Good News!

I had to share my good news with someone other than my husband or I will explode.

In September I went to the doctor and found out:

I was insulin resistant
deficient in vitamins A, D, B12
high levels of mercury/cadmium in my blood
adrenals were not right
low thyroid

He said to read Dr Atkins book and gave me some meds to fix the other stuff.

I had done Atkins with success in the past, but never stuck to it.

So today I went back and:

Insulin WAY down, on my way to reversing insulin resistance
Vitamin D and B12 good
blood levels of mercury are going down
And I've lost 16 pounds

Thank-you Dr Atkins(RIP)
Thank-you to the LC friends here that are supporting me on my path to health!
