Morning sugar reading was 118


Saw endocrinologist yesterday and he upped my insulin and I joined a 50 carbs or less group on Facebook.

I asked about getting off of insulin and he flat out told me I had to lose a lot of weight. I wasn’t insulted by it because it is true and I have come to terms with my weight. Maybe the low carb diet will help like before. Doing great til I quit, but this time there is no quitting. I am in it for my life. I want to live.

Tomorrow is my first silver sneakers class. I am so out of shape just walking a few feet takes my breath away. This class is for seniors and done on a chair. Sounds like what I need to get started.

I am happy, content, wealthy in ways other than just money.

Diabetes: Insulin ranges still unknown


I think the only one is the slow acting insulin that can be totally regulated. I think the one for each meal will have to be done and the necessary insulin injected, but what do I know?

My poor belly is getting so bruised from all the shots. I am trying to figure out how to use a different area each time so it isn’t as painful.
