One Week In

I have been "low-carbing" for one week and my weight is down six pounds!

Another exciting benefit of my new diet is that I have dramatically reduced my Humalog intake. Some of my meals and snacks have not even required an injection. Now that's something I can feel good about!

Congrats! Try to take it easy, though… six pounds in a week sounds like a very quick drop.

Thanks for the concern, Manny. I am sure that my weight loss rate will taper off soon - and I do have a long way to go!

I will post my pounds lost each Monday. I’d like to eventually display the classic “before” and “after” shots side by side. My goal is to lose 30 pounds by age 30 (October 3)!
