WTG Kim!!!! I love my steak rare too. I would have had a dirty Tanqueray martini on the rocks with three olives instead of the maggie. Too much sugar but the rest of your order is exactly what I would have had.
I had a Wienerschnitzel Polish sandwich and a small order of fries for dinner and one beer. It was yummy. I fell asleep and didn't take any meds and surprise, surprise my blood sugar was good when I got up this morning.
So far today I've had two apples and three pieces of cheese. And coffee of course. It's about time for a nap. My eyes flew open before six this morning. Crazy, especially on a day I could sleep in. I have no idea what else I'm going to eat today. A grilled chicken salad is sounding really good.
I'm having my usual for this week. Fat free Greek yogurts, two apples, snap peas and a few pieces of cheese. There was a free banana in the kitchen so I took it. I'm also having coffee.
Kim the tacos sound good. I love fish or shrimp tacos. I don't know what I'm going to have for dinner. Probably a salad. That's what sounds good to me right now anyway. And my two beers for dessert...lol.
Hopefully the 'boys' will see the light when they start feeling better.
After a little while my stomach finally got the message...lol. then about four o'clock I tested my blood sugar and it was 85, too low to get me home so I had a serving of almonds and a can of V8. I made it without falling out...lol.
It's interesting in that I'm taking less than half of the diabetic meds than I was taking just a few months ago. It's like my body hit some kind of wall or something. Weird. I'm happy and excited about it and so is my doctor. Maybe I finally figured out the right combination of foods. Whatever I'm doing is working.
Kim I'm happy you're finally getting some cooperation from the menfolk. But, they can be so helpless if left to their own devices.
I'm having one of those starving days again. I'm so glad that I only have healthy foods here and work but even too much of a good thing is bad...lol. I've got the water going. The thing is I've eaten my daily allotment and it's only 2:00. I can have another apple or some almonds if I really need to. I've had about 900 calories so far so I really can't afford to eat much more. A can of spinach or green beans wouldn't add to many calories and would fill the hole....lol
Good morning. Kali you're learning that protein stays with you longer than all those carbs. If I eat too many carbs all I want to do is sleep. Part of that is because of diabetes.
I had a Mexican cobb salad for dinner last night and it was very tasty. I haven't had one for awhile and I'd kind of forgotten how good they are.
The other day when I was at the grocery store it was just about all I could do to resist getting a mango tea. I managed but barely.
My smaller pants are starting to get loose and the bigger ones are about to fall off. After payday I'm going to Wal-Mart and get a couple of pairs of size 1X. Even if they don't fit it will be incentive to continue losing.
Good afternoon all. How exciting that Amber is here again.
So far today I've had two Greek yogurts, an eight ounce bag of snap peas, less than 100 calories per bag and I just started on my third apple and a can of V8. My blood sugar was 86 and it's two hours before I leave for home. If I didn't have something I'd fall out. Diabetes can be tricky sometimes. It seems I'm having to figure everything out all over again.
I'm feeling like having a salad from Pollo Loco tonight. I hope they're not crowded. I could go for some Pho too. Who knows I could completely change my mind by the time I get close to home...lol.
Amber it's wonderful to see you! I hope you and your family are doing well. I've been losing weight slowly and little by little for years. I've been more focused in the last year or so. I'm pretty sure I'll be able to keep it off this time.
Hello everyone. Kim your dinner sounds yummy. I'll probably have a chicken salad sandwich from the grocery store since I'll be there getting a couple of prescriptions.
Did you know that fat free cottage cheese has two more carbs per serving than the low fat and only ten less calories? Being a diabetic I'm kind of more concerned with carbs than calories especially since in this case the calories are from fat.
Anyway I'm having two apples, snap peas and two cups of cottage cheese for all day at work. I might have some almonds and a V8 later. It depends on my blood sugar.
Hopefully this physical therapy will help with my leg numbness and I'll be able to start walking a bit for exercise. Keeping my fingers crossed.
Cute quip Kim about roundness. I wish my rounded belly would go away but that's just my shape at this stage of my life. Come on lottery so I can get a body lift...lol. You'd think I drank beer 24/7 from the looks of it.
