sure. I was injecting loads of it for my entire 130 lb loss!

the insulin you inject is worse for weight loss than the insulin produced by your pancreas. almost all "oral agents" besides Metformin force your pancreas to produce extra insulin, so the blood levels are the same.

some people need injectible insulin because they don't produce enough, some because their insulin resistance is high.

are you taking Metformin too? probably should be.

don't worry about the insulin, you can do fine with it. the whole type II/insulin resistance makes it harder for you, but injecting insulin per se is not a real issue.
Often I don't come back to read threads where I've posted. If you want me to see something, please send me a private message. Thanks!
