Diet Matters

The ole BG logging truck is definitely broken down and on the side of the road. That's the bad news. The good news is that I'm logging Weight Watchers points instead. Hubby is doing the online version, and I'm doing my own Excel worksheet version. I've been inspired by many of you in the OC who are losing weight with Weight Watchers. I lost 10 lbs with them a few years ago, and....ahem...need to re-lose at least those 10 again. After one week, hubby lost 5 lbs and I lost 3. I'm pretty sure that's the most weight I have ever lost in a week!

It is definitely making a difference in my BG's. I pulled the numbers out of my meter for the last week and here they are:

Average BG 108
Standard deviation 46%
41% in range, 39% low, 20% high

The number of lows is not acceptable, and I'm tweaking my ratios to try and get a handle on that. It's a little concerning since my BG upon waking in the morning has been in the 40's for 5 of the last 7 days. Not a good way to start the day!

On the job front, I'm starting a part-time, work from home accounting job tomorrow, and really looking forward to getting started. Pet sitting has picked up a bit as well, and I met with a really nice new client last night. Actually, all my clients are great. People who love their animals just tend to be my kinda people. Best of all, I found out last week that a new satellite church is opening soon in our area. The pastor and his wife were both used by God in my introduction to Christ, and my husband really respects them as well. We are both interested in helping with the new church.

Way to go on the WW front! Given some time you'll figure out how to get rid of most of the lows.

Congratulations on the new job! I knew something would come along. I think dog people are special, too. It's nice to find people who love their dogs like we do ours.

Oh, I almost cried with joy when you mentioned the new church. It's so nice that your husband is interested, as well. We haven't found one for us yet. But I'm sure we will in God's good time.
