SparkTeam Insulin Resistance/Low GI Diet

Wednesday, July 13, 2011

Hi, Everyone! My name is Kathy, and I'm new to this team. I'm 52, live in Tampa, FL, and am the heaviest I've ever weighed at 217.8. My wt has gone up and down all my adult life, but back in late 2003 I started reacting to my diet - extreme mood swings, 'the shakes', extreme sleepiness, and if I didn't realize what was happening and eat or drink something, I'd even start having slurred speech - scary! I noticed I immediately felt better if I ate or drank something with calories, so I began eliminating sweets, then gradually I cut everything until I was eating only complex carbs and meat, and then I finally stopped reacting to sugar. By that time about 8-10 weeks had passed, and I had lost 40 lbs! Well, of course, as a lifelong 'always on a diet', once I stopped reacting to sugar, I began having cravings again - I 'found' all those lbs I had lost, and more! About this time last year, I weighed what I do now but managed to lose 25lbs, but my husband (No, I haven't gotten divorced quite yet) had a caregiver move in with us - she does all the shopping and cooking, and she likes to see us eat well; again, I put it all back on. I have a really bad sweet tooth, and I can't fight my own cravings plus her - help???

    Maybe you can teach the caregiver that you can eat well and healthy at the same time. Don't give up, you will beat this.

    Don't give up on yourself. You are the only one that can make it happen for you. You have the power to succeed or fail.

You have choosen to succeed.
