I know exactly what put the weight on and made me feel so lousy. I would say I was almost "addicted" to white bread, white rice, chips, and many many fats using butter, mayo etc. I haven't been a "sweet" eater, but now I understand what I was doing was about the same thing. After a month of eating a very controlled 1400 calorie diabetic diet, I don't crave those Bad things anymore-at least not right now. I realize I am a long ways from making this eating plan a part of the rest of my life-one day at a time, but I am amazed at how much better I feel. All my life, for some dumb reason, I have fought doing "the healthy" thing. Now unfortunately I am paying the price, but I can still make a difference right now. I admire the young people who eat healthy for their futures. I 've never been disicplined, but I am realizing it's just a matter of choice-healthy or unhealthy. Maybe I'm thinking too much. I am just grate for this past month.

It s a nice 'reward' to feel better. Giving up the foods that make my BG go crazy hasn't been nearly as difficult as I feared at first. I hope you have the same, or better, results as I have had.

My weakness was bread, love it in samwiches, fresh baked, or toasted…I didn't care. Now I dream of "those" days and really watch my carb intake. You are doing a good choice by getting on this site where you will get lots of tips but better than that, you get support and for me, that's the best perk to keeping me motivated. We all here for you…Take care…you are doing great.
