Hi new friends,
I hope you all are doing well. I just started on 2 new insulin's and this is the first day in months that my readings are all under 10 as they are supposed to be! I can't even tell you how happy i feel for this. I was sick all the time and today i feel back to my old self again. Just feel so very much better and what i really notice sitting at the computer is the shakes have gone :) What a relief!
I am trying really hard with my new diet. Lots of fruits and veggies and no more carbs thru the roof! I thought nothing of eating a huge submarine sandwich,lol. Can you imagine all those carbs at one meal? I must have been out of my mind! And i used to smoke a pack a day, every day and i believed i would die with a smoke in my hand. Today, i have the odd smoke but not on a regular basis. When my son goes out i sneak a smoke. I know - that bad habit has to go, too. A little at a time. Every day a new day with lots of new chances to be a better person.
I need help with my diet. I don't have much money to go buy a book like i wish i could. Is there a good Diabetes diet and meal plan online that you would recommend i could follow? I collect recipes online to make new and interesting meals for my adult son but i am not so sure how to follow a lower-carb diet such as we Diabetics need.
If you have any suggestions that would be great :)
Have a good night all, Denise in Ontario, Canada
