I haven't been around on here too much (I think because I hate to think about this 24/7 too much because it gets too depressing).
So I finally gained a bit of weight - I was 100 for quite a while and I am now 105! For the most part my BG is OK (well, I only can afford to test once in the morning but I almost always test at 80 and 90s even after eating a late carby din) but I have been eating more (I mean, why should I starve to death to have too tight control on BGs). I figure that it is a bit high than it is high and sometimes you have to wait for it go down. I hardly eat anything as it and I am tired of being hungry (that and I still have no job so I can hardly afford any food)).
I was reading that almost all diabetics have a problem with weight gain in the stomach area and having that flab there is because of insulin resistence. Are any of you Thins who are able to gain some weight gaining it mostly in the stomach?
I think a BIT of it did go to my butt (yeah!) but I don't like the fact that if I want to gain a bit of weight I have no control over where it goes and I have no choice but to accept that it will go on my tummy. Plus that is the worst place to have fat if you are diabetic. It seems we are doomed! I don't exercise too much I don't want to LOSE any more weight but than I can't gain it right!!! And I know the only way to lose fat on the stomach is to exercise - well, I can't do that and gain some weight!
Us thins are like on the starvation diet or something. :(
Even though I am over 2 years of diagnosed - it is still hard to believe I will have to think about this for the rest of my life. Can't they just invent something that helps us with this problem of the fat on the stomach?
