It's been 21 months since I joined this site and a bit has changed. I continued doing the "yo-yo" with my weight, hitting a high of 290 lbs. and a size 26Shock
Before things turned around for me, I found a new doctor who sent me to diabetic classes where I learned the how & why of nutrition for type II diabetes and put the information to good useArrow
Now 90 lbs. lighter with a normal 6.0 A1C level; I'm off heart and blood pressure medications. I will remain on Metformin due to insulin resistance. I feel so much better with the excess weight off, I'm very motivated to finish the job. The only problem is taking this much weight off at my age, gravity is not my friend and toning is proving to be a problem. However since my Grandson asked, "Can you run now?", I'm sure my Grandkids will be happy to helpLaughing

Wine
It could be a simple case of water retention (in the short term). Alcohol is a dehydrator (which seems counter-intuitive). It will make your body hold onto water so that your liver and kidneys have a ...
