hoorah its saturday another 5 3/4 hours and im on a 3 day weekend *does a dance*

well the last few days have been a bit of a discovery. As i said i went on metformin (from now on to be known as met cos im lazy) i started it tuesday....thursday after eating dinner and a diet coke i got the worst stomach aches, same thing happened friday. So i did a bit of research and found pasta could do this with this medication as the medication is lowering my insulin levels. So today i thought ill try a day with no pasta and see how i go. So an hour ago i decided to have a yoghurt and a diet coke - and you guessed it sick again. So now the only common item is the diet coke, which is strange cos i can drink pepsi max with no problems. So will try the next few days with no diet coke - will be so glad if thats all that causes it. Tomorrow i will make the pasta bake out of the symply to good to be true books ill make it at lunch and see how that goes - so fingers crossed !!! So at the moment altho im at ww and weighing in im not religiously sticking to their diet plan. Basically cos these meds i have to make sure i eat regularly and enuff. Processed carbs really cause a issue with it but i like my pasta as all know lol...so i will restrict pasta. i also need to make sure i eat enuff as the meds lower my insulin if i dont eat enuff it can make you hypoglecemia so my diet is super important at the moment but as i go on ill work this all out i guess...trial and error.

Im pretty sure ive dropped at least a kilo going by my scales (altho theyre not known for being super reliant) so as i did lite n easy a week before i went back im not expecting a HUGE loss this week but ill be very happy if its around 1.5 kilos...so we will wait and see.

i am considering doing the fun run (stop laughing). my team at work is talking about doing it - were all gonna walk it and prolly do half the run...its the city to bay so we will see what happens with that

okies till later - ill be back tuesday at the latest with my results
