gLAD u got the fat off and that blood pressure down.
I've been reading Richard Bernstein MD's wonderful book "The Diabetes Solution." He's had Type 1 diabetes since he was 12 and he is 78 now. He has lectures on YouTube that are so good. He treats mostly patients with Type 2 diabetes. I have Insulin Resistance so I don't want Type 2.
I started at about 172 in March 2012, and lost 41 pounds. This was after years of being up to 235 and finally losing to 185. Then I had a stroke and lost down to 135 in summer 2008. Stayed there for three years and then gained weight. Didn't stop it because I thought my lack of energy was due to such low weight. It must have been due to the stroke, because I found at 172 that I finally had more energy, but also more trouble with blood pressure and diabetes. When my weight is low, diabetes is back to prediabetes level, and blood pressure is easier to control. This time as I lost,I found I kept my energy.
I was down to 131 pounds by last fall, then gained 14 pounds over winter. I've been ok with that but was having trouble going back to summer weight of 131 to 135. I've finally upped my exercise enough that I'm losing again, and thoroughly enjoy it.
