Discarded: 67 pounds ... 96 to go
It's always good to see the proof, isn't it?
With all those other numbers going in the right direction, I'm sure your triglycerides are great, too.
If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you always got.

Nice! You should go post this on the diet forum to irritate the naysayers.
Way to go!!

Woohoo! Another poster child for Low Carb!!
As I was going to St. Ives,
I met a man with seven wives,
Each wife had seven sacks,
Each sack had seven cats,
Each cat had seven kits:
Kits, cats, sacks, and wives,
How many were there going to St. Ives?
Every spring my employer conducts health screenings. We get paid $100 to have our cholesterol, glucose, BP, etc, measured. It's a no-brainer.
I began my low carb regime in September 2012, after last year's screening.
This year my numbers were excellent and a substantial improvement from last year.
Weight is down at least 20 lbs
BMI is 25 (28 last yr)
Waist is 37 inches
BP is 91/64
Nonfasting glucose is 91 (less than 2 hours after a meal)
Total cholesterol is 211 (same as last yr)
TC/HDL ratio is 2.8 (3.7 last yr)
HDL is 75 (57 last yr)
Forgot to fast, so they did not check my LDL or triglycerides, but I have no doubt that my triglycerides were excellent too.
All of this achieved without calorie reduction, without vigorous exercise, without depriving myself of anything except toxic carbs.
Call me committed!
