Monday Weigh-In

Hello All. I've not been posting much for the last couple of weeks. Can you tell that I am completely off-track? After the first week of enthusiasm, my diabetes diagnosis finally caught up to me and left me feeling depressed. I was and am still mourning the loss of the wonderful privilege of not having to restrict what I eat. This resulted in a rebellious series of binges. I am too ashamed to photograph my binges. So, no posts either. They weren't that bad really - except for two days, but I felt a great amount of shame eating carby food that I should be avoiding.

Last week, I got my blood glucose monitor and have been checking my BG 4-5 times a day. My blood glucose is serious crazy and out of whack! It's all over the place. In the last 5 days, it has varied from 93 to 238. Normal range is below 100 or 110 (depending on who you ask) when fasting, and around 140-ish a couple of hours after a meal. And a crazy thing happened this morning. When i checked my BG two hours after dinner yesterday, it was 122. This morning, it was 149. How the hell does that happen? There probably is a reason that I don't know about. Sigh!

Weighed in this morning at 221.0 lbs. Slightly up, but totally understandable given last week. Anyway - it's Monday and the first of a new month. This means that it's a great day for a re-start. Here is what my month looked like:
Purple stars for eating well and Silver starts for exercising. 10 days of exercise and 16 days of eating well. Notice how the last week is completely bare? :-(

BREAKFAST
"Caprese" Scrambled Eggs - 2 Eggs with Tomato, fresh Basil and Mozarella

SNACK
Single Serving Bag of Lays Sour Cream and Onion Chips. I know!! (Hangs head)

LUNCH
3 Cheese Taquitos from 7-11. So awful for you, but yummy!

DINNER
1/2 c. Rolled Oats w. Peanut-Coconut Veggie Curry; Sauteed Tofu
4 strawberried

EXERCISE
None

I'm sorry you've been having a rough time--but you're right, the first day of a new month being a Monday is the perfect time to restart! My mom's BG would always be high in the mornings too. Check out the book "Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat for Diabetes" by Michelle May... the author also wrote one specifically for binge eating, and it really helped me turn things around. I imagine the one for diabetes would be helpful for you!

I will check that book out. That title is so appealing. If I can find diabetes-friendly versions of the stuff I love, it would be so easy to do this!
