Hello! I am still counting bites! I have been dealing with some health issues... I have Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome. No, I dont have cysts on my ovaries... I have elevated blood sugar levels after meals sometimes which makes my testosterone levels go up, which stops my menstrual cycle. 

Even counting bites is not enough to lower my blood sugar all the time. 

Even losing weight to a healthy weigth was not enough to get me out of being Insulin Resistant...

I have had 5 children and 1 of those children, I had borderline sugar issues. 4 of those children I had Gestational Diabetes. 

Losing weight before has always usually seemed to bring my periods back, but this time losing weight is not enough. 

I am trying to figure out way of lowering my blood sugar and improving my glucose tolerence in taking supplements right now. There are certain ways of eating--low glycemic index, carb to protien ratio ect, that could be incorporated INTO the Bite Counting Way of Life.  

ITs something I have considered. Obviously, my diet has too much sugar in it sometimes, and my body doesn't like it.  

I dont like to make a bunch of rules for myself about how much sugar I can have ect, because that makes me feel more deprived, but I seriously need to consider how I am going to get my sugar levels in my blood down, before I get Diabetes, and so I can get my menstrual periods back.

We are also dealing with Financial issues. My husband is barely making enough  money. Our pay got cut about 500 dollars a month in January or so of this year, and we are living paycheck to paycheck.  Please pray that he will find a job soon that will make us more money and so that we can get along better financially....

Homeschool is starting soon!  yay! My daughter is starting Kindergarten and she is excited! We like Abeka Academy Online Streaming.... saves me a lot of time and they get taught an awesome education from some of the best Teachers in the  United States. Plus its College Preparatory! I have 6th grade, 5th grade, 2nd grade and Kindergarten. 



  1. I see here how you are doing. I will pray for your health and finances. Did you know both THM and Plexus balance blood sugar?

  2. Thank you! I got the trim healthy mama book from the library recently and it was all so confusing The E, S, fuel, crossover etc. is there a website or something that explains it in simplistic terms? :) Yes the plexus thing did help lower my blood sugar when I tried it for a week. :)

  3. Looking at Abeka Acadamy. Do you all share one computer? How many grades? (Didn't want to hog Heidi's fb post. Lol.)
