Today my readings have come down to 196,so doing much better,all 3 reading today were around that mark.I have stuck to the 1200 calorie diet and cut out carbs like bread and potatoes as well as all sweet foods,cake,chocolate,ice creme,anything with sugar and white flour.I am eating healthy foods and my body feels much better for it.

Marylin great job!! 😊
My wife is trying a new setting on her gastric pacemaker. First 3 days she felt absolutely miserable, but hopefully there is improvement to come. I'm glad the snow has eased up as we have to drive to the next city over for her eye surgery on Tues. Hopefully that goes smoothly.
Keep up the great work everyone!

I went to see the diabetic nurse yesterday.She was pleased,my blood sugar levels have come down from the 360's to around 180.I also lost 15 pounds in weight,so I and the nurse were really pleased.So the blood sugar levels should come down even more as I lose weight,I am on the right track,so I got to stick with the program.It is so satisfying to see the numbers for both the scales and the blood sugar readings come down.

That is great, marylin! My scale is also down a bit, down the next five or so, not a decade yet. It's fluctuating down. My scale doesnt usually fluctuate "down", IYKWIM. My sugar is staying around 180, plus or minus 10.

I ordered pizza the other day, but with "thin and crispy" crust, and NO pepperoni. The calorie count was like one fourth for 270. I used to have a rule that, i could only eat something if i could do the total calorie calculation in my head!

I am trying to stick to 1200 calories also. I am still fridgeless. I am now also breadless. I am feeling much better, and i think im looking a LITTLE less round.

I think this thread is really helping me. I finally found something im sticking to, knock on wood.
