Welcome Roxie! You are right, it is nice to be among our kind and share strategies and struggles. Sounds like you were a late comer to the T1 game as well (I was dx at age 27). I do think it's harder to lose weight as we get older, and trying to manually match insulin, a fat storing hormone, to our calorie inflows and outflows adds to that challenge. It is possible, just takes more work. Sounds like you are doing a great job with logging, and feel free to join the challenge!

Thanks for the warm welcome Carey, I'm glad to be here. I did see the challenge earlier, I'll give it another look this afternoon.
I log everything in a notebook right now cuz I bring it with me to appts.

Right now, I'm struggling with weight loss and don't know if it's something I'm doing or not doing that is causing a standstill, but I'm getting very discouraged at this point.

I'll be talking to my Dr. on Thursday to try and figure this out. Also made an appt with a nutritionist next month.

Thanks again, nice to meet you!

Welcome to the team Roxiegirl it is nice to have you and you are so right on the understanding part with type 1 and type 2. BTW I am Carey I lead this group I have been type 1 for over 16 yrs. I pump and use a CGM.
umm right now the big thing going on is our logging challenge created by one of the team members the goal is to log all your bg's and insulin doses and what not leading you to better bg control it seems when we are aware of all that is going in we can be my proactive in control. so join in everyone's doing it lol.

Hi, my name is Roxie and I've been Type 1 for 5 years. I'm always looking for groups to join, cuz it just isn't the same talking with people who are Type 2. There are some similarities, but only WE would understand exactly what it is we're talking about and going through.
Thank you for starting this team, I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you.
