I'm sooooo upset. After 6 months of NO sugar and very low carbs except for a couple "woops" and ONLY 2 "don't wanna hurt their feelings so I'll eat just one bite" my glycemic index rose from 5.7 (in May) to 6 this week. Doc put me on some very low grade medication for a trial run, and asked me to lose 5 more pounds. His wife is so funny, she said "she's already lost 46 and now you're telling her 5 more!" She's so supportive, love these two. I almost cried in his office. Guys, I've been so good, I really have, and I'm just devastated. I knew with my family history this day would come, but sure wasn't ready for it after the stress the past few weeks have held. He told me that it was preventative more than anything and that with a little more weight loss I would be okay. So that's good. I'm just stressing over it a little too much right now, I guess. My bp was 110/70 and he was happy with that, blood sugar was 91 and I don't remember what the cholesterol was. I was just trying not to cry in front of my doc!!
I will keep on keeping on, tho, and believe that this is only for 3 months. I did NOT want medication for diabetes.....I truly believed I could manage it on my own.
