I get to get off Insulin!!
I have been doing insulin shots since July 2008. I should have gone on it before then but I was very resistant to it. I bargained with my doctor and pleaded “Please Please Please let me try to lose weight on my own!” and it did not happen. By the time I actually got on insulin, I was sick almost daily. When I started out I had to do 100cc shots twice a day. I continued with that dosage for quite awhile but then I started getting lows too often and my doctor told me to slowly decrease the insulin amount. As of right now, I am doing a 50cc shot in the morning only (20cc – R 30cc N)
I recently contacted my doctor and asked her if I could get off the insulin and she agreed! It is going to take some time to wean myself off of it but this is such good news! I am thrilled beyond words! Since starting on this WL journey, I have been able to stop one of my blood pressure meds and now the insulin. With my continued WL I am hoping to get off all my meds AND the damn CPAP machine. This is a monumental step in that direction! Woot! Woot!
