Not going to let Diabetes win this one!

Sunday, July 20, 2014

It seems the past couple of weeks, high blood sugar has been trying to knock me down. I had tried everything to get it down to no avail & was a little stressed because the blood sugar was staying between 250-400 every time.

So yes, diabetes, you have my attention! Loud & Clear. So after tracking & being conscientious of everything I put in my mouth, finally I have one up on old Diabetes, My readings today have been in the 119 average range. emoticon That's reason to celebrate but only with healthy choices.

Today begins a new trek for me of being proactive about what & when eat as well as portion sizes. Not to mention, walking will be my new friend for relaxing & getting some exercise.

It's time to take control of my Diabetes & not allow it to win & control my healthy. Here's to keep on keeping on!

    Being married to a Type II Diabetic - I am learning more and more about this whole blood sugar thing. We have not had to move to insulin yet....but it is getting close.

    I agree with the cinnamon and nettles tea and also get some bitter melon too for the diabetes because is helps your body to regulate the sugar and makes the body use it better too.

    emoticon Good for you! Make sure you have a plan A, B, and C for when the curve balls come. I only wish I lived closer to you here in NC so I could be one of your walking buds. Keep at it with the healthy food choices and tracking to get better control- I am so happy & proud of you! emoticon

    I'm so happy your numbers are down, I totally understand about Diabetes, my Dad is Diabetic, he has struggled but has prevailed, he turns 92 in October. I want you to know my prayers are with you and I stand with you cheering you on...I am trusting that things will continue to stay on track and you will have control over this situation...I believe you can... emoticon

    That's great you got your numbers down. Try using
    cinnamon and nettle tea as they help regulate the BS.
    You will do this. emoticon emoticon

    I always remember that diabetes is like a 3-legged stool. The 3 legs on the stool of controlling our sugars are: meds, exercise, nutrition. If one is out of kilter, high sugars will read their ugly head. Glad things settled down a little bit for you.
