More progress...

Sunday, April 17, 2011

Alright...
This mornings FBS as soon as i rose this morning and put the coffee on i went to the table to check my FBS (Fasting blood sugar) OMG the joy I felt when i saw 95. Now thats progress! You ahve no idea how I ahve struggled lately. For months my numbers ahve been 200 and over 300. Even without sweets, without rice, apsta and bread. I'm taking my diabetes pills at a different time now instead of after my meals jsut before i eat. I'm doing good. Much better. I even ahd 3 slices of veggie pizza yesterday. At 3 different times throughout the day not in one sitting. Very thin paper like crust. Walking on my redmill is helping, too. Just think at my last Dr. visit a couple weeks ago at my 7.6 A1c reading I was begging for Insulin injections. But look I'm doing it on my own.

Sample of what i am eating ...

I had 2 slices of bacon on 1 slice multi grain bread toasted with smart balance margarine. 1 slice canteloupe

Lunch was 1/2 c. cottage cheese and 1/2 c. mixed canteloupe and amndarin oranges

Dinner will be chicken and brocolli/cauliflower stir fry

Protein shake as afternoon snack.



I'd also like to take the time to thank all of you for your loving support you give me on my journey. i couldn't do it without you.

    That is great news! Congratulations.

And I am jealous that you can eat toast and pizza. I'm actually scared to try them because bread and pizza are my worst trigger foods. I figured it would be safer for me to eliminate them from my diet for the first year while I learn to live with the band.

But I am so proud of you! Way to go!

    Deb, what's the name of those protein shakes you get from Costco? Is it the Kirkland brand? Or? I'm thinking I'd better start trying them -- get more protein & leave less room for the naughty stuff!

Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath. And if
you have a friend who makes you laugh, spend lots and lots of time
with them.

I'm doing the Happy Dance...

Friday, April 15, 2011

Since 3 weeks before my surgery as I started drinking the Protein shakes my body was shutting down and my FBS was over 300. Yikes! But the Lap Band Surgery I ahve recently had in March is finally doing what i ahve been hoping form this week my FBS has been under 200 and yesterday before Dinner I even ahd a low of 60 how about that. the fiber in a delicous aple crisp recipe a fellow Spark friend shared with me loaded with good fiber has done the trick. Not only did it keep me regular the fiber ahs contributed to helping my FBS get lower. Proudly this AM I had a reading of 140. It's not good but it is so much better than what it has been. Beans only 1/2 c., egg whites, cottage cheese, yogurt, chicken and fresh and steamed veggies is doing the trick. I am working so ahrd at this and losing 1-2 pounds per wee,.

    Good for you Debbie -- but please be careful of the lows. They can be very dangerous if too low. 60 is about how low you should go. My DH had a 56 reading in the hospital the morning of his surgery, and he started sweating and not able to talk - I don't know how much time he had before going into a diabetic coma. Just be careful. You know your body.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people
to know why I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the
roads weren't paved.

What a Sunday morning...

Sunday, April 10, 2011

Ok, It was early.
I ahd my 1 cup of coffee.
Making my egg beaters with salsa for breakfast.
Went to go take down a bowl out of the cabinet.
8 china bowls of the finest glass and 2 plastic bowls on top of that stack.
Plastic is of course for me, Debbie because I am the clumbsiest you ever ran across.
Well, I took down my plastic bowl and I don't know where I went wrong but the whole damn stack fell down on the floor shattering. *cries

What else will gow rong today. Perhaps I hould stay near the living room or my bed.

Holiday times at the In-Laws in California years ago well when i offered to help set table or clear off the table after dinner i was led to a chair and told to "sit" We'll do it. Because I would not be able to break anything from that chair. Apparently the hubs reported to his mom about my breakaholic problem.

    Hey, could have been worse, YOU COULD HAVE SAT ON THE GLASS!!! If it was me, I would just go to garage sales, buy mismatched stuff, set your table with everybody getting a different color or theme!! IF it breaks, back to the garage sales!!

    Must be going around. I broke two glasses this morning -- but they were cheapies so I didn't feel bad except I had to worry about getting all the glass up so I didn't hurt the dogs.

Sorry about your fine bowls. I have corning ware for plates and I've dropped many times. They have to hit just right to break.

You are perfect the way you are, even if you drop things.
Buy some corning wear dishes, they are harder to break, and set your table however you would like with out worry.
I know DH and in-laws probably mean well, but they don't realize it still hurts.
Off to see mine today. Hugs all around.
