In early 2011 I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. Note that I had a rapid weight loss. It is amazing how disciplined I can be when necessary. However, there does seem to be a plateau at about the 230 lbs. range that I mentally cannot get beyond. I hit this area, and then flounder and pretty quickly regain most of the weight. Look like I’ve managed to reduce by about 20 lbs. during this time.
