I have been Type 1 for 32 years. I have struggled with it on and off and seen many changes. Three years ago I got my first pump and why I waited I have no idea. Six years ago I developed Hashimoto's and that's when my life was flipped upside down. I didn't get control of it quick enough and I got very sick. I ended up gaining so much weight. Fast forward to now. Six weeks ago I started counting calories and joined the gym. I have been there almost six times a week. I have lost about 13lbs. I have read up on so much and my brain is like umm stop lol. My question is:- what have any of you done that has helped you lose more weight. Thank you and I hope I haven't rambled too much…

P.S. Happy Halloween!!

My best weight loos happens when I am not focusing on my weight but other things I am doing like counting my carbs very carefully, doing that extra bit of activity and just being more disciplined. I know when I am doing those things right, weight comes off.

WELCOME to DC!
Sorry to learn about the Hashimoto's I myself have hypothyroid.

You say you are counting calories. I found that to be rather connterproductive.

What I think is better to count is carbohydrates.

3 + yrs ago I started an experiment of eating a low carb (not no carb) and high protein meal plan. Over the course of 5 mo I lost 65 lbs, kept my BG (blood glucose) at "normal" (80 - 130 mg/dl) levels without the use of diabetes meds (I am a T 2 but was on twice daily NPH insulin injections)

I am still using that meal plan and will be willing to share it with you should you reqeust it

Praying for success in your weight loss, whatever what path you choose to follow.
