Default I lost 27 lbs in 11 days!

Now, before you say "BS" Let me explain. I am a Navy vet, who enrolled in an intensive weight loss management program at the Minnesota VA medical center. For 11 days, we lived on site, were given only special low calories meals (around 225-250 calories per meal) We walked 5 miles+ per day and exercised. We also had psych, mindfulness and diet training classes to help "teach" us to eat smaller, healthier portions without feeling hungry.
I have type 2 diabetes. When the program started, I was injecting over 70 units of insulin a day. Now, (as prescribed by my physican) I am on a 700 a day calorie diet with low carbs. my insulin intake has been reduced to only 5 units PER DAY.
I no longer snack between meals, never feel hungry and each meal is a plate full.
I just thought I would share my success with you all!

^lmao.

Usually I would be cynical, BUT I know its a struggle to deal with all those issues at once and I congratulate you for taking the initiative and starting the diet.

You've made great progress, it seems. So keep it up!
