just was reading your comment & now i remember that not only my cat but i also put on weight for winter! evolution is very slow in realizing that we don't need to store our fat for winter! thank you for the thought. wendyView Thread
doctor peeke thank you for getting back to me. i went to the doctor the other day after doing my usual testing (my a1c & all the usual tests) & found out i'm fine except i'm anemic. going to work on that by adding more iron-rich foods like spinach.
i know i go (went) too long without eating but the big question is why am i never hungry? my doctor doesn't know so, anyway, i'm following your thought & eating more often. don't want my body to go into it's saving mode anymore! . i usually go for a 30 minute walk every day or on the treadmill. i was thinking about switching from fast pace to normal pace so i'd be changing off every 5 minutes. i remember i read about someone doing this years ago. does this sound like a good plan? my doctor didn't really seem to think about it much. he's just glad i walk!View Thread
hi matty. what works for me is the opposite sex! yes i know you all laughing now! this is probably easier for a guy than a lady but think about it. many women like guys a bit on the chunky side but has a healthy living style & maintains it. for women i think we like to wear the clothes we want & stuff. as long as it's a healthy living style. i know i can't be around people that are eating what i used to eat & i don't be around them at meal times. also what i have found is with weight loss comes a new self esteem & a new self esteem gives you more confidence. & it snowballs from there. although you may have gathered that i am single i think that it works for any relationship single or not. and fill up your time with hobbies & activities. that way you won't have a chance to eat much!View Thread
hi and i'm glad you took time to ask me some questions.my thyroid checks out fine and i have an appointment with my doctor in two weeks.
i guess i wasn't on a "diet" so much as i just took what i ate before and cut it down to half the amount. it's not so hard to do as i am never hungry. really not at all. sometimes i find myself wondering when i last ate and realize it's been eight hours or more. i filled up any extra time doing things i enjoy and "time gets away from me." i wasn't doing any more exercise than i normally do. as for cutting carbs i always try to eat smarter carbs. i'm diabetic so i am used to managing that.
i hope to find an answer soon. it's sad to lose that much and then gain some back for unknown reasons! i will let you know what's up as soon as i do.View Thread
hi 4myk9z! i'm wendy5555. i have a really good ear to lend to you. if you want to talk to me just let me know. compared to your list mine is not so much-i have had diabetes for 17 years and am well aware of how sugars can just jump high on you. hope to hear from you!View Thread
