Hi there! I am also insulin resistant. Every pound I lose I really rejoice because it is like someone else losing 3 pounds. In fact, just this morning I lost a pound, and I was so excited.
My blood test last year indicated that I was in the prediabetic range. So, after trying every way of eating and working out - no success. I had been on a low carb diet and had success with it (twice even), but the weight would always creep back on after about a year.
So, I knew carbs were the problem - but I didn't realize that I needed to cut way down on them forever. Now, I know better. And the Atkins way of eating is the only way I can eat and not count calories so much and the fat that I eat satisfies my brain.
