Forgive me please.

Tuesday, August 02, 2011

The title is directed to me - I haven't been posting many blogs lately, and I'm just wanting myself to forgive me for this.

My doctor now believes I am pre-diabetic. My grandma was diabetic, so I know it is in my blood line. I won't want to be diabetic, but DUH - who does?!? I have a second blood test on Monday - one that I need to fast for. That's no problem for me. What WILL be a problem for me is to go down on the breads I eat. I do not consider myself a vegetarian (even though I do not eat meat), I consider myself to be a BREADitarian. That will be a struggle to work through.
My doctor did remind me that bread and other carbs are often loaded with sugar. I hope I will be okay. I truly hope I will be okay and get through this.

    Hi Dawnuh! You are a "breadaholic", but you can do it...just don't beat yourself up over it...I hit the numbers for Diabetes type 2. It runs in my family...it took me a long time, but my numbers are finally going down so I know it can be done...

    Keep me updated, sister. I'm praying it all comes out O.K. I had ONE test that showed possible pre-diabetes, but all since then still have me in the normal range.

    There are breads that are not too fatten,like weigh watcher bread,breads low in calorie are just as good.My son is diabetic,he was diagnosed at age twelve...that was shocking.But we worked at it,he is now fourty married with children.
