Since Christmas, I’ve been really determined to find a fitness routine that works for me and that I can fit into every day of the week. Okay, so maybe not everyday, but almost. I’ve also been tracking my progress on My Fitness Pal too along with calories and stuff. My goal is mostly to lose weight by beach time this summer, but also to just get healthier as a diabetic.
While I knew I had lost a little bit and was eating a LOT less carbs (note: I went from 200-250g per day easy to 70-100 this month), I didn’t think about the amount of insulin I would be saving too. I’m back to averaging 30-35 units per day (was up to 50… And that’s a lot for me). It didn’t hit me until yesterday, but I’ve had this cartridge and site in for what seems like forever. When I looked at my pump history, it’s basically been 5 days!! 5 WHOLE DAYS (if I wait til after 4pm, and that’s totally doable with the usable “cushion” these pumps have). I know it’s not healthy at all, and I probably won’t load one fully next time, but I like that it is sort of physical proof or evidence that I’m doing a good job and it shows the progress I’m making, both weight wise and just overall health wise.
