. Well done, you!! And thanks for sharing this journey with us because it makes us all stronger.
