I had a fasting blood sugar done - it was 126. Too high. So - I am all kitted up with a brand new blood testing device (FREE! From my doctor...), lancets and test strips. I may now stick myself for blood in many places besides fingertips, and the amount of blood needed is tiny. I had to deal with this when I was pregnant with the girls and controlled it well with diet. My diet has been HORRIBLE for the last couple of years. I just love sugar - love it, love it, LOVE it! I knew the time was coming when I would have to take the bull by the horns and start eating less carbs. I need to lose about 20 pounds, too. Since I've been watching my intake, my after meals blood sugars have been really good.
I found another great article on the political situation that we face. I shall be putting my review of it up soon. I am not allowed access to blogs at my place of work. Harumph! The article contains another very compelling argument for voting for McCain. (as painful as that will be...)
Blessings to all!
