    8st 2lbs?!? That's amazing.

    Do you think that your weight loss was a result of bringing your BG into control, or that your BG fell into control during the weight loss? What kind of diet were you following prior to starting SW - and what does your diet consist of now?

    Excellent result Maxine! :)

    My wife did Slimming World a few years back, she said there was a chap on on the course who was type 2 and had lost almost 5 stone, my wife lost 3 stone but has since put a little back on! :wink:

    That's fantastic Maxine :) I understand the effort involved since I have got to a 3 stone loss now and you've given me hope to continue. Please let us know something about how you did it.
