THAT IS FANTASTIC!!! You just slipped that little gem in on someone elses's post and didn't make a big deal about it. Buddy!!! You have to toot your own horn around here to get everyone else revved up, ok? So, now you have to share all the ins and outs of what you have been doing...

Food plan, exercise plan, supplements, everything else...

Inquiring minds want to know tongue !

Been busy with working jobs and all. Here is what I have been doing. I have cut out most carbs. I have been eating more meat, and more meals a day. Also I have been much more active. I was on leave from my job over the winter and admittedly got lazy. I do still enjoy an occasional pasta dish, we were eating pasta at least 3 times a week before. When I get hungry in the evening I will eat a slice of luncheon meat with no bread. I also make it a point to eat breakfast in the morning. So I am back to eating 3 meals a day insteead of 1 or 2 like I have been for years. I still find myself fighting portion control and second helpings of my favorite dishes. I am winning that battle :) I think for most people it is the mindset of food that makes it difficult.

I start back to work next week... New company, new challenges. Should be interesting as I will be working the overnight shift. I will have to adjust my eating and sleeping schedule. The hard part is going to be changing back for the weekend and live like anormal person... Should be interesting.

Scooter,
I'm glad you mentioned this. Shift change can lead to really weird blood glucose patterns so be sure to pack some hard candies, caramels or tootsie rolls in your pocket in case you get a hypoglycemic attack. Also, it might be best if you didn't try to jump back and forth on the weekends but instead sort of slept late and stayed up late.

Whatever you decide to do, be sure to check your sugars often because the altered sleeping times will make everything go kattywampus. Also, when hubby worked the night shift we found that aluminum foil over the windows really helped with the sleep. Also, ear plugs and white noise from an air conditioner helped, too. Good luck with this.
