    Hi everyone,
    I thought I would share my news ...
    Diagnosed T2 3rd June with BS of 86 and Cholesterol of 6.8. I was devastated. Told to take Gliclazide but said I would do diet first so have just focused on diet, exercise, stress level reduction etc.
    I had to have more bloods done yesterday for Thyroid, Kidney function etc. I was cheeky and asked for the BS and Cholesterol to be checked too - even though I know it is a 'proper' reading after 12 weeks. They agreed.
    Got my results today:
    BS now 60 which I know is still too high but 6 weeks to go before my retest.
    Cholesterol 5.6.
    I am happy.
    BMI done from 26.5 to 24. Doing Low carb diet. Weight coming of nicely without much effort and without feeling hungry. Feeling better than ever - tummy shrinking and now getting fasting readings of 5.5 in the morning.
    I am feeling hopeful.

    Well done. Take a note of your body measurements. When your weight loss stalls, you may see that it is because your body is redistributing itself and will be encouraged to keep going.
