So in looking at my food, I can assure you that I have eaten my veggies, oh yes...but what is my overall CARB (sugar) intake? What's happening to me?? Well, after looking at this carefully and the changes I have made, remember that I have been 21 1/2 weeks NO processed/refined sugars or flours~and sooo I now am attacking in full force my overall sugar load each day. My neuropathy is resolving. My facial numbness is resolving. My body is shrinking~listen, I haven't measured ME, but...I have weighed less before, but I NEVER EVER have been able to see all the liters and veins in my feet (not pretty, I'd say~), but certainly NO swelling or inflammation. WHAT I am researching is that when the overall sugars are controlled in the body, inflammation decreases and the body can heal...boy is inflammation painful too. For real, it is! Soo now you know, dietary changes on are the horizon for me. I am eating more protein and fat~don't get me wrong. I am still concerned with AMOUNTS but I am watching that load of sugar so closely. I don't even WANT sugar anymore because I feel sooo much better. I can't even describe the differences to you, but they are dramatic, and even that I WANT to exercise is just amazing! God is soo good! He's healing me! And I know that balance is key here...so don't go thinking I am advocating a pound of bacon for breakfast or anything silly LIKE that! Oh no! This sister doesn't eat pork either, no joke. Gave it up over 10 yrs ago...not kidding! So I know I can change. I know I will change.
I only got to the pool once, but did get out and walk and even have daily worked my arms and upper body. No high impact for me...YET...but I sense that change is coming...and it's ALL gonna be good!
