Omgosh! I'm type 1.5 as well! And I feel you, it's tough for me to lose weight. Are you on an insulin pump?

No, trying to avoid it... I am pretty much in control of it... I take insulin when I eat all my meals and before I go to bed I take insulin... Also I am on metformin.

I take one of those protean shakes before I work out and it seems to keep me straight. Scared the hell out of me when I would drop so low at the gym.

I'm also on metformin. But I'm on an insulin pump since I've been diabetic for 14 years. Even though I eat healthy 93% of the time I wasn't losing weight. Until I started counting my calories and drinking 8 glasses of water daily and work out regularly. I've lost 4 lbs just in my first week. I check my bs before I work out to avoid lows while working out.

I am getting married in October and since becoming a diabetic and quitting smoking I have gained some weight... I need to get on track... I am starting to feel like its a lost cause.

What's your daily diet like?

It varies... I basically eat healthy. It's just if I eat "too healthy" I get major lows.
