Week 10: -4, Total 19

Woohoo! I'm back in action. After my potato chip incident, last Sunday, I was kind of hungry for the next few days. But I stuck with it and am much less hungry now.

I've had a bad cold, so that probably helped me not eat. I haven't had many colds in the last several years. Maybe it was punishment for eating the potato chips.

Some of the things I ate last week: fajita skillets (just the chicken, peppers and onions with some cheese), tuna salad with cucumber and mache (lambs lettuce), grass-fed rib steak, cod and bok choy soup. I also made some low carb cheese cake, but just had small amounts.

My blood sugar was 127 this morning and was 116 yesterday. Maybe my cold or lack of exercise is why it is so high?

I hate colds, hope you are feeling better! Way to go Joyce. You are doing well. I think the key is to keep your body satisfied, as I tried to not eat alot on the weekend and it didn't help. If your hungry eat, if your not hungry, don't eat. I think we need to tune in and listen to what are bodies are saying!!! Keep up the great work

My two daughters are type 1 and type 2 diabetics respectively, and I know when they don't feel well, their blood sugars fluctuate a bit more than usual, so I wouldn't sweat it too much.

Potato chips notwithstanding, you're doing great!
