Low Carb and loving it

Monday, August 24, 2015

Well I had a great birthday but looking back at some of my pictures I looked like a beached whale. I took a good hard look at where I was at physically. Went to the doctor and had labs drawn and they showed a spike in my cholesterol levels. Colonoscopy done and had 2 polyps removed and one was pre cancerous. Decided I was going to make a change. For me the only time I have ever lost weight was with low carb so decided to try once again. Since July 20th I am down 8lbs, lost 3 inches from my waist and 2.5 inches from my hips. Not where I want to be but better than where I was. Now that my body has adjusted to using my fat for energy and not sugar and carbs I am going to start my daily walks back. It also helps that it is trying to cool off just a little bit here in Nashville and hopefully I can get my walks in without dying of heat stroke.

    Good for you for making the changes and glad they caught polyp before it turned into something more serious.
