So shocked right now!!! I have not been able to lose weight since June. I had been stuck on the same weight.
In the past 3 weeks I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Diabetes. Doc took away the Fibro meds last week, because they were making me sicker, and started me on Metformin, low dose, last Friday, to see if I can get my numbers under control and lose 10 pounds in 3 weeks.
So far, my glucose was at 274
and 284 in weight, when I started. As of today, my glucose number has been between 139-193
and I have kept off the 3 pounds I lost over the weekend and lost one additional pound as of today in total of 4 pounds this week. My official weigh in will be tomorrow, but just to be this far makes me really happy.
The only thing I changed in my diet this week is that I have only consumed bread once this week (yesterday, I think that's why my number was 193), pasta once this week and no soda, at all. The sad thing is
I also eliminated some stresses from my daily life (family
), although I love nephew and his brood dearly, sometimes certain people are not healthy for you if all you do is tip toe around causing additional stress to make others happy, so, for me, this is good.
Shocking part is, I have only exercised 3 times this week. I usually do 7 days a week, anywhere from 30 min to an hour a day. So I'm wondering, other then the medicine, if either the type of exercises i was doing were not helping or I was doing to much and my body was confused.
Who knows, all I do know, whatever it is, it's working and I will continue with that.
The only issues now is that my muscles and joints are still hurting.
So in two weeks we will know what to do with the Fibromyalgia if losing more weight isn't helping. But I am still very happy of this week's outcome.
