following: Dulcea's own diet
performance: losing 0.5 lb a week
I was diagnosed with pre-diabetes September 2008. At the time I weighed 160 lbs. As soon as I started to control my carb portions the weight started to drop. By April of 2009 I was down to 130 lbs- all with just changes to my diet.
I felt 100% better. I had a BMI of 23%. I thought I finally had my diet and health under control.
Then in November 2009 I started feeling either jittery or fatigued. I developed all sorts of other symptoms from night sweats, to nausea. I had three different doctors making all sorts of test. After $3k in medical bills, finally the endocrinologist determined I was insulin resistant and put me on medication.
Been on Metformin for about 2 months now. My blood sugar is much better but there are still some symptoms that don't match so they put me on a low hormone dosage of birth control. I start that next week.
I joined Fatsecret becuase the doc said I need to loose about 12 lbs more around my belly, and because I know that will be tough to do alone, especially now that I'm on the birth control.
I hope that being in touch with other people with similar goals it will give me the will power to shed those last few pounds and then keep them off.
