In the Past Week I’ve Dropped Five Pounds

When I started this blog, I weighed 189 lbs. Last week I weighed 186 lbs. Two days ago I weighed 181 lbs!!! This morning I weighed 183 lbs. So I’ve lost 3-5 lbs in about five days. I haven’t measured my waist, but I can tell it’s down too. Woo hoo!

Part of that is because I’ve had a head cold, and I’ve been drinking about 120 oz of water a day. My motivation though was that the doctor gave me a month to control my blood sugar by diet and exercise before he puts me on insulin. So I started The 30-Day Diabetes Cure by cutting out sugar and flours. But then I had a couple of green apples and a couple of slices of sprouted whole-grain bread and one tiny sliver of a cream cheese brownie. And popcorn. I gained two pounds in two days, doing that!

This morning I had an egg and some carrot sticks for breakfast. That’s what sounded good. It tasted good, too. I’m learning that I don’t have to eat very much at one time.

About tiredofbeingoldandtired

I'm a fifty-something woman, with half a dozen grown children, who plans to prove once and for all (I hope) that I can get healthy in every way by eating real food, exercising gently, finding a satisfying purpose, and reducing stress, without starving or torturing myself. I'll keep you posted.
