It wasn't you that said I need to change my lifestyle overnight. That mostly comes from friends and coworkers. I agree I need to make changes but I feel that I need to make gradually. I have two important reasons for this. The first is that if I don't I won't be able to stick to it and will fall back into my old bad habits. The second is that by making the changes gradually and one or two at a time I could use my glucose meter to help me understand how my body reacts to different foods and what causes me problems. There have been a number of surprises along the way so I'm glad I made the changes gradually.

Did I mention that having diabetes stinks?? Not having grown up with as you have I can't pretend to know what it's like. I do know that there are a lot of foods that I miss but don't think I have much choice. Did I mention that having diabetes stinks??

You sound like you have thought this through thoroughly. Good for you. You have 2 Perfect reasons right there. Your Friends and Co-workers are probably worried about you. They must have heard that Diabetics aren't supposed to be consuming foods and drinks that have sugar in them.

Ya, I know what you mean by surprises. No, you didn't mention that Diabetes stinks. No, you can't imagine what it's like to grow up with Diabetes. Yes. As a matter of fact, you did mention that Diabetes stinks. I agree but it could be something worse.

Many things can effect blood glucose. Exercise, stress, illness, weight, and if injecting insulin - where you inject it and if you take oral diabetes meds - when you take them and with or without food.
