A couple years ago I lost 30 lb over about 7 months. The initial week or two getting started was the hardest. I mostly lost between 1 and 2 lbs a week for the first few months then started tapering off the strict diet. Ive mostly maintainded the weight although it's started back up in the last couple months so I need to cut out the extra snacks...

@David: I had a dashiki once which I used to wear when I was at training college [...] my teacher used to call me "Nkrumah" after Kwame Nkrukah, ex leader of Ghana.

You are a man with many stories to tell -- I can't wait to see you at EELive! 2015 to blow the froth off a beer or three.

There's an easy way to lose 50 pounds..... involving a British casino!  but seriously.... the problem isn't really "will" power; it's "won't" power!

@David @Mhrackin: Max, mhrackin above called you out over "pouring over the ancient texts of sprout lore" but the subtlety of his comment obviously did not get to you.  You POUR water over sprouts to cook them, but you PORE over old texts.

I saw that, but I couldn't recall the "pore" form (my mind is going) -- so I thought "don't think and it will come to you" then I forgot all about it LOL -- I just went in and made the change

FYI I just read a BRILLIANT book called "Spell it Out: The Curious, Enthralling, and Extrordinary Story of English Spelling" -- if you ever wondered why we have words spelled differently that sound the same, and words spelled the same that sound different ... this book explains all -- it's 100% recommended.

@mhrackin: ..."pouring over the ancient texts of sprout lore"?  I hope they survive the anointing.

Good eye -- I just made the fix

@David: I recently saw a recipe for Brussels Sprout salad - you shave the leaves into very thin strips, not sure what was with it though, I'll look it up.

I saw a recipe for that somewhere recently also -- that's got to be healthy for you, plus it has the added advantage that no one will steal your lunch from the refrigerator LOL

That reminds me of Red Dwarf when Holly (the ships computer) tells Dave Lister that they ran out of cow's milk ages agoi and he's been drinking dog's milk. Holly goes on to say that dog's mikk has two main advantages -- it lasts for ever because no one will drink it, and if it goes off you can't tell the difference LOL

@MeasurementBlues: The goal is just to lose 2 lbs a month over a year. that shouldbe enough to lower the gluose levels.

That's certainly doable -- it's just a matter of sticking to it -- for myself, I'd love to lose 50 pounds, but I have a huge problem in the form "lack of willpower + love of beer/bacon" (sad face)

I'm a big fan of the Brussels Sprout myself,  Probably second only to Leeks as my favourite veggie,  I recently saw a recipe for Brussels Sprout salad - you shave the leaves into very thin strips, not sure what was with it though, I'll look it up.  And I am up early, before breakfast, reading this and being regaled with tales of Brussels Sprouts with onion and garlic.  You're a cruel man.

Max, mhrackin above called you out over "pouring over the ancient texts of sprout lore" but the subtlety of his comment obviously did not get to you.  You POUR water over sprouts to cook them, but you PORE over old texts.  At which stage the sweat might be pouring from your pores, but I digress.   This is a man who is writing a book on English as she is spoke.  Shame on you!

And lastly, the joke about the blonde...  I heard a much better version where she is diagnosed with acute angina.  I'll send you the rest......

And ABF (Absolutely bloody finally) I had a dashiki once which I used to wear when I was at training college.  This was in the Rhodesia of Ian Smith, a bastion of white rule against all the other African countries which were being handed over to the black majority.  And the Dasiki was a very African dress.  So I got a few comments...my teacher used to call me "Nkrumah" after Kwame Nkrukah, ex leader of Ghana.  I guess the Dashiki is the African version of your Hawaiian shirt....

AABF - Max, how about combining Brussel Sprouts with Bean Sprouts?

@mhrackin

thanks for the encouragement. I don;t need to lost that much. Lost 7 lbs. in the first month. The goal is just to lose 2 lbs a month over a year. that shouldbe enough to lower the gluose levels. I'll get a blood test around September.

At first, I was getting hungry a lot but just kept working through it. Hunger is subsided now.
