  1. It's amazing how food is not in the forefront of my life now. Really enjoying the new me and my new outlook. Glad you're on this journey with us!
  2. Great job... You're looking great!
  3. 2.5 years out. I'm perplexed... I feel crummy.. Can't keep my blood sugar up for long. I can't just keep eating ... Love my size 4 jeans and me now... not at my lowest but 15 lbs up. I want to get back to my lowest. Went to the doctor yesterday and at least I know why I feel crummy. Tell me how you've dealt with low blood sugar. The schedule you eat on. what you eat... What's an acceptable reading... How many carbs? I'm carbs addicted and don't want to fall into that trap again. I know some of you have been where I am. Fasting 70 Protein shake 6 oz kefir 10 am bs 78 11 am yogurt and cranberries 1 pm bs 102 2 pm 2 eggs and 1 oz cheddar cheese 4 pm bs 5 pm 1 oz beef jerky and cashews 7pm bs 8 pm 3 oz ham 1/2 sweet potato 10 pm bs More food than I want... Scared of gaining

  8. In the beginning of my journey, I read "because you can, doesn't mean you should!"(Thanks, Jolls!) I, too, measure my portions still at 2 1/2 years out and eat no more than 3/4 cup combined protein and veggies. I weigh my protein. (3 oz)
