Diabetes And other news

Thursday, December 13, 2007

Lookie.. I'm down like 30 pounds since I last posted. Well a little under. But I can tell and so can bf.

I was diagnosed with diabetes on December 5th 2007.

SO Now I HAVE to take care of myself. I lost 12 lbs just since stopping drinking soda's (1 week) But I gained 3 back when I started having one McDonalds Sweet Tea a day. 44 ounce. NOT GOOD!! But tastes good.

Diabetes is one thing that I do NOT want to make mad.. I do not want to loose my feet or get other complications. Kidney, heart, eyes (I do NOT want to go blind.)

I'm drinking more water than normal. And Splenda in my sweet tea. Pretty good actually. I like splenda. Not ASPERTEME.. (Puke)

I think I'm making this too long. Basically I'm staying within my diabetic carb range or lower. And Eating more protien than carbs. (My Dr. Said I could eat a huge steak and it wouldn't affect my blood sugar YAY!!)

Okay I'm done..

    Way to go! Good job losing almost 30lbs! That is a huge accomplishment, keep at it and Im sure youll reach your goals in no time!

    Sucks about being diagnosed with diabetes, but as long as you are careful you should be ok, here's hoping!

    Splenda is great, I dont really use much sugar in anything (just my coffee pretty much), but have used Splenda before (made really good Pumpkin Pie with it! and it tastes good in Coffee too!)

    Remember if you ever need any motivation, Im here!
