A few days ago whilst looking positively at lifestyle changes made since my diognosis in aug 2014, had a " lovely phone call off a friend" , to cut long story short she asked me how i have had to adapt to a new lifestyle change regarding my relationship with food. Prior to aug i ate after 10pm , my portion sizes were excessive at times and kfc/ mcdonalds were my fast food friends and i ate when work tried to tell me when, oh and on occasions i would binge drink on alcohol. However the new me that is looking forward explained that the diabeties is making me make correct decisions in regards to portion size and letting work know i need regular food breaks due to condition as smokers i work with can have 10 breaks a shift as its an "addiction", pointed out my reasons for needing adequate food breaks was self preservation and improving ones health , unlike smoking which is anti social. I feel that last few months have me question many things in life such as the previous bad relationship with food and alcohol. Fact is i could say i have addictive personality, always having gone to extremes with things in my life, however personality traits positive or negative wont effect the new future i want to create. mind you since changing my diet subway has become a very good health food outlet, obviously without sauces and water is gradually overtaking my diet coke craving, mad as that sounds.
