Turns out I am losing more weight than I thought. And the eating program is obviously doing something, because I have to reduce my insulin dosage.

I'm not sure if that is bad or good but I wish you well with your plan.

I'm going to be resurrecting the scale from the garage in the next few days..I know I've gained some as I was weighed last week. Dr. suggested weighing once a week. We'll see how that goes..or the scale may end up in the Lake.

I'm doing much better mentally now. I hope it lasts! Thinking about you all and wishing you happiness. Sometimes, for me, it comes in the little things and moments.

A new month and going to get the scale out but not yet....kind of scared to and don't want the whole vicious cycle to start again with weighing and feeling like crap because of it. I think I need some positive self talk about how the scale doesn't dictate what or who or how I am..

Got the scale out of my car trunk. Trying to prepare myself mentally for what it's going to say. I want to accept my weight and not beat myself when it's more than what I think is acceptable. And I know it is more than what I feel I should weigh already because I was weighed at the doctor last week. It doesn't make me a bad person or any negative adjectives. I'll use it as a baseline for further weigh-ins because I need to watch it for my health's sake and only that reason. I am a good, worthwhile, pleasant person no matter what I weigh.

Well, I weighed myself and it's okay. It's only a number and does not define who or what I am.

Thank you. I'm being medically supervised and check in regularly. My doctor is pleased with my progress. I'm sticking to the program, and my insulin dosage has been cut in half. Insulin can make a person gain weight, or at least make it next to impossible to lose it, so the less I have to take, the better. If my blood sugars can be controlled without it, that would be the ideal.

I hear you on the scale. I was initially told to weigh myself every day. And only once a day! I might get obsessive enough to weigh myself several times throughout the day, and of course I'm going to be a little heavier as the day goes on, which is going to be discouraging. I was counseled that little fluctuations might be water weight or whatever, and not a true measure of whether I'm gaining or losing body weight.

I'm not even sure about weighing every day. I might be better off once a week, so I can see the loss, if any. Seeing the same number for several days in a row can make it feel like I'm not making any progress, which would make me want to give up.

Of course, I know if I give up, all of the progress I've made is undone.

So glad you are doing alright. I'm diabetic, too. I have the scale back indoors. I'm going to try once a week. For the reasons you said I find it discouraging to weigh more often. I may be going on something for the diabetes. I'll get an A1C this month most likely. I think I may be put on Metformin which I've heard has helped some to lose weight. Probably not the same thing you take.

I hope your night is a good one.

It's been awhile since I checked in on this thread. I kind of had some psychosis symptoms that were consuming my life for over a week. I wasn't eating properly or anything at all but it actually wasn't intentional. I was so out of it and far from reality I just never even remembered to eat.

I'm eating normally again now that I'm out of that episode for the most part. I have a lot of stress though now as a result of some problems with my college classes due to the episode so I'm trying to not eat a bunch of junk food to make myself feel better or escape temporarily

So sorry you were having such a hard time. I'm glad you are feeling better now. I've been wanting to binge but have no junk in my apt. Had some other stuff I didn't need tho last night. Getting back on track for the most part. Hang in there!
