I'm not into the game, might have it on as back ground, but then again the puppy bowl is on and I love that one!!! HE HE HE
It is Super Sunday for me because of my new start in life. This is really working for me. I've never had anything work before. I've never had anything that I felt I could really stick with.
I not only feel like I can stick to this, I'm really enjoying the food I'm eating. I feel like I have found so many wonderful treats.
I think the thing is that my tastes have changed. I use to crave sweets, now I just don't. That started several years ago, when I quit adding sugar to my coffee. Then I found I didn't like any sweet drinks at all. I still ate sweets, but not like I did when I was young. As of today, I just don't have much interest in them.
When my doctor told me I had to go gluten free, my first thought was there is not way I can do that. But then, I thought, well I'm going to give it a try. Then I did a bunch of research and found that I would be better off if I went totally grain free all together. I talked with my doctor and she agreed 100%. All thought I have to say, it is a whole lot easier to not eat bread (my once favorite food) when you know what it will do to you. I don't know if that is why I have not craved it, or if my mind has just grown up and I realize what is best for me.
The biggest excitement for me is my blood sugar level. I've not had a fasting level about 86, and my highest level 2 hours after I ate was 96. I have been testing my blood twice a day, wow my fingers are a bit sore, but I'm going to continue to test to make sure that I'm under control. OH YEA, I haven't taken any metformin since Tuesday. My doctor told me to go down to one a day. I don't like taking it because it makes me sick to my stomach. So I started taking only the one at night. Then I started thinking, what is making my blood level go up at night if I'm not eating. When I go to bed it is in the 80's, so why would I need it. DON'T worry, I'm going to check with my doctor about that, but with how good I'm feeling, and my numbers, I would really question her if she said no, go back on it.
The other thing I am finding that I'm not drawn to much anymore is salt. I put it on my omelet this morning and it just made it taste weird. Has anyone else experienced that?
With all the struggling I've done with my weight over the years it gives me such happiness to think that it has finally kicked in. I'm finally going to be healthy ~ It only took me 50 years!!!
If I can do this, you can do it too. Keep the faith!
Have a wonderful Super Sunday. Make it so!!!
