Pre Diabetes??

Friday, March 15, 2013

I went for my semi-annual dr. visit today and was informed that I am pre-diabetic. I knew something was up because there would be times I would be just so sleepy after eating...I just didn't feel right. After narrowing it down, I found this to occur after eating foods high in carbs. So I did modidfy my diet by increasing whole grains, cutting out soda, and increasing veggies, decreasing alcohol intake and exercising a whole lot more. Despite these efforts, I remain borderline, so I still have more work to do and have to really do more monitoring of my diet and exercise. I believe I can do me, I don't want to have this progress to full blown diabetes--that's my motivation! From what I understand, this may have come about because I had gestational diabetes during one of my pregnancies and that means I may be prone to diabetes later on in life. Well, I'm going to fight this off for as long as I can. SP does have a success story about a woman who was successfully able to reverse her diabetes...I'm going to try my best.

    You can do it! Some diabetes is reversable through diet. Work hard, read some good books on it, and do it!
