Isn't it funny how, for some of us, such a small amount makes such a big difference? I can eat 3000-4000 calories a day, and as long as I keep the carbs to a minimum, I don't gain an ounce. But if I up the carbs even a little bit, the weight starts to drift back up again. A few months ago I tried to up my intake to 30-35g a day and within three weeks I had put on 6 pounds. Not to mention I had heartburn for the first time in over a year.

I'd so much rather skip the bread and rice, and stay thin and feel good.

It is strange, I am still in the "feeling a bit punk" stage as my body shifts over. But, the scales are already whispering sweet nothings and my glucometer is happy.

I am also trying to lose few pounds and found green tea really effective. Green tea thrice a day plus some exercise is surely helping me to lose weight.

I was trying to lose weight, well I am big lass but I am happy as I am. So far all diet are no go due to my muscle problems. So what does my doctor do, send me for a scan to see how much fat I have around my organs. Guess what, I am just a well insulated house with open plan layout, yes no fat around my organs. So back to the drawing board and he thinks if I eat more, so my body store less that might be the answer.

So far, I still havent manage to eat the breakfast he wanted , it way more then I can stomach and the same with lunch and dinner.

Feels so weird being big and told to eat more.

My previous stance was, "I'd rather be fat and happy, than flat and snappy!"

My motto is I rather be loved then anything else and I am.

I am with you. As long as my glucometer and doctor are happy with me, then so am I. Although I have lost so much weight, he has asked me if I am now anorexic. No, I am just not as active as I used to be, therefor I have a smaller appetite now. Every so often I try to take a walk outside the building. But there is a big difference between walking inside on a floor that has give and a cement sidewalk. Most of the time I can't even make it from the door to the sidewalk. I also find when I get full of ambition, I start getting chest pains. Something I can do without. Right now I am 5-10 pounds more than I want to be. According to my doctor, I am fine where I am.
