I got diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes 3 months ago and committed to making a major overhaul in my life.

I started at 269 and am now down to 245...24 lbs. I stopped eating bread, rice, tortilla's, chips, crackers. I have a protein smoothie in the morning and maybe some almonds ( 100 calories worth) a salad and a soup or veggie burger at lunch and a low carb meal at dinner. It feels a lot like starving. I'm back into size 36 pants from 40's, though and that's the important thing.

I still occasionally eat meat like chicken or fish but most days I'm vegetarian.

I started running on the treadmill and elliptical 3-4 days a week and joined Planet Fitness.

Reading ya'll successes really helped to motivate me to give it my all. The Diabetes and realization that I needed to stop fawkin around. Did a lot as well.

My goal is 220 and to start running 5k's, and to get off the Diabetes med's.

keep up the good work Jimbo, it will be worth it

Ran a 5k on 01/01/19 and Ran 2 - 5k's in December.

Committed to running at least one 5k a month for this year. Not looking forward to to the warmer months but its a goal.
