In this otherwise sordid year I managed to lose 80lbs. I’m down to 340lbs from an all-time high of 420+lbs (my home scale stopped registering my weight after 420). I also developed diabetes; the night I read 400 on my wife’s glucose measuring device was the night I decided to change my life forever and not look back. A year earlier my Dr recommended a low-fat, low-carb, low-calorie, high-protein system. With my diabetes being so high I decided to do it. Today I hit the 80lbs weight loss mark. I’m so happy but this won’t be complete until I hit my ideal weight of 162lbs. I’d love to meet new friends and share my experience as well as learn from theirs.
