Weight - 202

Sugars - 93

Everything looking good with half the Metformin.  This next week will be the big test as I'm dropping the med altogether.  The scale will also be interesting, Brandon's birthday party was this weekend and I was a weak man.  I had cake.  If it was my kink I'd probably flog myself, instead I'll blog about it.  There have been many foods that I thought I missed while I was on Medifast and once I had them again I realized I didn't miss them all that much.  Cake almost fell into this category, almost

Weight: 203

Sugars: 84

My blood sugar has been lower since I've started taking less of my Metformin.  Not quite sure what to think about that one.  I'm keeping a pretty close eye on it.  It was down at 64 today after doing some yard work, which I don't think I've ever seen it that low since I was taking glyburide.

3/26 and 4/2 Weigh ins

I'm on the weight yo-yo.  Dropped 3 pounds on 3/26 and then put it back on 4/2.  I'm sitting at 207 right now, which isn't a terrible spot to be I suppose.  The more exciting news is that I'll be dropping my Metformin after talking with my doctor.  It's a watershed moment for me, a year ago I never would've thought it was possible that I'd be off all of my medications.

Weight: 206

When I first stepped on the scale it said, congratulations you are a normal weight!  I thought that's interesting, let's see how much weight I've lost and then it said 11 pounds and I knew something was wrong.  So I recalibrated the Wii scale and it turns out that when your two year old son presses down on the scale during calibration it doesn't work quite correctly.  It turns out that I put on two pounds which isn't surprising considering the following:  I had sushi one night, salad rolls the next and then a date night (with a fancy dinner) from Thursday to Sunday.

Weight: 204

Sugars: 96

Things are going well with transition off of Medifast.  Even though I'm eating more it still seems to be a small enough calorie count to lose weight.  It's been a busy week and it's only going to get busier from here on out.

Weight: 207

Sugars: 91

I realized today that it's been three weeks since my last post.  I only had a good excuse for one of those as I was on vacation.  Transitioning off of Medifast is harder than being on the diet as it's far easier to succumb to temptation.  All in all it's going well though, only 11 more weeks!

Lost 4 pounds this week and my sugars were below 100 again.  Things are still going good, only 14 more weeks of transition diet!

Weight was unchanged this week which was good.  Didn't make through Super Bowl Sunday without cheating which is bad.  Sugars were at 96 which is also good.  Curious to see what next week brings with the introduction of grains again.

The scale wasn't a complete lie but I did put back on 2 pounds which I think is acceptable given the increased food take.  On the bright side my sugars were in the high 80s so that was a definite plus and I get to eat yogurt again.  I feel like deja vu in this post because savoring those bites of fruit flavored dairy deliciousness was glorious.  Yes, the italics are definitely necessary.  Next week I get to eat bread again.  Oh tasty, tasty bread.  I also get another serving of normal protein again.  That will then be the life for the next 16 weeks.

Becoming a Polyglot

For a while now I've had the best of intentions when it came to learning new languages. The road to hell is paved with good intentions, as they say. Now that my number one resolution for the past ten years is done (losing weight), I've decided to make good on resolutions. This year I've decided to learn JavaScript. I already know JavaScript, but I don't really know JavaScript like I want to. Luckily work had a copy of the first book I wanted to read, JavaScript: The Good Parts by Douglas Crockford. Time to get reading!
