120 Day Reversal
As I sat in my hospital bed on November 6, 2017 wondering how was I going to deal with finding out that I was a new Type 2 Diabetic, thinking about all that my father had gone through as a Type 2 Diabetic, and how this condition had affected numerous people within my family, I never thought that 120 days later I would be declaring that I officially (and medically) REVERSED my Type 2 Diabetes.
That’s right, I have completely reversed my Type 2 Diabetes. I took my AIC from 10.3 down to a 5.4, my blood sugar levels from 522 to 98 and my blood pressure from 199/112 to 130/80. Although I started out with 3 diabetes and one high blood pressure prescription, with the threat of one more for cholesterol, I am now DRUG FREE with no clinical need to take any medications.
How, How, How?
When I share with people this miraculous and extraordinary transformation, they immediately as me “How?”
As I reflect back on the last 120 days I have realized that there is one single principle that has been the overarching theme to my change.. my OBSESSION!
When I found out that I was a Diabetic, I became obsessed with figuring out how to take care of myself. My initial intent was not to reverse my Diabetes, but simply to keep it under control using the medications provided. I had reserved myself to the thought that I would need to take medication for the rest of my life. After all, that is the pattern that I had observed with everyone else I knew who had Diabetes.
Not until I learned that Diabetes could be reversed, did the idea that I could come off all my medications and control my diabetes on my own ever enter my mind, but once it did, I have to admit this: I was obsessed with it.
I didn’t know anyone who had ever reversed their Diabetes and I WANTED TO BE THE FIRST.
I began to think about what life would be like without having to worry about medication and how I would feel based on what I ate. Without the need to measure my blood sugar one, two, or three times a day, needles, shots… I became OBSESSED about being in the best shape of my life.
Using the topics and products discussed in the Eat Like a Diabetic site, I have formulated a LIFESTYLE of taking care of my Diabetes. You must become OBSESSED with a LIFESTYLE change that will lead to you getting healthier and healthier. A by-product of this obsession is the fact that I lost 70 pounds and in combination with my changed eating habits, I was able to accomplish this total reversal.
Be obsessed about your Diabetes, be obsessed with doing what it takes to reverse your condition, be obsessed about being in the best health of your life. I haven’t been this weight in over 20 years and I don’t plan on stopping here. There is much more to come… I am OBSESSED!
Do you know anyone else that has reversed their Diabetes? Please share their story.
