My wake up call

Monday, June 10, 2013

I have had a wake up call. About a year ago, I started to have spells of nausea and stomach pains and sometimes I would even throw up. I also was very very tired and moody. I wasn't fallowing my diet plan then, and I ate whatever I wanted. I never felt full. Seemed like to me I was always hungry no matter what I ate. so I continued to stuff my face, eating was the only thing that stopped me from being nauseous. I could not figure out why I was having so much pain.
One day I came across a posting on the internet about insulin resistance and pre-diabetes. I had all the symptoms of such illness. So I continued to do some research and decided to start eating a lower carb/ no sugar diet. Low and behold my stomach nausea had gone away, but anytime I ate something with sugar in it, I once again get that burning aching stomach pain again. I bought a glucose meter a week ago and I have been keeping track of my blood sugar. I can say that my numbers matched up for someone with pre-diabetes. When I eat bad carbs or sugar my blood sugar is in the diabetic range. If I eat healthy then it's an ok number, not ideal, but I'm working on it.
And that is my wake up call. No longer am I going to ignore my body and treat it like trash. I don't want to go back to the way I was eating, I really can't or I will get sick again. I started back in March and have lost 20lbs since I started eating low carb/no sugar.

    After loosing 40lbs my numbers went back to normal... But this was three years ago, it gained all the weight back and then some after having another baby. The nausea is mostly away but I still get sleepy after eating certain things.
