Love reading about your journey! DH and I started doing the paleo/primal/low-carb lifestyle about 2 weeks ago since DH is also pre-diabetic and we both has an insulin resistance. I started at 288 lbs and now I'm down 10. We were both on metformin for a while but had to stop. If you don't have an iron stomach, it can be really hard on you. Talk to your MD but be sure you start on a really low dose and slowly increase it so your body can get used to it.

Snacks are by had the hardest thing with a low carb lifestyle. I hate processed stuff and try to buy as much organic stuff as possible, but it's hard. I find hard boiled eggs to be great as a snack, as well as things like organic cheese sticks (I don't forgo dairy, because I may be willing to give up bread/pasta, but you will have to pry cheese from my cold, dead fingers. lol) Also, look for organic beef jerky (or make your own.) For something sweet, try organic dark chocolate, as dark as you can get it. The darker it is, the less sugar is in it. It's been a lifesaver for me when cravings come.

You mention drinking soy milk. You might want to try almond milk. There has been some research lately about the body's hormones and soy, so we have cut out soy and just have organic milk.

Re: your gain, be sure to check your sodium intake on MyFitnessPal. I've had to really cut mine down. Also, do you have a body media fit yet? DH LOVES his because it helps him keep track of his sleep and his calories burned as well and it syncs with myfitnesspal.

Can't wait to read more of your story! And best of luck!
