SO I had a check up at my Drs today and she is THRILLED!!!

Actually she said that if they had a star patient award I would get it.... Sadly there was no such award so I couldn't show off to my kids!! HAHA:D

In fact she said that if I keep up the good numbers on the meter that in 1 month we can attempt to start cutting back on medication...

OMG a doctor who loves my low carb diet AND wants to keep me as med free as possible....I think I might have hit the jackpot here...

Also..... I've officially lost 21kgs( 44pounds)!!!!! How exciting.... Believe me I still have another 50kgs to lose but I'm on the way....
I cleared out my cupboard today as this low cab thing is a perm fixture in my life and NOT just a diet... My doctor made it very clear to me...that even if I get to come off all meds AND lose weight and my BGs behave....I will always have diabetes....I may always have insulin resistance....

I know that and I'm ok with that....
I'm so excited about the future.... I'm 36 years old and my body is getting stronger and healthier each day....

And if I really look after myself now, when I'm an old codger like Shanny (that is a joke!!!!) I'll be very healthy then too :)

I am at a point in my life now that I am comfortable living with my Diabetes. I know that my bgs are in a normal range. I know this is due to the Metformin and my very low carb diet. This is not a diet but a Way of Eating for Life. It is a keeper. Congrats on your progress so far.

Congrats tiggletaggle! My doc is very similar to yours although he chooses simply to ignore my low carb diet. He loves my newest A1C numbers, my weight loss and my heart health since my heart attack. It's so rare to get a doc that actually pays attention to what you are doing and praises you for it. Here's to continued great health!
