    really, rats, wonder if it is lower carb though, or if the carbs come from the electrolytes? too late now, I have already made my mix-gatorade/miralax- given that I suspect sugar is the least of my worries. Nope, today will not be a fun day. To add insult to injury-DH is flying over to have lunch with DD today! At least DS and I don't have to go to rifle today.

    Yes, and I can tell you I had way more than 10 mac nuts before I started to weigh in again! Yesterday, I actually measured the pistachios. I don't allow macs in the house anymore, because I can seriously eat a pound in one evening.

    so here is something interesting...my weight at the doctor's office was 269.1 that is one tenth lower than when I weighed this morning. This morning I had on a t-shirt at the doctor's office I had on a pair of jeans, etc. This is the kind of thing that makes me obsessive about the scale. I will not let myself get on it again today.

    everything went fine btw.

    p.s. so I just checked my blood work. I expect she is going to come back at me about my Cholesterol which is 254, with a calculated LDL of 174. However...my hdl/cholesterol ratio is fantastic at .27, where .24 and higher is considered ideal. And my triglyceride/HDL ratio is even better at .78 where a 2 or less is considered ideal.

    My FBGlucose was 97, so higher than I thought it would be. I will start testing that when I start doing the blood monitoring.

    No nuts for me. I will put the coconut bars in the freezer for DD when she comes home.

    Today is just my regular annual doc visit. Oh and the prep I am a little worried about the excess carbs, and just feeling like crap from them. I wonder what people who have diabetes do, maybe there is a diet version of gatorade? At least it is only once every 2 years now.

    Tomorrow is the actual colonoscopy. Good thing about those is that you generally get instant results. My doc will even sometimes hand me photos of my intestines.
    I've had 2 colonoscopies and never used gatorade. I just had to drink this huge jug of stuff that was mixed with water. With second one I also had to take laxatives the the day before.

    Oh I have done every prep there is. This one is the easiest, but they are all unpleasant. It is 64oz of any flavor gatorade with 238g of miralax mixed in and drunk over a 2 hour period. Preceeded by 4 ducolax tablets. clear liquids the rest of the day.

    they will usually let you add in a crystal lite type of flavor packet as long as it isn't red or purple to that if you ask them. I have seriously had, with no exaggeration, at least 20 of them.

    Man these carbs made me shakey. Thank goodness i had made a gelatin with the kosher gelatin, and green tea, and stevia. I think that little bit of quality protein really helped. That and a nice cup of tea.

    I am home, and awake again, just a little shakey/achey. I suspect shakey is lack of energy input, but I am very slowly fixing that. Achey because I had a tetness (sp?) shot on Monday, and that is the arm I laid on during the procedure. There is also of course the biopsies they took, 10 of them. It all looks good, except for a tiny bit of colon that was slightly irritated. Ya think, after a cleansing there might be some irritation?

    Anyway, for anyone thinking of going the laxative route for weight loss, I lost 2 pounds. Totally empty and only 2 pounds-so not worth it!
