    Congratulations Rachox, Please may I ask you a few questions: Did you lose your weight just by low carb diet? I've to lose 25kg (put on over the last 12 months - long story :( ) and i'm waiting for my next HbA1c results on Monday. Hopefully it wont be too high. How do you get yours checked so frequently? My Gp will only check mine once per year!

    The only decision Ive made that could be seen as approaching a resolution, is to delay going back to the gym until February when the annual new years resolution fuelled crush of eager new gym bunnies will have dissapeared and things will be back to normal

    Thank you! I did just use a low carb diet! I dont go overboard on the fat though, I’d say I do low carb moderate fat. I don’t count calories at all. I don’t feel hungry and the food is enjoyable. I don’t ask for the HbA1c tests, my GP just says each time when he wants the next one, guess I’m lucky. Good luck with your results x

    I'm going to try not to let it influence my mood anymore when my blood sugar doesn't exactly do what I want it to. Last hba1c (half a year ago) was fine, time in range on the libre is near perfect, next hba1c should be even better, so so what when it isn't in range all the time.

    Mine is to cut my high fat yoghurt with low fat so I get a 50/50 mixture. I don't like low fat (though I used to eat nothing but low fat a few years ago). I've looked at the label and just 100g hf - less than a serving and a lot less than my usual serving - has 6.6 g sat fat. That's as much sat fat as I am allowed in a whole day!

    Well we are over a week into the new year I wonder how the resolutions made have stood up so far. As I resolved not to make a new year resolution I have so far managed to keep to that.
