Had a check up with my endo last week and got great news. I have lost 40 lbs in the last year and my blood sugar numbers are so good. He was really thrilled with me and told me to keep up the good work. I was so very proud of myself. I will keep going and maybe this time next year I will have lost another 40 lbs and possible come off of some of my meds.

What wonderful news! Please share with us some of the things that you did that you think made the difference. We would all love to try out our ideas as well.

Again, congratulations! Great goal for next year too.

I started on Victoza which has curbed my appetite but I also changed the way I eat. I cut out alot of carbs and cut way back on my portions. Let me tell you, it was not easy. Still have a long way to go. Took alot of years to put the weight on, will take time to take it off. I have also come to accept that only I can control my diabetes, not a doctor or meds (although the meds help). Thanks for the good wishes.
