Eta/ it diesnt bother me. Just figured it would be more of an attention grabber than "weight Loss before and after"


We don't eat out often. And i dont drink soda often. I work really
Hard to keep my weight in check

I eat salad a lot at home, so sometimes i wont order one since eating out once every month or two is one of the few times when I break from the amounts of fat I want to eat.

I guess it throws them off when I order a burger or some other some other fattening unhealthy food with a diet coke. Lol.

I'm a type one diabetic, I Carb count. So if I get a regular soda that uses up pretty much all my carbs, so I Always get a diet soda when we eat out.

So anyway, my real reason for this post is to show where I am at in my weight loss.

Started 9 months ago when dd was 1 month old. She is currently 10 months, I've lost 30 lbs since I've started.

Ive ren diabetic for two years now and Im doing pretty well.

My blood sugars have been great. My a1c last week was 7.
I've gotten much better at carb counting, and have been able to control my blood sugar levels much better,and I've been able to really. It back in how much insulin I have to use.

So I've been carb counting, and as long as I do it right i don't have to totally cut out the sweets, pastas and breads that I love, I just have to know my portions and eat correctly, so I love the fact that I can still eat those things.

I am a SAHM, but I have been walking every where. I just out dd in her stroller and out we go.

I work at home during the week, and do cardio, Pilates and a few other things. And I hit the gym on weekends.

I always make sure to keep a bottle of water on me so I can stay hydrated, and I keep my meter on me when I work out so that I can make sure my blood sugar isnt dropping.

It's actually been a lot easier than I thought it would.

So I'll put the pics in replies.
I started at 210 and am currently at 180

I started at 200.

I don't want to sound rude, but are you sure you always get dirty looks? There are people much than you, order a lot more food, and still order a diet drink. I've worked in fast food and never saw anyone give anyone dirty looks because of what they ordered.

But kudos for taking care of yourself and losing weight! :)

I am willing to bet those "dirty looks" are only tired and cranky people waiting in line for food. Don't be so sensitive.

LOL People always question that too and ask if I'm on a diet, because I'm slim. LOL I tell them no. And let them know that I am a diabetic.
