Hi Kim, and welcome to the team. Congratulations on being able to come off of your blood pressure and cholestrol meds. Don't get discouraged because the scale is stuck. That happens to us all. If you continue to eat right, exercise, drink plenty of water, etc. it will start to move again. Just being taken off of the two meds should be an excellent motivator for you!!! If you keep up with your healthy habits, you might eventually be able to reduce or come off of the metformin. I wish you much success!!! emoticon

Hi Kim, welcome to the team! Way to go on improving your #s & being able to reduce medication. Just as you saw success with initial weight loss after diagnosis, you will see this thru. You can do this one step @ a time.

Hi everyone!

My name is Kim, and I'm new to the group. I was diagnosed with type 2 on January 5th, 2012. Biggest eye opener of my life. My BG was 301 at the Dr. office. I also had hypertension and high cholesterol and high blood fat. I was 34 at the time. My doc put me on Metformin, Lovastatin, and Lisinopril.

A little over a year later, I've been taken off the blood pressure and cholesterol medications, and continue to take 1,000mg Metformin twice daily. It's been an uphill battle, although I've had a great time learning so much about myself fitness wise. I hired a personal trainer, and he has me doing so many things I never imagined I'd ever do: boxing/kickboxing, spartan training, crossfit inspired workouts, etc.

Unfortunately, now I'm at the point where I'm starting to lose motivation, as my weight isn't budging at all. It's very discouraging, but I keep doing what I need to do. After all, I'm fighting for my life. I'm married, but don't have kids yet. These life changes will guarantee that I'll be around to raise them when the time comes.

Anyway, I'm a very open person, so if you have any questions for me, just ask! I look forward to being an active member of this wonderful group!

Kim :)
