I just arrived back from a trip to North Carolina where I helped my “ladyfriend,” S, to celebrate her 50th birthday. We had a very good time. We celebrated with her Son and his wife and their two kids on Thursday and Friday. It wasn’t a party per se. We just hung out, played some games, and watched some TV and enjoy being together. Then, S and I went to visit her mother at Beech Mountain, NC.
I let my blood glucose get away from me for a couple of days. I didn’t get it back to normal until this morning. It took some fasting, of course. And it took some exercise. S’s mom and dad took us on a couple of good hikes. I couldn’t go far because of my pain issues, but, I got some good exercise to help burn off that excess glucose.
I learned how important it is to watch what I eat, and, that it doesn’t take much to get the things out of whack. I also learned that there are certain foods I may have to give up for good. Pizza may be one fo those. It hurts me to even think such a thing. Of course, sugary foods are out, except for a few holiday occasions, and even then, limited to almost nothing. I have just accepted that sugar is just poison to the body.
I am back home now, in South Carolina, to face Dorian! Bring it, Bitch! Pray for us here.
I am still losing weight. Before I left for North Carolina I was down to 229 lbs. That’s the lowest since I began trying to lose weight in 2015 with a starting weight of 267 lbs. My goal weight is 165 – 175, 30-inch waist.
Intermittent fasting is working wonders. I will keep you informed.
