Starting over and being relieved

Thursday, February 21, 2013

Well, 2 weeks ago my dr told me if I didn't change my eating habits be was taking me off oral meds and putting me on insulin. So I have been trying to get restarted with the program. I have almost completely cut out drinking sweet tea again, I brought my lunches to work everyday last week and for Mon & Tues of this week. I have lost 4 pounds in 1 1/2 weeks which I'm very happy for. My blood sugar is still all over the place, but at least I'm paying attention to it again. My A1C was 6.8, which is still ok, but he wants me closer to 6.0 or under.

It's been crazy the last few days, my 19yo son decided to take off Mon without telling anyone (this is pretty much a first for him). He finally came home yesterday afternoon, said he was at a friends house hanging out and playing games, that he didn't think it was a big deal and that no one would worry. Well, needless to say, EVERYONE was worried. I didn't sleep for 2 days. I called the tri-county area hospitals and jails, had the police put out a bolo for him and his scooter, was posting on his facebook and mine, his picture and that he was missing. Im'ing with his friends on facebook. I was so relieved that he was home safe, but ready to kill him at the same time for scaring me so bad. He is bi-polar and won't take his meds, and has attempted and threatened suicide in the past, so you can only imagine how frantic I was.

I still managed to eat good yesterday, I had Subway for lunch, no tea. But I did have a sweet tea yesterday morning, I needed the sugar rush to try to keep myself moving. I didn't do so good today at lunch, but I'm ok with it, I didn't order the sweet tea that I so desperately wanted.

Still have a lot of work to do on the eating front, and with my son, but I'm sure it will improve with time. I'm focusing on eating first, then I will add in exercise later.
