I'm not diabetic , yet! Though I have a few risk factors. My size is a big one, family history Blah blah.
Diabetes is rampant in my family too. I was "pre-diabetic" when my thyroid finally crapped out, and I gained like 20-30 pounds in two months, my weight, even though it wasn't the heaviest I'd ever been, jumped so high, so fast, my blood sugar started getting scary. Doctor gave me 6 months to get it back down (I got thyroid meds too...) and I did it in three. Low-carb is so helpful :)
(I probably really should find a new doctor now that I've moved, but transportation is suck a bitch right now :/ )
Eventually, I won't be able to stave off the genetics any longer, but for now, I gotta do what I can. No way in hell I can poke myself daily.

I slept in, had some ACV and ice water, laid back down b/c my uterus is turning inside-out (thanks, PCOS), and just now am getting to my coffee. (no sugar!) at almost 1pm. BUT, I usually have black coffee in the mornings, and don't add calories/cream until afternoon :) (and then at 1-2 have a big-ass salad, or leftover veggies+ protein, OR a snack if I'm having a can't-eat-but-dizzy kinda of day. )

The BSD and the university studies it is based on has been reversing Type 2 diabetes. It is perfectly within your ability to never get it. I'm ccertainly going to try.

I'm going with a giant protein salad for dinner :) I like white beans, tuna, and spinach with some olives thrown on top (I usually do dried fruit...) tossed with olive oil, lemon juice, and balsamic vinegar :bode:

Day 2.... I want a pile of sugar foods. I hope the cravings aren't going to be this bad the entire time :(

I think the cravings have actually died down a little bit today :celebrate2: I feel like life can be worth living even without sugar :p

Got a latte as a treat today - just plain, not vanilla like usual. Still good since I drink my coffee black it feels indulgent to have milk with it.

AND I learned that most of Chipotle's food has no added sugar, so I'll be happy to get a burrito later :burrito:

Waffled back and forth this morning on how I could secretly eat some sugar. But I'd only be cheating myself.

then I eventually had a few pieces of dark chocolate.

can't decide if it was worth it or not

sugar is delicious.

My brain is coming at my from every angle - like "why are you even doing it in the first place" type stuff. It's like a creepy sugar alien is attacking my motivations.

Going to suck it up and keep going, sorry sugar demons.

feel like this is turning into my own peachy rambles thread. I miss the peachy rambles thread.

I'm a total failure because I got braces today and so I'm on the ice cream and milkshake diet. Eeeeek. Maybe once that's settled, I'll be able to join back in. :(
I was eating like 90% sugar and dairy for days and days after I got my tooth out... that's the worst :(

Sondi @Sondi I'm gonna be real with you, I can't follow this thing because the last trip I took to Costco they had Cinnamon Toast Crunch on sale and I bought a box, and a box of cereal from Costco is like 4 regular boxes.

Also my avi is holding a bottle of maple syrup. But I support you 100% and I hope you succeed.

I'm pretty sure if I tried this I'd just replace every meal/snack with a burrito and gain 1,000 pounds.

:rain: I love that cereal..... These few days are such a small portion of my life relatively speaking but I'll be happy to be done (or maybe in the rest of this time I'll totally get over sugar and not need it anymore? ha ha)

I'm pretty much not hungry in between meals now... even cheese doesn't have the lure of sugar. It's so sad! I want to eat all the time because I like eating but I'm really not hungry :thinking:

Yes! It's really messing with my emotional eating coping mechanism. A handful of roasted nuts really isn't the same emotionally :ROFL:

I might try to join you next time! I had another epidural steroid injection Friday and I'm basically devouring everything like Kirby ATM so I'd fail miserably.

Is it getting any easier yet?!

yikes!

I wish I could Kirby-devour things though...


Today was a little easier! - I was busy and out of the house some, and I got some kid-free time since they miraculously napped at the same time so my emotional well-being was higher today = less need for sugar support.

Plus I got a delicious new tea and stocked up on fruit at the store so that felt like a treat :)

Today is OK -- the hard part of the day is over - all the brownies and cookies and nonsense at my son's preschool have been safely ignored. Two weeks left!

awesome job :eek:
Thank you! There were a couple brownies left at the end of the morning when I picked him up and I just wrapped them up and left them there and took my dish back so I wouldn't be tempted. But I wasn't that tempted!
