Hi, Morgan! I'm very happy to hear that you are doing so well.  Smiley Smiley Smiley

Regarding your motivation toward exercise...

You have to set realistic goals for yourself if you expect to have long term positive results.
The first goals should be small and easy to achieve. Make the first one something like 5 minutes on the treadmill at a lower speed. Then, increase slowly from there. As your success record grows, so will your motivation to continue. If you make exercise part of your lifestyle, like FTS, there will be no need to obsess over it. Just enjoy it.  Smiley

Me, like you, I continue to live the FTS lifestyle but so not obsess over it. I am still close to goal weight. I weigh in once in a while. When I notice the scale creeping upward, I reduce my carb-count and food volume for a time until the extra weight comes off. This has been working great for me.

Hello everyone, just touching base to see how everyone is going with their "trials and tribulations".   How's the goal setting??  The triumphs?? The tears and frustrations??   Good??  Glad to hear it.  I've been doing well and have lost 18kgs (40lb - wow, haha, gotta say it sounds heaps more in poundage) since mid October last year - approx 32 wks or so.  That might not mean a lot to some in the length of time,  but this is a post menopausal woman here and it is a heap better than putting it on.   I've sauntered through this not really putting much effort (when I say not much effort - I am following the guidelines, but I am not stressing or obsessing) into it to be honest, just taken it day by day.  I keep telling myself I must start to exercise but I'm hard put to get motivated to do anything let alone exercise.  It is the beginning of winter here and it is absolutely freezing already.  But each day I am getting closer to that treadmill set up in the lounge room.  I'll get there - maybe I'm waiting for a plateau to actually have to shake my body up to keep losing.  I see it for what it is - an EXCUSE.  I know it, I own it, I WILL??? overcome it.    Grin

Hope everyone is well and doing well.

Hi Morgan,
I am much better, back to all housework. My doctor ordered a Stat CT scan of my liver. When that came back he ordered blood tests for hepatitis A and B. Hopefully I will know this week.

Housework is so overrated......😃

I appreciate your support and will keep you updated. My energy is coming back. Without coffee or caffeine. I am having a difficult time sitting still for too long. I am doing 5 slow squats 3 times a day and walking as much as I can. I don't do dishes yet but I definitely am cooking again. Back in low carb and it feels so good!!!

Hi Suz... Unfortunately "the horse is out of the barn" as my doctor would say. Over the years of high triglycerides caused by high sugar in my system. The plaque that built up in my arteries in lay terms is "hardening of the arteries plaque" This type of plaque stays hard, real hard condensed against the arterial walls. THEN something makes it soften and expand like a sponge closing off the arteries. My blockage in my left anterior was 98%. That required a stent about 8 years ago. Unfortunately throughout my system there are other areas of hard plaque, that's the docs words. SO, will it happen again? Don't know.  I've been taking Buckwheat supplements as a natural way to break down the plaques. That's the claim the industry states... Umpa approved Smiley Anyway, the question of course to the doc was what is the something that activates the plaque... His answer was stress. 

Hope you get well soon.

Hi, Susie.

I really hope the blood test is comprehensive enough to uncover the cause of your inflammation.

Sadly since Big Pharma has its greedy paws all over medical science (especially medical research), it can be very challenging finding a doctor that looks beyond the symptom (cholesterol blockage in arteries which is treated with dangerous statin drugs) to the root cause of the inflammation.

I will continue to pray for you. And I pray that your doctors find the wisdom to find the root cause of your arterial inflammation.

Tony
