I need some support, understanding, listening and a little coddling. I don’t need to be chastised and told what I’ve done wrong. I’ve beaten myself up enough already.
Weighed in today and it wasn’t pretty. I feel as if I am fighting two battles, the “D” and then the weight.
I get one under control, and the other goes out the window. I can’t fight two at once. I am ready to give up on all of it. I gained, obviously, this week. AND my BG’s are in good shape. Now if next week, I concentrate on the sugars and not the weight, my weight will go up, again. We go through this medication switch every summer, and I wind up paying the price.
So here’s my plan, continue to take the Metformin, 2000 mg a day and amaryl, 20 mg a day. Continue to swim and bike. Continue to take my sugars 4 times a day. Continue to drink water like crazy. And continue to monitor my diet. I will take my WW’ers booklet and have them keep it, so I don’t drive myself nuts knowing that I have gained or lost…I can’t concentrate on two numbers and make it work. It causes stress in my life which doesn’t help me much. Does it sound feasible that getting the “D” under control will help the weight fall in behind as far as losing…or do I need to have yet another talk with the docs and get the meds under control?
Please be very gentle in your answers, because I have been crying about this all afternoon, and I can’t do it anymore.
