Just a girl trying to find her way, and finding th(in)spiration.

I'm trying my darndest to even out my blood sugar. I had a fasting BS of 165 this morning (which is great compared to what it was when I wasn't watching carbs).

I had squash (yellow) for breaky this morning accompanied by two turkey hot dogs.Well the squash JaCkEd up my bs! So no more for me!

I didn't have lunch today because I woke up late this morning. So I had two snacks this afternoon, spread out.

I felt kind of shaky and SWEATY! I checked my BS and it was 146. Why would that make me shaky? Weird...............

I made Onion and Chesse Quiche this evening with Asparagus and tomatoes. Unfortunately it's made me have a system dump! So now I'm affriad to cough or laugh too hard!! LOL

TMI I know! But this is my little space. I will be honest with myself and anyone I meet!

I will be making Deviled Eggs tomorrow and avoiding squash!

I'm not sure how other people feel about coming back to this WOE, but I find it almost comforting. Like a best friend who is a terrific system.

My mama took my little one for a couple days. I get him back tomorrow and I am pretty excited about it! =D

I'm down to 257.7 this morning! I am pretty excited about it!


See ya tomorrow Maybe earlier!

I just took my BS at 9:30 (two hours after I ate) it was 169.. That's a lot better than 241! It makes me feel good to see better numbers! They aren't awesome, but I see improvement!

How much squash did you eat? What meds are you on for your diabetes? It really is important to get your blood sugars lower as soon as you can. I know you will do that!

Any time it gets over 140 or so, it can be doing the diabetic damage we all are trying to avoid.

Sometimes you just can't get it that low with just your eating, no matter what you eat. I know I couldn't. Better to take something than let it stay too high. Good luck! *hug*

No matter how low carb I go, my BS (especially fastings ie dawn phenomenon) are high. I could not tolerate the oral meds and am now on 24 hour Lantus Insulin and am finally down to 100 for fastings. How many carbs were in the amount of squash you ate? Good luck to you!

Hey girls!!! Good morning/afternoon to ya! I know that I've been watching my sugar and went on the LC WOE yesterday and I went from a Fasting BS of 241 to 146 this morning! I don't have insurance and I really am doing everything I can to save me. If I have any weird problems (other than the copius amounts of sweat) but that is normal for me when I LC. =D

I'm doing well, having no cravings, and kicked any caffeine drinks to the curb!

Feeling really good!

I just had a wonderful dinner of Sauteed Onions and Kielbasa with a side of steamed broccoli.

Lots of Crystal Light, Water, and Caffeine Free Diet Coke.

Woke up with a fasting BS of 158! Getting better.. I have a bit of a headache today, but that isn't unusual!

Finished off the onion/cheese quiche (small piece) and hot dogs (My fav!!)

Going out to dinner tonight, but I'm not worried at all about it! =D

Think I'm going to take a nap and get rid of this headache!
