Default JudyPinkey's weight story

Hello to all low carb eaters,
Well, I have always fought with the bulg and most of the time the Bulg won!! :lola:
I was at 180 lbs, 8 years ago before my hysterecocmy(sap. ca.). Then we decided to move back home from Reno, Nevada area to Manteca, Ca.
My thyroid really went hey wire and I went into a thyroid storm. I became Hyperthyroid and got Graves disease. It took almost a year and they zapped my gland and then I became Hypothyroidism. When I was at Hyperthyroidism I gained weight instead of loosing like most with Hyperthyroidism.
Well, I got better, but Iamb still Hypothyroidism and I take synthyroid medication. I had a time getting weight off. I started reading the Thyroid newsletter (which I still read). I learnt alit. I started using 1 T of coconut oil per day and made Kefir. And as they said...I started loosing weight and feeling better. I also started at that time eatting low carbs. Well, little by little I started loosing. I joined Tops at the same time. I have lost 75 lbs and I have 25 lbs to get to my goal weight. This year I went to the Tops convention and I won in my division 1st place and 2nd place in the whole state of Ca.
That was great!!
I tried Fat Flush diet and it was ok, but I missed all the food I get to eat when on low carbs. I will get back following 1972 Atkins diet, It is more strict than the newer version. No net carbs, just real food.
I'm so excited that I found this website.
The pictures I posted should be: The after picture should be in progress picture. So, if anybody can guide me on how to change the after picture to progress picture, please let me know!! And THANKYOU!! Judy
