I am a diabetic that has struggled with obesity for several years. I tried everything to lose the weight and balance out my insulin levels. I went to Weight Watchers, Nutri-System, Jenny Craig, all the big names in weight loss. Nothing worked. I just couldn't seem to learn the portion control/calorie counting aspect of my diet. One day I was in the doctor's office and he told me that I had gained another 17 pounds since my last quarterly visit. I was up to 312 at that point, which put me at high risk for many ailments such as heart disease, heart attack, and stroke. Needless to say I was terribly vexxed. I had always kept my doctor in the loop about my diet, and I just didn't understand, with all of the diet programs I had been doing, why wasn't I losing the weight. So my doctor, we'll just call him DR. M, told me that he was going to do some of his own research into finding me a diet that would work for diabetics. I didn't think much of it at the time, having tried several other programs with no results. So one day Dr. M calls and says he may have found a program that could work for me. I thought, "Oh great, here we go...". Dr. M tells me I have to try this program called, "Balance for Life". After alot of consideration I decided to give it a try. When I spoke to the representative about the program I was amazed. It was based on the "ZONE DIET" which works well for diabetics like myself because it actually balances out insulin levels in the body. After I saw the menu I was surprised to find how delicious the meals sounded. They delivered the food to me fresh daily. I thought, "This is great", not only do I not have to count calories, but I don't have to cook. After tasting the food, I was hooked. To make a long story short, I've lost 93lbs to date, I feel great, and I have been winning my battle with diabeties. So it just goes to show, if you eat right, everything else will fall into place.

Since my last post about struggling with many issues my pdoc has started me on lithium and it makes me feel like shit. Granted I am only on my fourth dose but I am hoping that my body adjusts to it and I won't feel like shit all the time. Still feeling empty but not rapid cycling as much .
