I have gone back to the LCHF lifestyle again at the start of lock-down, I have lost half a stone and "almost" have a flat stomach.
I have not eaten gluten for four years and gave up sugar completely four weeks ago. I started weekly pilates classes at the beginning of the year and since lock down, do two classes per week on Zoom. I have ME and get tired quite quickly so that is my only exercise for the week.
Of course I am desperate for a chocolate bar (not the good 90% stuff) or a bag of crisps or popcorn, but whenever I am weakening I look at my stomach and just have a big glass of water instead!
A couple of years ago I was told that I was pre-diabetic/hypoglycemic - so it will be interesting to get some blood tests later in the year to see if my results will have improved. Again, this is another reason to stick to this eating lifestyle. I have so many other health issues, I can't afford to add diabetes to the list.
Thanks to all of you for your posts, which got me started in the first place and give me the encouragement to carry on.
Well done Anne. Nothing succeeds like success!
Thanks Mike, this is very true.
