Today this thing popped up on Pinterest saying “the average 4 year old weighs 35lbs.” Since I can (barely) lift two 35lb dumbbells over my head a couple of times, does that make me better at my job?! #gymthoughts
It's time to clear the air of this common misconception about the cause of type 2 diabetes.
Mama, mama won't you look at me
I grew up fast and my mind is free
Well I don't know everything
But I do remember what you said, you said...
Life is all about balance and redemption
Moderation, love and affection
This meditation and inner reflection
Keep the faith with your soul's intention
Let the truth shine through with your actions
Make your dreams come true with attraction
Always live your life with no regret
And don't look back but never forget 💛💛💛💛💛 #hikingmyfeelings

Obv I miss my grandma every day, but today I miss her extra. Idk how or why, but she would just “fix” things for me. Not that she’d really fixed things, she just worked her magic and created light at the end of the tunnel 🤔💗
My mini Doberman, Fang, is counting on me. How can I let her down?
Dinner this evening is a turkey escalope, corn on the cob, green beans and a little bit of the last of the frittata. Was really pleased with how full I was. Normally after dinner I would settle down for choc and sweets now. If I get peckish later I have a few grapes to munch on. 🌽🍇#type2diabetes #type2diabetic #weightlossjourney
It’s Fall 🍁 y’all! And that means it’s sheet pan supper season again! This is my bratwurst and Fall veggie sheet pan supper with maple mustard glaze. Find the recipe on my blog! The link is in my profile! Subscribe to my blog while you’re there! Cool stuff happens when I’m cooking!
Breakfast is green tea with one tsp of raw local honey, two boiled eggs with salt and paprika, and oatmeal cooked with unsweetened almond milk, pumpkin spice, cinnamon, monkfruit sweetener, and one tsp raw local honey. Calories 353 44g of carbs. I still have no voice. My love canceled Jay's feeding therapy appointment and made me an appointment. #weightlossjourney #noms #lossingweight #type2diabetic
Det här är Elin, en av våra medlemmar som är typ2-diabetiker. Hon fick sin diagnos 2017 men har sedan dess framgångsrikt gjort en stor livsstilsförändring, med hjälp av LCHF (ca 25-50 gram kolhydrater per dag) och motion. Så här skriver Elin om resultaten från förra veckans besök hos diabetesmottagningen: ”Dagens årliga hc-besök och provtagning gick jättebra, långtidssocker på 27 mmol/mol (DCCT 4,6%) och enda rådet var att inte gå ner mer i vikt samt att jag borde skriva en bok om min resa och att jag borde föreläsa för andra om kost och motion 😊 bilderna visar 2018 v/s 2015”
Starkt jobbat och grattis, säger vi på Smarta Diabetiker.
I went to the cinema his lunchtime, so took a wholemeal sandwich, some baked crisps and a couple of sugar free liquorice sweets. When I got there I found out Tango ice blasts are sugar free! Sure they are full of all sorts of other rubbish, but as a once in a while treat these could be something to look forward to. #type2diabetes #type2diabetic
I GOT PUBLISHED 😀🎉🎉 .
In this research paper, I reviewed treatments for prediabetes. Swipe for article highlights ➡️➡️➡️
📍WHAT IS PREDIABETES?
It's a state where our blood sugar levels are higher than normal but we haven’t yet developed diabetes. 70% of people with pre-diabetes will progress to diabetes in their life. For this reason, it's a time to ACT to become healthier and prevent the development of diabetes. 🚫🚫🚫
📍CAN WE TREAT PRE-DIABETES?
The first line treatment for prediabetes is "intensive lifestyle intervention". This involves 150 minutes of physical activity weekly and eating a healthy, low-fat diet. A study of 3000 people in 2009 showed that this treatment is very effective and reduced the number of people that developed diabetes by 58%. 📉📉📉
. 📍HOW ARE WE DOING AT THE MOMENT?
Despite the fact that we have evidence and know how to treat pre-diabetes, it often goes undiagnosed and untreated. In fact, one study showed that only 1 third of people with pre-diabetes had recieved diet and lifestyle advice. As one study put it: “it's time to prevent a preventable disease". 📗📕📘
. 📍If you have been diagnosed with prediabetes, ask your GP for a dietitian referral! 👩🏼🔬👨🏽🔬👨🏻⚕️👩🏽⚕️

I have officially been keto for 7 days and I have lost exactly 10 lbs! I went from 369.4 to 359.4. In addition to the weight loss, my blood sugar has generally stayed between 114 and 140. The lowest it has been in the last 7 days was 101 and the highest was 180. My average blood sugars in the past have run in the mid to high 200s, so this is a pretty awesome change!
My knee pain and my #diabeticneuropathy
continue to be minimal and the only thing I have craved this entire week is pancakes, and even that didn’t start until yesterday! 😄 I don’t want any candy, I don’t want any bread, I don’t want any Little Debbies or a 2 liter of Coke. This coming from someone who would eat an ENTIRE box of Little Debbies at ONE TIME! No joke. 😣
I have also been utilizing #intermittentfasting
, leaving myself an 8 hour window every day to eat, and not eating for 16 hours a day. I start my window at 10 am and end it at 6 pm. When it is outside of my eating window I only drink water or unsweetened tea.
I don’t feel hungry, as a matter of fact I can’t believe how not hungry I am. I have my coffee with creamer and #stevia
in the morning and then I generally only have 1 meal after that.
I’m excited to get started on week number 2, and I’m hoping for a loss of at least 3 more pounds when I weigh in next Sunday morning. I would love for my blood sugar is to continue to stay in the low to mid 100s and I would LOVE finally, for the first time ever, see a blood sugar under 100!
Thanks for dropping by to check on me! Good luck to you on whatever goals you are currently working towards, and I hope you have a wonderful week! 💜

Two of my favorite things: the gym & candy 😍😍
Made two excellent meals today: breakfast was diabetic friendly oatmeal pancakes 🥞 with over easy eggs 🥚 from our chickens 🐓 and sausage links; dinner was fresh blackened Pacific Salmon caught by a friend of ours on one of his NW fishing 🎣 trips, roasted veggies (sweet potatoes, bell peppers, zucchini, and fresh jalapeños & green chilies 🌶 from our garden and wild rice. Everything was delicious 😋! Even better is the leftovers for the week.😊. It was the best salmon we have had in quite sometime!!
Big ass anniversary steak with Kerry gold butter 😏
Went on a 2hr hike today with my hubby and then we stopped @cornerbakery
to have lunch . Checked my Bg and it was 45😮. Weird because I only felt tired towards the end of the hike, had no idea it was that low. I did take and ate a few macadamia nuts and ate 1/2 of my epic bar ( chicken )during the hike and had tons of water with electrolytes in it. Anyways ... had most of my chopped salad now it’s time to go home, rest, cook and get ready for the work week😊#lketo #type2diabetes #ketoworks #imdetermine #keepitsimple #type2diabetes #type2diabetic #lchf #bethechange
Sweet potato and spinach frittata with some light cream cheese for dinner this evening. Today has been another hard one. I’m sure I’ll get used to it, but not being able to eat what I want at the moment is horrible. Plus I felt very weak and tired all day - I just felt like I needed a can of coke to perk me up! 😂 which I know would not help at all. But that’s how I felt 🤷🏻♀️ #type2diabetes #type2diabetic
Fresh mushroom and cheddar omelette with some bacon to get my day going!
“THE REAL CAUSE OF DIABETES.” I realize that this is a time where many people are on social media sharing advice. With that being said I’ve been getting more angry messages about wellness info that I share. ——————————
So the best way to help the information register is to share from a “certified medical doctor” that “doesn’t share the same color as me” for the info to be “credible.” Notice SUGAR is not mentioned as the cause.
Dr. Michael McGregor does a lot of work with diabetes. Feel free to research his work further. #diabetestype2causes #type2diabetes #type2diabetic #type2diabetics

“Nossa Carol, queria ter a glicemia perfeita como a sua!”
Já ouvi várias vezes que minha glicemia é maravilhosa e que eu tenho um controle perfeito. Isso não é verdade. Nada é perfeito e sempre há falhas! Não olhem apenas os gráficos glicêmicos bonitos, olhem também aqueles com erros na contagem de carboidrato, aqueles com uma semana estressante.
Nunca se sintam desmotivados por verem outro diabético no controle, pois essa pessoa também passou por todos os caminhos que vocês estão percorrendo também e, além disso, nada é verdade absoluta e a qualquer momento os diabéticos podem perder o controle da glicemia, até os mais experientes!
Não procurem a perfeição, procurem a dedicação e a responsabilidade com o próprio corpo, tudo no seu tempo e com o tratamento que te faça bem! 💙💉🔵
