Exercise does help with weight loss, regardless of what the study says. All that time buying exercise clothes, dressing in them and showering and re-dressing after the exercising, driving to the gym, time at the gym, driving to the park to run, all the time in front of the dvd exercising, all the time on the eliptical, well all that time we're not stuffing our faces!
So it's all about food, huh? Ok, low carb, low fat, high fat. Have they figured any of that out?
It's all so discouraging.
Anyway, yesterday I had to go for fasting bloodwork. I didn't have an appointment at the lab so I know they take me last after all the morning fasters. So I go late, almost 10:00. The night before when I limited food a bit and stopped eating before I usually do, I went to bed hungry. My stomach was actually growling. And I've been trying to eat better, salad and chicken for dinner... after the lab test I stopped at store on the way home and did a shopping. Home and unloaded.
Then I had a bowl of raisin bran. Apparently that triggered a low blood sugar. I didn't recognize it until after I slept a couple hours on the couch. Ate again and couldn't seem to get a handle on it. Went to bed and slept another couple hours. Didn't feel good until evening.
I think there's a reason I feel panicky when I limit calories. Maybe the hypoglycemia I've had off and on all my life is worse than I thought and maybe I can really feel it in the very beginning stages. Now there's something else to think about!
