Wednesday Morning...

Wednesday, October 28, 2009

Ok mid-week already, wow - christmas will be here before we realize it...

Blood Sugar/Glucose was 136 this morning, lowest ever since starting to monitor, when I started in the middle of Sept. 2009 it was in the mid 300s'

I'm doing really well these last few days with the changes to my meals - eating most carbs at breakfast and lunch. Yesterday for lunch I had a Morningstar Farms Chik Pattie on rye bread with a little yellow mustard, lettuce, tomatoe - pretty good for an all veggie chicken patty. Also had a small baked potatoe with an 1/8 cup of fat free cottage cheese and about 40oz of water. Dinner was a huge salad with one blackened chicken breast, cooked dry no fats or oils and a few aspargus spears and a 40oz glass of crystal light.

For breakfast I usually do 3/4 cup of Special K Protein Plus cereal mixed into one Blue Bunny Lite yogurt, lowest sugar yogurt around that we have found so far and about a 16oz cup of just plain old joe! Sometimes real early in the morning if I start my day at like 3:30-4am like today,. I have a Balance Yogurt Honey Peanut Bar, it's 200 calories, 6 Fats, 22 carbs & 15 Protein and it is good for me to get going for a few hours until my wife gets up and we have breakfast around 7-8am.

Anyway -I'm looking forward to weighing in this Friday and I'm very curious to see if this reduction in my nutritional parameters and the switching around of my typical dinner meals for lunch and having the lighter less carb meal for dinner brings about some results...I told my wife last night that if eating like this(between 800-1200cal a day) does not drop the weight...I'll be pretty confused. *Calorie reduction was under direction of my medical team, to see how my body reacts, will I tap into my stored energy - trying to compensate for the side effects of one of my diabetes meds. Just in case anyone gets alarmed by the low calorie range, I know...but we are giving it a few days to see. I've already been hearing it from my wife and my in-laws...

I remember this one time at band camp...no just kidding, but really I remember this one time when I was in my teens and this jerk-off doctor said something to the effect of "You are like a seal, you could not eat for a whole month and you'd be just fine living off of your blubber." I was a scared kid and didn't know anything about how to handle myself or speak up - grateful that even though alot medical professionals have a long way to go as far as their attitudes toward fat people go - it's alot better, atleast it seems that way to me. I'm so thankful for the team of support I have built up around me - I'm pretty sure that's I'm still going...

Ok enough of my rambling- have a smooth wednesday good people!
Thanks for the Support! emoticon

    emoticon for the beautiful punkin! Love it!
    I´ll never understand the way SOME people talk to kids! It just makes my blood curdle and I want to shake ´em!!!! Perhaps THEY had a perfect childhood where noone said bad things to them so they don´t have unhealthy, self-condemning words going ´round and around keeping them from reaching THEIR potential! OR maybe they did and they take it out on others who don´t know how to defned themselves. Well, thank goodness WE grow-up and finally (for some of us it takes a really long time! I know from experience.) begin to actively participate in a proactive movement to stand up for ourselves and do what is best for our health and well-being. Bye, bye, passivity! Helllllllooooo, the new improved MEEEEEE!!!!

    Great to hear about the blood sugar improving. Whew! emoticon
    Good one on the vegie chicky pattie with lots of vegies! emoticon
    Check out the lowfat or nonfat plain yogurts and add a Tablespoon of diet or (if allowed) low sugar jam. Saves $. I showed my mom this when I was visiting my folks in the Spring. Limited on what they have to spend and she´s also diabetic. She loved it.

    I think and hope it pays off for you big time. That feeling of seeing progress on the scale is so satisfying! You stay postive and focused, b/c you are doing soooo good. Keep up that great work! I'm proud of you for hanging in there. You should pat yourself on the back right now! emoticon emoticon
