Hey everyone! Thanks for stopping by and checking out how my husband and I did this week. We are on week 3 of our weight loss journey for this year. I have to say the first couple of weeks were pretty great. Our bodies were getting rid of all the crap that we had eaten at our favorite take out places, soda, sugar and who knows what else. We have been drinking a lot more water and I felt more energetic and healthier.
For some reason on the third week I was really tired, I still felt more energetic but found myself getting tired more easily again. Feeling like taking a nap which always happened before. I’m not sure if it is because of my Fibromyalgia or not but I’m assuming so. Either way I have still kept chugging right along, eating home cooked meals from scratch and keeping the food I consume as natural as it can be and drinking tons of water.
My husbands blood sugar is still staying down compared to normal and he’s thinking now that he can just not take insulin. Recap on that, my husband has been taking oral meds for his diabetes for years now but in the past few months the meds were not doing anything anymore and his numbers have been so high in the 300’s and his doc put him on insulin. He went out and got everything he needed to start injections but wanted to wait it out and see how eating different would help. His numbers are now between 98 and less than 200. So he’s hoping that he can just skip the injections if he does not need them.
I’m really glad that we are working together on this because we spent so many years eating unhealthy at times and we need to focus on our health so we can enjoy the rest of our lives.
Time for weigh in… This week I’m a little confused about, not with my numbers but my hubbies. I am down another 2 lbs making a total weight loss this year down 13lbs. My hubby was actually up 3 lbs from last week so not really sure what happened there. He hasn’t given up hope though and I myself don’t think he needs to lose weight but to just get healthier so not losing for this week seems okay to me because eating healthy is what’s important too.
Join us next week to see how week 4 goes…
Thanks for stopping by!
