Love it jjraak
I am not sure how I feel about it all yet maybe never will. I do think circumstances have a bearing, neither of us have jobs outside the house. I would have found this woe very difficult when I worked. I have always wanted to cook/eat food I really enjoyed, as it is I am mostly trying to adapt the evening meal to suit me. Occasionally we eat completely different meals and that somehow makes me sad.
I agree the FBG and HBA1c are valuable and it is very individual. Lets just do our best to keep it going.
6.5 this partly-cloudy Saturday morning. I had a lovely lie-in because the KittenCat got herself up, got her own breakfast, and settled herself up on the back of the sofa, where she was when I opened my eyes.
Probs best to end here and not hijack the thread. Not sure why I would ever expect something to live up to the publicity/advertising - very few things ever do. We very rarely eat the same meal or at the same time - that is very similar to when we worked. Take care.
Two tests diverged on a Saturday,
one 6.4, one 6.5,
and sorry that it wasn't a tie
(altho' it certainly was a "draw"),
I'm also happy mine wasn't high
for me. To me, you're doing OK,
although -- to me -- the bathroom floor
is far too cold to be standing on
for the pricking of my thumb
(err -- finger), so let me suggest
the best place for FBG tests
is warm in bed before one is up
in numbers or as in out of bed
[great line for this space] but instead
let me finish this before I'm lost
in rhyme with Shakespeare and with Frost.
The test less taken eh? Prefer Good-bye and keep cold myself.
I have learned that the best things are the things that don't get advertised or publicized. I mean as to brands, but now that I've just typed that, I realize that among the things are love and kindness and joy and living. (I've just come off a poetry run so I'm trying to be prosaic now ...)
I see TV ads all the time for cell phone providers that don't have a deal as good as the one for which I pay less than theirs. I see ads for laptops and tablets that don't work any better than my two. And I never see guitars advertised, and mine is nearly 50 years old and still going strong.
Whether that's a good thing may depend, as far as I can understand, on whether your primary problem is insulin insufficiency or insulin resistance. Do you know? In my case, I am very under-weight and have to make a real effort not to lose more. Taking the maximum dose of Glucophage and cutting my carbs to the bone have not brought my bgs down as much as might be expected. This makes me think my primary problem is insulin insufficiency, so I could do with a bit more of the stuff!
how well that you do some weights anyway ... so fine
Quote for today
Late on parade today
Dreamin' of my Chevy and my new blue jeans ... and my old riding boots, which I tried on today for the first time in 6 years to see how they looked with my new jeans that just arrived today. I ordered 2 sizes smaller than I'd been wearing and ... they fit! In fact there's room to spare. They are serious jeans -- good heavy denim, 5 pockets, orange stitching, copper fittings, the works. And they're smaller than my last pair!
I always preferred riding "English" but then age and injuries and anxiety all kicked in together and I got more comfortable in a western saddle because the stirrups and wider leathers gave me more foot and leg support.
These jeans have really helped encourage me to stick with low-carb eating and exercise so I'm posting the boots for y'all who help encourage me too.
Hi Saskia, so sorry I disappeared from our correspondence. Things in my life have been difficult for a long time now and I have just not been contacting anyone at all. Lack of energy, lack of morale. I'm so pleased to read about your success and see the symbols of it.
I kept thinking someone had quoted that line in a Midsomer Murders episode but now I've just thought it's quoted in an Inspector Jury novel instead.
Your turn to write the poetry, BTW.
Hope you are OK A100. I remember when I first joined this forum you were welcoming, helpful, supportive and a little bit edgy and challenging (I liked that). I hope the forum can help you with your current challenges - please let us know if we can. Or just rant if you like. We’re listening.
Fantastic news about the new jeans and their motivational impact. Go you
It's a wonderful feeling when you find you fit in smaller sizes. Congratulations!
Thank you, @Alexandra100. I'm glad to hear from you. I've missed you!
I'm very sorry things have been difficult for you. It's good to see you back on (the) board.
I rarely contact anyone offline anymore, it takes less energy for me to log on and read what everyone posts, and I don't have to be "up" or dressed or "on."
Oops -- in case @jjraak is reading this, I know I (and others) were begged to not post anymore in our pajamas but right now I'm properly dressed in a T-shirt and sweatpants (new but already loose) so for today I'm all correct and presentable even if not in breeches and tall boots and a white shirt with stock tie.
Hugs, @Alexandra100 and purrs. ^. .^
Thanks, @Chronicle_Cat . Low five!
Goodnight everyone sleep well
