Today is day seven of my Journey. My morning blood sugar was 147 and I gained 2 pounds. I have a theory about that. First, muscle weighs more than fat and second, the day before was my “off” day. I was told to skip one day a week to trick my metabolism. I think all it did was tell my body, “hey, fat chick is going to feed me today”. Although I really did not eat too much but we did have a potluck at church last night and I may have went back for seconds. I am not giving up! I also have been drinking a lot more water. Third theory, retaining water – maybe. Today I had one cup of coffee and then water, water, water all day long. I really don’t have time to drink anything else if I’m going to get the required amount of water in for the day.
