When blood sugars fall

Had sugar this morning in my breakfast and its been all downhill since! I just want to sleep and sleep and its not a good sleep! Sleeping from a blood sugar crash is awful. It's like soaring in a falling airplane then suddenly being jerked back to the skies...swooping...plunging...hurling...up, up up ...down down down. I cannot even begin to explain the kind of sleep that comes from blood sugar surging and falling. Only those who have hypoglocemia can possibly know what I'm talking about!

After I finally pulled myself out of the stupor I drank a glass of water and a handful of cashews. I'm going to have an ounce of cheese now and 1/4 cup of orange juice. This with the nuts should stabilize me again. What an awful trip! Why after having this for 35 years cant I stay away from sugar.

Well I have been and that's why this fall was so  bad. Its a funny thing. When I'm eating sugar all the time the crashes don't come like this. Its more of a rundown feeling all the time. When Ive been off of sugar for weeks then have it again everything dips dangerously low. Its a weird experience.

I have lost another 2 pounds so far this month which is a loss of a pound each week for August. Hopefully I can continue this pattern. All I ask is a pound a week! Is that too much to expect? Sometimes I think it is!

  1. I definitely know what you mean. I've been in that constant "rundown feeling" stage lately. Our family is about to embark on a sugar-free/grain-free diet for a two week period. We'll then reintroduce foods slowly. Jon and I have already cut out drinking pop. We'll probably move on to cutting out all the sugars after we stabilize from our withdrawal.

    Good luck losing a pound a week!


Thank you for taking the time to encourage me on my journey! Your comment is appreciated!
