“And when you seek to find answers, know that they are out there if you simply allow them to come”.

Yesterday I tracked my calorie intake, which by the way was a real pain in the ass. I monitored 1422 calories taken in, but I cheated. I ate a bunch of crap last night before bed. I am figuring that I brought it up to 2000 calories. I was hungry and my mind knew it and demanded the adjustment. So I believe that taking it down slowly is the key along with getting enough calories during the day. I will set a target of 1800 calories. In the mean time, I burned 681 calories on the treadmill yesterday and during the course of the day with just work functions I must of have burned an additional 1300 or so because my weight came in this morning matching yesterday at 172.2. This may just be all a bunch of crap with these figures, but I do know that the key to weight loss is burning more calories than you are taking in.

Morning glucose reading clocked a 116 this morning, which is down 4 points from yesterday. I will stay with the reduced medication plan for another day. It may have been lower if I hadn’t eaten all of that crap last night. Cheese Its. What the hell is a cheese it anyway? I am scared to read the ingredients. It was a Trader Joe’s product so maybe it wasn’t as bad as I think.
