Insulin & weight loss - any success stories?
Tuesday, May 12, 2020
Help! I'm so frustrated right now.
I've had to go back on long term insulin (for type 2 diabetes) and it has been so hard to lose weight while on it. For the past 1.5 months, I've been exercising each day, watching what I eat, drinking a lot of water, and I keep teetering back and forth between 5 lbs. I feel great overall, and know that my stamina is improving but when it comes to the weight/inches lost, I feel like this is a never ending battle that I am never going to win. I admit, I'm naughty and I have stopped taking it a few times, so I could lose weight, but my numbers get too high so I need to avoid this, although it's sooo tempting. Gah!
PLEASE tell me that some of you have had success stories while on insulin. I need to hear this so my impatience and frustration can take it down a notch. I'm sure I'm overlooking a detail so if you have any suggestions I'd appreciate that too.
Thanks for listening to my ramblings :)
