Back To Try Again

Posted on July 30, 2012 at 3:38pm 4 Comments

Over the past few months I've been going through a lot. I wasn't as over my last marriage as I thought I was. Well I'm back with a new job, a new relationship and a new chance to try and make a difference with my health.

I've decided to give Dr. Bernstein's Diabetes Solution a try as nothing else has seemed to make a difference. I eat according to the ADA "diet" and my sugars are still out of control. The funny thing is how many of my friends try to be helpful with suggestions about…

Paula D2?

Fasting result of 268, take insulin, eat breakfast, 2 hours later result of 283. Yet another example of why I get discouraged and depressed. Breakfast wasn't over the top. Carbs: 62g, Fats: 5g, Calories: 300, Protein: 7g. All within the recommendations of my dietitian. Next week I'll try something else as maybe I react badly to oatmeal but it's simple and tasty enough I don't mind it for breakfast.
