    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.

    'AH-HA' moment: There really wasn't one. I've tried for 30 years to lose weight without success.

    Motivation: Turning 65 and realizing there was little chance of seeing my 70's unless I could find out why I was hungry all the time and increase my stamina. A simple google search led to info on insulin resistance and carb cravings that I am confident will allow me to watch my 8 grandkids grow up.

    impact of a correct mindset: All the difference in the world! Gaining information on nutrition and knowing that I just can't eat the Standard American Diet for the rest of my life go hand in hand. Loosing weight has been so easy-peasy that I am shocked! Bought jeans yesterday, size 36. A year ago my size 48's were getting tight. Nothing reinforces a mindset like seeing positive results from the changes made.
