It’s been another week that I have been on this WOE (way of eating). I say that because I have to eat this way the rest of my life to keep my blood sugars under control.
This week includes January 20th through January 26th.
I am up 1 pound since the last weigh in, but I think it is because of the cheat day. It is proving to me that cheat days are not worth it. After I am able to go to my favorite fish restaurant, I am going to cut back on the cheat days (I had 4 in January). I am still down 10.6 pounds from where I started on January 1st. Hoping by the last day of the month I can at least lose the pound I gained from the cheat day.
In other news, I did find out my a1c finally. On January 9th it was 8.3 (down from 8.7 in September). That is still an average of around 215 which is way too high. I know my next test in April will be greatly improved.
Now…on to my numbers. (First number is the fasting blood sugar)
January 20th –
This was my cheat day….my numbers only spike on cheat day and a little the next day.
January 21st –
183, 178, 164, 105
(37 protein, 50 fat, 14 carbs, 1 fiber)
January 22nd –
152, 111, 81,
(64 protein, 101 fat, 21 carbs, 4 fiber)
January 23rd –
127, 148, 105, 97
(71 protein, 111 fat, 28 carbs, 5 fiber)
January 24th –
123, 107, 87, 102
(60 protein, 126 fat, 18 carbs, 4 fiber)
January 25th –
99, 99, 79, 76
(58 protein, 121 fat, 12 carbs)
January 26th –
115, 123, 70
(51 protein, 113 fat, 11 carbs, 1 fiber)
According to my app that I have been using to record my sugars since January 1st, my averages are…
The last week: 120
The last month: 117 (If my 3 month average was this my a1c would be 5.7%)
How do you all think I am doing? I try to eat around 1,350 calories….when I start working out I might up the calories a little.
Do any of you follow a low carb diet? It does not have to be a ketogenic diet necessarily, but how about just low carb?
