Doing good, and feeling fine!

I had my one-week check-up with the endocrinologist today to see how my blood sugars and eating have been going.

I've actually LOST a pound so far, which is hilarious.

She said that I'm doing GREAT, and that if I continue keeping this up there should be minimal risk to the baby. It was exactly what I needed to hear.

Interestingly, she said that she was nearly certain that I'd need insulin based on how high my blood sugars were, before I started the diet. She couldn't believe how I've turned things around. Little does she know what a determined young lady I am.:-)

This is still SUPER hard, but I'm taking it one day at a time. I can do this. I will do this.

My skin has NEVER looked better (other than the zit that is healing from a couple of weeks ago - which, by the way annoys me. I am 33 years old. When will I stop getting zits?!).

Dinner tonight: spicy tofu paneer with peas and corn.
Lunch today was: home-made tomato soup with barley and mixed vegetables. SO good.

Off to make myself some tea!

Go you!! That is awesome! My glucose tolerance test is the week after next, so wish me luck. I don't know if I can be that strict, but I guess I'll figure it out if I'm forced to :)
