My new CML meds have not arrived as promised. They were supposed to have arrived on Tuesday but alas, not here yet. My oncologist called this morning to see if I had started taken them yet. He was not happy that they had not arrived. He said that he was going to find out where my meds are at and let me know.
I’ve attempted to start dieting again. It’s been a tough couple of days. I’m doing the low carb diet. I lost 60 lbs on it last time I was on it and I’ve still got that and many more to go. I’m trying to limit my carbs to 35 a day. Today and yesterday I have gone way over. Today was better than yesterday and I’m hoping that tomorrow will be even better. I want to get down to 255 by August 15th and I’m 276 now. I don’t think I”ll have a problem reaching it if I can gain the willpower to stick with it. In 2009, I weighed the most I’ve ever weighed. At 346, I came to the realization that I had to do something. Especially since my doctor told me that I wouldn’t see my kids graduate college if I didn’t do something.
The other reason I’m on the low carb diet is that of my sugar. My body can’t handle carbs. I can drink a cup of milk and my sugar will jump from 159 to over 250. I did well all day today until I got home. I checked my sugar around 5:30pm and it was 185. I had a cup of milk, exactly 1 cup, not a glass full, and when I checked it just now, 10:35pm, it was 325. The last time I did the low carb diet I pretty much did away with carbs altogether. I went from a 9.6 A1c to 6.7 A1c in six months. Now that I’ve gotten off my diet, my sugar has gone out of control.
Tomorrow is another day!!
