Stay clean, keep lifting heavy, stay on top of your conditioning, and keep eating healthy. Most of all, give it time and enjoy the journey.

Your story is familiar to me. I was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes in October 2008. 14 months later, I had lost 150 pounds and was off all medication. In 2010 I screwed around in the gym some, wasted a bunch of money on supplements, and eventually found my way over here. 2012 has been a good year. I gained a little more weight back than I planned, but competed and placed in a Strongman contest and am getting set up for a PL meet in February. Keep the faith, stay out of anything that doesn't get you towards where you want to be, and smash heavy weights.

What does your eating generally look like each day?
