I had a panic attack the other day when I checked my blood sugar, and it was 330. I really don’t want to tell you all this; it’s embarrassing, and let’s be honest, this is a blog about being diabetic, so I need to be completely honest with you about what is going on in my life. I have to stop eating sweets. I just have to. There is no way that I will continue to be off the medication that I want to be off. If I don’t just take care of myself. And it’s really that easy of a situation. So, I’m working really hard and making sure that I’m not eating any carbs. And I’m just going to do this. It’s difficult when you want to partake in the same activities as everyone else. My husband woke up on election morning and asked if I wanted donuts. I said yes. It turned into a disaster of a day for me. Not because of the election but because I ate a donut and a croissant sandwich.
So I bought myself a Fitbit, and I spent, pretty much the whole week, walking around my apartment like a fool. And I’m going to continue to do that. And then, I will continue to work on fasting, eating as low carb as possible; it’s going to be difficult because I have people coming over and friends that want to hang out. But I just need to do my best to stay as true to myself as possible because I really want to do this, and it’s been a struggle. And I’m going to check in with you guys more often. I’m going to post more pictures and do my daily check-ins, and hopefully, that will make things better and easier.
Thank you so much for supporting me here on this site, and there will be more to come. I know I go through these phases, and I keep telling you that I’m going to do this, but this is the time that I just have to. I had a goal that I wanted my A1C to be down to like 6.5 the next time I go to the doctor, and if I keep going the way that I’m going, it’s not going to be that way. I can tell you that to take your blood sugar and see that it’s 330 is mind-numbing, shocking, upsetting. I can’t continue to let that happen. I’m not going to continue to let that happen. So, anyway, thank you all for your support, and I will do better, and be better, and record things better, and make sure that you all are in the loop, because that’s the reason that I pay for the site so that I can have support, and if I don’t use it there’s just no point.
