    Good Morning everyone!!!!!!! I've felt so good for the past few days not only physically but emotionally as well. I think God is really doing a healing as I have been trying to focus on Him. Thank you Jesus! I've really been focusing on being thankful. You can't be grumpy when you are thankful. I've just been smiling and not letting things that normally get to me effect me and it feels good.

    I weighed myself for some reason this morning and I was down another pound. Yay! My new meds are effecting me in a weird way. I don't really have an appetite and other things that are not lady like to talk about. I'm discouraged that my glucose has not dropped. It was 208 this morning.........I guess I was wrong about the chocolate! Darn! hahaha I guess I just need to be patient and let things flow because I am making the right choices. I do feel laid back about this whole process. By that I mean I'm not stressing about when and how much I lose or I don't freak out about everything I eat. No offense to those of you who do all the math and food break down stuff but I would go completely crazy if I had to think about macros etc. I want things to just flow naturally and so far that has worked for me.

    Well this has been an interesting journey. I'm so excited that I'm only 4 lbs from the 170's. I haven't seen that in 19 years!

    Have a wonderfully blessed day!!!!!!!

    Teri, lovely that things are inching in the right direction. Just a thought I had - try to keep your protein portions smallish as the excess will become sugar in your system. If you are not doing a lot of exercise your needs are a bit lower. Just trying to think why your bloodsugar is still sitting at that level. I am not diabetic but my mom is and she was a having a lot of success controlling her bloodsugar with restricting her protein portions. Of course she still ate grains etc so is not getting off her meds. Just hang in there and keep trying to figure out what YOUR body needs and how it needs it. A big part of this journey is learning to listen to your own body and that is an ongoing process. I am still on that journey over a year later, but I am much better than I used to be. I am so glad that you are feeling more stable emotionally. That is a big deal - most of my overeating is emotionally fired. The Lord Jesus is so faithful to walk us through all the challenges we face and there is always hope. I pray that you can figure out what is keeping your blood sugar levels raised. Sleep is a huge factor too - I am a different person when I get enough sleep. It helps our bodies heal and with diabetes you need that even more. Have a wonderful day!!!

    Well everything has been level for a bit. Here comes a new challenge, the Holidays. I think I will be okay. I've been slipping and sliding along. It may be a bit of a struggle but I think I will do okay. I feel pretty set in my new lifestyle that nothing is going to send me off into a downward direction. There are lots of good stuff like turkey, green beans and I will probably take a taste of stuffing and potatoes if I feel like I have to have it. My health is not going to be undone on one day's taste of something. I will probably have a small small piece of pumpkin pie. I know it will be fine.

    I wish everyone a very happy happy Thanksgiving. I am so thankful for so many things!!!!

    Head hung.....sheesh......Primal Thanksgiving....EPIC FAIL!! I don't know what to say really. It started off okay but then things just fell apart. I had a 5 day binge. Pizza, candy, cookies, brownies, pies, fried sea food, french fries, Pepsi, I can't remember it all. No sleep. Stress!!! I feel miserable today. I am bloated. My head is spinning. I got on the scales and I gained 10 pounds!!!!! in 5 days. SMH I can't believe I did it. There is a bible verse that says lest we think we stand firm, we fall. SMH

    Well there is nothing I can do about the past 5 days. I need to move forward. Get back to my routine. I called and change my stress test appointment because how I feel now is not a good thing. I fall down and I just pick myself up and move on albeit I fell in a deep mud hole! haha Still I have today and tomorrow..... Again there is no timeline and I'm still on a learning curve. I know better than to do that again. I have to problem solve that for next year. Christmas will be easier, staying here.

    I really can't believe how bad I feel. So today I'm starting what I hear people call a detox. I'm going to walk, eat 100% primal for the next 30 days. Yes I can do it. Oh you know what surprised me is my glucose didn't change. Weird. I thought it would be 300 this morning.

    I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. I did get to see family and we shared our memories of my mom and gramma that have gone on to be with the Lord. It was good. Lots of laughs. I am thankful for so many things!

    Have a great day!

    Slip ups happen, don't let it get you down too much.
    Best of luck with your whole 30.
