Just before Christmas, I was diagnosed with diabetes. I knew that it was a self-inflicted wound. My diet had included too many sweet things over the years.
I am now on a mission to lose the weight I put on and to get myself back to health. It requires rethinking everything you eat but it is doable. As you can see, I was up to 228+ just after Christmas but am now down to 225.2lbs /102kg.
I am confident that I can reverse this diagnosis by looking after myself better.
Dealing with the reality of my diet is a lot like dealing with the reality of YouTube. If you keep doing the right things it adds up and surprises you. My first goal was the increase my steps from less than 3,000 per day to 5,000 per day. I managed to do that for 2 weeks (and walk 27 miles/43km in the process)! I have now upped my goal to 5,500 per day average.

Weight down? I put back all the weight I lost last year and then some. I am now working on losing it all again and getting back to health.
Distance walked: 27 miles/ 43 km since diagnosis
Favourite new meal: Whole wheat wrap, 1 marble cheese slice, 1 rasher of bacon. Make 3 at a time and have them ready for a quick breakfast on the go.
