I apologize if this topic has already been covered, but I need some advice.
I just realized that I might have an eating disorder. I think this has been going on for 10-15 years, at least.
I was diagnosed with diabetes 24 years ago, when I was 7. I use Novolog by pump, my last A1C was 6.7, generally my diabetes is well controlled but I do use a lot of insulin, which I think is because of insulin resistance.
I eat once a day, usually dinner. Most of the time I have a salad with grilled chicken but I also sometimes eat fish or even half a sandwich, and sometimes during the day if I get really hungry I will have a mini rice cake or a piece of turkey. My daily carb intake is under 30.
I make sure to stay hydrated, and take calcium and Vitamin D but I always feel exhausted.
However, I’m fat. Seriously. I am 5’6 and weigh 188 pounds. I am active with my two kids and I do another 45 minutes of cardio five times a week.
Is this normal? Sometimes my husband comes home and tells me what he had for breakfast and lunch, and I can hardly believe someone can eat that much. I’m afraid that if I change what I’m doing, I will get even fatter. I know I sound like I’ve completely lost my mind. Thank you.
