Seeing results

ok so after my woe is me post from yesterday I have to brag a little bit. I have a doctors appointment tomorrow with the weight doctor and next Wednesday with my primary care doctor, I had blood work ordered so I decided I would kill two birds with one stone and had it done this morning so both doctors could review it.

I am so excited to report that the morning of surgery my a1c was 8.5 (this is your blood sugar over a period of time) I was on two diabetic medicines, today I would like to report my a1c is 5.3 normal not any where near diabetic levels. A pre-diabetic is 6.0 to give you a guide. I am off all my meds still, can't wait to see the doctor to go over my blood work. This is the main reason, I had this surgery to help with my diabetes!!!! A long way to go but I can do this!!! I had a rough day today but I am ending it on a great note!!!!

3 month struggles

Ok so this past week has been tough for me... I have gained weight ugh.. How I am not sure because I have been going to ypthe gym walking, and even keeping to my calories but looking back I see a pattern starting.. Old habits come back real quick.. So I have been looking up recipes for low carb recipes, because I am going to do this! I have been feeling better than I have in a long time.

The plan for me to get back in the groove of loosing I am going to be making up my food ahead of time like I did at the beginning of my journey. I love the blog http://theworldaccordingtoeggface.blogspot.com I have been getting some wonderful recipes to try. For those who think weight loss surgery is easy you are so wrong!!! The head battle is real, I know I have said it before but this is tough!!! Family gatherings are tough because I want to eat like I did at my heaviest but in reality I really do not. I am going start keeping a cooler of goodies with me as the summer months are quickly approaching this way when I get really hungry I have something ready.mi am finding the 30-30-30 rule very difficult sometimes. ( stop drinking 30 minutes before you eat, eat for 30 minutes and don't drink for 30 minutes after you eat) I find sometimes I am starving by the time it is time to eat sometimes I am eating to quickly and over eating. I have to be mindful of what I am putting in my mouth. Another struggle I am finding is late night or right before bed hunger. I am getting in my protein I think it is more the mental struggle.

So it is back to the basics I have an appointment Wednesday with my doctor so I am going to discuss my recent struggles. And an update I have made it to the gym 2 days last week and walked 2 times so this is getting easier still not comfortable with the gym...
