    Losing Pregnancy Weight & Reversing Type II Diabetes

    Shop Now
    So I'm Jasmine and I guess this is my journal about losing pregnacy weight and controlling t2 diabetes.

    Height: 5'3"
    Starting weight: 140lbs
    BMI: 24.8

    Goal Weight: 120lbs

    Dream Weight 110lbs

    Intro:

    I had a baby boy 4 months ago. I gained 40lbs during pregnancy & I had gestational diabetes.

    After having my baby I ate.....junk. I had a blood test 3 months later and discovered I had t2 diabetes.

    Before getting pregnant I was a vegetarian for 3 years. I think that's what lead me to high blood sugar coz I was getting a v low fat, next to no protein, high carb diet.

    I have been Primal for 1 month. I decided to start this journal because I haven't lost any weight & I feel really crappy overall. I really need advice and support.

    So, thanks for reading....

    Hi. Just checking in, and will read your journal.

    So far I just am on a pill, but I need to get the diabetes under control. I sure don't want to do insulin. Good luck to you!
    Start Date 9.24.12
    Starting weight 285ish ( scale is acting funny so I don't trust it, but 285 is close )
    CW - 271 pounds
    First Goal - 255 by 2013
    Main Goal - To be healthy for my family... I have an awesome family.
    Other Goal - to get off some medications
    Final goal - to get to about 180 pounds by 2014
    NEW GOAL - When I can start a new journal called "Your dad is not so fat!"

    Your Dad is So Fat

    Day 1

    B: Bacon, omelet, c.cheese

    No Lunch

    D: Almond Tilapia, avocado, greens, red wine

    S: 2 pieces dark choc, cheese, tea with cream

    1 hr brisk walk

    I didn't have lunch coz I was out and about today & didn't have time.

    I didn't really want to eat any snacks, but I couldn't stop thinking about food! All I wanted was the dark choc! I think I should eat lunch tomorrow and try not to eat the snacks. I had mustard with my fish (not too primal I don't think) Here's a pic of brekkie & dinner:

    @PP yeh insulin was a pain to inject. I actually haven't been to the dr coz I don't want to be on insulin.

    I've actually been eating pretty primal for a month & my symptoms have already decreased: less peeing, less thirst, less skin dryness (still pretty tired though)

    Glad that my weight has come down BUT I've lost and gained the same 2 lbs for a month so won't be ecstatic until down to 137lbs or my jeans fit better.
