I have lost another 1.7 pounds -- small steps add up to giant leaps. My BS numbers aren't coming down like I wanted them to, however. I went back on the Victoza, but developed the same stomach pain and leg cramps as before, so Vic and I have now parted for good. My numbers during the day are OK, but my morning numbers are high and I don't know why. I've tried eating an evening snack - I've tried not eating an evening snack. I have been reading about controlling my numbers, and will beat this thing. But it's not easy. And let me caution you about advice. If you aren't a diabetic, please don't offer any. A person who is NOT diabetic cannot begin to understand how frustrating it can be to not be able to control your numbers. Lots of people don't hesitate to criticize or offer advice, and lots of them don't have any idea what they are talking about. Sometimes I just want to shout "Shut up, you have no idea what you are talking about". But, I've learned to keep my mouth shut and just roll my eyes. Hopefully, I haven't offended anyone, but I have taken classes in health and nutrition. I know what should work, but it doesn't always. But I won't quit trying -- I'm not a quitter and never have been.
