Well here I go again!,,I hate this never ending cycle of things! Just when I accomplish one thing,still with no good results,the docs throw another thing in my other wise chaotic life! I am about ready to throw the towel in! Now the docs have decided that my metabolism is on the blink!,,Largely due to my own fault!,,Go figure,,everything is at my own fault!..Seems I can't get anything under control because I have just been eating one meal a day. Despite my morning swims and evening walks,, they think I need to jump start my metabolism back by eating 5-6 sm. meals aday...essentially grazing!. My thoughts were,,,I live in Texas where cows graze all day,,,I dont see many skinny cows!,,,The answer,,thats not the way it works,,,well duh!,,what does?,,so far nothing!
I have been on pancreatic enzymes since last Sept-or Oct. (can't remember cause everything runs together & I'm old,,lol) after blood work,and scopes on both ends for a dx of Autoimmune(or Autonomic?) Diabetic Neuropathy of the Gastrointestional Tract,,
after 5 months of the most horrible & embarrasing gastro problems( bloating & diahrreah). I take 2 with each meal and one with snacks. Praise the Lord,,they work! through all of this I have conditioned myself down to eating just one meal a day..(conditioned as in to avoid embarrasing moments) Ok maybe not the smartest thing to do,,but i'm vain.
To make a long story short,,,over the last 3 -31/2 years,,with all the problems I have had,,and increase in Insulin,,things have packed on a good 80 pounds. Despite being carb concious( thanks Gerri!), and swimming & walking & one meal a day! When I was dx'd 6-7 yrs ago,,was less than 20 pounds over weight and very active. I can't seem to get the BS down! It makes no difference wether I eat or dont eat,,they are always high! Well I have made a small accomplishment in the last 3 months,,,15 1/2 pounds gone! but still high BS..oh yeah,, they have gone < 300 now at least 5 of the 8 testings a day but are greater than 250 despite the Levemir twice a day and R 3 times a day!
I have just had new dx's of RA & Fibro after high results on blood work,,,was wondering ,,can one have it all?,,i think i'm working on it! I am tired,,fed up,,and sick of this! but I try to trudge on! I hate the 7 shots aday!,the 8 testings!,,I hate eating!,,now 5-6 times a day and I hate swallowing pills!,,,less meals= less enzymes to add to the multitude of all the rest of the pills I take!,,
Thanks for letting me ramble,,have never been good at explaing things,,So what I need to know is,,,,anyone have a good meal plan for 5-6 sm. meals a day so I can at least try this out! I need so much help,,since I can;t seem to do the right thing!,,thanks everyone!
