I was diaganosed Type 2 about a month ago now. Like my attempts at weight loss over the past 2 years, I seemed to get on a roll where I could make necessary changes in my diet for the first week or so, and then life happens. My numbers are not so high as some, but I'm only 40 and don't want the numbers to gradually go up and up and up - even gradually.
The same week I was diagnosed, my then 4yr old got the stomach flu and my 18mo old climbed and then fell out of his crib and lost two teeth. The sales momentum at work I had before being diagnosed has slowed way down thanks to multiple reasons so that just adds more stress to life. Then I feel like eating this, or that. Then I feel bad from eating the way I know I shouldn't and then I am lethargic about work. It's been a circle like this for a while.
I don't drink much of any regular soda (pop if you're from MN), and don't eat much pasta anyway. Trying to avoid candy as much as possible.
Any thoughts on ways to manage life as a newly diagnosed Type 2?
