Hi! I just joined this team, thinking that maybe I could motivate myself a little more to reverse my pre-diabetes. I have been taking Metformin for years, but lately my fasting blood sugar has been dangerously close to full-blown, so I have finally become concerned.

I am currently seeing a Doctor who has put me on a low-carb, organic, raw foods eating plan, and although I have lost about 12 pounds with that, I have been stuck for the last 2 weeks.

The good news is though, my fasting BS in the morning is coming down! I have had 3 days this week under 100, after it had consistently been in the 120s for months. I think I have lost some inches, but the scale seems to be frozen right where it is. I have had this happen before, usually when I start up an exercise program. I guess it is normal to hit a plateau so I am trying not to get too discouraged. I also retain a lot of water just before my monthly cycle, so I am hoping it will go away in a few days and I'll see some more progress. I am focusing on drinking all my water so I can help to flush my system as much as possible to avoid retaining too much.

So, I would ultimately like to get off the Metformin, the Simvastatin (for cholesterol), and the Lisinopril-HCTZ (for blood pressure). It won't happen overnight, but the more I learn here, the more I will stay motivated. And, with any luck, the exercise program will help me break my plateau.

It is amazing how long it takes to finish something you aren't working on.
