Started regime on 1st September 2016. Weight 13 stone and being a vertically challenged 72 year old grandad was classed as overweight and pre-diabetic. Set myself the challenge of getting blood sugar and weight down. Took excellent advise from this site and read the Blood Sugar Diet book. Didn't follow the diet but heeded the advise. By end of November blood sugar levels normal . By second week in January BMI calculation showed me as "healthy" . Also got correct waist circumference to height ratio in good order I.e. Waist should ideally be half height or less. Set target for going on holiday tomorrow and met it today. Total loss 26 lbs. next target is to see a "10" on the scale and keep it there. Positives- feel great, jackets and shirts all button up. Negatives - all trouser too loose! I have not followed any "diets" as such and not done lots of calorie counting, just cut right back on the white stuff - bread, rice, spuds and pasta. It works. All good fortune to you all. YOU can do it - if I can so can you!
