I am Graham (Oldtimeram), aged 63 and 5ft 9ins.
Went for a check up last week (Tues 26/10/21) and was told my HBA1c was up in the 90s. I was told I need to diet and they will review again in January 2022. I don’t want to go on insulin.
My weight was 14st last week and commenced the diet last Wed ( so not a week yet). I weighed myself today and I was 13st 5lbs so I am quite pleased, but very early days.
I am still trying to work out diets that are suitable but with time I’ll get a decent amount of food choices all being well. My target is 11st 7lbs, so quite a way to go yet.
I do quite a bit of walking so hopefully I’ll get my 10,000 steps most days. I also do some muscle resistance training on my upper body to try and keep my muscles from sagging too much.
I’ll keep you up to date with my progress
