Low carb pride!
Sunday, July 22, 2012
I was (and still am) going to write an entry about how I'm doing on low carb/no wheat today. Instead, I want to brag on some acquaintances of mine, "Roy" and "Becki". When I met them in 2010 they each had a good 50 pounds to lose and generally looked...well, not the picture of health. Roy in particular had the classic distended "wheat belly" and I was genuinely concerned about the state of his heart. When they saw how much success I was having last year with my way of eating, they decided to follow a similar plan. Last time I saw them was earlier this past winter, and they had each lost around 15 pounds. We got together with them tonight for her birthday and they have lost 45 pounds apiece! They admitted to missing bread and pasta (as I still do sometimes) and said that sometimes it wasn't easy to stay on track, but they were glad they did. They look healthy and happy and to be honest, much younger as well. Becki said that her doctor isn't "yelling" at her anymore. I'm so proud of them!
