I haven't told many people about my diabetes but yesterday I thought I would talk to a co-worker who is diabetic. I told her I'm on Met then about my weight loss and lower A1c. Her response was, "Yeah, I started that way too. I lost weight and was on the same dosage as you. Taking Metformin will make you lose weight but you will end up taking insulin shots at some point." I'm not dumb and I know that is a very real possibility. My goal since dx has been to get off the meds. I have felt so good about what I have accomplished only to hear it most likely is not my best effort that is responsible for my progress but it's the Met. Maybe I don't want to be off Met because I fear weight gain will happen and I will go back to where I started. I had all I could do to not sit and cry all day. All day, night and this morning, her words are haunting me. What a switch this post is from my last one when I was feeling so good and inspired.
