(I didn't know how to write the subject to make sense. )
Back story: I quit smoking 2 years ago and gained weight. Last year in October I went into my second round of denial and everything I ate was justified with "I have fast insulin".
40 pounds overweight later I knew I had to get my life back on track.
After Christmas, I swore off sugar. *ALL* sugar. I began walking more regular and watching what I ate and how it effected my BS.
I have done well so far. Only 4 pieces of candy since then, due to crashes and needing something - not because "I have insulin."
I am seeing a weight doctor (with my doctor's blessing). I lost 4 pounds in a month before seeing the weight doctor and I went weeks without needing fast insulin at all. Even my dawn spikes were under control.
But the last 5 days, without any changes to what I'm doing, my morning spikes are over 200 again and I'm having to use fast insulin to get them down. Which defeats the whole purpose of not wanting to use it so I can lose weight.
I have not changed my diet. I have not changed my activity level, if anything, I've increased it. Yet now after several weeks of good BS numbers and not needing the fast insulin, my BS is spiking in the mornings again. And the daily nightmare roller coaster of ups and downs goes on.
How in the heck am I supposed to lose weight if I'm having to use fast insulin that does nothing but shove more fat into my cells?
Could it be my body revolting after this long and it will eventually get the message its not getting junk anymore?
Anyone else go through this?
I'm not giving up!! Just frustrated.
