So, quick background, I live in France with dh and two kids, I have no other family around, my mother is food OBESSED so I haven’t told her, my sister is diabetic type 2 but has decided to live with it no dieting, no medications etc and has accepted her fate as it was, so I guess I have put some pressure on myself. DH and kids are supportive (love them <3)
So I have been doing the 800 for 6 days whilst on my metformine 850 and have lost a grand total of 1kg, WTF? Have been swithering of being diagnosed or not from Dr for 2 years. Went to the Dr for her support she said that I could do the diet without the metformin, but she said that she thought I was kidding myself as its not just related to weight (the diabetes) as Im not obese or anything, so yes do it for 8 weeks if that is what you want but be prepared to come back in two weeks with raised BG levels, high blood pressure etc, and all the implications that that can install in your body, basically she’s telling me to go ahead and kill myself, its SO depressing, so that makes me panic and wonder if this is really what I need to do, but the thought of going back onto medication for the rest of my (shortened) life is a terrifying thought to me, what have I done wrong that I have only lost 1kg with 800 calories per day (even less some days) I try to walk 5km per day but long work days several times a week dont help? Could it be the simple fact that the metformin does not help you loose weight? Is that really all it is? Needing some more information and insight into what I need to do to resolve the whole weight loss problem.
Thanking you all, sorry for the long first post, and well done for getting to the end of this marathon.
