Welcome to the SLD forum! Thank you for reading my posts.
I started trying to lose weight two years ago. My highest weight has probably been about 210 lbs ( 95.26 k) at 5' 6" ( 25.4m ) I started by walking, light exercise and gradually cutting calories. I used a calorie counter (fitday.com) to see how many calories I was actually eating each day.
When I dropped to about 195 lbs, I found SLD, and started drinking 3 Tbs oil, continuing to eat less foods.
My lowest weight, last year, was around 162 lbs. (73.48 k).
Several weeks ago, I resumed my efforts to reach my goal weight, or near it, with a starting weight of 175 lbs. (79.38 k). So far, I've lost 5 lbs. (2.27 k); I'm eating mostly proteins and fats, with a few healthy carbohydrates (7 grain bread, clementine oranges, apples, low-fat milk, kefir or yogurt), salad, green beans.
We are all wishing you the best, and to keep positive.
