I've been lurking for ages. I've decided to take the bull by the horns! I desperately need help to alter my eating habits! I've been diagnosed T1 for 17 years following surgery on my pancreas. Aside from 3 pregnancies (during which I was perfectly controlled) I have never looked after my insulin regimen. I've had weight issues in the past, that seriously affected my self esteem. I lost 3.5 stones with WW before surgery, to take me within the healthy range, but now I seem completely unable to control my over eating. I want to be healthy and slim and I've been much better at taking my insulin correctly, but I've put on 15 kgs in around 6 months! I'm finding it so hard to avoid slipping back to my old ways, skipping insulin to prevent weight gain. Can anyone offer any advice as to where to start? Obviously because of the way I've controlled my weight, I've felt completely lacking in energy for so long that my muscles are next to non existent and my stamina is also absent. I know that something has to change. Has anyone been in my situation and managed to get a grip of things? Any advice v v welcome. Please be kind despite the temptation to shake me! I should add that I'm not a youngster, and should know better at 47! I had some success with high fat, low carb but I found it v difficult to stick to whilst cooking for a family.
