ny_shelly's Journal, 24 April 2018

Went to the doctor today. My A1C dropped from 11.2 to 6.5 which is good. I did it mostly with diet but I still need small amounts of insulin and a pill 2x a day. I know I have to do more consistent fasting if I want to get off of these meds.

Unfortunately, high blood pressure runs in my family and I had to add a blood pressure med. I am hoping if I keep losing weight I won't have to be on those meds but I am so far from that it's really not worth thinking about.

Next time I want to binge eat I am going to think about the choice. Do I want to be 289 or do I want to binge eat?

Other choices: ask for help on FS, call someone, take a walk, journal, mindful meditation

My good choice for today: Was still hungry after breakfast so I stopped and got a berry basket - blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries. Just ate some until I was full. These are all good choices b/c they do not spike your blood sugar.

The temporary discomfort (of making good choices) will beat a lifetime of unhappiness (from being overweight). You got this!

Excellent choice! LOL you could even add some plain grrek yogurt to those berries to carry the protein and fat out and extend your satiaty with the meal. That’s what smoothies with berries will do for you. By putting ice in them and or almond milk or flavored teas you up your hydration levels and have a blended almost shake drink if you mix it thick enough in your blender. 🤷🏻‍♀️Add a bit of no sugar vanilla extract ( real or alot! LOL) and it’s nummy! Summer’s coming!

Good news and good choice today. Remember it ALWAYS comes down to that.. a choice.. do the thing that will help stretch out the time to enjoy life.. or do the thing that may cut that time short. You have made a huge number of good choices.. keep it up!
