I just have to say that this year I have something additional to be thankful for. Over 5 years ago I had to have a hysterectomy. At that time I was a good weight. I eat a good diet with good portion control and exercised. Naturally, I couldn't exercise for a good while after the surgery. I wasn't eating much but since my husband was getting means I had to settle for what I got. So when I started putting on weight i wasn't real worried. I figured soon I'd be eating right and exercising again. That just what I did. To my dismay, I continued to gain weight. About 1 1/2 years later I'd gained about 70 pounds. No matter what I did I couldn't loose it. I saw a nutritionist but that did no good. I actually changed doctors 3 times! When I tried to explain my problem they'd all just sort of look at me like "what's your point.". Finally I went to a new doctor last June. On my first visit I told him about my problem in loosing weight and all I was doing to try to loose. To my shock, he closed the lap top, moved his chair in front of me and actually listened. Then he immediately said we would change my meds a bit I should start taking byetta. The first month I was on half dose. Then in July I began taking the full (10) dose. I gave Actually lost 24.5 pounds!!! Also my A1C is 6.2!!!!! Previous checkup it was 8.7. FINALLY! Thank you LORD and thank you Dr Dobrose!!!!!
