IT sounds like you're doing better! I guess your issues are complicated cos' you're diabetic as well. How's your mood been - have you been depressed at all?

I have no idea about pulse and temp anymore... I stopped taking mine.
A guy on the forum just posted a thread about a diet he created that he believes restores metabolism. I'm going to try it when I get back home, cos' my metabolism seems to have slowed down over the last few weeks (I gained weight for no reason). Might be worth looking into for you too?
I understand the loss of confidence from weight gain - but you look fab Keep the chin up.

And I second Ci's suggestion that you start posting in the fitness thread

"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
