Hi, my name is Savannah and I have lost 100 pounds which took me three years to lose. In the last few years, I seem to have regained 70 back. Slowly, I am trying to find my way back to a healthy lifestyle again. No matter where I am in my journey, I live to run. These are some races I am planning in 2017. April - Hot Chocolate 5K/15K May - Madeline Island Half Marathon July - Chicago Rock and Roll - 5K/10K Also, in 2017 I am getting married in October.

    There will be moments when you feel that your challenges are just too much, but if you look around, you will see others who want to help you, shoulder your burden and give you respite and comfort so you can come back with the courage, faith, and stamina you need. Judy O’Brien

    Unfortunately, it wasn't till 2010 w/my diabetes diagnosis that I started to lose weight. I WILL say I lost 15 lbs. with my thyroid diagnosis, but then that was it.

    However, if you cut the carbs out (the simple carbs) and concentrate on protein and good fats, it'll happen.

    Yes, the A1C is a good test to have. You are wise to ask for that.

    Good luck w/the insurance. It's so complicated right now!

    Anyhow, that's a good idea to just try the diet for right now. Then when your insurance kicks in be sure to get your blood sugar and thyroid levels checked. (Just as a guideline, anything over 99 for blood sugar is high. Your TSH thyroid stimulating hormone parameters should be from 0.3 - 3.0 mg, but I personally feel best when it's 1.5 or below -- pretty typical for women).

    HUGS and good luck.
