Oh poor me

Published by Resurgam in the blog Resurgam's blog. Views: 344

I have been trying to eat things which I would not normally include in my low carb diet for weightloss but I have seen other people eating and not getting elevated BG readings.

Sulk sulk sulk sulk

So far, nothing at all is different - if I could not eat it when losing weight I can't eat it without a big increase - so I went to the shops and bought a cucumber and some mushrooms, and some metal bowls. Not that I really need more bowls, but Lidl have got them, so they don't cost much and they have lids, so I can use them to hold nuts and anything chopped or sliced. I needed to go to Lidl for cough mixture, as I have a nasty cough after catching a cold. Even the cough mixture registers on the meter. Sigh.
At least I feel better after stopping the statin. The ringing in my ears was really dreadful, and I was trying to learn the tune of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah. One thing I have always been able to do is pick up a tune after hearing it a few times, or even just once, but I was absolutely stumped - I still keep losing it and then it comes back - or I try listening to it again. Even my husband has noticed that I keep playing it over and over, and he was getting a bit worried and annoyed that I could not remember things.
