    Thanks @Guzzler! I forgot to put about the other 'success' that has happened after changing to low carb - my chronic hayfever which I usually suffer from very badly each June - and have done so for nearly 30 years - is MUCH better this year, not gone, but much improved. I'm pretty sure it's due to me cutting out wheat.

    Wow @eggs11 well done you I also know just hard you’ve worked at your transformation but well worth it hey? Please accept a congratulatory hug and pat on the back from me. You look amazing and so much younger. I used to believe that carrying too much weight at least made your face look younger but have to say I no longer believe this any more and the more photos I see the more evidence is that we look younger. Well done you and thank you for sharing your inspirational photos with us all on here

    Aww thanks @shelley262 - I came across the 'before' photo the other day and was quite shocked looking at it again - I still have more weight to lose and so it was nice to see what change has already taken place. I think we can look younger not just because of weight loss but because the quality of the food eaten is so much better for our skin now.

    Quite agree people I see who I haven’t seen for a while first of all say wow you look different you’ve lost so much weight closely followed by but you look so healthy and your skin looks amazing. Testament I think that low fat diets don’t make you look like that only thinner if you’re lucky!
