    I'm talking stomach fat. I am 5 weeks post diagnosis and have been doing LCHF and am pleased to report I have lost a roll of fat (will have an official weigh in tomorrow but feel so much smaller. Am only 5ft so every lb shows on me. After 2.5 weeks I had lost 3kg and taken my HbA1c down by 9 points (62 down to 53). I love LCHF!!

    Well done that is really good news. Make sure that you tone as you go so that your skin fits the new slimmer you. The weight took time to go on and so it should take a while to come off. We try to go too fast at our peril, so a pound (half a kg) a week is fine.

    Hi @SpinningQueen, Some of us lose our marbles, our keys, fob watch, our way or direction.
    That you have lost a roll or more is stupendous. Please keep leading by example O SpinningQueen,
    we are your humble subjects and praise you unreservedly.
    Well done, please keep up the great work and enjoy the benefits !!!

    Congratulations! I am also only 5ft so well aware of how every lb shows.

    I haven't lost a roll. In fact, I seemed to have gained a more prominent roll, as the few lbs I did lose I lost from far too high up ;)
