Well this one thrills my heart. Back when I decided to go all out and leave the politics and other ramblings to others, one of the things I did was to send out an invitation to essentially my entire email contact list. I included descriptions of some of my own results and offered that people to receive an email notice with each post. All but about four have opted remain on the list
One gentleman, someone I've not seen in a few years, replied to say that my notice was very timely, that he has breached the 300 pound barrier, and feels both physically and mentally awful. We exchanged a couple of emails where I gave a tip or two, and then I haven't heard from him. Just the other day I was wondering if he was sticking with it, but decided I'd leave it to him to let me know. I woke up to this wonderful email this morning.
Well, I emailed you one month ago… and I have been rock solid, I still need to increase my workout, but I have not “cheated” on carbs for 4 or 5 weeks, and I am down about 30lbs! I finally dropped below 300lbs. Your blogs and emails have been fantastic. I felt you should know that your time spent HAS been useful and helpful to others. So thanks. What is funny is how much better I have felt. The carb rich diet was making me feel horrible.
It really is possible, folks. This is real. It's not diet and weight loss delusions, fads, and scams like green tea and acai berries (nothing wrong with either, but neither is any more particularly special that any other real food).
