You are doing fabulous already, but if you want to improve things a little more add a little strength training. It doe not have to be heavy-duty at all, maybe twice a week for 20 minutes would be great to start. It helps me so much. Gaining muscle will improve insulin-sensitivity and while it may not do that much to reduce total weight (because muscle weighs something, too) it will speed up the process of losing body fat a little.
Even some body weight exercise alone can do a lot.

MAJOR applause for you in order! That's just awesome. You have your goals, your action plan and you are working your plan. And IT'S working. Good job.

Walking and cutting the carbs WAY down was my way of losing weight too. So, keep on doing what you're doing.

So proud of you.

James,

Yes absolutely cut my carbs. At this time my carbs stay around 40 or under. Usually under, I am eating clean as they say, or nothing processed for lack of better words. Low Carb High Fat. All of my blood was excellent. Calories I stay around 1200-1300. And I walk. and I walk, and oh BTW I walk. :)

Awesome! I'm so happy for you! Your doctor is more open-minded then many and now he will be even more open-minded. You are helping more people than just yourself by letting your doctor see how people CAN change.

Congratulations!

I am so excited I couldn't wait to share with everyone. Today was the big check up with my endo. I already knew what my blood results were, which were excellent. A1C 5.5 couldn't believe. When I walked in the nurse weighed me, had me sit down and then very casually, said "so you had surgery recently" I was like no, no surgery does it say that in my chart. She well no but you've lost so much weight since January I thought you had gastric bypass. I was thrilled. I said no, just a lot of hard work.

My endo was just speechless, he kept smiling and saying wow. This is excellent. He had no issue with low carb, no issues with stopping my insulin and has agreed that he is on board with us cutting my orals meds in half. Even wrote me a new prescription to so I don't have to cut my current pills in half. So now I will drop from 1000 2x a day, to 500 2x a day. I will need to monitor and watch and record to see how the change in medication will affect me. We will adjust up or down as numbers come in. He said if I keep melting, maybe I will be able to come off my meds all together. Even though I've been hoping and planning for it all along. It was the first time i've heard him say it. He was smiling ear to ear and so excited.

So next appt is in October and I'm hoping that will be meds free, if not free at that time, then maybe down to 500 1x a day.

So exciting. So excited to see the doctor happy with me. Just couldn't wait to share this good news with everyone.

Doc scale was 2 pounds different than mine. But I don't think that was to bad. It was 2 in the afternoon and I weigh in the morning. But still 2 lbs different not bad. I was okay with it . I know every scale is a little different.
