I'm wrapping up a long stay at my daughters. (2 months) she had a baby and needed and I wanted to give her help. Anyway I stayed on my low carb gluten free diet, kept my #'s within range and even lost a few pounds!
I did it by reminding myself that I'm not ON a diet, but that this IS my diet. It wasn't always easy, they don't eat this way, and I took some teasing from my son in-law, but darn, after 10 years I may have finally got it!
So take heart. IT CAN BE DONE!
Blessed Be

Congratulations. Once I knew what foods were doing to my blood sugar and the damage I have suffered it was easy to stop eating the high carb starchy foods. I found by testing before and after each meal helps keep me focused. Knowing if I eat a certain food it will spike my blood sugar 100+ points keeps me from eating them.
