Huge milestone for me! (Didn't see this happening)
This is more of a "yay"! moment. After such a dismal week as far as weigh ins last week, I am happy to say that I've hit a HUGE milestone! (I kind of feel like one of those biggest loser contestants haha). As of this morning I weighed in at 199.4 pounds, which is HUGE for me! I haven't weighed under 200 for at least 4 - 5 years (see since college). It may have even been longer I'm really not sure. I started this diet in the first week of july weighing 208.8 pounds (which was already a decent drop from my recent high of around 220 pounds in November of last year).
The Slow Carb Diet WORKS people, I can't stress that enough. You have no idea (maybe you do) how much effort and working out, and meal plans etc. etc. I had committed to in the last few years before I finally decided to look and see what was already on my bookshelf. I have my girlfriend and a good friend of mine to thank for pushing me to get on this diet and stay on it! It's been fun so far, and I have to say the second month is where I've seen the most inch/weight gains so far! I'm not done by any means, my end goal is 12% body fat and whatever weight that gets me (maybe 180?). I'm currently 22 - 24% bf depending on the moment, scale, tape measurement and web calculator.
Here's to continuing down a path to better health, a better life, and someday achieving my ellusive goals which have haunted me for YEARS! (Oh yeah...and that giant Costco chocolate cake at the end of the road)

Hey there congrats on your progress!! I hope to be below the 200 mark some day, I believe I can! I can't remember the last time I weighed in below 200 (sometimes I feel maybe at birth I did, and then was 200 ever since).
I've been on since the 2nd week of June, and i've lost 30lbs so far! I fancy the bakery section at costco as well... except the apple of my eye is the cinnamon rolls! Good luck and congrats again on the progress!
