Monday, March 18, 2019      1 comments

Well, I didn't gain any more weight back.. but didn't lose any either.. stayed at 239. But that's ok, I was still pretty sick at the beginning of last week. I guess I must have had the flu, not just a cold. I ate too many carbs and fat this p... Read more

Monday, March 11, 2019      0 comments

Well, I gained back 1 lb this past week. I'm not really shocked about it, since I ate too many carbs and too much sugar, even if I did stay within my calorie limits each day (or very close to it). I was sick.. when I'm sick, I want comfort foo... Read more

I started to do what I heard on a medical TV show with Dr. S. Gupta a couple of weeks ago. He was talking about diet and times of day that we eat and how much and how it affects blood sugar. According to him, if you want to keep your blood sug... Read more

This past year has been stressful, only because of the new job. My hours have been cut way back, but I like that. Unfortunately I gained some of the weight back that I had lost last year... So, I've had to start over yet again. But I've been ... Read more

As you can see, I didn't do too well after my last attempt, over a year ago (to get back on 'the wagon'). So, here I go again! I absolutely MUST do this, this time. My blood sugar is rising and I'm close to becoming a full blown diabetic.... Read more
