Weekly Check In – 10/2/2019

Eleven weeks out from surgery, and here are the numbers I care about: Weight: 320 Blood Sugar: 119 Six pounds down, but half of that is probably the beard I shaved off last night. Still need more exercise, energy is good, high protein milk is saving my life. Blood sugar is up a bit, but...
