CONTINUING TO LOSE WEIGHT!
This is Day 34 of my journey in intermittent fasting and I’m down 17.4 pounds and practically off my insulins. This is the best thing I’ve ever found for my diabetes and my health. My fibromyalgia pain is almost all gone too. As for the experience, its been great. I continue to be surprised with the lack of hunger I feel for most of the time when I’m fasting. Everyone has been telling me that and I’ve been reading it in my reading about fasting, but it still seems unbelievable for this to be comparatively easy.
CONTINUOUS WEIGHT LOSS – NOT!!
KICKING MY INSULINS
I’m finding that I’m staying pretty motivated to continue you till I reach my 3 goals.
- Get off my diabetic medications and cure my diabetes.
- Lose down to a normal weight of around 145 pounds.
- Get up out of this wheelchair and walk.
Doc Manny (Dr. Manuel Lam) is very supportive and says a lot of encouraging words and that helps. My daughter who has been visiting has been very encouraging also. My husband I believe is finally coming around and starting to approve also. He still has moments he indicates he doesn’t want me to hurt myself doing this, but I keep telling him what I’ve been reading and I’m going to make a believer out of him. I like to read the testimonials by those who have changed their lives for he better via intermittent fasting. Here’s a few links if you want to read a few great stories.
- A man, Vít Šmilauer, with Crohns Disease
- Katherine’s story
- A group of testimonials by Dr. Jason Fung’s patients on his website.
- Success stories on the ifasters site
Here’s a link to an article I read about researchers seeking FDA’s approval for IF treatment of cancer patients. It caught my eye since I worked for FDA for 33 years.
I also came across this blog which is a good example of what NOT TO DO. Check it out and decide right now not to fall in the trap this young lady did. Remember, when eating, eat healthy to feed your body what it needs to be healthy. Then you will feel great AND look great.
Thanks for looking at my site and coming to this page. I would love for you to leave any questions or comments below. In addition, I’m open to new topics to research and comment on as they pertain to my own health and experience living with diabetes. Please share your interests and questions in your comments. I also love to hear others stories about how they handle their own diabetes issues. I will be sending out a monthly newsletter starting in January 2017.
