I'm going to brag on myself! I wS diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in October. I do not want to take medication. I promised my doctor I'd whip myself into shape. Last Friday I had my checkup. I've lost 42 pounds, lowered my blood pressure, and . . . I am no longer classified as diabetic. My A1C was well into normal range. :thumb: The doctor said I also look much better and act a lot happier.
