Re: [IP] Re: weight

My endo is thin, very thin.  Keeps telling me what his wife does daily for
her exercise.  meanwhile, here in the real world where I live, I home school
my 2 youngest. children (3rd grade & 6th grade), don't have a maid, and help
my husband in a business he owns.  The reason he wants me at that weight is
because that's what I weighed at 30.  16 years ago. Two children ago..
There is only one other endo in my area and my ins won't cover him. Last
letter my endo sent after blood work, "You don't need more insulin just more
walking!"  What to do?
