6 Month Report! Including Before and After* Pics!
Helloooo fellow slow-carbers
I am delighted to say I hit a huge landmark today, 6 months (actually 6 4-week cycles) of Slow-carbing! Excited to say I have great results to show and even before and after* pictures!
Total Changes since starting 6/4/2012
Total Lbs lost: 76lbs (10lbs since last month! really great considering all my travel and that I have not been able to run or walk long distances because of a foot injury)
Fat Lbs lost: 69.229lbs (hooray for body fat monitoring!)
Body fat % lost: 17.5% (at 23.9 now, finally below the dreaded "Obese" range!).
Inches lost off my chest: 8.5"
Inches lost off my stomach: 10.85"
Pant size: went from barely closing a 42 to easily fitting into a 36
Numbers of comments and compliments about my weight loss: too many to count!
Another crazy stat? I've lost 27% of my starting body weight! I am not 3/4 of the person I used to be. Sorry I'm a bit of a data junkie
Now for those before and after pics:
this is me the weekend before I started slow-carbing, which also happened to be my harajuku moment.
Now this is me, 6 months after, wearing the same shirt, and not sweating profusely:
This is me wearing a smaller tshirt and new pants!
I wanna thank ALL OF YOU. You have all made a difference, I can recite names of the top of my head but I know I'll miss a ton of you. You guys are a second family to me and a huge part of my success. To all of you who are thinking about doing this, STICK WITH IT. Trust the book, look for advice, everyone here is willing to help. It will change your life in so many ways. I feel and look like a completely different person. My confidence has gone from the ground to a high level. Oh you all might be wondering about the asterisk on the title and on the post on the "After" word. It is because this is by no means an "After." This is only a "current'. I'm gonna keep fighting, I'm gonna keep running, I'm gonna keep going as much as I can to a healthier version of me. I can say this with honesty and tears in my eyes: Thank you.

I'm overjoyed for you that you have made such a huge improvement in your life, and of course anyone who has battled overweight knows that it is about sooooooooooo much more than just being slimmer and feeling better.
