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?

Wait, Paula Deen has diabetes and just announced a partnership with Novo Nordisk to promote a healthy lifestyle and shill one of their prescription medications to treat diabetes?

Color me unconvinced that the timing is simply coincidence.

I can make it!

Yesterday I was in sunshine, snow, rain and drove through a forest, saw mountains and spent a good portion of the evening listening to the waves on the beach. Shhh! It's a huge secret but the Northwest is an amazing place to live and I love it here.

Most importantly I have received more words of…

Sigh...

Posted on January 13, 2012 at 10:43am 10 Comments

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.
