"Hey! I've been going to the gym for a year now and have made some gains but they are nowhere as close to my desired goal. I weighed 8 stone when I began and I now weigh 11. I do find I put on weight and muscle a lot slower than most guys but I…"

An open forum to discuss nutrition, routines and how to work with type 1 to fulfill your potential. Exercise routines and how to dose with insulin both with pump and MDI to avoid acute and latent-onset hypoglycaemia. Picture is me after a cut.

Hey Iyaz, welcome to the club :D In reply to your query, I don't want to sound like everyone else but it does get better, I promise. And yeah, it's been a year for me but I'm still getting a hang of this. I do worry about the future, to be completely honest with you. But why worry when I really can't change anything except eat right and take care of myself. Do you want to know how I coped? I had this major rant on TuD about 6 months ago and that made me feel heaps better :D Check it out, I'm sure you're going through the same.
And for now, just do what we all do here, no worries, just living one day at a time :)
Feel free to message me any time you wanna talk.
