The picture that changed everything

Before and after

Before and after

Annelie Löfgren told her story on our Swedish Facebook page:

When I saw the picture to the left I decided that this had gone too far. This was in July 2012.

I’m so happy that I found LCHF. I’m so happy that I gave myself the chance to feel good!

Now I’m 88 lbs (40 kg) lighter since the summer of 2012. I’ve managed to squeeze in a pregnancy and son number three in between too! (A beloved little Theodor, whom in all likelihood wouldn’t exist, had I not found LCHF.)

Now I have the chance to live with them for a longer time! I also have the chance to stay longer in my profession as a hair dresser. Not finished yet, but soon! :)

Congratulations, Annelie!

    OMG. What a transformation, in such a short time. Had I myself not discovered LCHF, I'd consider this a fraud. :)

    Wow, well done such a brilliant result for your effort &hard work Annelie.
    I have been following this method for a considerable time too.
    I'm not Obese, just about 7 - 10 kilos overweight. Even this amount is too much.
    I carry a lot of fat on my body, the visible fat I feel is just being an external indicator of what's going on internally........ What is the answer ? I keep trying but nothing helps.
    I guess having a naturally high blood Insulin level no matter if I am on a carb free diet well 20g per day, of non processed veg/fruit carb, doesn't have a visible effect. I'm hoping the lowered intake of Glucose containing and producing diet is at least helping me internally........
    Though blood tests indicative of 'fatty liver' don't bode well........Yvie

    Heh. I notice one of the Swedish commenters pointed out something I noticed too - she's basically turning into a young Agnetha Fältskog. Which is no bad thing!

    Wow, you're story is so inspiring! Almost brought tears to my eyes to see such a transformation. Way to go!

    Oh My Wow!

    I wish I could know more about her story. I'm at that exact same stage. I saw that picture of me a few months back and started doing LCHF. And I feel amazing! And now I just found out I'm pregnant, really thought that would put a 9 months stop to my weight loss. Maybe it doesn't have to??
    I really wish I could know more about how she did it :)
    And yes, what a transformation! Like the cliché says: The biggest difference is in her smile :)

    Charlotte, why would you want to lose weight during a pregnancy? The focus should be on you being healthy and developing a healthy baby. There are physicians who promote the LCHF diet and should be able to advise you on what to do during pregnancy.
