Apologies for not blogging last week spent two days thinking should I blog or not, had plenty to say but most of it negative so decided that I would give it a miss, I will combine these two weeks without hopefully the negatively.
I have felt frustrated because of my hip injury and not being able to exercise for the best part of these two weeks, I had an ache in my hip so decided rightly to stop exercise to give it the best chance to heal. I have been climbing up the wall without going out for a run or the X-box fitness. I am worried about starting again on Monday in case the hip has not healed yet. I have spent 40 odd years abusing my body and only 6 months putting it right there are clearly going to be times that the body will break down, I understand that but it's still hard sitting around not doing any exercise. There's still 3 months until the Great South Run so I have the time to restart the training and be good to go for the race.
Diabetes Ground Breaking News.
This is the most important news ever, just a background reminder when I first spoke to Sandra I said to her that the reason that I made contact with her was the fact that on the http://www.ThinkingSlimmer.com they have Diabetes UK as one of there charities and the first thing I asked Sandra was would it help my Diabetes no mention of weight loss or anything else. My insulin is down to 15 units before food and I have to check my levels 2 hours after eating to make sure i'm not having hypo's and to reduce my insulin more if that's the case.
So after 15 years of diabetes I have finally reach utopia my HBA1C is 5.6 which is the same as a normal person (this is also the first time someone has said that I am normal) Now this is just the start I am still diabetic I still have to carry on doing what I am doing and checking and adjusting, but now after this week I feel so much better about the last 2 weeks and about my weight loss in general and reminds me that the Diabetes was why I needed help in the first place the weight and exercise is a wonderful by product that has naturally improved along the way, I have clearly forgotten about why I needed help and been fixated with the weight lose, I am thinking of just putting the weight at the end of the blog with no comment to show that I can put my trust in the slimpod and more importantly in me to do the things that I am doing which in the overall picture is the right things.
I have lost 4 1/2 stone my trouser size is down from 48 to a 36 my Diabetes is under the best control ever I exercise regularly and I have entered the Great South Run in October. Each one on its own is a great achievement added together it makes an outstanding achievement that I am rightly proud of, But the head plays nasty games with me trying to get me to fail or tricking me into thinking that I am failing. I know other friends on their journeys are having the same problems as well so I am in good company, and its not just me.
As I have mentioned the Great South Run it would be remiss of me not to mention my just giving page http://www.justgiving.com/Darin-McCloud I have added a video of me training which is for entertainment as its not a pretty site. Please sponsor if you can it's for a great cause.
My weight three weeks ago was 106.1kg last week 107.7kg this week 105.6kg so I am still in a narrow window which I am now happy with and look forward to the weight dropping off again when my body is ready to so.
