Morning!
Hmmm, wings sound good, haven't had those in a while.

I think the probiotics are doing something, some of the tummy and bathroom issues I have had with my diabetes meds for almost 4 years are changing??? Hmmmm, that's a good thing

Home today until school is out, then taking DGS for his allergy shot and dinner, used to be ice cream, that turned into a snack and now it is full blown dinner out, that 12 yo can EAT now.

Hi ladies..

I do think that probiotics is a necessity for everyone..I think they help alot in the bathroom area along with magnesium..

JBunny: Do you Zumba on a rug? My fitness center has the Wii version and she has a low carpet, but it is hard to not trip yourself up..Good for you.

12 year olds can eat for sure..

Gosh it is windy here in KS....not cold, but windy.

Yes, I agree that Mexican can be a problem area if I eat the chips before
dinner..I have no self control in that area. One friend solves this by sitting down and when she orders her drink she orders her meal. That way the chips have less table time before the meal comes..Any other suggestions are welcome..

I've been taking probiotics for months and they really do make you feel better. But I haven't tried taking magnesium as an independent supplement. I take a multi that has it in, but I don't think it's a high dose.

Carolyn: My living room has a very low pile carpet so itís not a big hindrance. Itís easier barefoot, my sneakers can sometimes catch me a bit. I do find on some of the turn moves where you are supposed to pivot on one leg in a circle can make my knees feel a bit stressed. Iím not sure if itís the drag of the carpet or just me so I do the dance moves in place without the turning now.

I usually just avoid Mexican but Iíve got a suggestion for Italian! Most restaurants will allow you to substitute broccoli for pasta if you ask. And seafood alfredo over broccoli is just as delicious and satisfying without the carb hit. You can even ask for extra sauce. Yum yum!

Mmmmmm!! I try to avoid Mexican too, but sometimes I just gotta have it and I can get it gluten free. So it is a treat every few months or so.

I have probiotics, but forget to take them. I have them for my kids too and forget to give them to them too. I can't take a multi vit without feeling sick. I have tried all kinds and I just feel

Had a good day today. Missing the beach though and spending time with DH. He's a cool dude!

Have a busy day of fingerprinting (for the adoption) and errands. Then fitting in my workout. Then church tomorrow evening. I am tired just thinking about it!

Hi Mary Kay..Welcome back from FL..A friend just got back and she was chilly..near Daytona..Hope you had some warm days.

Magnesium is good for bathroom issues..You have to be careful and not take too much,
Jess..

Stacey: The beach.....Sandy loves the beach..I think we all love the beach, but most of us are landlubbers in the Midwest, unfortunately..and Texas.

Oww..shrimp alfredo over broccoli sounds great..I'm going to order that next time at our local Italian place.

Hi!

Carolyn - Florida was cold, rainy and foggy!
Tragically I had to spend my time eating and shopping!!

I love the beach too. I wish I could have spent more time there!

Hi Stacey!
I'm a regular here - just spent the last week in FL.
Sounds like you're doing really well on EFGT!

Hi MK, So happy that you're back. So sorry for your bad weather. But Florida does have some good food!! This has been a weird winter all over the place!! Hopefully next year we'll all have better weather on our trips.

I did very well at the restaurant. I was proud of myself. Then I fixed chiles relleno with beef chili for dinner. Quite a bit of cheese but no starch at all. And it was all yummy!! I was down a little bit again this a.m. so we'll see how tomorrow morning goes I guess.

I think I may be one of the few people that really doesn't like the beach. I have such fair and sensitive skin, even with a really high SPF and hourly reapplications I'll burn so quickly and severely that I now just try to avoid the outdoors as much as possible while the sun is up.

I have a question for everyone if you lovely ladies wouldn't mind. I was wondering how much you usually have for dinner? In the EFGT book I know it mentions eating a big breakfast and a small dinner but I find that I'm sort of programed to do the opposite. I tend to have my largest meal as dinner, and I find that even though I get up around 5am to exercise and get ready for work I'm still not hungry in the morning until around 9am. My workplace is very flexible and I just eat breakfast while I work whenever I get hungry but it's just typically yogurt and a little fruit. Has anyone else found this to be an issue? And if so do you have any tips or suggestions?

Hi gals..

Still at 153 and holding.......

Yeah for you, Sandy at the restaurant... and dinner sounded wonderful.

JessB: Dr. G and his lovely wife do eat a big breakfast, moderate lunch and small dinner. I do think that is a really good way to eat, because our metabolisms do slow down after 5 and prepare us for sleep. However, I don't eat that way, because dh comes home and wants real food..I guess I could
eat small portions of the real food..

I think Dr. G. says fruit if you can do it. If you are losing on yogurt and fruit for breakfast, then go for it. For me, it is way too high in carbs to have together for a meal. When he talks about fruit..He says to add it after
a protein/fat meal to slow down your blood sugar release..

Down again this a.m. 143.6!! Woohooo!!! I'll take it!!

I think we've found the culprit that raising DH's blood sugars in the a.m. I bought some protein powder shake mix at Costco that only has 2g carb in a serving according to the label. Well I do believe it's labeled wrong. He gets a giant spike after breakfast when he drinks them. And he's done it twice to double check that it's really the shake. I don't have the ingredient part of the label anymore b/c I took it out of the bag and put it in a canister and only saved the nutri info.

Sandy: Wow..and it could be the amount of protein in that shake..cuz extra protein can cause your blood sugar to spike, too. Did he mix it with cream??? That is too bad..

MK: Sorry about your bad weather..But good food is always a plus.

Who is getting some "weather" tonight??? Big rainstorm coming our way....

Each serving has 27 grams of protein. I don't think any more than a large steak and they don't spike him. He uses very little cream and the rest milk. He's going to try the other brand/flavor and see what happens with that.

It looks like storms are coming. I sure hope not. I signed up again for the WeatherCall service so I don't have to be so afraid when I sleep.

Duh, I meant "and the rest water". No milk. But yes, he's still our guinea pig. Along with having to give up salt he's really bumming. Too many life changes at once.
The good news is the inversion table is really helping him a LOT!

Yeah for the inversion table.... I don't know what my dh would do if he had to give up salt..He salts cottage cheese/watermelon/and canteloupe.

Really rooting for poor little Texas Tech tonight in the Big 12..They have won a conference game all year.

Morning!
We have storms coming. Woke up this morning and turned on the tv in the bedroom to get the forecast and all I get is a bright neon green screen??? Is it the solar strikes or is our tv going out? Hate to mess with problems like this anymore. DH won't even try, will just say, probably need to go buy a new one. Not in the budget right now.

Switched over from byetta shot for my diabetes to victoza. Same type of med, but with byetta, you take 2 shots a day, one in the AM, one in the PM and they have to be within one hour before you eat a meal. Advantage of victoza is that you take it once a day at any time of day and you are done, does not have to be planned around a meal, etc. So, my plan on it is to take it as soon as I get up and be done with it for the day. Won't have to worry about having it with me if we eat dinner out, etc. My cousin switched over months ago and loves it so hoping I have the same great response that she has had.

Might run down to see little Bobby and Ava this morning, haven't seen them for about 3 weeks and Mema is missing them, plus, they are going to Colorado for a ski trip again and I won't see them for another week.

Supposed to rain quite a lot for the next 3-4 days so won't be going much, hope I get some stuff done around here and don't just want to curl up with a book or movie, which is what I LIKE to do on rainy days.

Sandy I hope your hubby has better luck with the protein powders then I did. They didn't often caused me to gain weight but I know if I have one, regardless of what I make it with (cream, H & H, water, almond milk) there isn't a chance that I'll lose weight, never happens. It's a shame because I really enjoyed them and on occasion I still have one but something about that protein powder just does wacky things to my system.

Hi ladies..

Buffy: That victoza sounds a lot better than byetta..I hope you have good luck with it.
No one fixes TV's anymore cuz there are only 3 parts..depending on the part, I guess..
Rain today for us, too..

JBunny: That is interesting on your shakes and not losing weight. I never felt like I had a meal..LOL.

Hi MK: I guess the boys are home, which is fun for you.

Poor KSU is losing to Baylor..Gary took the afternoon off to watch the game..

I have a meeting tonight and made some deadly bars, which I won't eat. Brownieish bottom, gooey middle with pecans/chocolate on the top with pecans and pretzel pieces on the top. I'll have someone taste one tonight and let me know how it is.

Oh Carolyn, food porn!

Got down to see the kids, so darn cute and happy to see Mema and Papa.

TV just needed to have set top box rebooted, forget these are like computers these days.

Got home in time for cold front and rain to hit, temp dropped 20 degrees and rain coming and going but now maybe rain for 3-4 days, yuck.

I am going to be baby sitting my ex's 3 male cats starting Monday while he looks for a house. They are big boys but all 3 sweet and neutered but I am keeping them in our big walk out basement as they would terrize my little 7 pound cat! I'm not sure how long I am baby sitting but I bet at least a month. Noland, the 19 pound orange terror, is an insulin dependent diabetic so must be careful with him.

Yes, Cindy..They will enjoy your new walkout without your sweet little kitteh upstairs..
I'm sure the basement has a door, so you will have different level cats. A month??? Well, you will have more kittehs to pat..

MK: Yup, Spring Break can be squirrelly..especially when they return to the nest..Glad you are having fun.

I stayed the same today. I like having a meal better than just a shake too but I do use them sometimes. DH has used the Atkins shakes and done fine but this one he had yesterday is not good for him.
Carolyn, if he had too much protein how long does it take for your body to recognize it as glucose? He did have a very high protein meal both days with that shake. He also added an egg and 2 slices of bacon!! Plus about 1/4 to 1/2 c. of cream in his coffee and the shake. I figured out it was about 57 grams of protein!!

Enjoy your kitty-sitting Cindy. Do you have to inject Noland?? At least you're experienced with injections.

Buffy, good luck on the new meds. Good news on the TV. My number one rule is if it's not working REBOOT. Everytime DH has a problem that's the first thing I tell him, lol. And it does usually fix any problems.

I finally broke down and bought a Magic Jack today. I was able to make all our cordless phones and our fax run through it!! So far, so good. $39.95 and than includes a year of service!

MK, did the boys go to Florida with you?

The baby is very sick. Sounds like flu. So sad. I sure hope he gets better for his birthday party Sunday.

Oh, Sandy...Dr. Bernstein recommends for his pre-d and d patients, 4 ounces of protein at a time, which is 28 grams..52 percent of protein turns into glucose, according to Dr. A. Dr. B also says that if a person gains on 4 ounces of protein, then they cut down to 3 ounces at a meal..No wonder your dh's sugar was higher..LOL...Anyway, that is what I have read. Dr. Bernstein has a great book on diabetes..Diabetes Solution..It is basically what Barry says, except he is more stringent on the protein because of the diabetes patients he treats.

You are the techno queen, Sandy..Wow..Prayers for our little baby..The flu is going around..

ladies!

I have just gotten all caught up on the thread. Weds and Thurs are my busy days, well Fridays are too.

Anyway, got our fingerprints done yesterday and then in a couple of weeks we will go on the waitlist! YAY!! I also went out to a farm to get some beef and raw milk. The milk is really, really good and I can tolerate it, so I am thrilled with that. The beef is pretty tasty too.

Sandy, I hope the magicjack works for you. I have a friend that had it and it kept dropping calls on them, so they got rid of it. If it really works, I would love to get rid of the phone bill.

Cindy, have fun with the cats. I am not a cat person, but DH is. We can't have them because DS is highly allergic, so I win! LOL!

Carolyn, those bars sound amazing. I feel like I need to come up with a low carb version of those. I love to bake, so maybe I will experiment here soon!

My weight was down .5 from yesterday, but still up .5 from my siggy weight. TOM is slowly starting so I won't expect a loss for a good week or longer. BOO!!

I have that book on order Carolyn and I got an email today that it's been shipped. It's the 2011 updated version. And I got the Diabetic Diet book by Dr. B at the library. His BS's have been really good all day today.

So far so good on the M. Jack. My dad said it sounded the very same as our old land line. So hopefully it'll stay good. I've heard good and bad about the service but for $30 a year it should be ok even if it does drop a call sometimes. Heck I pay a lot more than that for my cell and it still drops calls sometimes, lol. But I can't get rid of that phone for sure! It's my lifeline, lol.

I love ladies trips MK!! Fun times!!!

Morning!
Cindy, you are going to be a busy cat sitter, good luck on the shots, I guess they are easy to give a cat as long as the cat cooperates with you.

Sandy, hope the baby is well soon and his mommy doesn't get it.

I am slowly working on eliminating all the bills I can and have thought about the magic jack, let us know how it works out. We are more and more just using our cell phones but I still have one line in the house that we use for our business number, have always had that number so don't want to give it up until we are completely closed down but we don't get that many calls on it. Gave our fax up a year ago, can scan things into the printer and fax over the computer. Also, keep working on lowering our tv package, now that we have netflix. It takes a lot of time to figure it all out.

MK, know you have enjoyed your kiddos being home but also see you are beginning to enjoy the quietness of the empty nest in between visits.

Stacey, tell us more about the adoption? Wishing you luck there!

Carolyn, you are a walking source of dietary info, I don't know how you retain it all. I can read it but can't remember the ratios, etc. when it comes to telling others, etc. How did your bars go over, bet they were all gone but I don't think I could have stayed out of them.

So far the victoza seems to be working out, don't feel any different than on the byetta but that once a day shot first thing in the AM is wonderful, compared to having to remember to take it twice a day and within one hour of eating. I was always caught out running around, stopping to eat and not having my shot with me. Started out at the lowest dose which you wuold normally stay at for a week, but Dr. told me 2 days since I was already on the similiar drug byetta, now third day I moved up to mid-dose. My BS was a little high the first day but expected that, was good yesterday and this AM.

Rainy here, don't have plans to get out, but need to pay bills and work in office.

Last night was the band concert for DGS 12, it was very good. Amazed at how far those kids have come in 2 years and so glad he loves band. Will be glad when he grows into that tuba he hauls around, it is so big.
