We're really proud of you. You're an example of what can be done. I have a friend who did something similar who was an inspiration to me, and now I'm off my diabetic meds too and have lost weight, though not as much as you. Kudos!

Hats off to you. To have control over your health is such an amazing feeling and accomplishment. WTG

Way to go! As a health care provider it is always so rewarding to hear of patients taking control of their lives through diet and exercise. I always tell patients that they could be off a lot of their meds if they would commit to doing what you just described! Keep spreading the word! Congrats !

Way to go! You are an inspiration to me and others. It can be done!

That is awesome! Good for you. I love reading your success. I have a family member who's dealt with diabetes for years. Rather than treat it with proper diet and exercise, he said he'd rather just take the meds and now he's suffering big time for it. It's hard to see him suffer when we all know that with making some changes his outcome could be drastically different. So whenever I see someone who battles their diabetes with a healthy lifestyle, that makes me so proud and happy for that person. Good for you and lots of luck on your continued journey.

I just had to share this, really not meaning to brag. It's foremost in my life right now (besides a recent severe leg injury in a bicycle accident). It was emotional for me today and a testament to regaining control of my LIFE. Saw my doctor today...

I am on a quest to rid myself of diabetes medication therapy (over 15 years) and return to better health and fitness. In June, my PCP doc decided that mealtime insulin was necessary to control high blood sugar levels. Whoa. I said: NO. He gave me 3 months to show progress and gain control. July 1 to Oct.1. 3 months. Joined Set some goals and stuck with them. Daily, sometimes hourly. Online and via smartphone.

I've lost 44 pounds in 3 months. A1C from 7.9 to 5.6. Fasting morning glucose: from130 to 60 this morning. Liver panel: back to normal. BP: ideal (or even low). Cholesterol: all within the ideal ranges. 3 of 5 meds dropped. A 4th, halved. Lantus insulin at night: now 50% less. And I've only just begun.

Thank you, I believe in you. After years of trying and failing ... You're the only support that works.
