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!
