Trying to Lose Weight

For a while now I have been wanting (and kind of needing) to lose about 10 to 15 pounds, but am just not succeeding. I try to cut back on food, drink water, and exercise, but am struggling. The major problem is when I workout, I almost always go low and have to eat/drink sugary foods… Kind of defeats the purpose, doesn’t it? Plus, I tend to feel so shaky that I scarf down every food in sight. Also, I have tried almost everything that I can do to try to avoid a low from exercising, but nothing usually works.

I have been using the glucerna hunger smart shakes. It is a slow metabolism and works to steady the blood sugar plus when i drink one of these i do not feel hungry for several hours. they are available everywhere that has a pharmacy or you can also buy them online.

I am reading a book called pumping with insulin by John Walsh. If you have the pump it is worth getting
