    I feel the same. I wasn't terribly overweight when diagnosed but I have learned a lot and I am possibly fitter now than I have ever been, feel great and feel changes I have made via diet and exercise will pay more dividends in the future.

    My 11kg seem rather modest! But almost 25kg from my heaviest around 10 years ago.

    A total of 17.4 kilos have gone now. Just need to lose a little bit more, and then buy some new clothes.

    I lost 4 stones between 2009 and 2011 . but I looked far too skinny for an older lady , so increased the carbs marginally , now been at a fair consistent weight for four years using low carb and medium fat :) Would like to increase the fat but suffer from bad reflux so medium is tolerable with the help of omeprazole ;)

    Only just vit90. 12kg is better than none or putting weight on. :)

    What I'd do for another 4kg, though! It's really tough for me at the moment to get the last bit of weight off. 4kg would meet my current target.

    Don't be anxious to lose weight too quickly @vit90, sometimes it will lead to the release of catecholamines and free fatty acids into the bloodstream, and cause some hypertension and endothelial damage, which will take some time to repair.
    Well done on your achievements so far.

    12kg in 6 months is about a pound week, so not excessive.

    Hi all,
    I had an epiphany in January whilst speaking to my nurse at my surgery. She suggessted the low carb diet as my hba1c was up alot from last year (6.8 to 9.2!- I had a bad year). Something she said made sense and so I found this forum and after reading lots about LCHF, I started cutting the carbs.
    I am now on 30 to 50 carbs a day and in four months have lost 11kg/24lbs. Also have taken up swimming and cycling along with the daily dog walks. I feel better than I have in years. BG is in range and diabetes is in much better control.
    So I would like to thank all you helpful peeps out there for your knowledge and experiences. I wish I had looked up this site years ago.

    :):D

    Been on LCHF for a week! But been diabetic for 50 years. Apparently I probably know more than the doctors and consultants, so fed up of hearing this but getting no help to lose a few kilos. I decided to go it alone. Have lost 4lb in a week and blood sugars are brilliant, happy.

    Lost 10 pounds in 3 weeks ...happy with that but so wish that the damned donut belly would go ...that perfect little circle of fat that never seems to shrink. I don't need to lose anymore weight but that donut has to go somehow. Eating very low carb...below 50 carbs a day
