UGH!

I really HATE not being able to lose weight!!! I have been "stuck" at 300 for a few years and even though I can "lose" some weight, usually no more than 15 pounds....it comes right back a couple months later.

I thought I was doing good with eating keto food, but AGAIN.......after losing 15 pounds eating keto food, it came right back a couple months later!!!!

Considering how bad restaurant coffee is, it should always be free.

LOL. Reminds me of some of my friends: "Oh, you can eat this; it doesn't have sugar...it has honey."

Yup.

Even people who know diabetics who drink orange juice or chomp on raisins to treat hypos seem to think fruit does not have sugar. smh

A lady at a meeting responded to my mentioning that I don't eat sugar because I'm diabetic, said:

"You can have some sugar." I asked her how she knew this and she said: "My husband is diabetic and he eats some sugar."

She then revealed he is on insulin. Well, I guess he's chasing his rise in BG with the insulin. Not something I can do. But I only said that taking insulin would make a difference, and left it at that.

Not to be too unkind, but I've found people like that don't have a great capacity for understanding, so a simple response is best.

etherea, VeeJay and rsfletcher like this.

Yeah.........dealt with brainless people like that before. I don't even respond, I just walk away. Not worth my time.

My husband is one of those people with a diminished capacity for understanding. I'm constantly showing him why I can't eat something. He is starting to simply ask, can you eat this?

My husband does the same thing. “Oh, don’t worry” he says “you’ll be fine..”. Easy for him to say when I’m the one with neuropathy and what ever else down the road. 🙄
