Day 5. Week 7. FBS 176. Either I made the wrong food choices or too much exercise + 1200 cal. food intake shut my metabolism down for the day? Who know's. Maybe just an abnormality . See what today brings!

I am really surprised by the nutrition calculations of the meals I've eaten. I am missing certain key items (calcium) consistently, and I thought I was eating healthy.

Just take it one day at a time.

Honestly, that isn't even really my FBG, because I stayed up well into the night and ate something at about 2 AM.

Definitely not par of the program.

I have to get my sleep back on track.

First Day of Week 7! Today is the first day I have had a high fbs since I started it was 196 this am. Im sure its from the carb intake I had late supper last night that was turkey chili beans, cornbread, a piece of homemade sourdough with cheese; graham cracker with honey greek yogurt. I can't believe this challenge is about over.

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.

the challenge for me is almost over. I did manage to lose weight but still need to work on tracking food. I increased my exercise to 4 days a week between 30 to 50 minutes. I had to mix exercises I lost motivation doing the same exercises everyday. When i mixed them up i was excited about exercising. Never thought I would say that.

I'm back on track with exercising. I do about 50 minutes total. I'm mixing different exercises to keep it from getting boring for me. I do track my food about 2 days a week need to really work on that. That's been a struggle for me.

SANDRA - You might want to set your clock or something to remind you to eat your snack every day. Eating your snacks will help you to lose weight also providing you don't go over your allowed number of calories in the day. They really are important. So many times people will eat less thinking that they will lose weight but that isn't so. If you want to lose and to keep it off, you have to eat your 3 meals a day plus 1-3 snacks a day - exercising will also help a lot. So, set the kitchen timer, alarm clock, or whatever you have. emoticon

Half the time I forget to eat my snacks I am not hungry and don't think about it. My Dr wants me to eat snacks even if I am not hungry. Now I have post-ems all over the house to remind me.

SANDRA2BHEALTHY - Walking is my main exercise and it really makes a difference all the way around. Are you weighing yourself at least once a week? What about measuring yourself once a month. Be sure you are eating your 3 meals a day as well as your 1-3 snacks a day.

WTLSSRTR - I wouldn't worry about your FBS of 104. That's still in the normal range. As for your 87 BS, mine will drop much lower than that when I don't have enough carbs with my breakfast. Just be sure that you have your 3 meals plus 1-3 snacks a day in order to help keep your BSs from crashing or spiking a well as to keep you from over eating at the next meal. The snacks also helps to keep your metabolism working at a nice level.

If you continue to be worried about it, then I'd contact your dr or his nurse and ask him/her about it.

Week 7, Day 1

FBS: 96 emoticon

Everything's going really well. Walked a mile this morning and did some strength training. Blood sugar numbers are staying between 84-98 for fasting and 96-120 after meals. I've had a handful of mornings where my FBS was a couple of points over 100 but I'm just not gonna sweat it and neither is my doctor. My A1C is 5.7% so I'm 100% off all oral meds and insulin now, so I am haaaaaaaaapppppeeeeee!! I've lost 73 pounds since I started my weight loss journey which is 3 pounds over my doctor's goal weight for me and I am feeling like a completely new person.

Thanks Kathy! FBS this morning was 126 but I'm happy with it, for now. :) My usual is in the 130-150 range. It also takes me almost 2 days to get my bs back to normal after a bad day. I increased my Victoza last Friday and have no appetite again. I make myself eat some but find I push it away after a few bites. I just want to know when my energy level will increase as I'm tired of being tired. emoticon

Congratulations!!! I knew you would get there.

I just found out how delicate my low blood sugar is. My daughter had a birthday and I went to the BBQ for her. I ate thing I should not have. The next morning my FBS was 147 (up from around 100) and it took two days to go down. I guess I have to watch it all the time.

FBS this morning was 125, starting to come down. Increased my Victoza to 1.2 Friday night so it is helping a little. I lost another pound down to 211.8 from 232 starting. I need to be more consistent with making myself get up and exercise. I do it sporadically and not really enough to help with weight loss or toning/strength. I just feel tired all the time, like I have no energy at all. When I do exercise is when I feel I'm bursting with energy and this is really rare. I will keep pushing though. Every little bit helps. I'm in week 7 and will probably start the challenge over again at the end of week 8 and really make myself follow the exercise challenges to the T. Today may be a bit hard for me because I love grilled food but the added sauces on the ribs don't help, neither does mom's homemade potato salad emoticon . I will just have to watch the portion size as I try to do faithfully.

I walked and jogged my way to victory. emoticon

I still have the pedometer on to keep tracking my steps. My goal is 6,000 steps per day. I think today will be the first time I have actually met that goal. emoticon

I have completed a 8 minute toning/strength video. I plan on doing more later today. emoticon emoticon

I have been tracking all my exercise and food in the Sparkpeople trackers. emoticon emoticon

I hope to have that trophy soon!

Week 7 Day 4: I walked 20 minutes this morning around a new track. I walked the track 2 times, so I got just under 1 mile. Tomorrow I plan on walking the track 3 times so I can log 1 mile for walking. Being able to walk this morning was an increase in my cardio since I changed where I walked and increased the speed as well. I am still tracking my food and I eat more than 5 fruits and veggies daily emoticon

Week 7 - Day 5 - FBS 102. I've been under the weather for 3 days but I think I am on the mend today.

I put a new battery in my step counter. Then I put the timer on for 5 minutes every hour or so and walk up and down my hallway.

It's raining again today so this is how I am getting a little bit of walking in. I would like to get 10,000 steps per day but haven't made it that far yet... but I will. emoticon

Today I learned a very valuable lesson that exercise really does help us lose weight but more importantly for this group, sufficiently lower blood sugar numbers. I went for a 20-30 minute hike up a steep hill in our neighborhood. I didn't make it all the way to the top of the hill and then around the upper cul-de-sac. I got dizzy and seriously out of breathe, so I had to quit about 3/4 of the way up the hill. This hill will not defeat me, I will conquer it, I will peruse until I can and do.

Anyway, I digresed a little. What I wanted to say was that after the amount of exercise I did yesterday, this morning my blood sugar was 139 where it had been mostly almost 200, that's quite a difference and has convinced me to exercise more. Today I visited the local YMCA and have a free guest pass for a week which I intend to use. Today I did 3, 5 minute workouts on the cycle for a total of 15 minutes and 1/2 a mile. I got my heart rate up to 125 and tonight my legs feel like jelly. When we got home I still had to make juice, clean the kitchen and prepare dinner for myself and my disabled daughter, I'm pooped and going to bed.

I really appreciate the fact that I was set up with a Diabetic Nutrition Tracker, I have used it daily since I started SP. Soon after I found this group and the 8 week challenge. Can't believe that I have already participated for 7 of the 8 week program.
Even though I haven't lost weight yet it's still been very helpful and worthwhile. Right now I'm stuck at a plateau. Which like the hill, I will make it past those barriers!

To the new people in the group, welcome, you've come to the right place to learn to better control and manage your diabetes through good nutrition and regular fitness!

Take Care,

Ali emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

checking in - St. Patty's day meal was great...tough week ahead as I get ready for a huge fundraiser dinner...no time for exercise, totally stressed, kids out for spring break, and I have to work all week too... to help I had a cleaning crew come to the house and do a deep spring clean for me and I'm learning how to delegate to the volunteers for the dinner... the goal this week is to just remember to take my diabetes meds...

Gained a pound this week, but I made some shady food choices, kept within my calories for the most part but some not so healthy choices in there. So, back to being more careful, don't want it to spiral.

Week 7-Day 5
FBS 100

Have been keeping with the challenge but not able to get to check in each day. Off for some cardio and ST in a few. Logging my meals and planning ahead is a great help.

Hey Carol, see in Week 8 on Wednesday! You are doing Great!
