New Week Weigh In

Got weighed on Monday and I've lost 3.8lbs :-D

Now I know I've still got a little bit left from my 5lb birthday gain but I am so pleased that I have lost 3.8lbs (and that .8 is very important). All I did was think about what I was eating before I put it anywhere near my mouth.

As for my exercise I have yet to make this a prominent feature in my week. Firstly I need to have a rummage through the house as we are overflowing our 2 up 1down house. So my mission over the coming weeks is too sort through everything we have and decide what needs to go up in the loft, what can be put on ebay, what can be given to charity and what junk needs chucking.

Well that's my lunch break over, suppose I should get back to work

Love Bex

Birthday, Blood Sugars, Weight Gain

Well I've neglected my blog for a couple of weeks thanks to having a few blips with my diabetes and its been my birthday.

A couple of weeks ago I had a few episodes of low blood sugar dizziness which really worried me as it was the first time its ever happened to me. The first one happened at work after spending a morning in meetings I had my lunch then started to get quite dizzy, I knew something was wrong so I checked my blood sugars and they were around 4 which the lowest I have ever seen them. I got a bit worried but I had something sweet to bring them up and I started feeling much better. So the second, third, fourth, and fifth time it happened I was not as worried but I'm still concerned so I will be mentioning to my consultant when I see him next.

I had last week off work as it was my 25th birthday last Tuesday and I went back home to Bridlington and spent it with my family as it was also my Nan's birthday. I had a lovely few days catching up with my family and popping in for a cuppa with my best mate. I got lots of Yankee Candles, a new handbag and matching purse, earrings, money, a wire cupcake stand and my Nan had made me an apron.

So today was my first day back at work and my first meeting at Weight Watchers for 2 weeks. Work was OK a bit of a shock after having a week off but I managed it. As for tonight's weigh in I have gained 5lbs in the past two weeks but I am drawing a line under and tomorrow is a new day .
