My glucose before breakfast was 110. That’s down 13 from yesterday. That may or may not have anything to do with the new eating lifestyle.
At the weigh-in this morning I had dropped 4.5 lbs. Wonderful. But I don’t anticipate that’ll happen every day. I don't even anticipate that'll regularly happen.
I bought an app: Glucose Companion ($1.99) I want to closely monitor my levels.
The only aspect of my life that’s changed (and yes, I know it’s been a single day) is the water. I hate water. Always have. Now I have to embrace it. I will; I have. My buddy Grant (he’s dropped at least ½ himself) urged me to drink a lot of water. Obviously he knows. I’m drinking it. Usually I’d crawl out of bed and drink a soda (Diet Mtn Dew.) In the winter I would have coffee loaded with Splenda. I only drank the coffee for the warmth. Until yesterday I drank at least 4 diet sodas a day. Well, not anymore. I'm apprehensive about the withdrawal. So water. I don’t like it but I don’t like being ill. And I gave my word. So water it is.
Last night I swayed my feet at the end of my bed and read recipes and nutritional facts. I will do this. I gave my word. But I need two things to make this enjoyable: weight loss and knowledge. I love to learn.
I’ve made an appointment with my primary care doctor for Thursday. I’ll get my numbers from her.
