Does metformin made a diabetic lost weight?

I had been dianosed with type 2 diabetes a couple of years ago and when I started taking metformin three times a day I lost weight.  I was 128 lbs but within a year I went down to 106 and now 102 lbs.

I would like to know if it was metformin that made me lost weight.  I don't want to lost weight.
Hope to hear from you.

Thanks.

I don't know much about this but here is some info I found on what your asking.

You'll notice the first sentence;
"Metformin, sold under the trade name Glucophage, is used to treat diabetes, but several recent papers show that it also helps non-diabetics to lose weight by reducing hunger (1)."
