I was diagnosed with prediabetes just over 2 years ago. I had already been working on eating healthier and moving more but this diagnosis put me in overdrive. I was afraid and fear was a great motivator. Through diet and exercise, I got my A1C down into the normal range (from the prediabetic range). I have maintained my weight loss for 1 1/2 years.

However, in the last 6 months I left my old job, started a private practice and have a young woman living with me who had no where to go. The stress of these changes and the change in my routine led to less attention to eating and exercise. I'm pretty sure my blood sugar is a bit off so I started back measuring/planning all my meals. Then I found out that I am now allergic/sensitive to wheat and all gluten in addition to the dairy, eggs and some legumes that I have known about for awhile. So now I'm back on Sparkpeople every day, planning/recording food, learning how to eat with the new limitations. I definitely feel better--energy, etc. and I'm not so congested as I was before.
