It Worked

sindyb9sindyb9 Member Posts: 1,248 Member Member Posts: 1,248 Member
No medications for my diabetes. I had 3 months to loose some weight to see if I could control my diabetes without medication. I did it. my sugar levels dropped and even though it is not were it should be I have 4 more months to see if dropping more weight will lower it. I am so excited because I know that I will be loosing more weight and I already feel 10 times better than I did 3 months ago. I lost 25lbs in 3 months and hope I will loose at least 30 more by the time I see the doctor again. Just hope my siblings see that eating healthy and exercise really can help.

Thank you everyone for all your support I could not have done this with out you!

:drinker: :drinker: Thanks MFP Friends:bigsmile:

    Thank you everyone. The news just makes me want to work harder. I was so excited I walked home, 2 cities about 4 miles, never thought I could but stayed on the bus route just incase. :laugh: :laugh: This whole week I have at least walked 3 miles daily today 3.74 miles. I want to loose at least another 25lbs (the healthy way) by the time I see my doctor again in 4 months. We shall see. :drinker:

    woohoo.gifwoohoo.gifwoohoo.gifwoohoo.gifwoohoo.gifwoohoo.gif

    That is certainly WOOHOOOOOOO worthy!

    Congratulations on such an incredbile achievement!

    I wish I had done the same when I recieved "the news" years ago but at least now I have got my diabetes under control (for the first time since being diagnosed) and my meds are being reduced. One pill cut out completely and the other one cut in 1/2 now! woohoonaner2gy.gif

    I'm hoping soon to be meds free!

    Congrats again and keep at it now--don't slip back. You can knock out diabetes but the danger is always there just waiting for unhealthy habits to slip back in, so keep at it!

    Thank you. I am loosing all of the weight and if it keeps me off medication thats great, but I feel better have more energy It just makes me more determined. I am on other meds for high cholestoral that did not lower but working on that too. Here is to being healthy :drinker:

    Check by Googling but there's some foods that you can eat to help lower cholesterol that might help you in that area.

    My cholesterol has always been fantastic--at least I've got one good thing going for me! :tongue:
