With Metformin I don't put on weight. I've been taking Metformin on and off for 9 years."I have been cutting bread out of my diet lately. Haven't had a soda or any caffeine in almost a week now. I am learning to say no to temptation even when I am surrounded by it. When DH and I were in our apartment we just got rid of all the temptation but then we moved into my moms and she always has junk food on hand, seems to think that it is ok to eat spaghetti for three suppers meals a week. Orders pizza at least twice a week, just smurf like that. Before rather than saying no I would just be like hells yes. Now I am just learning to resist that stuff.
