One week in

Tuesday, March 26, 2013

So far so good. I am on my 7th day of "extremely" healthy eating. I had my 3 day let down, body adjusting to NO sugar or bad food.
It hasn't been that bad, as far as cravings I had none. Summer fruits help that. If this diagnosis happened in the Winter, it may have been rough, because I am not a fan of apples.
As I move along, I will try out different things as far as what a person in my condition can eat. I am a cook so I will dally in some unique cuisine I can put together.
I know this is a lifetime commitment so I need to make it enjoyable. I am giving up a lot of foods that I love, not just for this but for in the future, maintaining my health and body.
Ok I know I am only 1 week in, but I have to ask all other diabetics, who didn't get serious about fixing it. "Why"? Didn't the diagnosis in itself, scare you into doing something about it? Seriously. Ok I am going by some of my friends with the disease. They still eat unhealthy. I don't get it. It scared the living daylights out of me!! I don't want it!! Weight loss # 1 factor. Heck I only have 56 lbs to lose. So until I see the Dr. in June, I won't have weight loss results and of course the results of what I am doing as far as my numbers. But here's hoping it's good.
Going to the store this morning, and more label reading. But I tell ya, I want to be the go to
person when it comes to what is what when it comes to healthy eating. emoticon

    Have you tried apples with a little cinnamon and nutmeg on them? Or cooked with some Orzo and cranberries as a side dish? emoticon

    Maybe you haven't found an apple variety that you like.....

    I've decided that my favorite is Pink Lady, but Cameo is really tasty, and just recently I've tried Lady Alice (never heard of them before, but they were delicious!) and another one, the name escapes me right now, but Oh! It was SO good!
