Default Doing Great !!!

Joined this group 5 months ago and from the information & help I've gotten from this site has done me well.. My AC1 is down from 12.1 to a great 5.1, doctor said it's the lowest I've ever had since the 4 yrs been dealing with it. This site has made me understand the disease better than the doctor ever did and has taught me how to eat to control it, I'm only human and cheat a little BUT eating by my meter has taught me the limits !!!!! My weight has been 211 lbs for as long as I can remember and now it's been 195 to 200 lbs, not really trying to loose weight was happy at 211 but for those who want to you can easily loose it, still love to eat no doubt so again "Thank YOU" all for your great input to getting me on track..

Glad to hear that you're firmly in the 5% club, Les!

Now stay there!

Well done - you did the heavy lifting, all we gave you were the ideas!

Is that right? From 12 to 5 in 3 months? Now that's impressive
