Wow, that's scary!! Are you feeling okay?

As much as I want to and as much as I try and figure a way it always boils down to "carbs are not my friends". Particularly wheat & sugar. I can get away with the occasional potato or beans but that's about it. If I have plenty of protein already in my system, like a good low carb dinner I might get away weight wise with a dessert, but more often then not it just wakens the sleeping monster. I think that was my problem yesterday. I had leftover pasta for lunch.

How's DH doing?

They still haven't released him from the hospital. His temp is back up and is bp is dangerously low. I am pretty scared and am hoping that the iv antibiotics start working soon! You hear about these drug resistant bugs these days and pray that the med kills the bacteria eventually.

Between DH being sick and my recent realization that I am running some scary high blood glucose readings I have become scared straight
Seriously carbs are poison regardless of whether or not they make me gain weight or not....ironically I haven't gained but my bg tells the real story.

How are things with you Terri?

Hey Jeanie,
I kind of got knocked of my rocker yesterday with a work Seminar and DH putting a deposit down on a puppy So I ate crap all day for no reason. The way I feel I think I'll skip weighing in this week. I'm back on IE today trying to decide on sticking with that, going to No S, or just going back to low carb. Iím super busy at work and with the puppy coming in 16 days I need something that is easy enough to stick to or Iím going to blow up like a balloon. So I feel a bit out of control today.

Howís DH? Is he home yet?

Aww a puppy, good walking exercise though right? I don't know sometimes low carb seems the easiest, yet at other times it seems like a total pain. I don't want to cook eggs or fry a steak dammit, I want to grab some bread make a sandwich and have some pretzels!! No mess easy peasy

I have no option though my bg numbers are too high, at 52 with a family hisory ot type 2 I am playing with fire. Most of my younger siblings already have type 2 due to their diet so I have no choice. I want to be strict right now and get in control of the carbs by eating very low carb and then use my bg meter to see what I can add safely.

DH is home now, he is still weak and I worry about him

I know what you mean. DH is out of town. I got a mini pot pie for dinner and light salami and light bread to make a sandwich with mustard for lunch. I don't need to eat "diet" food on IE but I'm finding if I actually only eat to satisfaction, these light versions, that I like, fit the bill. It's like the WW days without figuring out what I could still have for two points I'm thinking for health I'm going to probably go back to low carb. I just know it's a healthier choice. And for the most part, since I'm been doing it so long, it is easy for me. But today easy peasy won.

Glad DH is home. At least he is under your care.

No, going to visit this weekend and pick him up next.

I'm still doing IE. So far I've stayed the same. If I can manage to keep that up for a while i'll be happy.

How is it going Terri? I am doing pretty well, Dr. started me on metformin for high blood sugar. It has been a real wake up call for me and have since been on plan faithfully. I eat low carb but allow almonds and an occasional splurge like tator tots with my bunless burger.

Hey Jeanie Girl Good to see you! Sounds like the metformin was just what you needed. So glad you're feeling better!!

I'm still doing IE and feeling pretty good about it. I haven't lost much, but have maintained in the low end of my window. Last Saturday I even glimpsed 139.9 for the first time in a year. Right now, with the puppy, it would be hard to really do much else. Even though I'm not losing the last 15, at least I'm not gaining 15 more.

Way to go Terri, 130's woo hoo!!! I have seen a low of 141 and am happy about that, it's been a while since I have been this low. A lot of my clothes are fitting better.

Thatís awesome Jeanie!! So are you still following a basic low carb approach? Do you think the metformin is making it easier to stick too?

I need to get my Mo Jo back. This week was my birthday and Iíve had too many splurges. Iím starting to feel it in my clothes. DH is out of town this week so that should make it a little easier. I also want to get my strength routines back going. Since Iíve had the pup my routines have gone out the window.

I am doing basic low carb but allow almonds most days, I find that they really fill me up and provide that salty crunch I so often miss. I have been walking and doing resistance training as well, that helps keep me on track and allows me to eat a tad more, so I don't feel as hungry or deprived. I can't really say the metformin does anything magical, but the thought of becoming a full fledged type 2 diabetic certainly is helping to keep me in line. I have watched too many family members ignore the pre-diabetes stage and then progress onto eventually needing to inject insulin... I don't want to go there!

Yeah, seeing my cholesterol go up a few years ago got me in line. I need to refocus on that and use it again.
