Tracking - a new perspective

Wednesday, November 07, 2012

On the weekend I met a young insulin dependent diabetic woman.
She was talking about how she has to mentally calculate the impact of all the food she eats on her blood sugar. All day - every day. She talked about how she would love a cure to be found so she will not have to do this for the rest of her life. . . .and how sometimes she just wants to take a break from keeping tabs on her food.

I realised that she is mentally tracking her food - maybe not calories, protein etc, but certainly sugars and carbs.

I hated tracking, and am really enjoying trying a new way. I can take a break from tracking, and if it doesn't work - I can take it up again.

I am so fortunate!
This other woman does not have that option.

    I'm one of those people who "has" to track . . . because if "I'm" not tracking my body is anyhow!!

    Oh well. We all have different stuff to manage . . .
