Under the weather today

I'm sick, which absolutely sucks since I just had a cold a couple of weeks ago.  When I went to my brother's house last week, my mom had a cold and she refused to do anything about it.  I told her I didn't want to get sick, but she was being stubborn.  Now, here I am, unable to breathe through my nose and sneezing up a storm.  Oh well.

Even though I no longer present as a diabetic after having good weight loss on Optifast, I still check my blood sugar just to make sure I'm doing okay.  Today I felt like my blood sugar was high, just had these symptoms that used to be clear signs of a level that was near the 300's (which is not a good thing).  So I tested my blood sugar and I was 66.  Uh oh, that wasn't good either.  It's so weird for me to be too low when I spent years and years having a too-high blood sugar.  I suppose I'm still making adjustments as I continue onward to a healthier life.  Of course, these are great things to have to adjust to, just weird for me to believe the numbers.  I'm super grateful, don't get me wrong.  It's a great place to be in and I need the reminders to keep on this path.  Right now, I'm feeling tired of drinking the shakes.  It's been almost ten months and I just want to move past this phase, but I still have weight to lose.  So I'll keep putting one foot in front of the other.
