The weight gain sucks, but you just have to remember that your body is healthier now and isn't destroying itself for energy! Eating a lower-carb diet and hitting the gym a few times a week has helped.

With my schedule that's hard to do! The only thing I can do is skip dinner and go to the gym and maybe do a****shake after for dinner.

I've really found that limiting carbs to 30-45 grams per meal (in addition to counting calories) has helped slow weight gain for me. Maybe find some simple exercises you can do at home?

Insulin has a fat producing hormone... So insulin users tend to carry more weight. Sorry to say, it's part of the D life. I've learned to live with the thought I will NEVER be the size I truly want :(

Halle Berry doesn't have Type1. That was a load of crap... Didn't you hear her try to say that she got rid if it? Yeah. Bogus to begin with :/ Sorry to burst your bubble.
