CHRIEILE....don't get discouraged that you havent' lost weight this year! If you have already had two surgeries....and are looking at a third soon...then your focus needs to be on just eating healthy enough to heal well and keep your T2Diabetes in control. Once your surgeries are done, then your body will be more ready to lose weight.

I will echo Kris' suggestion of seeing if you can work one on one with a Registered Dietician for both of your diagnosis....!

Be patient, recognize that your primary goal must be to heal, and be proud of yourself if you can just maintain your current weight without gaining more. (I had foot surgery...and I know its a struggle just to do that!) All the best,
patti

PS Since you are fairly new to Spark, have you had a chance to sign up for the 30 Day Diabetes Challenge? there are some great articles to read one at a time, and some good suggestions to make small improvements towards controlling your Diabetes. Any advice from your doctor will ALWAYS supercede this...but you might find some useful information, and some steps to take. Doing something positive for yourself can be empowering. go For It!!

Hi Heather - I feel your struggle.

Have you been referred to a Registered Dietitian? If not, I would strongly suggest that you make an appointment with your Dr and ask for a referral to a Registered Dietitian. I note that you also have Diabetes, and that in itself warrents the input of a Dietitian.

In the meantime I would strongly suggest that you weigh all of your food for increased accuracy and enter it all into the Nutrition Tracker. This makes it easier to tweak if and when necessary. When you go to your Dietitian Appt. print out your Nutrition Tracker reports and take with you. It can save tons of time, and also provides very accurate information rather than relying on memory and inaccurate guess-work.

Have you ever been checked for other disorders which could impact on your weight? Things like Hyporthyroidism and PCOS are just two that come to mind, and are very common.

Good luck,
Kris

Hello there,

My name is Heather, and I was diagnosed with subglottic stenosis a year ago. I was diagnosed with asthma my entire life, only to be told at the age of 35 that it wasn't asthma at all, it was a mass of scar tissue below my vocal cords, likely there since I was a newborn. I am looking at surgery number 3 in December, and I am really struggling. I still struggled over the last year to lose the weight. It didn't matter what I did, it refused to come off. I am debating whether to seriously look into the gastric bypass surgery for the simple fact that I have struggled for so long, I dont think the weight is ever going to come off, which means my T2 Diabetes will never get better either. I have tried everything!

I had a couple of questions.

Has anyone else here had this?
If so, how did you get the weight off finally?
