It’s Been a While

It has been a while since I last did my blog, not because of any particular reason except that I don’t feel I have a lot to report. I am not due back at the doctors for my 6 monthly diabetes check up for at least another month (they tend to be around your birthday and mid year), and sometimes it doesn’t feel like much is happening…

Until I look back, that is…

A few years ago, not that many.. maybe 5 or 6 I went to weight watchers (a wholly owned subsidiary of Heinz by the way… you learn something new every day!) and weighed in at 20.5 stone. I dieted and lost 2 stone, which I thought was a bit of a miracle and then lost another stone when I split up with my then boyfriend three years ago now…

Then I found out I was diabetic and since starting a low carbohydrate  lifestyle in October last year have lost almost another 2 stone (it will be two stone in 2 lbs time).

And it’s in looking back that I realise just how far I have come, and the weight is still moving slowly but in the right direction. In the past 7 months I have lost 26 lbs… that’s a nice average of 3.5 lbs each and every month.

And I feel great.
