Are you sure? I think that it's really important for people with diabetes to test their BG. There's a whole bunch of changes people w/ T1 go through (honeymoon) and T2 seems, at least from people's reports here, to change a lot too. The only way to see the change, or even that you're not changing, is to test and test some more. Weight loss can be hard too and can be very slow, keep at it.
