Not your normal fat girl
 
Hi.

My name is Misty and as the title states, I'm not your normal fat girl. Here's the thing. I'm fat. Yep, there I said it. Here's the other thing...I'm fat and I don't hate it. Yep, there I said that too. I'm a confident fat girl. I know it's a rarity that many people never understand, but I've always liked me, regardless of my size. I don't think I'm a skinny girl trapped in a fat girl body. I just think I'm Misty. I'm a college graduate with 3 degrees, a terrific job and a wife to man that's definitely a Misty fan :)

So, what am I doing on a board dedicated to low carb weight loss? Well, I'm living life with D. I've was diagnosed at a Type 2 diabetic in 2006 and after a very informing exam by a fantastic ophthalmologist, it seems that the symptoms started when I was 9 and in the third grade. BLAH

I've done low carb before. I've never done a true induction, but I'm smart enough to know that I can't follow any diabetic educator's advice and eat 180 carbs a day...just isn't going to happen.

I go through stages. I eat very, very well for months at a time and then I tire of it...rebel and eat whatever the crap I want to for weeks, before starting the cycle all over again.

Everyone suffers from it. My husband, my family, my staff and most importantly me.

I've given myself one more week to eat like crap and then it's an extended induction for me.

So, we'll see how this goes!

If you read any of this...thanks :)

He Misty!!! Just stopping by to say Hey!!!!!! :hiya:

MisticalMisty 08-14-2011 06:01 PM

Hi everyone!

I guess I've neglected my little space here. My blood sugar numbers have dropped dramatically, but even with 3 weeks of a clean induction, I lost no weight.

I'm sure it's the insulin and I'm very lucky that I've maintained my starting weight and haven't had to worry about a gain.

I've been sick the last couple of days and fell off the wagon. Back at it tomorrow!

Thanks for stopping by :)

Good luck Misty. I'm restarting today too.

ceecee08 08-15-2011 07:06 AM

Good going Misty. You can do it girl!!!! And WOOHOOO for the dropping in your blood sugar levels. Huge accomplishment within itself.

Thanks Seth! I appreciate it. I had completely forgotten it was here...but now I'll keep up with it!

slh72454 08-15-2011 06:40 PM

I know mine helps me out.

ceecee08 08-16-2011 07:06 AM

Morning Misty!!! Hope today is going great for you! Have a great day!

MisticalMisty 08-16-2011 02:23 PM

Thanks CeeCee. Today was crazy insane busy. I'm home 30 minutes late. At least I get to take a nap.

It's still running in the mid to high 200s...even when the day numbers are normal. Better today than yesterday, but still never where I need it to be.

ceecee08 08-16-2011 06:20 PM

Well at least its getting better... thats all that matters. It will probally take some time to see a huge change. Do you eat all LC??

Yes...I've been on induction, with a few cheats for about a month now. At least I've seen some good numbers this time. The last time, my numbers stayed so high.

I'll get there...eventually!

slh72454 08-17-2011 04:35 AM

That's the attitude to have Misty, this isn't a race. It's made a huge difference in my own journey. I have always placed pressure on getting to a weight by a certain time in the past and it never stuck. Yes I have monthly goals, but those are just to motivate me, if I don't them, I don't freak out.

ceecee08 08-17-2011 08:43 AM

I agree with Seth... No race take your time. You are doing great!

slh72454 08-18-2011 05:16 AM

It's definatly the key to being able to do this long term, not just a quick fix or a fad diet. I believe I'm in it for the long haul after being able to do it for a year which is longer than I've ever stuck with anything.

Hope you have a fantastic day Misty, show off that new haircut!

ceecee08 08-18-2011 07:07 AM

Haircut!!!! We need pics Misty!!!!

slh72454 08-19-2011 05:36 AM

She posted some on another thread, but I'm sure she will repost them here too.

Happy Friday Misty!

MisticalMisty 08-19-2011 07:06 PM

Here's the link to the other thread!

Happy Friday to you as well Seth. It's payday Friday for me. Woot Woot!

slh72454 08-19-2011 08:17 PM

Those are always the best Fridays Misty, lol.

MisticalMisty 08-20-2011 06:43 AM

I know right? lol I'm exhausted and we have a full weekend of packing ahead of us.

slh72454 08-20-2011 11:10 AM

I know you will feel so much better though once you're into that new home! I know how much you've been wanting to get it over with.

MisticalMisty 08-20-2011 12:25 PM

Most definitely! Even if it may take me 6 months to unpack! lol

slh72454 08-21-2011 06:15 AM

Why the rush? You'll be in that home for the long haul so take your time, that's what I would do.

I sadly still have a few boxes in my closet from when I moved here six years ago, lol.
