I have a very dear friend who was extremely overweight. She went on the hormone diet (daily injections) in May. I was traveling and we met in Sedona in May before her diet. I saw her when we got home about Christmas and she has now lost 125 lbs-down to size 6. Without any exercise either. Diabetics can't be on that diet.
I have working very hard for 3 weeks and have only lost 2 lbs. It's very discouraging. I hope my friend can keep off the weight, but all I can think is I would love to do it quickly not at a snails pace. I am happy for her-she probably has given herself many more years. We are both 61, but I am diabetic taking insulin. Now I'm reading it's even more difficult to lose weight while on insulin-lucky me. Trying to remember it's one day at a time and not compare my results with my friends BUT IT'S HARD NOT TO.
