My husband is a type 2 diabetic who quickly grew tired of the oral med routine. He gained about 50 pounds and was still having difficult numbers. He decided to follow my lead and decided to take insulin exclusively. He takes Lantus at bedtime for his basal and had been injecting Novalog for meals. I say "had been" because he no longer needs to inject for meals.
In March, he saw me losing weight with Medifast and decided he wanted to finally lose weight too. He adopted a plan he read about on CNN:
That's exactly what he's been doing since March, and he's lost 46 pounds so far. He keeps his foods mostly lower carb because he gets better quality food that way.
It can be done!
type 1 diabetic,
showing this disease who's boss!
February 2013: NEW GOAL! I've lost 60 pounds to date, so it's time to kick these last few to the curb!
