I’m Being Pretty Slack….

Tuesday is Vitals reporting day. If it were not for this I would probably not be posting! I have become very slack on my Blogging lately.

It is that time of year where my business begins to dominate most of my waking hours. This is when we will find out just how solid my dedication to my health really is. So far so good.

I’m not wild about my numbers this week, they are holding, but just holding, not improving. Here’s the skinny…

Weight 205.2 (no change) Body Fat 29.5 (no change, not convinced) H20 59.5, (same) BP 139/78/48hr, (not bad, still better then its been in a long time) Glucose 179, (up slightly, not good, but not 240 either) INR 1.8 (with increased dosage, proves I’m eating my vegetables)  Keytones (new) = trace 5.

Thought I would have lost a pound or two this week. Not whining by any means, I can feel and see a few small changes taking place with my body. My strength is up. My mid section is a little more solid. Sleep is good.

Key; I still don’t think I am getting the TNT diet 100% right yet though. I feel like I am making good food choices I just don’t think that I have the portion sizes down yet. Time to purchase a food scale.

Small victory of sorts; Last Thursday we had to be in Portland for the day, we found ourselves at the mall food court, hummm what to order at a food court? Ordered what they call a Panda Bowl from Panda Express. Healthy portion of steamed vegetables covered with a serving of grilled chicken strips without their sugar-laden sauces.

I tested my glucose levels when we arrived home about 90 minutes later, Tested 118, That is just an incredible number for me.

    None of this is linear. If it were – we would all be skinny. The fact that we sometimes level off. or move in fits and spurts, just proves we are human.

    There are so many – who do not see progress and jump ship. In my business group, we call them them short termers. They join and if they do not score a big account in the first couple of weeks – they leave. No concept of the investment in time it takes to get a real return.

    It has taken me well in excess of 2 years to really understand portion sizes. What a wake up call. Just how stupid am I – what a slow learner. The reality – every where we look – we see portion sizes that are 2 -3 times what they should be – of course we over eat.

    Good Luck

  2. Hello TNT,
    I think you know me well enough by now to see that I am not a quitter. I feed off a good challenge!

    Portion sizes have been a burden to me for I don’t know how long. Of course when I was first diagnosed with Type II they set me down and showed me what a serving of cereal, spaghetti chicken, vegetables etc…I remember looking at the examples and thinking, “How the hell do I live off that amount?”

    These are the same folks who educated me to the theory that I should be consuming around 240grams of Carbs a day too. Thinking about it was probably lower then what I had developed a habit of eating.

    240 grams a day means a 240 am glucose reading.

    KFC’s “Double Sandwich” is getting all the fine reviews this morning Eh!!!
