My name is Amy and I’m a new diabetic. Diagnosed Sept 18, type 2 on glyburide/met and insulin. At first my weight went down quickly to 142. Let me just say, I’ve been on a constant diet since age 13. I was 185, exercised my way down to about 160. Still struggling though. When I got sick, (I wasn’t aware of it though), my weight went to 142, I WAS SOOO HAPPY. When I found out why I lost so much weight I wasn’t happy anymore.
Now I hover around 150. With the new way I have to eat, I feel like I don’t know what I’m doing. Like I need to relearn it all and I feel lost. I never worried about carbs, ever. I would always look at the fat content .
So, does anybody have a good guideline to follow in general and also to lose weight or at least to maintain without gaining. I ordered the booklet Calorie King online and hope to recieve it in the mail any day now. That’s what I’ve done so far.
