Default Before & After

I know this is not fly fishing related but close,

Time to buy new waders and clothes since I have lost 36 plus pounds since mid September. I can now swim in my current waders and I dropped two sizes in clothes, good excuse to purchase new fishing attire with my Christmas money J I took the before picture in Arizona @ Nissan Tech Center on September 27 and the after picture same place on December 7

Congrats! Hope you get alot of money for xmas as besides waders you may need new boots, pants, shirts, gloves, hats, sun glasses. Thats alot of weight in only 2 - 1/2 months. Do you have less energy after losing so fast? What weight loss program did you use?

Most important question is are you catching more fish?

Thanks guy's


Wt bash,

Just watching my intake.

My secret is no sweets or breads, just trying to keep the sugar and carbohydrates level at their lowest. My father’s lost a leg December 6 from diabetes and I don’t want to follow his footsteps since I am a type 2 diabetic. The doctor said a couple of weeks ago if I stay on this path she will eventually take me off my Metformin completely.....good news to my ears.


Osok,

I have ten times more energy now than back a few months ago and definitely catching more fish…….I can cover more river now J

This is a good thread! I know people who have diabetic problems and I have lobbied for over 20 years that the diet was at the root of their health issues. Neither has changed their spots and they are on the same countermeasure you are taking. One fellow is in danger of losing both feet at this time but continues to eat sweets and a high fat diet.

They say "talks cheep" and that it's easy for me to tell someone else what to do or how to live, but I try to practice what I preach and do not understand the direction my friends have chose. I wish you great success in seeing the day your doctor gives you a clean bill of health in relation to being on that medication.

The big D disease seems to be on a tear into familes how a days. And yes it seems most all people you know with it are overweight. A few exceptions are just unlucky and their body can not process sugar properly. I watched my mother die a slow horrible death due to it. First the toes went, then the legs, then blindness and finally heart disease, all due to Diabeties.

Again Congrats on the weight loss and good luck keeping it off. Witnessing your father's experience can be a big influence.
