Dramatic lead photo.

(Dramatic.)

Joslin/TrialNet yesterday.

Jack just random BG. (Always normal. Thanks, teplizumab.)

Bigfoot OGTT. One surprise = ramped-up TrialNet preliminary health questions:

What is your current insulin regimen? (Uhhh, none.)

Who is your endocrinologist? (It’s just you guys.)

Numbers:

Fasting: 108 mg/dL (didn’t check Verio. February: 103)

Sudden onset squiggle-vision. Glucose making squiggle floaties in eyeballs? Psychosomatic. Or not? Really think see something.

We watched QUIZ SHOW. The whole time I was wishing I had remembered TALENTED MR. RIPLEY. <--note to self for next time.

Begin headache/woozy/think maybe low?

Two hours post: 212 mg/dL (didn’t check Verio. February: 276. Oh my gosh I’m getting better.)

Mmm.

Snack: peanut butter graham crackers in attempt prevent rebound hypo. Nomnomnom. Then walk —> Newbury Street lunch/backpack shopping Patagonia.

Walking, walking, chatting, feet feel kinda weird/itchy but no hypo feeling. Then familiar uh-oh feeling swamp over Bigfoot.

Three hours post: 55 mg/dL. (No need describe lunatic feeling of drink/bathe in Jimmy Carter milkshake @Boloco. Nick of time.)

Sigh for all that jazz.

Even my hand just looks like blehhh.

But then…

We started our Whole 30 last night at dinner. I am happy! We have a fun cohort in a secret (not so secret) Facebook group all starting approximately together. You can play along!

((crickets))

One person's dinner selection.

One person’s dinner selection. I like all of these things, but normally with a glass of alcohol.

It took us so long to get it all together that it was this dark by the time we sat down. LIKE REAL CAVEMEN.

And more salmon.

And more salmon for breakfast.

I will probably mostly over-post about Whole30 for the next 29 days. It will not be very diabetes-ish. Example of W30 fascinating observation: I noticed that I am not hungry, but am very drinky. I like the option of a gin and tonic at this time. (4:33pm.)

I noticed someone I know subscribed to my posts, so hello, and please let’s not talk about this in public or discuss it with anyone in my family.
