Words are failing me right now as mere words just aren't sufficient...

Have these instead:

You are FABULOUS @CandiceMarie!! Congratulations and Well Done and Wowzers to you :like: :heart: :lol:
Once past this cold spell I shall need to look closely at this BSD method, or at least grip to 5:2 for a while.

Onwards dear friend :grin: :lol: :cool:

I just got back from a week away, visiting son and his wife in San Francisco. It was terrific, and I also had some alone time to write goals and a reasonable list of ways to be healthy. No snow or ice there, so I walked every day, getting stronger. We ate out a few times, but I had a lot of vegetables. No calorie counting. I have returned happy and taking care of self.

Has anyone found Mornflake Oatbran in US?


Hey @GrannieAnnie - I haven't seen their oat bran, but I do get their oats in my local supermarket.

Much improved B pressure and blood sugars,many inches whittled off..i didnt record inch loss but have lost loads from waist,hips,fingers,arms,shoulders,thighs...and no longer have sensitive teeth!

Anyone thinking of starting BSD,it works, specially if you have a lot to lose. I could have lost more i am sure,but health and mobility probs mean my ability to exercise is restricted. If youre trying to decide,i say Go for it, i didnt think i could do one week never mind 24, but its very doable with just a little will power. Once you tame your internal Carb Monster,it gets easier! And your Carb Monster very soon goes running away whimpering,never to return! X

That's just amazing CandiceMarie!! Well done!!

I suspect you are right about the carb monster, but I never am able to banish it completely. I usually have a wibble a day with a bit of bread, or maybe pasta or a macaron or two. Nothing like the old days, of course. Maybe I should try banishing it completely...
Well done, @CandiceMarie on such a fabulous weight loss but, more importantly, on beating the carb monster! I have followed your journey with great interest and am so pleased that you have achieved such a brilliant result! :star: :star: :star: :star: :star:
Tomorrow is my first anniversary of starting to follow BSD / low carb way of life. Have lost one hundred pounds so far and it hasnt been difficult. I am indebted to @hazelnut20 for first inspiring me to give BSD a go. And many thanks to all you guys old and new for yr friendship and encouragement on this journey we are all taking via 5:2 and variations of, and low carb,towards the bestest healthy and trim we can be! X onwrds and downwards folks! X :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart:
