A few years ago Johanna was scheduled for gastric bypass surgery for her obesity. At the hospital she got cold feet and declined. Instead she went on a low-carb diet and lost 112 lbs. (51 kg):
So what has happened since then? She just sent an update:
I just had to send you these pictures of myself! There are five years between the pictures.
I have sometimes struggled to be strict, but then I’ve made an effort to, and felt so much better. I know my body doesn’t tolerate sugar and simple carbohydrates. I still have a few pounds left to my goal weight.
I work out four times a week. I never thought I’d be able to do this!
I would never have done this well or felt so good, if it weren’t for low carb! I don’t feel five years older – more like five years younger!
All the best and thank you!
Congratulations on your fantastic weight journey and for keeping it up, Johanna!
