Default Insert Happy Dance Here

I am down 18 pounds in 28 days. Only 4 lbs away from leaving the "obese BMI" category and into the "overweight category".

Doctor has also backed off putting me on diabetes medication.

Yippee! and thanks Fitday.

Wow! That's great, egr683. You should be really proud of yourself for doing this. Congrats!

Thanks, I'm more disbelieving than I am proud.

I had the most amazing incentive. My doctor said "diabetes medication". Snapped everything into perspective. I've still got 54 lbs. to go, but going totally sugar free really helps.

That is awesome! Living medication free feels so much better than eating a donut ever could. Keep up the good/hard work!

Smile Update

My doctor just got back from her maternity leave. As of today, I am 142 lbs. (from 196 on February 15, 2013, and only 12 lbs away from a healthy range BMI), no longer have any signs of diabetes or pre-diabetes, and am no longer hypertensive.

In February I wore size 22 or 24 jeans. Now I wear a 10. My collar bones are visible. Yippeeee!!

Couldn't have done it without Fitday.
