My muscles still say owee…

I am still in a lot of pain from the classes. Simple as they are, I am just so out of shape I am in terrible pain.

There are 2 teachers and they both are different in style. One is harder than the other. I think I aggravated my Fibromyalgia as well.

I have lost 2.8 lbs since starting to eat low carb. I am not following the ADA (American Diabetic Association) diet and eating very low carb as most diabetics have found to work better than the high carb diet recommended by the ADA. I have definitely lost inches, moreso than pounds.

The dietician I talked to today has refused to help me because I refuse to follow the ADA diet and eat lots of milk, yogurt, fruit (is she nuts) other than berries, grains and some other things. The ADA diet is actually dangerous to diabetics who need to cut down on the carbs, not increase them. I have found a support group or 2 to help with this low carb diet. There are several drs who support the concept as well. Mine seems fine with it.

I am hungry. I think I will fry some eggs and sausage. No carbs, no shot of insulin needed. I will just take my long acting insulin tonight instead of 2 needles.
