First Blog here.
Not sure how this blog is going to work. Vent area? Daily (or whenever i get around to it) recap?
Who the hell knows.
I guess i'll get the blah blah blahs out of the way for anyone that happens to locate and read this garbage.
im a white guy, 39 years old and this past January was diagnosed as having Type 2 Diabetes. Since that time, i've managed to lose 107 pounds. i am currently in the 160s, standing 6'2". Diet, exercise, portion control, and most importantly, cutting out almost all carbohydrates all together is what was able to get me to where i am right now.
That all being said, after 27ish years of being told that i could stand to lose some weight, iv enow been told just the opposite, i need to add about 20 lbs back on. Excuse me? are you fucking kidding me? lol thats my general reaction. ive been told that i am looking anorexic nowadays. i just dont see it. i see myself as the 300lb guy that i used to be.
Eating is a problem. as funny as it sounds to those that have known me for some time, i have no desire to eat and could literally go all day without eating. but i know that that is not good for me and can pretty much tell when my blood sugar gets too low. thats usually my reminder that i have to eat something.
about an hour ago, i stuffed down some food, because i have to, not because i was hungry.
