Hello all,

Started a journey last september @ 421 " Was also my diagnosis of T2" @ 11.8 A1C
Since then the last 2 are 5.4 and now 5.2
Changed eating habits and started walking
I started walking 4-5 miles a night. I have seemed to of hit plateau. It has been maintaining, but not moving.
Now at 359 , Still a long way to go.... Goal of 200
But now I bought a bike.
I will post a before picture as soon as I get it done. Hopefully withing the next couple days.

My real hope is this is something I will enjoy and will push be closer to my goal.
I have a friend that is an avid biker and he is giving me a lot of tips.

Encouragement is everything. And surrounding yourself with like minded people is key.
BTW : Bike is a Trek fx2 with disc's - Hope is survives me.

Sorry the pictures are so huge...


245 lbs March 1st 2018. We had 8 kids in 9 years that contributed to my weight gain as you can imagine. : )


210 lbs now after walking and biking since March 1st 2018. Now laid up with a broken leg. I'll be able to walk with the cast July 9th.

Lost 55 so far

I bought a trek hybrid last August weighing in at 276. This morning I weighed 221 on 4/27/19. I ride 20 miles 4 times a week and 2 days I do a 6 mile single track through the woods. The single track is a killer on the 20 year old Wal-Mart bike. Looking at real mtb now and hope to buy one soon.

In 2016 we changed our way of eating to low card high fat. I would call it ketoish. In May of last year I bought a used Gary Fisher Mako from a friend when I hit 300. I now ride a DS 8.5



355 in 2015



280 in 2019
