I've just started stage 3 and have been happy with my progress, especially as far as my calorie intake has been and my food choices, for the most part. I've put the "diet" out of the picture and have been totally good with the idea that this is a lifestyle change instead of a "diet". With that being said, I had a relatively healthy dinner last evening other than the bacon. I had a three egg omelet with green onion kinda like a garnish along with some bacon and cheese. I did also log my english muffin.
This morning, I woke up and tested my blood sugar and my FBS was 92. Rather unbelievable if you ask me. Not so low as to worry about it getting too low and not high either, right in the range that I should be. I delayed my breakfast and morning medicines until around 9:00 am and took my med's as perscribed and had three servings of grits. Carb wise, I probably was at my upper limit for the meal but figured that I was fine anyway.
After breakfast, I took our three dogs to the dog park for over an hour. I got in some good walking while I was there too. After the visit at the dog park, I took the three musketeers to the dog wash. About 2 1/2 hours had passed since my breakfast and meds and I very seldom talk my glucose tester with me (maybe I should). Anyway, I had to break a $20.00 dollar bill for the dog wash and did so at McDonalds. I got two quarter pounders with cheese, washed the dogs and got home and tested my blood sugar again, since I STILL felt like I had low blood sugar. Any guesses what it was within 30 minutes of eating my two Quarter Pounders?
I only ate them because I felt hungry and needed to have smaller bills available. I cannot imagine what blood sugar readings I might have had, if I hadn't eaten when I did.
My poor endocrinologist will certainly be hearing from me MONDAY morning. This is making me lean towards the gastric bypass surgery even more so.
I'm getting tired of eating just to raise my blood sugar. I love this program but somebody has to figure something out, and that is MY DOCTORS.
Hope ya'll have a great rest of the weekend.
