Congrats! I dropped 45lbs a few years ago and have kept it off. It feels great! Granted much of that weight loss was due to an overpriced diabetes medication "side effects".

Moving out to the sticks without the takeout joint the wife & I like should get use started. I'll be near a big lake & might just take up fishing. The trip to the grocery store is 30 minutes & running the current 3 minutes down should cut out more.

Download the My fitness pal app and count every single calorie. I’ve averaged 10 lbs per month loss. I’m working out six days a week too though. So that has accelerated the drop I’m sure.

I too have started to lose weight due to Diabetes. Said to lose weight and eat better and exercise. Last May I started after my last DR. appt. at 247. Down 60 lbs today mostly through intermittent fasting and keto and eating less when I do eat. Hasn't been that hard but kind of tedious. I feel much better so there is that. Blood sugar should be around normal this time so going to try and reduce some meds if DR agrees.

I got labs back today for my next endocrinologist visit. A1C when this started was 12.6 and todays results after eating better/fasting and minor row/bike workouts for 15 minutes each has resulted in a A1C of 5.6 today. Going to lose another 20 and then try and get off medicine if possible.
Dang - that A1C was not good. Glad you made the change.

Dont want to toot my horn, phuck that bs.... toot too loudly, but I'm down to 218 lbs on my scale. At the end of November after surgery I was 238 lbs on my scale. 20 lbs inn 3 months. Nice slow steady weight loss.

I see the doc next month and hope I can get off some of my meds as well.

It's been a long journey thru lots of surgeries but I was 350 about 9 years ago.

I was 225 lbs back when I was still working but I was a big weight lifter so it looks a lot different 20 plus years later.

Well see where I level off.

My secret is limited junk, less than 2000 calories a day and walking a mile 3 times a week. I need extra pain meds to walk that 20 minutes cause that's about my limit before pain gets too bad but I figure it's a fair trade off.

Have a full cardiac work up in a couple weeks so we will see if there is any improvement there. Not expecting much as all was normal with good stress test last time.

I still think of my self in my 30s even though I'm over 50 so I wanna live a couple more decades.

Never let them cut on your back until all other options are exausted. They never stop.

Damn, I never had an A1c that high. I think high 8s was my worst. Mines been hovering around normal thanks to meds. No insulin yet so I'm hoping to dump some of those meds in a month or 2 as well.

Keep it up. Keep on top of the weight daily. It's easier to lose a lbs or two that it is to lose 20 or 30.
