Under 16 stone!!

This morning I stood on the scales and saw 223lb - which is very gratifying.
Losing weight has never been very easy but it increased at a great rate with no effort at all, except when eating low carb.
I had thought that the 'cholesterol lowering' diet had spoilt that, but it seems to be coming back very gradually now.
I suppose it is an indication of how damaging a high carb diet is, it breaks the metabolism and mending it takes time.
It isn't a year since diagnosis yet, so a bit of patience might be required, but I'll soon be needing new clothes - even without losing weight I am losing volume so another review of garments is needed.
