    Morning Wake-Up Readings 2017

    84 this morning. My friend, a professional photographer, took this photo of Fiare and me. 1 more month and I will have maintained my weight at 200 or so for 1 year. @Ahnanimus - I must do a lot of warehouse store shopping because I seem to have a house full of stuff I may never use.

Four hours up, two hours looks at properties, and four hours home so breakfast,lunch and dinner was all fast food places. Sunday we had about 4 - 6 inches of snow and I took this photo of the dogwood berries...

    149 Spent an hour and a half with a very nice lady from the insulin pump company learning how to use it. She's also a dietician. This thing is really easy to use and I hardly notice I have it on. Stuck the first one on the back of my upper arm. One stick when you activate it then you never feel anything until it runs out. Supposed to last for 3 days but she recommended I skip the carb counting for now and just bolus as I've been doing before meals to get used to it so it might run out after 2 days. I go back in 2 weeks to see how it's working and for adjustments and to start blousing to what I'm about to eat instead of a fixed amount.

    146 Off work all week. Focusing on things around the house to get it ready to put back on the market in March. I swear if this house ever sells I'll buy everyone here dinner. The last thing holding me and the ex together.

    103 Omnipod rep said my numbers looked good and showed it to the doctor and he was happy with it too. In fact he had her lower my basal rate a little bit. Anxious to see what my next A1C will be in 2 months.

    let's see, 141 right now. lunch, cheap chicken noodle soup-8g carb, 1 g sugar. Dinner: salmon salad, mixed greens a little tartar sauce with some sugar in that. snacks, cashews, cheddar cheese or turkey jerky- 4g carb, 4 g sugar) breakfast: coconut oil, avocado, eggbeaters,coffee, cheese. Actually my diet is about the same. some crackers and chocolates are new. So, I will keep a good log and a eye on things. I am staying under 160 lbs, so I'm not eating a lot.

    108 So I'm sitting in a chair watching tv last night and the Omnipod pump starts alarming. Constant loud beep. Check the display and it says "pod error, no communication". So I rip it off and put a new one on and the old one still won't shut up. So I put it in the freezer and called the 800 support number. They told me how to disable it using a toothpick and had me check an error code and said it was "static electricity" that caused it. Ok? They're sending me some free replacement pods to make up for it. At least their support is good. Dad isn't doing well. The end is approaching. Fever, shakes, non-responsive, hasn't eaten since Friday, not taking fluids.... My sister came in late last night. I'm going home this afternoon.

    98 today. It's been raining all day, so there's not much of the super moon to see. It was quite huge last night so I can imagine it would be spectacular tonight. @adiantumand @meyery2k I do enjoy going to warehouse sales, just have to learn to curb my enthusiasm for buying the "who knows, I may need this someday" items many of which I eventually give away. Congratulations on maintaining your weight loss @meyery2k, you give me inspiration for doing the same.

    155 My pump was going to run out in the middle of the night so I temporarily suspended the basal dose until 5 am so it wouldn't. When it runs out the alarm goes off continuously. I probably should've changed it before I went to bed but I hate to waste the insulin that's left in it. Guess with this reading I shouldn't worry about that. I also went out to dinner with a girl last night (different girl, just dinner) and didn't bolus before. Had bacon wrapped scallops and a half a side salad. Yum.

    100 Pretty sure I had 2 minor low's yesterday. Also 2 hours after eating a world famous Willie's Weenie Wagon pork chop sandwich and some fries I was also at 100. This pump is working. A little too good maybe. Might need to lower the basal amount. Currently running at 3.5/hour. Happy Thanksgiving to those of us in the USA. And happy Thursday to everyone else!

    118 this morning. Let myself sleep in because it's a holiday. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! (Found a no sugar added pumpkin pie - yay! Not low carb, sorry to say. I may skip the crust, though, unless it's spectacular.)

    146 Going to the endo at 10 to meet with the Omnipod nurse to set up my pump and learn how to use it. I am REALLY not wanting a pump and I'm already very resistant to the idea. I've read several reviews where people say the alert beeps and loud alarms on it are really annoying and happen at the most inopportune times. She said it'll take an hour or two. Plus it's an hour drive each way. On my day off. Whine, whine, whine. Oh and that girl I went out with works in the building next to my endo's office. That's where I first met her in person.

    152 While I'm really disappointed things didn't work out with her, I did look at the clock around 8 last night and think "Boy am I glad I'm home and not 40 miles away sitting in a strange church listening to a choir."

    6.1 ran I believe java could be right about you being a full on D with those numbers but your A1c will tell you. Happiness is...when Kerrygold butter is on half price special. I just ordered heaps. Disappointment will be when they claim its out of stock.

    7 That super moon is a magnificent sight. Something big, round & bright shining on my bed. It looked like the sun but when I checked the clock it was only 5am. I had to get up to take a better look...wow ..so pleased I did. I'm in awe of this universe & lucky to be part of it.

    117 this morning. I'm happy with it, considering I had about a quarter cup mashed potatoes (homemade, yum!), cookies, Chex mix, and a bite each of cake and pie crust. I didn't eat anything after 7:30. I brought the cookies and Chex mix to dinner and left them behind so the aren't here to tempt me. (All store-bought; I don't keep baking supplies anymore.) Wow, Fundad, I'm impressed with how quickly your numbers have gone down!

    90 Pump is doing it's job. Last night at 11:30 I checked and saw it was getting low so I had to sit and change out the pod. It's a process. I just knew I was going to screw it up because I was so sleepy but alas, I didn't. I'm sure in a few weeks I'll be able to do it blindfolded. Last year I was alone on Thanksgiving and had McDonald's for dinner. It was really nice to be with family this year. Me and my daughters, my parents and one of my brothers and his wife. Had a great tasty meal. Skipped breakfast and dinner yesterday. Just hat the mid-day turkey meal.

    95 this morning. Happy Thanksgiving (USA) I am by myself (physically) this year but don't mind. I will go work at the homeless shelter to serve lunch. I have a beautiful seasoned pork chop to prepare with vegetables. Best part is that my friend gave me a mason jar full of his homemade eggnog. It has so much liquor it is measured by octane lol... Dessert and cocktail in the same jar. I always did appreciate efficiency.

    86 Cornish game hens for us here. A turkey is ridiculous for just two, and neither of us are huge turkey fans to begin with. There will be enough for dinner and a little for leftovers.
