You came down a lot faster than I did! Thank goodness you didnt love it, indeed. You were lucky to have all the fat from the butter, too. I waited about 40 minutes to add the fat via HWC. Need a lot of fat at lunch.

2 hours in, Im at 134. That said, I usually creep UP at hour 2 because my digestion has slowed, so, Im happy to be recovering faster and know I will come down in the next 50-90 minutes.

I get those calf cramps as well when I try stretching my legs while sleeping. Now I simply don't attempt to stretch them in bed but wait till I'm out and about. They are extremely painful!

A 5.8 for me this morning. Still no idea what is causing the higher fasting numbers since my regime hasn't changed in the slightest.

If that isnt a big "Stick to the diet and dont go off the grid sign" for me, I dont know what is.
When I first started to test after eating I had my usual " healthy breakfast " a bowl of Cherios, a banana and 2% milk. An hour later I was at 350.
I later tried a 1/2 banana by itself and was ay 160. No more bananas but that was when I realized something was wrong with the way I had been advised to eat. I started doing research and found lchf. I'm just sorry it took so long for me to learn this.

HOLY SMOKES!!!! 350! Well, It is a wake up call, isnt it?

I cant reason why my A1C was 5.9 then 6.1 with all I used to eat- should have been over 7! Hopefully, it will be down big time next month. Btw- back to 82 before lunch. Whew!

Because your insulin receptors are only a little screwed up, relatively speaking, and your body was still mostly handling the extra sugar load.

I tried eating my beloved oatmeal after my diagnosis and ended up with a 213! Yikes!

6.1 this morning. Don't like 6s - have been getting comfortable in the 5s. I don't think I have eaten enough fat lately, so will step that up.

Have a great day/evening everyone!

3.8 this morning.

Overcast warmish morning with expected top temp of 23C, some showers predicted this Wednesday Feb 26th. Must have rained through the night as dogs have left a trail of little paw prints on the tiles (they use the doggy door if they have to potty through the night).

Paulomi, your little child is demonstrating normal behaviour when he comes home from daycare. Sure he appears happy and cooperative whilst he's there but what he needs at home is his mum's undivided attention.

When he's clingy and wanting to be carried all the time he's telling you loud and clear that he needs you. Hold him close to your body, speak to him gently, assure him that mummy loves him and has missed him during the day. When he has calmed down include him in what you are doing, preparing the evening meal etc.

You can never regain the precious early years, children grow very quickly and soon demonstrate their need for independence. But, the only way a child can successfully do this is to know that they are unconditionally loved by a committed parent or carer.

Your son will never remember whether you washed the floor everyday or whether you ironed the bed sheets. What he will remember is whether you were there for him when he needed you.

Parenting is not easy, it is a huge responsibility. By rising to the challenge you will one day have the satisfaction of knowing that you played the major role in ensuring your son grows into a well-rounded adult who is capable of living life to the fullest.

And yes, there were times that I shouted at my kids but I always ensured, when I had calmed down, that I explained why I had done so and apologised for my behaviour just as I expected them to do if they had acted out.

You are fortunate that you have a partner to assist you in your parenting role, many of us did not. Talk to him about your feelings and enlist his help when you are tired and frustrated.

I know that you are a good mum, that was evident from your posts when your son was sick. Be confident in your parenting role - none of us are/were perfect parents but on reflection we can be happy in the knowledge that we did the best we could at the time. That's all anyone can ask of us.
