Another day and another pound up. This has been the third day in a row where my body weight has increased and it has been a total of over 4 lbs in just 3 days. My waist hasn’t increased in size and I can see and feel that my muscles are larger, so now I can say that it is the creatine working as I approach the 30 mark where I will be fully loaded. So there is no need to freak out, but it is a time to work out hard. Now is the time to take advantage of fully maximizing the opportunity for muscle growth and strength.
I am keeping a mindful eye on my blood sugar levels during this period and have notice that they too have increased, but are still staying below 100. If they rise to over 100 I will consider giving up the creatine. But for right now I think that it is all a balancing act and my body is simply making adjustments to the changes. While continuing to do strength exercises I know it will be difficult to give up the creatine as I know for a fact that it has certainly helped out with joint pain that I had. But this mission is all about beating Type II Diabetes and not becoming Arnold. It’s about burning fat while slowly increasing muscle mass to create a healthy balance of reduced glucose in the blood stream, thus reducing the need for the pancreas to release insulin to meet the high demand.
