    Hi all

    I’m now in my 6th week of the 8 week plan and as I am due to go on holiday to my native Italy I had a Hbac1 test to see where I’m at. Last test in June it was 59 and the result today was 47.35 (very exact I thought). At this point I have lost 10.6kg (23.4 lbs), I have to say I was a little disappointed because when I was first diagnosed in 2016 with a score of 54 within the next 3 months it was down to 46 without the calorie counting and trying to stick to the 800 calories a day. Do you think I am expecting too much too soon?

    Hi Andycol54 Well Done, that’s a great loss and dro pin numbers.
    I think you’re being too harsh on yourself. ~There always seems to be a plateau and I’m on one at the moment too.
    It does enourage me to ‘try a bit harder’ so I’ll be very strict, bar my cups of tea, although they get less milk! ๐Ÿ˜€
    It sounds like me you lost an initial weight loss from following the principals but it’s eased up a bit now.
    I’m not diabetic so I cannot advise on those numbers. But it sounds good to me. The fact that it’s still dropping ought to still be a really good thing?
    I need my cholesterol to drop and that’s going to take time. I’ve lost inches around my waist but several more to go yet!
    I do see this as a life changing way of eating, not ‘just a diet’. That way after I’ve got to where I want to be (and I’ve decided ‘by christmas’) to give myself a lot of ‘slow weight loss’ time – then I can go on a balancing diet… by slowing increasing until it evens out.
    Although in the winter I do less activities… (Mind I have a foot that is recovering from reconstruction so I’ve little chance of any activity at the moment anyway ! ๐Ÿ˜€ )
    And we all lose weight differently. Some around here seem to be able to lose a stone a month but that hasn’t been my experience after the first month. But I’m still new to it all and still learning a lot! ๐Ÿ˜€
