I am almost through my first week of trying to eat better because of my gestational diabetes and checking my blood sugar. I have to admit that I have had a couple breakdowns because sometimes I just want a pumpkin spice frappuccino or a large fry and a coke! I know this will be better for him and me in the long run, but it is hard! I have had a handful of candy corn here or there but over all I think I have done a good job. I have kept my blood sugar below 120 one hour after eating my meals most of the time. A couple times it was in the low 130s and that was because I had a tortilla shell or tortilla chips. I am drinking plenty of water and taking short walks through the day to help keep it lowered. I did get some Diet Dr. Peppers because sometimes I just need a soda.
