Type-2 Diabetes and morbidly obese
I have been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes and I am classed as morbidly obese so I am trying to lose weight with diet and exercise in order to reverse the diagnosis. The problem I am having is that after an initial loss of 6lbs I have now gone a month of really good healthy eating and a vigorous exercise routine but have been weighed today and I have not lost a single thing! I don't understand how this can even be. I have changed my lifestyle around completely I am eating all good healthy things (I am a vegetarian ). I am exercising 100% more than I ever did. I just don't understand. I am so upset I don't know where to go from here. I am 21 and I do a half-hour walk with my 2 dogs every morning then 3- 15 minutes goes on the treadmill every day. I suffer from Epilepsy so I have to be a little careful. Any ideas on what I am doing wrong

@daarshik You sound like you are exercising and making great food choices! Now you may need to think about the calories in those serving sizes and portions of your great choices and the toppings you put on your salads. Always drink plenty of water to stay hydrated and keep your body working at it's optimum level. You also must remember that by exercising you are toning up and adding muscle mass which is a fabulous thing. However to lose weight, one must consume fewer calories than one is using up, so by a little fine-tuning of your diet you may get to the fewer calories. Keep up the great work you are already doing and see a medically accredited nutritionist if you need help in your fine-tuning.
