Dmartz: I like your goal for protein, since I only eat veggies, fruits, water and occasionally beans, my protein intake is really low. I would like to bring it up, but I do not know how.
Libby: I am glad you had a great week. It's great when our clothes fit differently or even too big.

"Thinking is easy, acting is difficult, and to put one's thoughts into action is the most difficult thing in the world."

I think Murphy and his dumb law have it out for me this week and even "Don't go overboard" was an ambitious goal. All the deadlines that were set for after I came back from vacation got moved to while I'm on vacation so that means they are really moved to this Friday. I'm running around like a nut and have fallen back on old habits of fueling deadlines with sugar and caffiene. I'm not quite overboard yet but I'm definately hanging over the side with my toes dangling in the water.
I hope whatever success I might have normally been granted has gone to one of you nice people.
Hey Jenn, I do have a CDE (certified diabetes educator) who is really good. However, at the end of the day, I'm the one in the trenches who has to deal with ups and downs and figure it out. I guess what I mean is, I'm could call, but there's not really anything she can say other than to do what I'm doing - just keep increasing the doses and try to keep the carbs down while I'm figure out my levels.
I think tomorrow I will do some basal testing, which will involve a lot of not eating.
Calories under 1100 per day: M-915 T-984 W-770

My niece is getting married on the 18th and I wanted to be in better shape by now. All I can do is work on it. I hope that every one had a great day.
