    Had my first HbA 1C today since being diagnosed last November. Down from 8 to 6 & lost exactly 2stone 3lbs. Dn said that was very very good. I'm well pleased with the weight loss. Didn't think I'd ever be able to cut the carbs but I have & it's worked :happy:.
    I don't count carbs but by all you great people on here with fantastic advice I've really cut down loads. I still eat sweets crisps & chocolate at times but it just goes to show it is possible. Thanks everyone for all the tips. I thought I'd never in a million years understand or get the hang of this diabetes lark, but I was wrong & I'm delighted. Feel like the cats that got the cream right now :cat: :cat: :p xxx
