Food, diet and weight management / Re: Weight loss
« Last post by Paulines7 on Today at 10:17:21 AM »
I want to lose some more weight too.  I am 4 lbs lighter since taking up aquafit and swimming in April.  I also feel fitter and the pain I had in my shoulder has now gone. 

I lost weight when we had a weight loss thread in the past.  I found it an incentive and was not so tempted by things I shouldn't eat.

The Waitrose Livlife bread is only 3.5 carbs a slice though the slices are small.  I now freeze it in 2 slice portions as it tends to go mouldy after a few days and at £1.50 for a small loaf, it is expensive to throw away.

Hi there lisa.........it can be so discouraging for any of us to see our health care team because it does feel as though we are being judged on as little as 1 single number ( HbA1c ) when in fact that number is made up of 6 months or a year of our real lives...................so do try and remember that you are doing this for you because you own your Diabetes .......and your real friends and supporters are the diabetic community who all want you to do well. !!!!!

Sorry I didn’t mean to sound sour.  I am so glad you have it.  I just hope for the day we can all have one.  Even if only sporadically when basal needs fine tuning.
Patti..............i didn't think there was ANY sourness........ it is the usual Postcode lottery in the UK.........I too hope for the day we can all have one...........it is that long ago I cant remember if Blood test meters and strips had a rocky introduction.... but i remember pens did not just universally appear for everyone overnight back in the day

Still have ketones of +++ but it’s been over 24 hrs since last taking the medication so should be on the way out now. Dr asked to see me again tomorrow to make sure all is okay.
