Yup pretty much feel the same here unaluna. If I don't have some form of carb I feel sick.



Today I checked my bsl. It came back 15.7 . Feeling tired.... no wonder. This is not good. Need to make an appointment with my diabetes educator. Hmmm. Grrrr at myself.

Managed to keep level at 306 today which is 17.0 which is still too high but better than the 540,or 30.0 I started with 10 days ago.Gonna keep bringing it down.I managed to cut my bread intake by half today.I had cravings for cake when at the cafe,they have them in the counter there,I resisted the cravings and satisfied them with a sugar free gingerbread latte.I also allowed myself crisps.So I am finding alternatives to sugar laden treats,I am going to get on track and stay there.Hopefully tomorrow I can get my blood sugars down further.

I am back up to 378,that is my blood sugar level,mainly I am overdoing the carbs again today.I swear I have not touched anything sugary.Bread is the culprit and creme crackers.I have not had the strength or energy to prepare proper meals so have had sandwiches and creme crackers.Tomorrow is a new day and I am going to try harder to make proper food choices that lower my blood sugars and help me also to achieve weight loss goals.I have to start preparing food for myself that is healthy.

My weight is 293 pounds,which is 21 stones ,which is 133 kg.

My blood sugar has been out of whack all day. I started my day off going out to eat which did not help. Then I snacked on chips and had a hamburger with a bun for dinner and a nutty bar for dessert. My blood sugar has been as high as 348 and as low as 62 today. I hate it when it's all over the place so hard to control and I have to take my sugar alot. Hope everyone had a great day.

There is a drug called Victoza it's not insulin but you do inject it once a day. It helps with blood sugars and really curbs your appetite I went from 225lbs to 198lbs in two month's on this.

Both my breakfast reading and my pre lunch readings were 270 today.Slowly the numbers are coming down.I got a letter come today with a hospital appointment with the diabetic dietician on Thursday 14th February.

I have not eaten cakes,chocolate,ice creme,sweets or drank soda and juices since January 1st.It is carbs making my sugars go up that and fruit I think.I am trying to lessen the amount of carbs I eat.Next shop I am buying mostly vegetables and salad for my main meals.

None of my readings today were over 270.This is good.Hopefully they will start getting lower.I ate good food choices today and no sugar snacks,and I am lessening my intake of carbs.
