my secret was being totally pissed off. I was so angry. so mad. and I was in the middle of the worse year of my life, my husband of 23 years had left me, I had lost my job, sold the house, gone on disability, totally homeless had to move 900 miles away from my adult kids to live with a friend. and then ended up in er with diabetes. that is the short version. I was mad. it seemed the only thing I really could control was, food. So I did. As soon as I went low carb I started loosing weight. then I started an hour a day on the treadmill, then after low carbing about a month, I didn’t even want to eat. so i was eating not enough. my hair started falling out and I started having twitching in my legs. So then I stepped up eating, but still less then 50 carbs a day, added a multi-vitamin. kept treadmilling…and here i am now. my endo is impressed, he asked me if I have OCD. and I do, I thinked that was in my favour for once.
