I lost 30 lbs. a few months after I was diagnosed (since Nov 2008) I was on Metformin until I lost most of the weight. I'm doing fine with diet and exercise ever since then. However, lately I have lost somewhere around 6-7 lbs, without trying and that is since some time in Sept. I know that isn't a whole lot, but I am very concerned. My appetite is good, I am strict, but not overly strict with my diet and I do exercise 30 minutes 5 times per week. So I decided to do a test, until my doc appt. comes up on the 14th. I have not exercised but maybe two or three times in the last 2 1/2 weeks. My BS is fine so far. I am only doing this temporarily to see if I keep losing. So far I have not lost anymore. I am also trying hard to put more calories into my diet, without adding many more carbs but this is hard! It is hard to find things to eat to increase calories and see if I can maintain my weight, without adding more carbs…so what are good snack ideas and meals that I can try? most everything I see that is more calories also has much more fat and I sure don't want to do that, even temporarily. I have thought of calling Diabetes Education , where I took my classes, on Monday when they are open to see if they too can help me with this. I have alwys had breakfast, a snack hours later, lunch, a snack mid afternoon and dinner and I have not changed my eating habits. My weight stabilized after I lost all that I needed, and it stayed that way for at least 7 months until this started happening. I am going to be sure the doctor runs tests and I know to ask for a thyroid test. I sure don't need to lose any more weight!!
