Hi can you tell me how you maintain such a beautiful figure while managing type one I used to be really thin (I'm 5"8 and 228 but I used to be 150 before I had my 4 year old daughter and I go to the gym like 3 to 5 times a week and my weight just maintains at 228 and that is not my happy weight can you send me a message telling me what you eat because it looks like you body build but I've noticed that all those high protein bodybuilder diets don't work well with my bloodsugars cause I need carbs to balance my bloodsugars
