Fall Biggest Loser Recap

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

My biggest goal was to get off the sugar. I did that pretty well. I had a few days back on sugar when I ate chocolate during a low sugar episode. I am getting my insulin straitened out and I am staying off the sugar. I have gone out to potlucks with yummy desserts and not eaten ANY.

I know that many of you will tell me that moderation is the key. I get the principle. But, I was struggling with moderation and I like the idea of abstinence for now. I will continue this until January 15 and maybe a bit beyond.

I have been spotty at recording my food. I have done much better at eating planned meals and ontime. I am doing better at keeping the kitchen clean most of the time. I am feeling better about the journey that I thought. My bloodsugars are down. My weight did not respond as much as I had hoped. I guess that will come.

I am still feeling a bit doubtful. But, I feel so much better off sugar and exercising more that if I cannot get the weight to come down I know that at least I will be healthier. (There is a little voice that says I cannot fail. Unfortunately it is very small and very faint. )

    Yeah! I agree. None is so much easier than moderation.

    It is great to hear you talking like the glass is half full -- rather than half empty! Looking at the bright side, the optimistic side, really helps I think...

    That voice will get stronger.
I think you are doing great. And you are right sometimes it has to be all or nothing.
WTG on doing what you need to do for you!

    Woo Hoo, you are doing it! Yes moderation is the key, but you know yourself better than anybody else. There may come a time when you can eat the sweets in moderation or not! I think you will find once the blood sugars get under better control, your weight will come off! It has for my Son who has been Type 1 since 16. Mean while trust yourself! emoticon
