Yes, I could be in much worse shape and have to take off much more weight. I inherited my diabetes from my dad and grandmother and have to pay real close attention. I do not intend to take the same path my father did which ended up with him on dialysis. No thank you.
Great that you are getting it back off now when it is only 23# and not 63#. Don't quit. Read "WHY WE GET FAT AND WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT" by Gary Taubes. He says INSULIN is our real problem, and all the sugar/starches we eat today.

Good morning everyone. Today being the first day of the week, is the same as the first day of the rest of my life. So it's time for me to get back on track.
I went west to Seattle for my daughter's wedding and ate too much restaurant food and wedding food and on the road traveling food.
I've gained weight, that I don't want, back and now I am back up to needing to drop 23 pounds. Since accountability is something that works well for me, I am using the nutrition tracker to keep track of everything that goes into my mouth.
I've sworn off the white sugar desserts and will only have a small treat dessert once a week. I am paying attention to how much I actually eat and making sure I eat more protein and good fats and less carbs.
