Like "You know, I am in the sae boat. I take meds and boy have I put on the weight. I was advised that perhaps later I will have to take the insulin instead of meds, I thought o boy now I can loose some weight. Wrong insulin does put on weight, I have finally adjusted to the fact that I am going to gain weight and my goal is to loose weight and not to gain. So far I have not gained but stay the same, I eat less and walk more or do housework or anything that will keep my body moving. Do not stress, just take in stride and find ways to not gain, it can be done and you will do it. Good luck to you."
