  1. Day 3

    Today I felt a bit shaky when I woke up and so tested my blood sugar levels. I was down to 3.4 so no wonder I didn't feel great. I had breakfast - Bacon, mushroom (I've got to use them up) and avocado but even after that I felt so lethargic that I could hardly keep my eyes open and certainly didn't want to move off the sofa. So, I had a Kiwi. I know that fruit is off the menu for P1 but I made sure I waited 2 hrs after breakfast to eat it. I also eat the skin to try to slow down the sugar absorption. ...

  2. Back Yet Again

    I'm like a bouncing ball, a great big bouncing ball and I always end up rolling back to Harcombe.

    It served me well once before, way back in May 2012 when I signed up for the first time, almost got me back on track three years ago when I rejoined and now, here I am heavier than ever. My get up and go has got up and gone and I want to start out again a fresher, brighter, slimmer version of the wonderful me I know I can be.

  3. Blood Sugar Monitor

    After a couple of stressful weeks at work and falling off the waggon (AGAIN!) I am more determined than ever to get back to it. Having said that, I'm easing into it as you will see from my menu choices.

    Yesterday I treated myself to a blood glucose monitor as I've never had any sort of test at the Drs. I'm glad to say that I haven't had to visit a doctor for more years than I can remember. I was slightly worried that, with all my choc, buscuits and cake as well as some weight gain ...

  4. 22May

    Another good day yesterday so getting back on track. Just thinking about when I will start making progress though, but will try to banish those thoughts.
    Next I have to tackle / come to terms with doing the right thing for me rather than bowing to social pressure , especially when people are ‘ doing things to please’/ trying to be helpful/ done out of love etc as I find these situations the most difficult. My upbringing was most definitely not about thinking of one’s own needs. They were ...

  5. The French Lieutenant's Woman

    After some time - years - of a paralysed combination of insight and the inability to act on it, I seem to be going along quite well. I am now in the 'action phase' and have stopped contemplating making changes and am chugging along with three meals a day.

    On a few occasions I have opened the fridge door and stared into it. A wistful longing stirs in me like the French Lieutenants woman at Lyme Regis! Just a fatter older version with no French Lieutenant. I stare for a while - not ...
