I'm a 30 year old male, type 1 diabetic. I found out I had diabetes approximately 5 or 6 years ago and am now insulin dependent. With a strict diet and exercise I was able to lose about 70 pounds upon my initial diagnosis. However, over the last couple of years, I've gained much of that weight back. (I weight about 250 lbs. now.) I've been fighting with depression issues and am currently taking medication to help me in that area. I have little to no motivation, so it's very hard for me to get into an exercise routine. I also sit in a cubicle all day and go to school nights, so when I do get a chance to eat, I tend to eat excessively and poorly. (To the point of adversely effecting my diabetes.)
