Hi All,
 
I am hoping that this forum will lead me to the help I need. I have been diabetic for 17 years now, since I was 13. I had always had good control over my weight. That was until about 3 years ago when I brike my ankle in 3 places. While I was down I gained 25 pounds, and since getting back on my feet another 10.
 
I go to the gym and play squash regularly, but seem to never lose a pound. I need some sort of diet and excerise plan. I have talked to my doctor and nutritionist, but to be honest they dont seem to be much help in the weight loss topic. I am willing to do what I need to, but need some help... some sort of mentor or buddy program might be good.
 
Anyway I hope you can help. Thank you in advance.
 
Paul

I'm not so sure I can really be of any help, but these are the tree sports you usually consider to be the best for your health:
- Running/jogging;
- Cycling (specially if running is to hard on your joints, e.g. if you're overweight);
- Swimming (somne consider this to be the most complete sport (working all your main muscle groups); the suppor you get from the water is also great for your joints. If oing it in a swimming pool (most likely), you'll have to be careful with cuts in your fingertips and feet, from pushing against the wall.).
Also, be careful with that "athlete foot", that can come from walking barefoot in a public dressing room. Always use slippers, even in the shower!

I myself am currently doing Chi-Kung (chinese therapeutical gymnastics) and Tai-Chi (a "gentle" kind of martial arts). But then again I never had weight problems.

By the way, are you a type 1 or 2. Type 1 usually don't change their weight much, in neither direction.

Paul,
I found a calorie-food-carb-fat-protein planner on line that you can download and use for 2 weeks for free. It really helped me a lot and I've been steadily losing weight with its help. It's called CalorieKing.com and has extensive food lists as well as ways to add foods you buy and put in the info from the nutrition label. I liked it so much that I bought it, but it was only $15.00. That's much less than I have ever spent on any weight loss or carb counting program including the weekly ones. Give it a look and see if it helps you.

Good luck.
