    Hello everyone

    I have become more a lurker than an active member as I am not a big participator in social media ( makes me anxious don’t know why)but wanted to share my latest update with the crew.

    Things are still going well with the LCHF way of life, all be it a little more relaxed so I need to be careful of carb creep.

    I have always been moderate to high compared to many on here( circa 80-100g a day)and after my first check up post diagnosis I was told I need to return for 12 months.

    My anxiety got the better of me and I have been back to get an update. Which was 5.4% which has not helped with my anxiety but I accept it is a good result.

    Summary

    April diagnosis 6.9%
    July re test 5.7%
    November update 5.4%

    Total weight loss 4stone 4lbs

    All the best to you all and thanks for the helpful input that ends up on this forum.

    Thanks @Mbaker let’s hope so. I will happily live in remission.

    It has given me a big kick up the backside and I am a lot more active than I have ever been.
