Hi Glen . . . Glad to see you found us.

Hi Annie . . . You too. Is there a lot of carb in bologna? I know it is high in salt and high in fat; but what has it got that has had such an impact on BGL?

I've been having a good day, all things considered, but I am a little ache-y in a lot of places. It's kind of damp and quite icy here.

Have a great moving and shaking kind of evening, gang. Hope everybody else finds us, too.

very high blood pressure... when the blood pressure goes up, so does the blood G.. I dont think there are carbs in balongna? And I swear that I believe that laughing raises my bgl and b/p ..why not everything else does
anyway onward and upward.. if its not one thing its another

Thanks . . . even after all these years as a Type II . . . I really did not know that high BP would mean high BG. Actually thought it was more likely to work the other way around.

One of the things I love about 3FC . . . always learning new and valuable info.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Blackeye peas and ham for dinner... we are going all out on the luck part this year: not to mention the salad greens for $$$ ! I need all the help I can get!

I did get on the evil metal monster this morning... Said 179. Considering that my all time low is 176, I don't feel too bad. I even jumped on it a second time to make sure it was right.

Anywho, it's the start of SP this week, I will let you all know how it goes.

Hugs,

Hey everyone! Happy New Year! I hope its a great one, and we all end it lighter than we started!

I am sick with some kind of intestinal flu and my bg numbers are the worst I have seen in six months. I have not taken any meds..so I just took a glimperide (Amaryl) in hopes it will bring it down some. I did eat some traditional foods...greens for greenbacks, rice for riches, peas for prosperity and ham for happiness...but just a bite or two of each. I had a can of chicken noodle soup and a good amount of pretzels. I hope I am back up to snuff tomorrow. I want to get the tree down, and clean up the house, but the way I feel right now makes me think it will not happen unless there is a vast improvement over night! (I hope I can sleep..I slept most of the day!)

Talk to you all later!

Good to see so many of you making it back . . . nowhere to go but down the long road to health and fitness, gang . . . together we can do it.

My but I have led a sheltered (or is that frozen) life, MONETand JOSIAN. Never heard of the happiness-ham / greenback-greens / prosperity-peas / rice-riches kind of New Year's dinner before. I love it . . . . . . this is definitely my day for learning new things.

I'm more a roast beef kind of girl, too JEANNE and Lamb is my very favourite for New Years. Suprisingly enough though, I did have ham for dinner tonight, but with tiny red potatoes, asparagus, and carrots . . . nothing traditional about it; just happened to be what I felt like.

Anyway, gang . . . it is time for this Nor-Easter to head to bed. See you all tomorrow . . . keep on moving and shaking.

Morning...the bug is still with me. I feel wretched, and my hubby had to go back to work today, so I am on my own.

One GOOD thing about having the flu...my weight is down 4 pounds since Sunday. I just hope it stays down. Those were four that appeared during the thyroid fiasco. I would dearly love it if they and their friends left permanently!

I ordered a new book off Amazon called the Fat Resistance Diet. I will let you all know what I think when it gets here and I have a chance to read it. It is supposed to optimize Leptin, so I am more curious about it. Leptin resistance is supposedly the real problem with many health problems, diabetes included. I read in another book if you are insulin resistant, you are also leptin resistant. They are just beginning to understand leptin so it an interesting subject.

Ok, gotta go crawl back in bed... later my friends!

Good Morning, buddies . . .

It is very mild and raining here today . . . got rid of the snow and ice (a good thing) . . . but plays havoc with the arthritis (a bad thing).

Overall, though, I'm in a happy place today . . . the "goodie-weight" has gone and I was back to my ticker-weight of 239.8 this morning . . . yippee . . . so glad my little theory actually proved out and it did go pretty quickly. Sure hope it works that way for all of you, too. Anyway, I've completely changed my ticker to reflect the new year, new effort on this long winding road to better health and fitness. I will now return to my regular WWI, however. This has been a one of a kind thing . . . sort of a special "getting rid of Christmas" week during which I was weighing myself everyday, just to see how long it would take.

MONET . . . So sorry to hear that you are still feeling so awful, but I do hope that weight loss hangs in there after the flu is gone. The new book sounds like a fascinating read . . . be sure to keep us posted.

Well, gang . . . must get off about my business. Keep things moving and shaking and here's a dose of to keep us all heading in the great downward direction. See you soon.

Good morning. Time to get back to real life! My BGL was up again to 6 something - probably had something to do with lasagna, bread and trifle yesterday - ya think?

Monet, I do hope that weightloss sticks and you get to feeling A-OK soon.

Meowee, we are mild here too with no snow. The snowdrops beside my walk are showing white and will probably bloom today! Very strange! By the way, I find that taking glucosamine really helps those damp weather aches and pains.

Today is a catching up and shifting gears day. Here's to a healthy 2007!

Right you are RUTH . . .

If it wasn't for the Glucosamine I take, I'm not sure I'd be walking at all . . . I also take Shark Cartilage and I've been out for a few days . . . thanks for the reminder.

And, yepper, that sounds like a pretty hefty dose of carb . . . this, too will pass.
