yes, i know weight fluctuates throughout the day. i step on the scale periodically to see if i'm at the "light time" of the day. lol i tried regular oats this morning with 1/2 diced gala apple, 1 c skim milk and 2 tsp sugar (i know i know...i need to buy some splenda at the store today). it didn't taste quite as good to me as the instant, or maybe it's just different and i have to get used to it. but i could eat twice as much for the same calories and carbs as the instant.
i ordered 2 books from amazon.com..."Diabetes Without Drugs: The 5-Step Program to Control Blood Sugar Naturally and Prevent Diabetes Complications" and "The New Glucose Revoltion for Diabetes: The Definitive Guide to Managing Diabetes and Prediabetes Using the Glycemic Index". I think they should be good. the first one got 4.5 stars and the one that frenchhen recommended got 4 stars. can't wait to get them!
