Hello! I was diagnosed with T1 just before my 21st birthday back in October 2012. Until diagnosis, I'd always been very slim - on the underweight/healthy BMI borderline. I actually went many months with undiagnosed diabetes, and I assumed I was just losing weight because I was stressed about uni - but by the time I was hospitalised with DKA and diagnosed, I weighed 6 stone something at 5'6. However! Since then, my weight has been a real issue. When I came out of hospital a week after diagnosis, I'd already gained a stone and a half back in water weight/from insulin, and now I think my weight is at the top end of the healthy BMI range. I'm not actually sure, because I have a history of eating issues, and I can't bring myself to check my weight. Aside from a six-month spell where I was massively underinjecting, and I managed to lose half a stone, I just cannot shift any weight! I'm taking insulin, an antidepressant (for anxiety) and I'm on hormonal contraception, which is pretty much the holy trinity for stubborn weight gain... but I don't want that to be an excuse anymore. I'm 28 now, and keen to make whatever changes I need to make to feel like myself again. What's my best option here to shift some of these extra pounds? I think I could comfortably lose a stone or two, but I just don't know where to start. I do IF (16:8 usually, but sometimes 18:6) and try to 'watch what I'm eating', but would it be worth giving LCHF a shot? I would be so so grateful if any other T1s could tell me what has worked for them! Also some reassurance that it's not just me would be hugely welcome. I don't know any other diabetics of any type in real life, so I'd love to hear from people who understand what it's like!
