Donna - 66 grams of sugar in a salmon dinner! Yikes! I wouldn't have thought it possible.
Joanna - I'm glad you recognized your low blood sugar problem so quickly.
Epixi - Yes, 20# is possible and you'll get there and exceed that.
I keep thinking about how healthy we all must be getting. I've been watching a series called "The Food Hospital" where they try to cure people's various ailments through diet. The changes after just 8-12 weeks are frequently amazing. Some things, like depression, are evaluated by self-report, so there could be a placebo effect going on there. But changes in things like cholesterol, blood sugar, fat in the liver, etc. are measured scientifically. And changes in skin disorders like exzema and psoriasis can be seen visually. Anyway, despite how fast (or slow!) we're losing weight, our internal systems have to be so much healthier.
