Living with Diabetes

Hello everyone. This is Matt and I am a diabetic. I was diagnosed with type II diabetes about 15 years ago. It was hard for me to hear but I didn’t realize how life changing it was for me. It was one of those situations that if I were to lose some weight it could go away. I was in a constant battle of YOYO dieting. I am sure you all know what that is. I would try a diet and perhaps go to the gym for a couple of weeks. I would lose a couple of pounds then after those weeks I would go back to my old ways. I ended up gaining twice as much weight as I lost. My daily regiment is taking medication to lower my glucose levels. I never understood the whole blood sugar thing until recently. I never actually monitored my blood sugar. So how could I fix something I know nothing about. Six months ago, I started to focus on monitoring my diabetes. The doctor’s say that a normal glucose level is under 100 and a normal A1C is under 6. My glucose averages 350(crazy HIGH). My A1C was a 10.9. It was totally uncontrolled with taking medication. To me this was the norm. I am used to living at a “high octane” of elevated glucose levels. Then one day it hit me. I should be in the hospital right now. How am I walking around normally? My glucose is approaching 400. I weigh 400!!! Yikes! The truth of the matter is that I am a ticking time bomb. At any moment I can leave this world. What am I going to do about it? What can I do about it?

        When I started the MOXIFIT program 15 weeks ago I did not have any expectations. I only had one goal which was to lose 100lbs. It was more of a dream or a wish. I never actually thought I could achieve this. This program has helped me change my eating habits. Within the first week of MOXIFIT I see my glucose levels start to lower. As it is dropping from 300 to 250 to 160, I have never seen my levels lower the way they have. Along with dropping 5-lbs in the first week my glucose has reached an all time low for me at 90!!!!!(AMAZING). I consulted my doctor to figure out what the next steps should be. The only concern from my doctor at this point was my glucose dropping too low. She gave me news I never thought that I would ever here. STOP YOUR MEDS!!!!! I couldn’t believe it. I have been off my Diabetic medication for 14 weeks now. I am happy to report that 15 weeks in MOXIFIT and medication free my glucose level is consistently under 100 with a new A1C of 7.5. This alone is what I am most proud of not to mention the 70-lbs I have already lost.

        Do you have diabetes? Do you struggle with weight loss? If you are reading this at this moment you are alive. You are breathing. You have a choice. TO BE THE CHANGE. It is never too late to start your journey. Please let me know how your journey is going. I will update you on mine. Remember “Where there’s a WILL there’s a WAY”.
