I just passed three years since being diagnosed as T2. It's hard to believe it's been that long. My initial reaction was panic and utter rigidity, which brought my A1C down to 5.9 from 10.2 and my weight down quite a bit. Then I think I had a kind of "delayed denial," gained some of the weight back, and really struggled with compulsive, self-sabotaging eating. It showed in my August A1C of 6.5. I've been working on myself and my mind set and just got my latest results - A1C 6.1 and my lipids almost back where I want them. With all the help at this site and continued vigilance, I'm hoping to get back to where I was at year 1. But this time I don't mind getting there more slowly while I figure out how to really make this work for me. I love all the ideas I find here and the encouragement to tinker until you find what works. I'm hoping when I post next year, it will be good news again. Cheers!
