    In celebration mode today as just over a year since diagnosis I have hit the weight loss goal I set myself.

    On diagnosis I weighed 101.1kg for a BMI of 38.4.

    Today I am at 63.5 kg - BMI 24.1 so 37% of body weight lost for a BMI of 24.1

    More importantly my HbA1c is down to 34 (September) from 108.

    All down to advice on this forum, eating very low carb with intermittent fasting and a lot of walking!

    A great Christmas present to myself and very motivating to not stray too far over the festive period.
