Welcome to the forum. Type 2 diabetes is special in that it can be affected to a great degree by your lifestyle. A HEALTHY lifestyle does a lot to bring you back into balance. 500mg of metformin 2x a day is really a "baby" or beginning dose of metformin so as you can see, the changes you've made in your lifestyle have made a huge impact on this disease! Keep up the good work because as you said, its NOT a diet, its for life!
Ya know, when you go to the park every night with the family you CAN have ice cream!! just get ice cream for hubby or the kidlet and have a couple of spoonfuls and call it a night! Thats better than nothing and not enough to really hurt you or retard your weight loss! I go to coldstone with friends, grab a spoon and have a taste of everyone elses! When all is said and done, I've had a bit of sugar, but not so much that it really throws my BS into a tailspin, and its SO MUCH BETTER than standing there watching everyone else have ice creamgasms!
