Diet Week 1
This week hasn't been as hard as I have expected on the diabetic diet. It has been a challenge, but in a good way. I'm feeling better and more stable. I'm learning where my sugar needs to be and how that makes my body feel. I'm also learning what I can eat and what will raise my blood sugar overall. It has been a week of learning and re-learning traits, but I'm following the food guide, watching my carb intake, and I am being diligent in my food diary. There was a huge rejoicing today when I took my fasting blood sugar and it was 105 down from 200+ and my sugar after lunch down to 119 from 328+! It is really awesome to feel a little better, but getting used to sugar being lower is not easy on the body either. My eyes have been re-adjusting to the lower sugar, my blood pressure is lowering even more, and sometimes I get light headed when I'm in the midst of not eating at the right time, but in time I think these things will work themselves out.
