#150: Weight Loss with T1D
The numbers on the scale can be a big source of stress for people with T1D. It just adds to the mental and emotional load that diabetes already brings. But what can we do about it?
Meet Jeff. He's a former pro athlete. But since he retired and got a little older, he's been struggling to lose weight. Like many of us, when Jeff goes low, he tends to binge eat. And this cancels out any progress he's made towards controlling his weight.
This week on the LiveFree with T1D podcast, I'm working with Jeff. I'm helping him change his thinking about his weight and pay more attention to his overall health. We talk about how the number on the scale is just a number. And we discuss better ways to measure health.
