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.
