I suggest that you look into the vegan lifestyle for food options. I helped my MIL who has diabetes go from taking insulin 3 times a day to off medication completely by switching her to a plant based vegan diet. Her blood work numbers are also improving

Well, because of having to manage the diabetes ... I am reporting back to state that I continued to go well below my goal weight ... down to 129 pounds.

A pair of dress slacks that didn't fit me right 5 years ago, was pulled out of the closet I tried them on. Now I hung them in more damp environs so the wrinkles could air out.

Because they fit me perfectly now, and I will wear them to work Monday.

Unfortunately, I didn't have a whole truckload of "skinny" clothes, because again--I'd been below my goal weight. Did not stay there.

But still I feel like I just went shopping in my closet !

After over three years of being on Spark People, I am finally back at goal weight.

I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes 7 weeks ago; one of the not-too-common Type 2's, who, nearing 59, loses weight rapidly as a presenting symptom of the condition and NOT going through the pre- stage.

Which is a made up disease, anyhow

Also am fighting this disease ...

Now on 1,200 calories a day with MY lifestyle ...
