Metformin-The First 24 Hours

So my first 24 hours on Metformin has not been bad at all.

Give me a moment to thank God for small blessings.

I have heard horror stories and was almost scared to take it, but I have been on it for 24 hours now and am doing great. My Dr said not to be surprised if I started feeling more "normal" very quickly. Goodness knows how long my body wasn't processing insulin the way it is supposed to.

I have not been starving all day (I am a notorious grazer, snacking all day, never eating a meal), I have had no cravings, I feel like I have slept better than I have in years, I have more energy than I have in a long time. Honestly, it just feels good.

AND-I got on the WiiFit like I have been every night for the past 3 nights. I swore I would use it every day if I got it. I used it ONCE. The next time I got on it (Wednesday), the WiiFit guy told me it had been 140 days since I had been on it.


So from Wednesday to Thursday I lost no weight. Not a big shocker. It was just one day.

I get on tonight and am down 4.2 pounds.

Don't get ahead of me, I know weight fluctuates, but I am really trying to be consistent, weighing in every night at the same time, at least 3 hours after my last meal. But still, it felt good to get a compliment from the WiiFit guy who lives in my Balance Board.

I'll keep you posted on how the Metformin saga goes.

Glad to hear the Met. is treating you well so far - fwiw, I've heard a few people say that they lost weight a little more easily once they were on Met - so who knows - maybe that will be a side effect for you too?

Anyway - have a great weekend!
