What I’ve learned…

I’ve learned a few things these past few days….
1. You can truly eat WHATEVER you want. As I’m doing this calorie counter thing I am realizing that I can eat WHATEVER I want. Last night I REALLY wanted to dip my chicken fingers in ranch dressing… so I gave myself 1 tbsp and just ate it really sparingly, and ended-up only eating 1/2 of the 1 tbsp. And… I was happy. I also did the same thing with my fry sauce. You don’t need to take the fry and swirl it in the stuff… you just need a little dab… I’m slowly learning.
2. Those chicken fingers are actually good, and they have 14 grams of fiber in them. I highly recommend. Conner LOVED them… I ground-up a whole bag of that stuff, so it’ll be really easy to make next time . I also found that you dont need it ground into the finest crumbs — the larger tibits were tasty too…
3. You’ve gotta watch your credit cards. Someone did an errant charge on ours, of course I went through the whole rig-a-ma-role of changing the card out and it was a huge pain, but they just issued our credit. I wish that the credit card people would look into people who make fraudulent charges. I mean, I understand if it’s the wrong number put in by seomeone online, but I always worry those companies are scamming hundereds of people out of dollars (and I know a LOT of people don’t check their credit card bills very closely).
4. The easter egg thing was a big hit the first night. I highly recommend.
5. My lab tests came back. My thyroid is fine, but my glucose was 102. It does put me in a pre-diabetic range (but just barely). My doctor says to lose weight… um… duh. She said no soda or juice (which I probably have a small glass every 2 weeks, or less), of course she also said the cut-down on the baked goods. I’m trying, I’m hoping the calorie counting will help. Has anyone ever had a high fasting glucose level?

    I took a HgbA1C test awhile back and measured 5.8 and I guess 6 is diabetic. My Mom and Aunt have been diagnosed with diabetes so I’m trying to keep an eye on it. And with my pregnancies each one measured higher in the blood gluclose. I worry that if I ever have another baby It will push me over the edge.

    Hmm, don’t know anything about the glucose thing, but it sounds like you are doing awesome with your eating! Go Hilary!

    By chance do you have PCOS? They checked my Thyroid FOREVER before they figured out what I had… and I was pre-dibetic too… just a thought.

    Good job with the eating healthy!
