After pic as of late...



Here I am at the Hostelshoppe recumbent rally 6/09, sorry but no more recent pics. Back to high school wt. 6'-0", 165lbs., currently down to 159lbs. though...

Will find a older pic to show where I started from and post later....

More important and the reason for my VLC regimen is to keep BS levels in control which went out of wack after nearly 2 decades.

On the Left....



Pretty much what I looked like for 19 yrs. yo-yo ing around the lower 200lb. range 195-225 lbs. or so....but my BS was fine controlled with eating tons of carbs/little meat except fish and some chicken. My riding (over 10,000 miles/yr.) demanded high glucose levels daily.

8/12/2000 Picture is of the support team assisting Byron Gremley set the then new 12 hour recumbent world record of over 240 miles under the sanction of the UMCA (Ultra Marathon Cycling Association). http://www.ultracycling.com/records/...ecord2000.html

In my early 50's as pictured above, I was still a pretty good rider....but today my VOmax has taken a huge decline and now all I do is "fat burning" rides.....with the "women." No I'm NOT a chauvinist pig.

You all are so much help for people like me who really have a hard time making up their mind about this. I've done Atkins before and lost 50 lbs only to put it right back on. My fault I know. Now I'm making a New Years Resolution to do it again plus some. Coming on here and looking at you all makes me think it is possible. Please keep them coming!!! I need support!!!!

I finally got around to putting my pictures in my gallery. I'm not sure how to post in a thread. I have about 25-30 pounds to go. Then they want to work on my other knee.

I guess they didn't go in my gallery but when I looked under my control panel they are there in an album. Here is a link hope it works

Awesome job! How tall are you?

Well, I used to be 5' 4" but after I blew out the discs in my back I lost an inch so I'm 5' 3" now.

I have a very wide rib cage no matter what I weigh. I was wearing 38 bras when I was 108 lbs. So I always look a bit wide. The bumps under my boobs in the shorts photo are my ribs.

BTW, this weight loss has been maintained without exercise because of my disc and tendon problems. Obviously it would be nice to be able to exercise, but for those who have problems that make it difficult or dangerous, my experience should be encouraging.

I am really trying to get over my horror of photographs so I can do the publicity stuff I'm going to have to do for my novels this fall. You guys have been really helpful!

bloodsugar101 you look great and makes me feel better knowing you lost so much without exercise. I do miss it though and it's tough for me to just sit.

MsWoods you look great and we are all a work in progress.

I would love to exercise, but I have something wrong where with just normal activity my tendons get damaged. It takes many months for them to recover. I've got a bad elbow right now from lifting a mixing bowl off a high shelf and finally recovered from a tendon tear in my foot I got just doing 40 minute daily walks summer of 2008.

Very frustrating, but after about 8 of these injuries I've had to accept that I have to be extremely careful.

Here is me through my journey....

Me with a beer ) a favorite treat

Me again wow.... i have not seen this picture for a while. I remember sending it to my friends that have last seen me at 130 lbs... they must have been shocked.... This one is at about 190 lbs

and then i discovered Atkins.
i started in the mid Jan 2009...
and this is me June 2009
at about 160


End of July at 155 or so


October 2009 at about 148 lbs...I started doing yoga which helped me to get down below 150.

Today I am about 153... that considering all the sugar i ate during hollidays. I was allowing myself bread and sweats since thanksgiving up until last week... Then some friends came over with a huge box of chocolate covered cookies.... almost half of them are gone now ....
