Fattening up

I have lost a lot of weight, initally it was put down to the diabetes, change of diet because of that, but i have lost too much weight..a good thing one would think, but its getting worrying, the doctors have had me on a high calorie diet for the last 4 months...but still not putting on weight.

In 18 months i have gone from a UK size 16 to a size 8, and still dropping.  I shouldnt be, it should have settled by now, if anything i was told that the insulin would have me put on weight, so its a concern.

Im going into the doctors tomorrow for extensive tests, i would be lying if i said i wasnt worried, i am, i dont feel right, im looking gaunt, i dont suit the weight loss.

I wanted to take a break from blogging, whilst this was going on, especially as im meant to be having a positive April, but im not feeling too positive at the moment, im trying to be but yeah its the worry of the unknown.

  2. Tori,
    that would worry me too, even though i could stand to lose some weight. I hope your tests will help figure out what is going on with you, and I would be worried too, but at the same time, try not to worry too much...if you can...
    thinking of you.

  3. A lot of people joke about losing weight (I know I do), but losing that much that fast is concerning. I hope these test can shed some light on the issue and I hope it doesn't cause you more distress.

    We are thinking of you and wishing you well. Take time to care for yourself, but remember we are here if you need us.
