New here, been using the app since April

Hello all.  I just found the forums section while playing around with the app lol. Let's see, in March I was diagnosed as pre diabetic with an A1C of 6.3, I was 259lbs at 6'4" Tall. My doctor told me to get my crap together over the next few months or she would label me as a diabetic in my records and put me on metformin.  I agreed I would get my crap together.  70 days later I was 45lbs lighter and my A1C had dropped to 5.3 which is pretty normal. I fumbled my way through the low carb diet in the beginning, got lucky and hit ketosis in 3 days. As I write this I am 55lbs lighter and have dropped 4 sizes in pants and within 5lbs of my desired weight goal. I feel 100% better now and I really don't miss the carbs, I have more energy and I'm not tired all the time like I used to be.  The biggest motivator for me other than health concerns was following Thomas Delauer on YouTube thanks to a recommendation from a friend to check him out. For me, his information and advice was spot on.  That's about it about me. I'm looking forward to reading through all of the other posts in here.
