My Blood Sugar Experiment

So, I was thinking…why am I always craving carbs and sugar? So I got the impulse to buy a glucose monitor. My 12 hr fasting blood sugar was 72 and my after meal number was 89. Of course, this is just one day but I think it is safe to say I don’t have a blood sugar regulation problem. I will monitor a few more times this week, but I won’t bother taking any more blood sugar formulas. I actually expected it to be lower, I am always reading about people with reactive hypoglycemia. So, for now I will blame either serotonin or candida. I can scan myself with my biofeedback machine and check both, but considering my face broke out into some kind of strange rash the last few days, I’m going to take Kyolic 102 and 103 as a precaution for candida overgrowth. Formula 102 is considered the Candida formula it contains ginger along with a big dose of garlic, but Formula 103 also has oregano, olive leaf, and some mushrooms, so I will take that one too. Health is kind of like finances, it is always something.

Here we go AGAIN

On HCG again. I am determined to get this 10-15 lbs off that keeping from single digit clothes. I am starving but I don’t care. I give people advice on HCG all the time and it’s about time I follow it myself. Day 1 down, 20 more to go.

I am what I eat

If I eat like a pig, I will look like a pig. I did well two days this week.1100 calories on Tuesday and 1400 calories on Tuesday, then the wheels came off again.[sigh]

More and more depressed by the day. Will brush off and start over tomorrow. One day at a time. My name is Kim and I am a sugar junkie.

The ongoing cycle

Yesterday’s Weigh-In: 169.5 lbs.

I should have been disappointed, but honestly I was elated. After all of the food I have been eating the past three weeks, I am lucky I haven’t crept back to the 170s, frankly I was expecting it. Unfortunately, I cannot blame the 4 lbs on water weight. I weighed in at Curves today and my body fat % has increased 1.2%. YIKES! All of my measurements have increased. All of my clothes have been snugger, I knew things haven’t been going well. Guess this was a good kick in the pants. If anyone ever asks what my talent is, I will answer “gaining weight”.

I went to Publix tonight and bought some frozen vegetables and some fish. I bought a huge bag of frozen chicken breasts Tuesday night in anticipation of a bad weigh in this week. Back to chicken, fish, and vegetables. I am currently shopping for some discipline on Ebay and Craigslist, because I clearly need some. In the event I don’t find any for sale, I’ll just have to weigh myself every morning as motivation. I would like to see the 150s before Thanksgiving. That’s my goal. Maybe I could wear my size 8 Old Navy Jeans that won’t zip now…that would be nice.

Sugar is Evil

Today I “accidentally” ate an entire box of Lucy’s Sugar Cookies. I then immediately wanted more sugar so I decided I had to have an Udi’s blueberry muffin. And by noon, I had already eaten 152 grams of carbs. Yikes! Way to start off October. I hate sugar. Who found this addictive white stuff anyway? I would like to sue you for millions of dollars. But I will settle for a 20 pound weight loss 🙂

This month’s theme: Kim, step away from the sweets…far, far away.
