I have decided that it is time to get this 60 lbs. off. I'm depressed and feel fat and ugly. That said--I have put together a diet plan with the help of my DE and an exercise plan with the help of my son. I am having trouble following it this week and probably most of next week because I am also doing basal testing for my doc. But, if I can eat the way I am supposed to for the meals that I CAN eat, maybe I'll do alright. The exercise thing is more difficult because I can't exercise when I can't eat or change basals temporarily. I know that I eat to reduce stress--which raises stress--which makes me eat...... You get the picture. I'm hoping that this will work for me in a more permanent way. I have used diabulimia before and that caused gastroparesis. Gastroparesis has had several times that it got bad enough that I lost 40 lbs. That's a hard way to go. But it is all back and then some. Any ideas?
