Darcy Happy belated Birthday!!! Hope you had a great one. I agree about the exercise after eating. I usually do some form of exercise after eating and always do my 3 mile stationary bicycle riding after my main meal on days that I ride. I read that in a book titled Reversing Diabetes. I'm contemplating the smaller meals throughout the day too. I'm convinced of late that overeating causes fbs to be higher.
Carol Sue So true about normal eaters. I always remember ry little Joel that I kept when I had child care in my home yrs ago. If he ate good for me, he wouldn't eat good for his Mama that night and if he didn't eat good for me that day, he ate great for his Mama. His Mama and I learned that Joel knew when he was hungry and when he wasn't and he would not eat unless he was hungry. When I got into IE, I also remembered a little baby girl that cried all the time. Her Mama and I thought she was hungry and would feed her. Finally I told her Mama, I think you need to take her to the doctor. We had her on a good feeding schedule, but because there was no apparent reason for her crying and feeding her would temporarily satisfy her, we fed her. The doctor said that we were over feeding her. So we had to feed her on a schedule so she could learn the difference in hunger and full. Strange isn't it. Now we have to learn that again as adults.
Ruth 1 lbs lost is a lb lost. Saw your's and Carol Sue's pics and you both are nice looking ladies. I've had to have to bridges put in place. I haven't had implants although my dentist would love to do them. I just don't have the $$$$$$$$$ to do it. However, I have found that when I do a really "good" low carb eating that my gums and teeth improve.
Mad So good to see things working for you again and always good to hear from you.
Rennie YAY!!! For hitting your all time low and weight at 165 this mornin and FBS of 114. You obviously have found what works for you. I've also gone over to the Atkin's food porn thread to find some new ways to eat low carb. My Daddy is drinking the ACV water too. He makes up an 8 oz glass of water with it and puts it in the fridge and just goes and gets a glass of it and sips on it while watching tv, on pc etc. So I decided to do the same thing. I think that is a way to get the fbs to come down as well as the weight. I decided to do that because I don't always want a salad that I can use it in. This also saves calories because oil in my salad adds about 120 calories per Tablespoon.
I'm hitting the protein today. I do eat some carbs, but not a lot. I've thought about going on Atkin's Inductions just for a few days mainly because I kind of overdid the starchy carb foods the past few days. No eating out for at least the next 4 days so may do it at least for those 4 days. Now that I have my routine figured out and I know what to do when I get off plan for a few days, AI makes it so easy to get back OP.
Have a super Sunday evening.
DETERMINATION keeps me going when the going gets tough.
I can believe that "I can" or I can believe that "I can't," and either way I will be right.
I choose to believe I CAN!!!
