    I have lost weight and as I think I mentioned I have seen my consultant who was very pleased.

    He has taken me off my metformin - which helped make me less insulin resistant.

    I duly came off and have just carried on a normal week of LL shakes and water and I have felt fine.

    I have weighed today and have put on 6lbs (my scales) in one week!

    So I have just started back on the metformin again, I think I need it don't you?!

    This has been helpful because:

    a) it have convinced me I need to stick with the diet and lose the weight quickly, anything else would work but I'd be back on the slow track.

    b) I need metformin to help my body process food properly - so it's not about my eating!

    I am very pleased, it's nice to have some insight :D

    That is very interesting. My daughter has a problem with insulin resistance and the processing of CBH.

    hi Miss F,

    I too was insulin resistant and took metformin, but came off it when I reached goal some 4 months ago now, I found I only fluctuate up to 5lbs max and have maintained no problems, hope your body works it out too.

    Oh Sun thanks for that - it is a relief! I hope to come off it eventually and to know its a fluctuation rather than a permanent measure is great news - thank youx

    Yay just been to weigh in and only put on a pound! Not altering my ticker because that pound will be gone by tomorrow!

    I am very pleased. :D
