January 12, 2016 - 8 days since 2nd treatment - weight

This time was a little worse than the last time, but still tolerable.  I am mainly a little more tired.  I am getting over the cold 100% with a cough a few times/hour.  I did go through some periods of constipation and the usual shooting pains at night but overall I am feeling pretty good.  I am seeing some muscle loss in my upper body, so I really need to do some exercise!

The major issue for me right now is weight loss.  I have lost close to three pounds and as a result I am trying to gain it back.  Yesterday I "cheated" on my diet and had a bowl of chili.  This morning I was at least a pound heavier, probably thanks to the carbs.

I've been trying to stick to the low sugar diet, but I am not going overboard by avoiding all food-based sugar like that found in apples, bananas, and berries.  I am concerned about the glycemic index of 147 with my last blood test that was taken an hour after I had a breakfast smoothie.  Next time I will fast before my test.  I am also going to get my PSA test next time to see if I am making progress.

So far so good.  Thank you all for the words of encouragement!  They do make a difference.
