    I lost sixty pounds 3 times and this time I got down to 144.6 lbs and I fit into size 18 from wearing a 3x pants. I am 70 years old and sometimes my glucose reading is down to 74, sometimes 81 before lunch and I feel great I am just on 20 units of lantus in the morning and ten at bedtime. I walk as often as I can.

    @salburda those are excellent blood sugar numbers. You are doing a great job and your A1C must show it.

    My moment was when I stepped onto the scale and weighed 205 lbs. This time was different because I was down to taking only one medication. This medication improved my mood so I was able to get up most mornings and actually feel motivated to get healthy. I cut down on eating the first three months.. Once the weight started coming off it kept me motivated and I started exercising. After 9 months I reached a plateau and stopped exercising for two weeks. Then went back at it again

    My a-ha was reading the factors for heightened risk of dying from COVID: Older, obese, and sedentary. Well, I can’t do anything about turning 50 next year, but I can lose weight and get off my butt.

    When was your 'AH-HA' moment that made you decide, 'ahhhm okay it's time to do something about this weight?'

    Lol, when my Grandmother grabbed me by the love handle and asked, "what's this?"

    I said, "Grandma, it's skin!"

    She said, "That's some thick skin..."

    And there you have it...
