Some might consider this bragging, some might consider this complaining. Either way, know that I genuinely need some help understanding what the heck is going on.
In the last 5 months, I have dieted and exercised carefully. My result.. 43 pound weight loss. Literally, 22% of my body weight is gone. I used to wear a size 20 jeans… now a 12. My am bg down from the high 120's… new normal of 85-90. I take no meds for control, all effort is diet and exercise. Hard work, ok but it was paying off.
Sounds great… right??
Not so fast.
I was sick recently. Required antibiotics… zpack and claritin d for a total of 5 days. Even the doctor told me, don't worry the bg would be higher. Ok. I have been off the antibiotics and decongestants for a week.. yet my am bg is triple digit values. I am sticking to my diet, even my exercise. This is becoming very discouraging! How long can I expect this to go on??
SO very frustrating… actually, I am getting angry. Not that anger changes anything, but if it is going to be this way no matter what I do… maybe I will just eat what I dang well want.
HELP… what can I do, how long will this continue??
