Can you assist me?


Good morning Forum members. A bit of background information about me.  I  am a 78 year old pensioner who is determined to change his life and his world.  About 3 months ago I decided that I was sick and tired of looking at an out of condition body in the mirror. For a long while I was using a walking stick and had very limited mobility – the GP and the specialist said that I would never be pain free – basically get used to it!

I made a life changing decision, I stopped using the walking stick and left my knee and ankle braces off. Yes it did hurt but it did start to improve.  I mentioned to my new GP that I wanted to lose weight and increase my mobility.  At that point in time I had dropped from 101.6Kilos to 96.5Kilos.

Then I started on the Keto diet. By the end of day 5 I was down to 93.8Kilos. My blood sugar started at 9.5, went up to 10.3 and this morning was sitting at 8.7.

My questions are: 1) Is it usual for the weight to fluctuate and not show a dramatic improvement?

2) How quickly can I expect my blood sugar levels to drop. One of my objectives is to get off my type 2 medication. I do not want to go onto insulin.

I have made a couple of small changes in my diet, I introduced Greek Yoghurt and a small amount of 95% cocoa chocolate.

I have been receiving lots of emails – which one or which video do you believe that I should focus on.   I have set my first target weight at 85 followed by a review that will take me down to 80kgs.  Blood sugar – my objective is to be free of all medication. What do you people suggest I should do.


Kindest regards


Chas Monk

Hey Chas-congrats on the improvements you’ve been making in your life! It sounds to me that the free 7 day challenge might be a good place to start! Louise has created meal plans that are delicious, affordable and easy to follow. Perhaps it could be something in your daily intake that is causing the weight to just fluctuate. If you have type 2 diabetes you also want to keep your carbs to 20 total per day to get your body reset.  Stay in touch with your doctor though to make sure you are being monitored. 🙂 Good luck!! Come join the challenge!
