    101 and still no Novolog since Sunday. @Hammer - I did not know that. Four years ago when I ate low carb and walked EVERY day I lost 40 pounds. I was not on Novolog at that time, only Lantus once a day and I decreased it from 100 units to 12 for a year and a half until I gained weight back and stopped walking every day.

    112 I have not taken ANY Novolog since Sunday. Been eating very low carb and getting good readings and not needing it. You can't imagine how happy I am about that. Oh wait....I'm talking to a bunch of fellow diabetics, so I guess y'all can imagine. Lol. I despise taking insulin.

    2019 Morning Fasting BG Readings

    hi friends, i've been away again. fbg runs between 5.2 and 6.0. Got my a1c today-- 5.0 :) i am not sure why it isn't higher, considering since the beta blocker...my fbg tends to always be between 100-108 rather than 90 and 100. post prandial numbers take longer (an extra hour) to return to 5.6 and below. that's been really annoying. if i hit a 7 (very rarely 1 hr pp)...it will stay stuck for four hours before dropping. but seems like the average a1c wasn't too bad. all in all blood sugar ranges between 95 to 120 (max after meals). i honestly can't do any better than this. i have been so incredibly disciplined (self praise..i know...we t2ds are usually sort of blamed for the disease and assumed to be indisciplined and unmotivated...particularly those of us that are fat like myself). i am annoyed my numbers have gone up after the beta blocker, but i can't deny it has improved my quality of life tremendously now that my heart isn't racing for no reason even at rest. like today i have palpitations (100 ish..rather than 130-140) and it's so much more bearable. i can walk around more. i can do stuff. i am still not fully recovered or normal yet. fatigue is a hugee obstacle. but as my IST (inappropriate sinus tachycardia) stabilizes, i will have more energy. i was honestly thinking my a1c would be in the high 5s (which is a great number to be sure). but this is good..very good. another reason why i say this is because being a fat woman, we aren't taken seriously anyway. doctors assume i don't care for myself, that i would slack off with diabetes care. and these A1Cs actually keep me safe in the fatphobic medical environment. they, at least, keep doctors taking me a bit more seriously rather than giving up on my care. thank you all for reading, for your support and encouragement. like i don't know any diabetics irl that i can meet up with. it can be lonely as heck as a younger (30) t2d. but i always have a home here with you guys. thank you for everything.

    The past several days have been either 89 or 94. Today, at 89, was no exception. 1,609 kilometers of cycling this month which equates to 1,000 statue miles.

    My daughter's new twin babies....

    My daughter just sent me these three pictures of her new twins. She has a favorite photographer that she uses from time to time, since he has a studio with all types of backgrounds. My daughter has a basic studio set up in her basement, but she only uses it for the occasional portrait shots.

    It is morning on the Cape and my reading was 118. On Cape Cod today it is going to be around 60F (15C) and foggy, but on the mainland it is going to be in the 80s (26C) and sunny with afternoon thunderstorms. The difference is because the cape is 60 miles (96 km) out in the Atlantic Ocean and the water temperature is 52F (11C) so when the hot humid air hit the cold ocean water instant fog.

    136 In May we had twice the normal amount of rain and for the year to date we had almost the whole year's worth of rain. I have wetlands (otherwise know as a swamp) behind my house and it is usually dry by now but it still has standing water in it and much of last year it was flooded. As a result many of the trees are drowning... great for woodpeckers with all the insects in the dying trees but bad for me. The two hundred feet (60 m) between my backyard and the main road is getting deforested and I can start to see the road but more annoying is I can hear the traffic.

    6.7 Its a shame to have a garden thrashed by hail. Long gone are the days when this girl would sit with a bowl of lychees Thats sad when a gardener has to put a sign out to stop thieves . Theres many trees dangling their fruits over fences around here. Mostly macadamias,lemons & mangoes. A council has planted mangoes as street trees along the footpaths near my old uni. Gardeners have banana palms overhanging their fences. I'm sure its a deliberate choice for students appreciate the harvest.
