I might finally have found the key...

Monday, April 17, 2017

I didn't want to cheer to soon, but I've been almost binge free and losing weight for a month now. Before it never worked out so well, but I am realizing now what the difference is: I am on insulin...

Before I would have cravings for sugars and carbs like crazy, eat some, my bloodsugar would soar up and then crash down, and then I had cravings again. i know normally eating a low carb diet ought to have stopped those cravings but not in my state without insulin. Now that I'm using insulin, my sugars are much more even, and the cravings do not feel like they are from hell anymore. They're just at a more manageable level.

I have no idea what this means or what it is, but I'm thinking I've had struggles with diabetes much longer than it seems because I was working so hard with low carb to keep a balance. Now low carb almost comes naturally. And I have done the 'everything in moderation' before too (before the insulin too though) and that didn't work at all. I'm not going to mess with something that's working now though and will keep at the keto diet, that works the best for me.

So far, in a month, about 10 pounds, tomorrow I'll know more, but that is a very good amount of weightloss for me. After having been stuck at the same weight despite working so hard, it is wonderful. I feel so much more even keeled. I always thought I should avoid injecting insulin like the plague but it turned out not to be true.
