So I really need to lose weight, not really for health but more for me. I am really healthy despite being 60 pounds over weight and diabetic however I do not like the weight. I also retain fluids and have weird digestive issues, I wont go into details because I feel it may be TMI...lol...I want to be more active and eat lower carbs but I am afraid of lows. I think out of everything I go through with diabetes lows are the absolutely worst. I am not on the pump nor do I have a CGM, I prefer it that way. I am actually usually discrete when checking my BG and giving myself shots that most people do not even notice.
Back to the weight. If I exercise, like speed walking or jogging my legs get really sore then ankles swell up for days after. I would say its the shoes but I swell up everywhere all the time so I am not sure. If I walk in a slower pace it doesnt happen but I do not feel like I get anything accomplished. If I eat low carb which is the diet I actually like the most then I will def crash immediately after. My A1c is finally getting lower which I am thrilled about but I do not want to start taking less insulin at the risk of a higher A1c. I need some advice or tips on how I could approach it. Thanks :)
