I have committed to getting my A1C down to 6.5 from 7.9. I am eating totally different than before. Mostly vegetables, a little protein, some fruit, some dairy, almost no wheat. I have to test myself about 10 times a day to see how the food works on my blood sugar. Would like to lose 25 lbs in the mext 3 months. When you are a diabetic, there are so many adjustments to make in meds if you change much of anything-food, exercise, #of times you eat a day, etc. It's overwhelming at times for sure, but so far I have been doing well.
Have to be patient ( not my strong suit) to lose weight and eat healthy. I can gain soooooooo fast, but losing is painful, but worth it. Gonna try a OA meeting tomorrow to see if that helps. Hope everybody finds the motivation to do what's best for them.
