Sorry for the duplicate post, new to these forums....


Here's a before pic from a few years back. I'm on the left incase you haven't figured? Pretty much the same for about 19 years hovering between 195-225 lbs. Was on a high carb/low saturated fat eating regimen along with my "crazy" cycling regimen for that period and was successful controlling T2 diabetes.

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, too old for this...the 60's mellow one out significantly.

I have done low carb, but wanted to go extreme and I just started ketosis. I heard your not supposed to exercise a lot?.. but that sounds crazy though!
for those who have lost so much weight did you exercise a lot or just eat no carbs? or both?
thanks! keep up the good work!

Ok... wasn't going to do this, but since I got so much out of YOUR pictures, it's only right to share mine.

Before... years ago, but close to my all time high.

He's actually smaller now than in any of these pictures.
Wow, Laurie!!!! You and your husband look fantastic, truly an inspiration for us all. Congratulations!!

Everyone looks soooo amazing!! Congratulations to ALL of you, and thanks for sharing. I almost didn't want to post mine because it's obviously a BEFORE and DURING...as I still have a long way to go to AFTER pictures. But it does help me keep things in perspective.

WOW guys!!! You all look absolutely AMAZING. These transformations are incredible and such a testiment to our WOE.

Samantha, I do workout intensely while in ketosis. I've done both ChaLean Extreme and P90X while in Ketosis. I never suffered from lack of energy (EVER) and my strength INCREASED during both programs. Right now, I still lift heavy, but do minimal cardio because I've learned that for me, extra cardio doesn't make a big difference in my weight loss so long as I'm on plan with my eating. So if I can achieve the same end result in half the time, guess which option I'm going with.

Here are my pictures. The heavier picture is fall 08, the after is spring 09. I'm down another 5 lbs since the after pic.

ok, I just noticed that my pictures above attached as thumbnails instead of regular images, I'm sorry...still kind of new to this. I think if you click on the thumnails, they will open up into a full image.

Oh, another thing, I was 196 in my before picture, and 155 in the after. I maintained the 155 weight throughout the summer counting carbs only. Another thing I've learned about me is that I can MAINTAIN without counting calories, BUT, if I'm in weight-loss mode, I have to pay attention to my calories as well as my carbs...and since I'm trying to shed these last few pounds, I'm tracking calories now.
