Ahh, hey, Cate! Good to see you. How are you and how's your dog doing?Hey, Rob
Excellent! I'm glad you have found what suits you.
The forum was down for a couple of weeks but has come back even better I think. We have more smilies too
This level of weight loss was incomprehensible to me even just last year. I've lost over 160 pounds from my max weight of 330 pounds in 2018. The WFPB diet dramatically lowered my resting heart rate and supposedly, from what I've heard and read about, inflammation. Apparently, even removing the fish will result in further improvement. One thing I've very noticeably realized is the benefit of soluble fiber on satiety. I dropped 31 pounds in 44 days. My RHR dropped by about 10 bpm. I did have initial water weight that was part of that 31 pounds. I feel great too mood-wise and self-esteem. I have a layer of fat on my belly area still along with loose skin. The skin is fine but I wonder about the layer of belly fat. Probably not going to get rid of it with diet alone.
Resistance training, the "right way" I might add, will be an undertaking. My goal is to improve and maintain my health over the very long-term. I.e., the rest of my life. I also aim to improve joint health and core and back stability and flexibility.
My dog Cam is doing well. She's a wonderful companion, loves people and other dogs.
