I know I am still really new to this site and this disease, and I know I don't know everything, but ignorant poeple make me mad!!
Last night one of my husbands friends told me that if I would just lose weight I'd be fine (I am kinda big, I weight 245). He told my husband I'm just lazy!! I was so upset that I spent part of last night crying.
Yes it has been proven that weight loss can help with type 2, but it doesn't always clear up the problem. I have diabetes very severly in my family and I also had gestational diabetes, so I was pretty screwed from the get go.
I have been so proud of myself. I have lost nearly 40 pounds in the last month. The doctor said it't pretty normal for a person to lose weight when first diagnosed, but since being out of the hospital a week ago, I've dropped 12 more pounds.
I know I shouldn't let things like that bother me, but sometimes it's hard. Especially when it is supposed to be a friend. I know he just doesn't quite understand, but wow that hurt.
