    Not diabetic, here as the doc said I was on the brink. I'm forever grateful to him. As all of you know, the diagnosis is a huge life changer and you understand why I'd rather avoid it.

    Starting weight 108kg (17st) now 81kg (12st 11lb), a loss of a little over 4 stone since May. Another three stone to go, seems fairly easy on LCHF. Ketosis rules!

    I have lost just under 3 stone in 6 months. In this time my hba1c has gone from 104 to 62. I know this is still too high but I'm still losing weight and I'm currently doing the x-pert diabetes course

    8lbs in a month will have to do for now! Still thrilled with this regime.

    I lost 15 kg. I never imagined I can do it but it really worked through the help of proper exercise and healthy lifestyle as well. My diet is low carbs and I did eliminate soda or junkfoods.

    3 stone+ weight loss now. Weight at diagnosis - probably around 14 stone (not good for a 5 foot 3 lady!). Weight this morning - 10 stone 11 pounds. I'd like to get another 2 stone off - but considering I am now getting into my size 14 jeans (which I haven't fitted into for about 10 years), I'm quite chuffed. Nice having a smaller sized wardrobe (not to mention sending my old clothes to the charity shop!). I'm a dedicated low carber - and I seem to have started quite a few other folks in the office onto low carbing too.

    I have lost about 11 Kg in the last year, from 87.5 Kg down to around 76.5 Kg. Low Carb High Fat diet plus Intermittent Fasting has worked for me, reducing weight and lowering blood sugar levels. :)

    Started low carb just over 3 weeks ago. I weighed 99.9kg. Last Saturday I weighed in at 94.8kg. I'm pleased with my umpteenth good start but hoping this time I can sustain it. Last year I lost 13kg and put half back on so I'm moving towards my best weight loss mark again. Ho hum.
    But low carb is working out to be the best for consistent and stable lower BG levels

    Hi, since the new year, I have lost 1 stone and 3 pounds, steadily losing a pound a week using the 5:2 approach, I have found it fairly easy to do, it's a part of my life now, I need to lose another stone and half to get to 10 stone, then I will be happy with my weight, I'm never going to be super skinny (and don't want to be!) just 2 and half stone lighter with lower BG levels.:)

    And the latest update to this - 9 stone 12 (and now fitting into size 12-14 clothes!). My ideal weight is around 8 stone 3 (whether I'll get there - I don't know). One thing I have found has helped in addition to low carbing is Banaba leaf - since I have been using this (which helps with BS levels) I have been dropping about a pound a week. Nice seeing the scales drop - unfortunately the fat around the midriff is clinging on for dear life! My battle continues!

    Ive lost another 1.6kgs on my scales off to dieticians for monthly weigh-in but have swollen tummy, again. Fingers cross her scales show my efforts. Maybe get more orilstat if ive lost enough to continue. Metformin and orilstat seems to be my lower carb compliment to weight loss.
    Ive waited decades for weight loss like this.

    Editted to add. Now 123.60kgs from 140kg at xmas. 16.4kgs lost since xmas. :) :) :)
