Knowing what a particular food will do to one's metabolism is powerful. Eventually the numbers on the glucometer connect to feelings. Now I know that rather vague elevated blood sugar sense and can tell when it's dropping again. All good things.... Read more

It's amazing to be at a normal BMI and still deliberately losing following a glycemic load diet. My A1c is now 5.5! That's normal! Still, I can't indulge my sweet tooth to any real degree without my BS rising to unacceptable levels. So, here I... Read more

A1c only down to 6! Doc started me on metformin, at my request. Will check again in 4 months. She is proud of my weight loss and exercising-am getting so much stronger, and down almost 19 so far this year-the bulk after going back paleo in July ... Read more

last week my chiropractor sent me into the new balance store to see about a knee brace. The store clerk took one look at me and my shoes and told me that I was in the wrong shoe and that my knee pain was probably secondary to the shoes. He put m... Read more

This is a handy little toy. It cheers me on during the day-like,"Give me 146 more steps!" Plus I've gone over the 10k steps per day. Down a couple more pounds, but that is in keeping with acting with willingness. Cheers for today to all!!!!... Read more
