I walked outside twice today. It was a little cold outside, but it sure felt good to be walking.

Just take it one day at a time.

Day 3. Week 3. FBS 151.
More energy. Better mood. Lower stress.
I like this program better than Weight Watchers. It covers all aspects of managing diabetes.

I'm on week 3, even if the Challenge doesn't acknowledge it. Weight is definitely down. Energy definitely up. I tend to low metabolism but been hungry today. I consider that a good sign--metabolism kicked in instead of sleeping. Looking forward to more. Overall my calories are higher than when I started but seeing space in the pants and seeing beneath the belly more. I know I have many challenges ahead. Planning on staying the course. Already survived travel and working nights-- hey serve up the next challenge.

Still seeing lots of progress. I am starting to slowly add exercise back into my routine. I am taking it slowly. My leg is feeling much better, and I am able to walk up and down the stairs without pain. My scale was down another pound this morning. I am measuring my portions, and I am controlling my portions....... I have walked on the treadmill and rode my elliptical bike for cardio so far this week. I have lifted weights.......The exercise is going well.

Week 3 - Day 1
Wow! It is already week three. I am watching all of my calories and checking my nutrition feedback daily. I am struggling with not getting enough of certain nutrients.....potassium is one. I am allergic to bananas, so I will not be eating those. I eat lots of dark veggies,......
I will continue to monitor to make sure that I am eating a balanced diet.

Just take it one day at a time.

Week 3, Day 2: Weigh in was not as encouraging today...gained 3 pounds back. Ate out only once this week, otherwise, I did everything as I should. But I will continue on as I know weight fluctuates on a daily & sometimes, weekly basis.

You can often Google it and come up with sites that have numbers for various other activities. It's a best "guesstimate" but I like to see those numbers too.

Judy - I did hear back from the endrocrinologist and my dietitian. You were right...I have raised my calorie intake to 1300 - 1500. But I have gained weight. I am a loss of what to do. I have increased my exercise from 20 minutes of chair exercise to 55 minutes of chair dancing. The 24th I have an appointment with the bariatric surgeon and the dietitian. I guess I will see what they have to say. Plateau, maybe??

Slow but steady wins the race!

Very interesting.

I had a bacon burger last night for the first time in I don't know how long.

When I put it into the tracker it came up as somewhere between 800 and 1100 calories, and the only reason I didn't break my calorie count for the day was that I did a lot of walking - at least 7 miles.

Lo and behold, this morning I have the highest FPG I've had in a while.

Definitely can't outrun poor nutrition.

It looks like I'm starting week 3 today, but am confused on weeks. The goals are listed in Sun-Sat streak weeks, but I started this challenge on a Thurs., so can't seem to track my goals for a week to coincide with which challenge week I'm on. It's really confusing.

I did do more physical today, so that's good. #s are good this week.
It's challenging logging all this (maybe I'm trying to track too much - -kinda went all gung-ho)
How do you determine calories burned in certain workouts when it's not listed, anyone? Still trying to figure out fitness tracking.

Change the I to WE, and Illness becomes Wellness!

Thanks Judy F.

Cindy, NC

I have come to the realization that the scale is not my friend or foe...It is only the messenger!

God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, or sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way. If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.

ALICE - Has your endocrinologist given you a calorie limit of 1000 - 1300? You would advise you to check with her. I know the diabetes assoc. says NOT to eat less than 1200 calories or your body will go into starvation mode and hang on to all the food it can get. Also, when you aren't eating enough calories your pancreas will work over time trying to get your glucose up to where it does belong, thus it would account for your higher blood sugars. Are you eating your snacks between your meals? The snacks will also help to keep your blood sugars from spiking or crashing. Just some info for you to consider and bring to your endocrinologist on your next visit.

Judy - my endocrinologist has lowered my insulin because I am eating less. I am eating between 1000 - 1300 calories. and she said she did not want me to eat to keep up with the insulin. so as a result I am having higher and higher blood sugars. I just took it at 11pm and it was 333. 259 at dinner. and these were taken before meals. as a result I am feeling kinda sluggish - tired. so I don't know....I don't want to go any lower with my calories and I cannot do any more exercises than I do. emoticon

Thanks for asking. emoticon
