Thanks for the link, Les. I have even better news. I should maybe say something about my last doctor visit in October. My regular doctor had not seen me since April. The doctor who took me off meds was filling in the week I saw her. When my regular doctor finally saw me he completely freaked. First off my hemoglobin A1c was without meds 4.5. Not only was it normal it was exceptional. The doctor throughout my physical kept saying "I am shocked". At one point he said, "I am sorry I keep repeating myself, but I am shocked". He then told me he never seen what I did happen before. He said he had seen a handful of young people in their 30s lose the weight and lower their blood sugar, but he had never seen someone my age do it. He said I no longer have diabetes. I now will only have to see him once a year for regular check ups. He even said I had an athletic heart. lol My heart rate was 56. My blood pressure was 110/60. It looks like I may be around this forum for a few weeks after all.

Other news, besides running my first 10K tomorrow. Next Wednesday I start a Half-marathon training course with my running club.
Update: Looks like I will not be running my first 10K tomorrow after all. I just got an email from the promoters of the event and because of the bad weather forecast tomorrow they are asking for those who plan to run the 10K slower than a 12/min mile pace to please run the 5k event instead. Because of my heel injury I am not confident I can the run 10K at a faster pace then 12/mile. Without the injury I am sure I could do it. This is a big disappointment, but I will take it in stride.
