Default My Life after 1 year of Diagnose (Type 2 D)

Hi Everyone, I know I am not active much in here but I would like to share my Story and Inspiration to you!

Yesterday, I visited my Dr and got my blood work result, HBA1c for the past 1 year was 6.1 Dec 2011

5.4 Feb 12
5.6 June 12
5.7 Oct 12

Fasting sugar was 4.6 in June and 4.2 mmol in oct.

My Dr is very happy with my results and hard work I have put in and he asked me to stops all my medications!!

I'm happy that I got my health under control and I've lost 36 Kgs since Sept 2011! I have attached one of my old photo since last year and recent photo.

Good job, way to go, JT !!!!! Congratulations!!

As one who was recently diagnosed with Type II, I draw a lot of inspiration from those of you who have been successful in getting your blood sugar under control. I hope a few months from now that I, too, will be posting those good numbers

JT so proud of you! Are you still smoke-free as well? You look really great! I bet the ladies are beating down your door

I still struggle, but things are better. I still cannot lose weight (I think because of the insulin) but I haven't gained, so I consider that successfully maintaining.

Keep up the good work! Hugs!

Hi Guys,

Its been a fruitful past 1 year..

I remember when I was diagnose with T2 at 11.2 hba1c, I didnt know what to do.. I didnt know what can I eat..

My Dr just ask me to eat less and exercise!

And I spent time reading and searching for information everyday from 4 to 8 hours a day...

And the more I sit in this PC, I cant stops eating (esp carbs) and smoking....

After I found this Forum... I read and everyone seems to be following the LCHF diet.. At first I was like EAT FATS? Skin from the chicken ?? Are you kidding me??


And Yes, I took a try for 2 weeks and My sugar was well maintain.. And when I first started walking, I couldnt walk for 5-8 mins climbing up a hill.

After that, I could able to walk over 30 mins for the first week and 1 hrs in the 2nd week. (with 2 to 3 times walking a day)

I even stops smoking... took up Champix for around 4 weeks and i quit the ciggs..

Later I found out that walking is too boring for me.... So I told myself, I need to find some exercise or sports which makes me run and sweat as winter is coming...

So I remember I used to play Badminton (for the school and other clubs) when I was young. Later I stop badminton is because I had a potts fractal in my ankle and that took me 5 years to heal with metal blades and screws inside

Took me 1 to 2 weeks and I found more then 8 places near my home which I can play badminton..

Took up the sports and I remember very well. first day coming back to play badminton after 21 years... I was playing with a 60 year old man... Lose to him 0- 15 and 1- 15 in 2 sets.. He was a EX World Masters Games Gold medallist.

Its was damn embarrassing and the old man was laughing at me and ask me to shed some fats and next time play with him again... I was there trying to grasp my breath as my asthma kicks in.


At that moment, I couldnt took the blow and almost kill myself!! Later I found a good coach, he taught me what to do and he ask me to train with him everyday just on Agility and physical.

For 2 weeks with his daily training for 2-3 hrs a day.. I lost 7 kgs...

I was quicker, was able to move in the badminton court better..

After 3 months of training, I went back and Challenge the old man and beat him 15-2 15-3. He was amazed of me losing so much weight and moving quicker in the court.


I am still training 2 to 3 times a week and play badminton 5 to 7 times a week as well as coaching the young kids who wants to learn to play badminton. (you can say most of the time I am in the court lol)



This Forum and Diet has help me to control and maintain a decent HBA1C But "sometimes" I need to add a bit of carbs in my diet as I am using and burning lots of energy everyday esp playing 3 to 4 hours of badminton a day...

I have quit sitting down on this computer and move my ass to the court everyday LOL..

Its been a pretty good experience year!!



Naynay: I have not been smoking, quit smoking for close to a yr now.. Life is Good!
