True. Well done. Myself I'd wished I'd experimented more in my youth with low carbing but over the years on the forum I've had a great adventure and discovery with its affects on my body. I'm hugely more confident with my weight (even though I couldn't outrun my huge hunger on huge amounts of insulin so I had a bypass 2yrs ago). Low carbing for me wasn't enough. I have to have low calorie AND low carbing to lose weight. My weight loss was due mainly to loss of most of my insulin as a result of low carbing and low calorie. I'm nearly 8st less than my highest weight. I tipped 23st. This thread has been hugely effective in giving me accountability. Use it as often as you need. I'm not on as regularly as I was but many members are. We all help each other, as much as we can. You sound like you know your body's response to how to lose weight very well. I struggled hugely with that for decades. I'm not sure IF I'll be able to lose anymore weight but I'm always trying. Healthily.
