Update--better late than never.

Things are going well. Still above 200 lbs though. I still have sugar cravings like mad. Changed med to Byetta because ins. would not pay for other injectable. Byetta causes some nausea. I am really having a problem getting my meds in. I thought today that I need a timetable instead of just taking it whenever. I am going to try this schedule.  7:00 AM Metformin with food.  6:00 PM Byetta then eat by 30 min. After I eat then take the Metformin and Lipitor. Hopefully this will work. Hardly ever do I eat supper before 6:00. This med is so crazy, you cannot eat before but have to eat at least by 30 min after taking it.  I asked one of our docs at work how long it takes for your stomach to get empty after eating, he said 1 and 1/2 hours or so.

I know that all well laid plans can sometimes fall apart but I really need to concentrate hard on getting the meds in every day.
