How To Reverse A Diabetes Diagnosis By Losing Weight

Here's something shocking to think about: 40 percent of Americans are obese — and that number is the highest it's ever been. And here's another jaw-dropping statistic: 29 million Americans have type 2 diabetes. If you fall into either of these categories, the good news is there are simple steps you can take to make lasting changes. For example, you only need to lose 5 percent of your body weight to seriously start reducing your risk for type 2 diabetes. And you only need to lose 1 gram of fat from your pancreas (where your insulin lives) to reverse the symptoms of diabetes, according to one small study. The connection between a small amount of weight loss with a large health benefit is not new.

    So I know we get a lot of success stories of people doing crazy things like losing 40 pounds in 3 months but I was wondering what the average persons weekly weight loss is ? I've been lifting all of my adult life just about and started the diet around 264, the lowest I've seen the scale is 252. So I've lost 12 pounds since easter roughly. That's a lil more than 9 weeks on the diet so I'm at about a solid pound per week weight loss. Ideally 220 is the goal with some abs, and at this rate I'll need 32 weeks to get there. So of I keep doing what I'm doing I'll be there in 7 and half months.

    After the initial large drop .5 - 1 Lbs a week
    The only thing I would suggest is do not take any other's numbers to heart, everyone's body/diet/goals are different
    Too many times we have seen people try to compare what others have posted on there and getting bent out of shape over it and not looking at the bigger picture.
