Newbie here. My name is Jenn. I've been lurking for a bit, and y'all seem like a great group. I've just finished two weeks of vlc, and did a fat fast this week. I feel great! I can't wait to get home and see if I had a loss. I travel every week for work, so I weigh in on saturdays.
I have chronic thyroiditis & hashimotos. I have frequent autoimmune atttacks that wear me down, So me saying I feel great says alot to be sure.
I have type 2 diabetes. I was on victoza and metformin twice a day. I stopped my victoza 6 months ago. Next goal is to get off the metformin. My endo is good about lettingme experiment as long as I keepa close watch on things. I have not taken metformin since Monday. I was worried about low bs with the fat fast. My numbers have been getting better every day, and have been more steady. Not as spiky. I think adding a bit of walking will getme where I want to be.
I've just read why we get fat. My science of low carb is waiting for me when I get home and I can't wait. Im ordering a ketometer this weekend. Its nice to be here, and have you all as such great resources. :)
