As I gaze into the mirror this morning and look at my naked body I notice that while my muscles are increasing in size, as I burn fat they appear smaller. Then I think about a piece of meat. Not only is there fat on the outside of the flesh, but also running through every part of it. This fat is there to store energy for the muscle when needed. So as fat is burned, the overall size of the muscle itself appears smaller. This wants to make me work that muscle even harder on the next workout.

So today I am seeing signs of progress. Blood Sugar is slowly coming down along with the body weight. As a precaution I have increased my medication to 2000 mg of metformin daily. I may keep it this way until I start seeing my morning glucose reading back in the 80’s again. This balancing act I do, I believe is what will keep me alive and healthy way into my 90’s.
