I survived the endoscopy! The worst part was getting the IV in. Cried, cried cried. The procedure itself was nothing. And that's what they found... nothing. A little erosion from NSAids, but that isn't causing my issue. I'm supposed to call him in a month and let him know how I'm doing.
My blood sugars have been a little high since Tuesday as my eating/medication habits got skewed. I am hoping things settle down by the weekend.

I plunked down my $48.99 yesterday for a year of Spark Coach. I am hoping it will help keep me accountable. No weight loss yesterday, but a bit of drama over dinner. I was tired, so the rest of the family ate earlier, then my husband offered to go pick up dinner for me. Would you believe I actually cried over trying to pick a meal that stayed within my calorie range, carb range, and interested by taste buds?
With a 10.6 lb loss in about 10 days I should be jumping for joy. I faxed my blood sugars for the past week to my doctor today so he can decide whether to adjust my insulin dose (just started 4/9). I am doing better out of the gate today with water than the past several days.
I have hopes that soon I will begin to feel like I am controlling what happens with my blood sugar and my weight, rather than observing and documenting. I want control!

I *THINK* I am going to subscribe, just actually have to pull the trigger. I've dealt with weight issues all my life, so alot of this so far isn't new, but the "accountability" factor is alot...
Stepped on the scale this morning, down 10.6 lbs from last Monday. I wish I could pinpoint what I am doing right; my caloric intake has been closer to 2200 calories this week. Blood sugars are improving, but not ideal yet. I have to fax in my readings to my doctor so he can determine if my dose needs adjusting.
We'll see how the remainder of the day goes!

So I'm on day 4 of my 7 day sparkcoach trial. I am thinking about enrolling for a year, but haven't decided. I know the steps and suggestions are useful, they just haven't "moved" me yet.
We went out to dinner last night, and I brought 1/2 my food home - YAY me. Sometimes I struggle more with the diabetes than the calories. It's like fighting a two headed demon. Since weighing on my doctor's scale last Monday I've dropped 6 lbs. I still feel pretty bloated, but I am encouraged. I need to lose another 10 at least before I feel like I'm close to be being back on track.
