Carrie, so sorry that you are having such struggles. I would think that the Dr. would be happy with any plan that would keep the weight off and your AC1 down. Don't expect miracles from the Metformin in stopping your cravings. Not everyone responds as the drug companies say that we will.
I had a long day at work. Left home at 6:45 and got back home at 6:45PM. Picked up rotisserie chicken at the store and made a quick salad for supper. I took my lunch so that was OP. Only problem was that I didn't get any exercise all day. Off to the gym tomorrow.
