I've been saying for years that my metabolic issues were preventing me from losing weight. At the same time, internally, I was beating myself up for a lot of treats I ate, even when my diet was otherwise quite healthy.

Over the last two weeks, I've changed very little about my diet. I've cut out some of my sugar, but continued eating the occasional treat. I've been eating salads most day for lunch, but then I've been doing that pretty consistently since February.

I haven't actually checked a scale yet, but I tried on a dress I tried on at the beginning of June. Three weeks ago, I needed a 1X. Today, the X fit perfectly.

Now, it's not a fitted style and there's a lot of elastic, so I certainly haven't lost an entire dress size in most respects; but I've been noticing my summer wardrobe fitting loosely, in a couple of cases too loosely to be really comfortable. Nevertheless, it appears that with very slight diet changes and the metformin, I've lost a couple of inches of upper-belly/ribcage fat in the last couple of weeks.

I have not starved myself. I have not dieted strenuously. I've eaten much the way I was doing before. I haven't exercised hardly at all (too hot and I don't have my pool membership yet.) Yet the weight is coming off now that my insulin resistance is being medicated.

I'm finally going to replace my old scale and start using it on an infrequent basis.
