Day 2: Water Water Everywhere

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.
