James getting back to his younger weight

I'm in my early 50's and 5'8" tall. I've battled my weight since I was about 15 years old. My highest weight was 217 pounds and is now on its way down.

My initial target weight was 168. I achieved that but still had some obvious fat on my belly and kidney areas. If there is fat on the outside of you then your body couldn't put any more fat on the inside of you and continued on the exterior. So my goal is to loose the exterior fat. My new goal is 155.

From about November 2012 until the present I've been eating low carb but not the Ideal Protein products (well probably 2 per week rather than 3 per day when on the plan). My weight is steady and my type 2 diabetes is under control. My doctor was very happy with my HGA1C test that shows about a 3 month blood sugar average.

April 2013 - I'm now beginning my last 10 pound loss. I'm at about 165 lbs. I'm maintaining well and happy with what I'm eating, though it is different than before I started Ideal Protein and then low carb eating. I'll be happy if I do this in 10 weeks.

July 2013 - My weight is unchanged, still 10 pounds away, but diabetes is still under control and that is a big victory in addition to the rolls of fat being gone. Also I'm basically eating the quantities of food that I want to eat, that is not a struggle. I just have to choose low carb things to start with.

Once I found out I had Diabetes I overhauled my entire diet. I went from 2% milk to unsweetened almond milk, from regular bread to Pepperidge Farm Carb style bread (that is the only grain I eat), then it is only nuts, proteins, green veggies and strawberries (in limited amounts). The weight is just dropping off me like a miracle. I'm losing anywhere between 1/2 a pound to 1 pound a day. I also got started on Metaformin 500 mg once a day and doctor's slowly increasing it. I'm now at 850 mg twice a day. Seeing the Endo dr. on June 3rd emoticon I also go to physical therapy 2-3 days a week.

Hi James. Thanks for commenting on my blog post from yesterday. I've actually been part of the Sparking Low Carb for quite awhile. I just haven't posted anything there in quite some time, nor have I been doing blog posts on my page all that much. Mainly this is because I found myself wandering off the path and into the woods. I have managed to get closer to the path and although I'm not necessarily 100% low carb, I am a lot closer. As I said in my blog, I am definitely "on the up." My blood sugar was at another rewardingly low point this morning and I am optimistic for tomorrow...

Hey James you said this morning you could give me a link on what to eat. If you could do that I would appreciate it.

James Thank you for a reply on Newly Diagnosed .... I don't know those answers yet. But I am doing great tracking food, weighing and measuring for portion control. .I think it's a fear of what I DON"T know and is there something else I should be doing.
