Okay, I am fed up with being fat around the middle and pretty normal everywhere else. I have looked through old medical records and I seem to keep losing and gaining the same 10 pounds! I am eating more complex carbs, recently gave up all sweeteners in my coffee and other foods. I gave up bread and crackers for WASA crackers.
I want to "get 'er done" and start eating 1 meal per day, drinking more water, stop eating precooked meat that I just steam or thaw (more work for me) and get away from quinoa mixes and frozen veggies. It's just such a huge struggle to gain/lose, back & forth. I'm thinking of talking to my doctor about lowering my insulin because of things I've read on that. I mean, 45 u is a lot, but it keeps my BG normal, or nearly normal. But when I started taking it I just started gaining weight again. I never have the problem of going too low — only too high. I don't want to starve and if I could lose weight quickly, it would be worth the struggle if I could be pretty sure it would be over with within 4 or 5 months (I have 50 lbs to lose). I know a lot of you have lost weight within a year or less. Any advice?
