• Weight loss---help

    I am a type 1 diabetic and 66 years old. I find it impossible to lose weight. I was told that my insulin makes it difficult to lose as well as a the fact that I have Hashimoto's disease (which is borderline). I am 5'7" and weigh 170 lbs.---the most I have ever weighed. I do limited exercise , don't eat a lot, but feel my metabolism is at ground zero. I eat well due to my diabetes and my A1c is 6.2. Should I just give up and eat for my diabetes? Seems I can't lose weight no matter what I try. I just need to get started---5 lb. loss would be wonderful for motivation, but what do I need to do? So, so frustrated! BTW I am female so am also post menopausal, too.
