65.2lbs difference between the photos.
82.2lbs lost all together.
55.2lbs lost since the 2010 rrreee start.
12.1lbs lost since the 15th of last month. It's been an interesting month, and I didn't seem to get round to photos until the 21st.
Happy with the diet though.

Wowwww! You look phenomenal! Years younger, too--are you Merlin, to age backwards in this fashion? :D

Truly, you look lovely and I hope that my results are even half as good as yours have been. Thank you for sharing photos of yourself as you lose; they're very inspirational!

Aw shucks, thanks NC, that is so kind of you! Aging backwards, lol!

You look stunning! Such big eyes!

I saw your other post about the inches lost and was impressed. But to see the change in your picture really floored me. You really have become younger!

You're looking lovely! So much younger! How is this possible?? :)

WOW!! You do not even look like the same person. Your eyes are more open and alert and your skin just glows. You look fabulous ~ congratulations!!:carrot:

You look wonderful. And I bet you feel loads better too. I have been watching your posts and been inspired. Thanks for sharing!!!!

I know you are on a modified carb/calorie diet. Do you have a typical days menu, or do you wing it and keep track??

Thanks, Bunti!

In this run-up to Christmas (eating up to make space for festive food), coupled with weather bad enough to limit my shopping choices a bit, I've been more winging it but I've been trying:
to keep my carbs at 40-50%
to keep my calories at 1400 (apart from a recent 30 day flirtation with 1200)

My standbys are
Breakfast: 1/4 cup oats microwaved with water + 4oz plain set yogurt and 1/2oz ground flaxseed/nut mix + 1 tsp sugar
Lunch or Dinner: 4-6oz king prawns (shrimp?) either with mayo and salad, or with stir-fried veggies.

The first keeps me full for hours and the nut/sugar mix tastes decadent.
The prawns are such a luxury food from childhood that again they taste a real, decadent treat, and have very few calories.

I always log 1 pt of semi-skimmed milk into my budget. I don't very often have any milk at all in my coffees throughout the day but try to have a 'treat' cup of milky coffee in the evening. It only takes 1/2pt, so that gives me a 100 calorie buffer.

Once Christmas has gone (I'm so looking forward to Christmas this year!), oh yes, and the Israel trip in January, I'm going to do a month of the Carb Lovers Diet, using their actual recipes, not just their rough principles.
