His blood pressure is back down, his potassium is up from a dangerously low level, and he's in good spirits (fractures and all!).
I sent a link to mom about "aspartame and MS" and she called to give me her loving shoulder to cry on. Aren't parents great. :) She is swearing off aspartame too. She took a couple of photos of dad with his broken nose but couldn't figure out how to use the dock to get them off of the camera. That's ok, I don't really want to see dad all banged up like that anyway!
Oooh, I watched a show last night about this couple who were challenged to lose weight before their wedding. It was some intensive workouts like on The Biggest Loser. The instructors scolded the couple on the second phase of the challenge because they were supposed to up their calories but they didn't do it for fear of gaining. This put them into a stall! That makes me wonder if all the slowness I've been experiencing might be because I'm not eating enough (not the first time I've wondered that). So, I think I will try going back up to 20 carbs a day for awhile and see how that works out. I've been going ultra-low lately but it's not only tough, I haven't really been losing faster either.
[ 3.5 ] second to last piece of LC cheesecake
[ 0 ] tuna
[ 1g ] 2 slices of cheddar
[ 3g ] 3 kosher beef franks
[ 2g ] diced onions
[ 5g ] brussels sprouts
[ 5.5g ] LC ice cream bar with peanut butter
TOTAL 20 carbs
I actually felt guilty for eating 20 carbs today ... but the ultra low route isn't working consistently so I'm going to give this a try again. It worked well for 7 months!
