Low carb for a diabetic, week 2

Image

 

At the start of week 2, I lost about 5 pounds, my blood sugar is the best I’ve ever seen it, and I’m learning to adjust some things.

This is my coffee. I learned that I don’t really like heavy cream in my coffee, and whole milk in my coffee, is where I want to put my carbs. I also notice that if I add cinnamon, I can cut down on the Stevia, just 3 drops. Cinnamon helps to stabilize blood sugar, as well as being very tasty. I put the cinnamon in before frothing the milk, it blends it right in, instead of sitting in clumps on the top.

Yesterday my son Nathan made a cake for his stepmother’s birthday. He cut the top off the cake to frost it. It reminded me of mother, who baked cakes to sell. As a child it was treat to get those little pieces of cake. I ate a few bites of the cake. It tasted WAY to sweet to me. My taste buds are getting used to less sweet. I threw the rest in the trash. It was still just a little warm. As I was throwing it in the trash, I knew I was committed to doing things differently. It felt really good.
