My biggest goal was to get off the sugar. I did that pretty well. I had a few days back on sugar when I ate chocolate during a low sugar episode. I am getting my insulin straitened out and I am staying off the sugar. I have gone out to potlucks with yummy desserts and not eaten ANY.
I know that many of you will tell me that moderation is the key. I get the principle. But, I was struggling with moderation and I like the idea of abstinence for now. I will continue this until January 15 and maybe a bit beyond.
I have been spotty at recording my food. I have done much better at eating planned meals and ontime. I am doing better at keeping the kitchen clean most of the time. I am feeling better about the journey that I thought. My bloodsugars are down. My weight did not respond as much as I had hoped. I guess that will come.
I am still feeling a bit doubtful. But, I feel so much better off sugar and exercising more that if I cannot get the weight to come down I know that at least I will be healthier. (There is a little voice that says I cannot fail. Unfortunately it is very small and very faint. )
