Hello and welcome!

Great that you have managed to overcome the eating disorders.  Hats off to you!  

Weight loss the healthy way is typically a slow process.  Can you tell us what you are eating / est. how many calories per day?  Are you able to exercise?

Some people with diabetes find that they can lose weight more easily (and reduce their insulin dose) if they follow a low carb  / high healthy fats / moderate protein diet.

Hope this helps.  Please come back and tell us more and ask some questions....
