Back to normal in more ways than one!

Monday, December 17, 2007

Sunday I had a bad scare my blood sugar was 285 and it hasn't been that high since I was diagnosed as a diabetic. I am very aware of what this diease can do. It is my mission to stay in range with what the doctors sugessted. I couldn't exercise because we had company and my mom cooked us a pre-christmas dinner and my sister came in from out of town. I didn't over eat by any means, but I do think the fact that I ate about 8:00 had something to do with it.

Praise God this morning it was normal for a (Me) diabetic. 86 I have come across many that are on pills, insulin or both. The thought of me having to stick needles in my skin makes me want to vomit and faint. So by the help of God I will stay on top of this. After all, if I don't do my best to stay in range and do the best that I can not only will I suffer but my kids and husband and all those who love me. I am not going down like that.

I do relize that I am human but no way am I going to use that as a ticket for me to gorge on everything I see. Moderations is key along with prayer.

I am on a diabetes busting mission.

Update on my hd obessions with sweets, cookies, donuts so far he has not brought anything sweet except candy. May be a cookies party has ended. I sure hope so--Hey a girl can have dreams.

Battles Raging

Friday, December 14, 2007

It has been two weeks straight that my hd has brought sweets in the house. I have been put to the test over and over again. I have come to the conclusion that he has an obsession with sweets. Of course he will not admit to that\. Last night he brought some donuts. I gave him that look. (Why did you do that to me???? look.) I ask him if he really was ok with my weight loss? The truth is I am not stopping no matter how he feels I am dong this for me and my health-- he said that I wants me to continue losing weight. I ask him was he trying to ruin my efforts? He reassured me that he wasn't. But in my mind and eye he is. I am sooooooo glad that donuts are not a problem for me. I guese I am just writing this to help me with my emotional eating and it is a part of my healing. I told him again that I was writing about him in my blog. I know deep inside this will not stop him from buying sweets. This is for me to talk or vent etc. The truth is power lies within me (with the help of The Lord and the spirit of God that is in me) I can choose to listen to the voice that says eat them or I can listen to the voice of reason that tells me to resist. I did once again resist. And again I am greatful to God for his power in my life to overcome. Tempation and one more test and trail I will have to encounter even at the hand of my hd and family. Oh yea when I ask him about the sabotage factor he called my two teenagers (who can eat the brick off the house) to come and help him eat them. So I guese that is some sort of victory in itself. I can not lie they looked wonderful but this diabetes is not giving up either. I shall not die by the fork, but I shall die trying with my very last breath. I am making a big deal about this because diabetes can be a killer if you let it will ruin you. I am not going to let that happen to me without a fight!!! If you're interesed in seeing what uncontrolled diabetes can do-- you can goggle "diabetes complications" and you will see for yourself. Until then the battle is on going with the Lord as my helper.

A time of testing. I passed!!!!

Monday, December 10, 2007

This morning was was ver busy. We had to take our little boy to the dr. out of town. On our way he always wants a sausage biscuit and hash brown. Well today he decided that he wanted to wait and eat them. Can you guese who stuck a biscuit under my nose. MMMMMMMMMM the smell of those biscuits. I paused for a woment ..... and gave it some thought but then I said no thank you to my hd. Next I was offered a hash brown.My mouth started to water. I told him that I was trying to do right and that he wasn't helping tempting with those kinds of foods. Later my little boy decided he would eat them after all. Another victory for me!!!! I told my hd that I was going to post in my blog about him tempting me so. Thank you Jesus!!! The old me would have devoured both biscuit and hash brown.

    Hey, Congratulations, Do. I wasn't that good. I went to a supermarket that sells pizza and I got a pepperoni, canadian bacon and pineapple pizza. Thank God, I only go there about every three or four months.

The new me next year!!

Wednesday, December 05, 2007

That picture is a picture of what I will strive for. It has been a rought road the past few weeks. I am making a vow to myself and my family espcially my mother and sister. They brag on how I fight this disease. I must admit that I have slipped for the past few weeks. There is no reason to blame this on the holidays. I for one know what diabetes will do to you if you don't fight against it. And I am a fighter. My goal is to put diabetes on the run. So inspite of the holidays the fight is still on. No way I am giving up. I have saw first hand twhat this disease can do. That is just not an option for me. I have come too far to stop now. The enemy is defeated and Christ is my helper with him I can go forward.

Of course I have found some more info. If anything this disease has caused me to be a researcher to help myself and other who want help on how to step on top of their diabetes.

An estimated seven percent of the U.S. population has diabetes, which in recent years has been linked to diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, due to insulin resistance in the brain. While there's no cure for diabetes yet, doctors say maintaining a proper diet is one key to controlling the condition.

Taking advantage of natural compounds in foods is an alternative to prescription drugs, says Richard A. Anderson, lead scientist at the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Beltsville, M.D. "We shouldn't be relying on drugs if we can alleviate or prevent diabetes simply by changing our eating habits."

Food Fixes

Add these sugar-stompers to your shopping list:

Tea Chemicals known as polyphenols found in black, green, and oolong teas boost insulin activity.
Cinnamon Less than half a teaspoon daily increases sugar metabolism in fat cells.
Buckwheat Traditionally used to make soba noodles, buckwheat contains chemical compounds that reduce blood sugar levels.
Cherries Contain chemicals called anthocyanins that increase insulin production.
Guava Extracts from apple guavas lower blood-sugar levels.
Cocoa Decreases insulin resistance.
