Hi there, enjoying my weight loss

Hi 

last year (July 2015) I was diagnosed with T2 diabetes.

I weighed in at 94.4 kg and had an HbA1c at 53.

I went on a controlled diet and now am 74.6 Kgs with an HbA1c at 43 9 taken in Dec 2015 - so am expecting even lower now.

I dropped two sizes in clothes and am having to but a new wardrobe !

I know I probably feel smug about it, but am enjoying being able to run up the stairs without collapsing.

It's good when you start to notice real, positive changes, isn't it?  I wore a pair of "old", i.e. pre-weight-loss, trousers to work today. Every time I saw myself in the mirror I had to laugh - I looked like a tramp, they were so loose and baggy. Won't be doing that in a hurry again!

Always good to hear a success story, especially where your health is concerned! 

I have been trotting up the stairs today carrying the vacuum cleaner, and thought to myself that this probably weighs as many lbs as I have lost - and my knees are not complaining any more!  These are moments to be relished!

Wow that's brilliant.  Hba1c down to aim of  41 and you will have gone from the diabetes range, through the pre diabetes range and back to normal. How wonderful :-)
