Just Give Me 10 Days -Round 150

    @fmfdfa2020 I was aiming for 64 ounces of water until I met my doctor. She told me to think about aiming for 1/2 my body weight (lbs) in oz. When I started, I was 155 and rounded out to 75 oz of water. Now I just naturally aim for 90 since my water cup is 30 oz and I don't have to measure or guess.

    Everyone is different, though. Turns out, my body does so so so much better when I drink more. Plus, I've found that when I manage to drink more, I eat smaller portions and it's become a win-win. (My doc did mention that water will help me understand hunger vs thirst when she suggested upping it to 1/2 body weight).

    It's not a requirement (bodies are funny and everyone's reacts differently) but it was nice to experiment and find what makes a difference for me! Best of luck (:

    Thanks @CamandJarvis - very good to know! I'm feeling better at 62 to 64oz so now ready to try upping it. I was living on probably 4 cups a day before. Thanks again!

    05/11 …..208.8….. ENDING WEIGHT LAST ROUND
    05/12 …..208.4 ….. I am feeling super-charged and inspired. I hope this feeling lasts all day. No…..I hope it lasts for as long as I need it to. For some reason, this feels like ground zero! Good luck everyone on this round.

    05/13 …..207.4 ….. I tried a little Intermittent Fasting again yesterday. It went well during it but I did have a small glucose drop last night which I handled well. I will try again today. I’m a lady in training again, I suppose. Feeling good again today. I am seeing my doctor again in about a month. She said she needs to see a dramatic change or I’ll have to start taking insulin shots (which I am fighting). She took my fasting glucose (I was extra good the days prior knowing she would) was 513. My AIC was 13.8 . Things are not good here, but they are about to improve. I am working on my diet but also on my stress levels too. Stress has been through the roof!

    05/14 …..207.4 ….. Day 2 on the IF and it went well. Later, my daughter and DGS #4 moved back in due to her home problems. Last time we had a pretty bad argument and she had left, I think we will both try harder this time. She is looking for a rental but in this rural area that is few and far between. I’ll support her in any way I can. I just hope my diet doesn’t go askew now that normal meals will be needed for her and the 3 ½ year old.

    05/15 …..206.6 ….. Another good drop. No sleep last night. Literally, not one hour. Tried to nap today but still no sleep. Then I realized I accidentally took my thyroid pill before bed. That explains it. Well, I should sleep good tonight! Celebrating my birthday from the 10th tomorrow with my daughters. A ladies spa day. I’m looking forward to it.

    05/16 …..206.6 ….. I thought it would be lower. I had a perfect eating day yesterday. No bad snacks too (which is my nighttime weakness). However, it was a lazy rest day otherwise with my daughter and DGS staying the night with friends. Not much movement but I needed the rest from no sleep the night before. Today we celebrate my belated birthday. Spa day and dinner out. I will be very careful to keep up the progress.

    05/17 …..206.8 ….. After multiple days of celebrations this week, I am happy with this number. Back to IF today and good choices.

    05/18 …..206.8 ….. Glad to be maintaining but would like to see a little progress. My daughter brought me home a butter pecan Gelato last night which I ate. I really didn’t want to hurt her feelings as she is very fragile right now with her situation. Also, it was very expensive for the amount you get. I ate it and enjoyed it, but tonight I will carefully have another talk with her if her mood is okay. It’s not just about weight. It’s about the diabetes too. I know she is just trying to be nice and to be grateful for my help. Perhaps she can take a walk with me instead. I truly would appreciate that more! Thankfully I had made a very low cal and low carb dinner so the scale was not negatively affected.
