RE: [IP] weight gain

When I started pumping, I proceeded to LOSE 15 pounds over a span of 3
months. I was happy, but my endo (and my mother ;-) were worried. I
realized that it was because when I started pumping, I CUT BACK on snacks,
started skipping breakfast (I'm almost never hungry in the mornings), etc.
So I was eating a lot LESS than I had been.
In the almost-2-years since, I've put 10 of those pounds back on... ;-)
Why is it that people always seem to react to food and diabetes in one of 2
ways -- "Don't eat that!" or "Come on, a little won't hurt"?
