Day 8 - First full week!

“Official” weigh-in this morning puts me down 9.5 pounds for the first week!

Sugar up a measly 2 points today to 81.

Spoke to my diabetes educator yesterday; She was cautiously optimistic about my participation on the Take shape for life plan; she doesn't have any other patients who have followed the regimen, so I'll be kind of a guinea pig for her. The initial numbers look promising, but she shares my concern about what happens after the initial low calorie jumpstart.

I'm definitely planning on meeting with her after my next run of bloodwork; I'm going to want as much support as possible going off the powder and onto real food to make sure I don't backslide on the weight or the blood sugar.
