    Your carbs should be no more than 45 grams for each meal and two 15 gram snacks. I just got diagnosed too. :(

    Once a person balances their blood sugar it is easier to lose weight. Congrats on your weight loss. Weigh your self right after a shower in the morning, about the same time every day ...that will give you a better sense of what is happening...don't get obsessive as a person always weighs more at night.

    Instead of the wheat crackers...try popcorn ...you get vitamins and minerals from popcorn.

    For a boost of beta carotene, fiber, and vitamin A, you can't do much better than snacking on 15 baby carrots with 2 tablespoons light ranch dressing.

    Apples are a good snack and hard boiled eggs a couple time of weeks. Eggs Are Loaded with Nutrients & lots of vitamins

    Maybe get yourself a cooler lunch bag so you can carry Peanut Butter with Celery Sticks, or low-sugar Greek Yogurt like Fage 0% Fat Free. Add berries as berries have the least impact on blood sugar.

    Whole Grain Cocktail Rye Bread, 3-ounce pull-top can Chicken of the Sea Chunk Light Tuna in Water, chop 3 grape tomatoes and a little cucmber or red onion

    Cheese Stuffed Peppers
    Core a bell pepper and slice it in quarters. Slice an ounce of fresh mozzarella cheese into four pieces.

    Nibble on 1/2 cup of sliced cucumbers for just 8 calories and 2 grams of carb and dip into lite ranch dressing mix...1/2 cup of cherry tomatoes for just 13 calories and 2 grams of carb. . Each medium-size radish has just 1 calorie and well under half a gram of carb.

    1/4 cup of blueberries which has 20 calories and 5 grams of carb

    You want a crajer...try these...Wasa Crisp'n Light.... 7 Grain cracker bread with 20 calories and 4.5 grams of carb per slice.

    Kavli Crispy Thin Whole Grain Crispbread is made from 100 percent whole grain rye...with 17 calories and 4 grams of carb

    Hope this helps you

    For a treat at home...No sugar added ice pops ...low in calories...low impact on blood sugar...

    You implemented great changes and you learned so much about how to be healthy without depriving yourself. Just keep going that way and you will be healthy next year at this very same time!
