wow well done
thanks penguinmum all good now x
Good morning campers. Wishing you all good fortunes with your testing today. I’m sure there will be as many frowns as there will be elated smiles. Tick tock...eyes gazing down in trepidation at the countdown to “beep”. We all know that feeling, and I hope a smile awaits most of us at the end of that agonising 5-10 second wait
Miserable day but the sun is shining above the clouds. Have a great weekend everyone!
Woke up on a 10.5 this morning which is the lowest I’ve been since I got diagnosed in the mornings. Perhaps the increased insulin is beginning to work - lets hope so....
(I know this is still way too high but got to be happy for some progress!)
Just watched the video and @shelley262 gave a clear and articulate outline of the benefits to her of LCHF. There are other members who are also very strong advocates and have made amazing progress.
Some of us do not/will not see such great results but nonetheless have a basic level of management. The aim of this post is twofold. Firstly, to congratulate/support the strong advocates of this WOE. Secondly, to support those who, like me, have some doubts and limited success. Some may not ever feel quite so comfortable with this WOE or recognise all those positive feelings but that is OK. There are still real benefits and we are all different. We won't all have those kind of results or wholly positive feelings but LC will benefit us all - just to different degrees and with varying pleasure. Us JAMs need a JAMspirtional stories section
so well done how wonderful for you ..
6.2 at 9:30
Progress it is. Keep at it, you will be in single figures in no time. Been there, know how depressing those higher readings can be.
7.1 this morning. Had a bit of a workout with some weights last night on my 'sofa gym'! Hard doing any exercise that gets me puffed because I have cardiomyopathy, but seated low weights high reps with hand weights and ankle weights seem to give me a bit of a workout without leaving me puffing and uncomfortable. Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend. Off out to pick up my insulin now!
Sofa gym sounds perfect. We aren't all Joe Wicks. Probably should have called this JAMuary
good morning all
Very well done @Chronicle_Cat it's a great feeling isn't it? but the reactions can be unexpected
Mum found her old camera the other day and there were some photos of mr. gee and I on it. It had somewhat faded from my mind how much I have changed and just how big I used to be before I was diagnosed. Perhaps I should do a new avatar pic too?
It's pretty windy today here but we shall have to go out and do some shopping for the weekend so perhaps a walk later
Hope your day is treating you kindly
It has to be said I do sit on a dining chair for the leg work. But I keep the weights under the lid of the footstool of the sofa.....so I suppose that qualifies it as 'sofa gym'
JAM is my middle name sometimes!
afternoon lovely people
Nice little lie in this morning.
scores were 5.3.
4 day in a row i've woken up in hawaii land,

liking the 'can do' mentality @Providence 62
and @shelley262 @Debandez @bulkbiker ...great work on the video/interviews...Loved the honesty and my god,

And welcome @Sandra19440
Congrats to all who turned in an acceptable score for themselves today, long may it continue.
and @rhubarb73 am also liking the poetry,
and you've inspired me, with a little bit of gallows humour
the doctor said, you should be dead
your not.. so go on living
eat bread and jam, and skip the ham
that meat is not forgiving
Your type 2, here's what to do
take all the pills i'm giving
eat what you like forget the spike
ignore advice others keep on giving
it's bad advice, so just play nice,
and do as i've been saying
can't fund the golf, or buy new cars
if patients don't keep paying.
You must buy the meds until your dead
these words don't bring me joy
but think less of you and more of me
and those that we employ,
the pharma guys and all those boffins
need you to keep on taking,
the pills and meds until your dead
and resting in that coffin.
and as there was no dance video today..
how about a little Musical theatre, while you read the posts...?
Good morning everyone,
4.9 for me.
Overslept, then lay in, then almighty panic sets in, pills to take etc.
A perfect 8.9 for me on the meter.
Jobs set by Mrs J to complete.
Have a great day folks. My mates chaos and mayhem are popping round this afternoon.
Tip. It's not a good idea to hire traffic warden costumes, then go round the local bus depot writing false parking tickets.......
@ianpspurs I think I am a JAM ....theres no irony in choosing something forbidden to us!! I’m starting to think FBG and HBA1c are not as important as I first thought. Its what happens around food. For example I could have a nasty spike after lunch most days but it might not affect either test. I am commited to this woe but all is not what it seems despite application. Do you agree?
@PenguinMum I think the FBG and HBA1C have their place in that they have "currency". A more pithy post than my first one may have said my own, and I suspect many other people's, "lived experience" of this WOE is a long way from that one. People should not be surprised or dismayed if their own experience differs somewhat from that video. It is something I definitely have to tolerate in the main. This WOE is like exercise really IMHO. Some enjoy it and thrive, others just do it knowing it is for the best. Are we on the same page?
