Nice one Dad! I didn't get as far as Type 2 Diabetes but I was on two different blood pressure medications, statins and a steroid inhaler for late onset asthma. Dropped 60lbs since last March and stopped all meds. The inhaler was the last to go at the beginning of January. As it has been seven weeks, I think I'm done with it. Mind you, at present I still keep the steroid and "emergency" inhalers handy just in case.
I have hit a weight plateau, so as I am doing some strength training, claiming that I am now turning fat to muscle and that's what's stopping me losing more weight at present. At 5' 11" 180 - 183 lbs is the top end of "normal" for non athletes and I see that I still have some blubber to get rid of. However, I am now much more aware of what I am shovelling past my lips and accept my transgressions (wine, chocolate, potatoes & pistachios) as treats. I would like to be 165 -170 lbs (or 34-36" waist) for my 63rd birthday in May.
Why use a sledge hammer to crack a nut when a steam roller is even more effective, and, is fun to drive.
