T2 here. I lose weight at a snail’s pace. In October I was on a plateau. The scale finally budged in Nov and I’m down 2#. I limit carbs to no more than 75 a day (five servings) and I do some sort of exercise daily of at least 30 minutes, even if it is only a brisk walk. I’m on Lantus insulin at bedtime and many people report on the difficulties of weight loss on Lantus. Thank goodness I have not experienced a gain! Since the Jan 1, 2017 I have lost over 25#.

I’m a T2! This was my face 80 lbs heavier. Weight loss is possible. For me, it means not focusing on the weight. I never dropped under 1800 calories if I was on a “diet” and I haven’t dieted in a long time—just focusing on plate composition and moving more. Strength training is a huge help to me for two reasons: the obvious “muscle burns more” but also it helps me feel strong, powerful and confident so I can make good choices for my body and goals the rest of the day. I do cardio for my lungs, my heart, my mood and my sleep. All these help with weight. I’m still making positive choices and still seeing my body continue to change.

I have lost 25 pounds in 6 month. Following an eating plan and working out-not bad for a fifty year old.

Lost 52lbs since last October, so it's been a little over a year. I'm T1. I still have 8lbs to go!

Trying to figure it out too! Aubrey what was your nutrition macro? I am trying to know if 40% carbs, 30% fats and 30% proteins is good?!

Oh man, that's more sciencey than I get with my food. I probably eat moderate to low carb, about 75-150g a day and a lot of protein, because I like things with protein, eggs, nuts, meat, etc. That's probably kind of high in fat too. When I hit a plateau I generally focus on overall calories to get passed it.
