After some discussion with friends here at DC I have made the first steps to getting back on track with my health. I thought that by using insulin I would be doing myself a favor. I really don't think that I was. I have gained exactly 31 lbs since May. I am only 5feet6 inches tall. I feel like poo most days and have so much pain in my back, shoulders, hips and legs that I can barely move. I suspect that it is a combination of the weight gain and all the carbs I have been eating trying to deal with the insulin. My doc said "low fat". However, I know that low fat, at least for me, isn't any good. I feel hungry all the time and constantly feel like I need to eat. So, I'm getting back on track with what I know works for me. I've started back with my low carb eating plan. I already feel a tad bit better this morning. Still having quite a bit of pain but that will get better with time. I do feel a bit clearer headed too. It's funny I knew that carbs weren't good for me, but never truly GOT it until I experienced the bad stuff for myself. With the help of God and the encouragement I know I will get here I will beat this demon. I desperately to get off of the insulin and start feeling like myself again. Thanks for all the help friends!!
