Tomorrow it will have been 5 weeks since I started Atkins again. I’m not yodeling yet, but I’m not at all unhappy with my progress so far.

Links are still good: Click here for weight. (my BMI is under 40 for the first time in 6 or 7 years.) Click here for still-sorry Fitbit stats.

I’m finding Atkins fairly painless at this point. I need to increase my vegetable consumption and cut down on my use of protein powders, etc., but I am staying under 20 carbs a day. My fasting blood sugar morning counts are consistently under 85-90. My postprandial testing (1 hour and 2 hours after eating) seem to also be in the non-diabetic range. My NPH insulin has decreased from 16 units in the morning, 60 at night to zero in the AM, 40 at night. My blood pressure right now is: 125/88 with a resting pulse of 61. Not bad.

I thought, you know the food and the diet thing is one way to start yourself onto a healthy lifestyle, but if you don’t move, if you don’t start exercising you’re gonna deteriorate. — Warren Cuccurullo
