    2020 Morning FBG readings

    139 today. Still testing waters with fasting, so far I was able to fast 22-24 hrs (from 5pm dinner to 5pm dinner next day) which is a progress from "reduced window of feeding" like 12pm-5pm. I am going to go for 36 hrs today, I did it before for other reasons only this time it does not feel like punishment - feels like new frontier

    83 again today. Simon took this picture of me on our ride yesterday. Mauna Kea, in the background, still has a significant capping of snow.

    79mg/dL this morning. My average FBG last January was 120+mg/dL. Since last January...I've lost 46 lbs. I'm literally starving myself thinner. 31 lbs to go and I'll be able to dig out my old clothes. The last time I was this weight was in 1996. My original mantra still stands in regards to weight loss. 'You wanna lose weight...push yourself away from the table a little earlier and trade that 18" dinner plate in for a salad plate'.

    Hi guys, back again to share my latest A1C results- 4.8 YAY!!!!!!! 🤩 I can't even..omg! Oh and seen a few fastings in the 4s! Only testing when I eat something that deviates from my norm. Had a pork hock today with one baby potato and some saurkraut. had a spoonful of spaetzle (sp.). 2 hr pp it was 5.4! not bad at all so umm my doctor wants me to stop metformin. uh..nervous. but will see what happens to that A1C after i stop. i am taking 500 mg x 2 a day. -- fasting this morning was 4.7- 80 something (this doesn't happen often i am sure as i don't test daily but it was nice to see!)

    Yippee! The darling doubles decided to fight back with a knockout blow to the terrible triples. This morning's reading was 76! The lowest I've ever been.

    67 this morning. I thought I reduced lantus again last night but a review of my notes revealed I was already at that number for a few days. This month has been crazy but crazy good. I've reduced Lantus from 50 units to 31 units since January 2nd. I've lost 15 pounds - huh, what? I think the Lantus free fall is responsible for the weight falling off and vice-versa. I went to the doctor last week and got on their scale and it aligns with mine so my scale isn't broken! I got new A1c results, too and went from 6.9 to 6. Oh, how I would love to have seen that 5 number but, next time.

    64 This morning. I started Whole30 on Thursday. Last night I decided I'd lower my lantus by 2 units because my daytime numbers had been lower than normal and I was 80 at bedtime. Glad I lowered it. Now, today, my Libre says that I haven't been over 100 since yesterday at 3:00 PM when I was slightly over 100 after lunch. Thinking I'll probably lower Lantus a bit again tonight. Maybe just one 1 unit.

    98 today. 18,849 km (11,712 miles) cycled last year. At 25 mpg, that is roughly 468.5 gallons of gas I didn't have to buy. Came damned close to that 12,000 mile goal in spite of illness.

    91 today. To quote the late George Carlin, at voir dire, simply explain "I would make a great juror because I can spot guilty people just like that!" Gail sent me these great socks and keychain for my birthday. Cool accessories make you go faster...

    Must have been tired. Slept almost to 7AM (usually up between 5 and 530). Even the cats left me alone which is short of miraculous. It gets down to the mid-60's at night which is great sleeping weather. We are so used to warm weather we consider this cold lol. Tigger and Bella even curl up together for warmth. 96 today. I ate a super large dinner last night. Have to do the clear liquid thing today for a colonoscopy tomorrow. Trying to stave off being "hangry". Here is a promotional photo for "Our Town" Left to right are the Constable (yours truly), Doc Gibbs, Director Randall, and the Stage Manager. In the production I have a better jacket and a neat badge. The badge (being lent to me by a castmate) has an interesting connection. The theatre we are performing in was once the Hilo police station. The badge belonged to the father of the cast member that lent it to me. This very badge was on duty in this station and has come home for a time to be on duty again in a different capacity.

    57 on the Libre and confirmed the low at 60 on the meter. This after reducing Lantus 8 units over the past 8 nights! So weird. Think I’ll just go ahead and drop it 5 units tonight.
