This sugar challenge isn't playing around at all!!! I did some shopping today as my surgeon and my dietitian want me to change the way I am eating and what I am eating because of some things that showed up in my EDG, my Colonoscopy, and the Pill Camera that I swallowed. The two of them met last week and I met with Miss Beth, my dietitian and we went over things and I do understand everything but it is so EXPENSIVE to eat the way that they want me to eat. All I can do is the best that I can with the limited funds that I have at this time. I know it will only get better as well as me getting better!!!
I was reading the labels today with even more intensity and putting so many things back on the shelf that I used to eat because of the sugar content. That hidden sugar content!!! Tell me how in the world can there be sugar in greens? I don't get it and I love greens but I don't like the fresh greens. It appears that I will have to S L O W L Y integrate the fresh greens into my eating plan and perhaps I will learn to like them. All I can say is WOW!!!!
Tomorrow brings a new day and my time to contact the VA Hospital and be heard and I am looking forward to that and it can only bring about some good change for the veterans. I will come up with a Plan B by God's Grace to keep me from going into another downward spiral. Thank You, Lord, for Plan B's should I need it!!!
