Note To Self

Hey Self! When you go back on a mostly-vegan, low-fat, low-GI diet....DON'T TAKE SO MUCH GOSH-DARN INSULIN!

It's only been about 4 days since we decided to seriously give this a go again, and I've already cut my Humalog down by...MORE THAN HALF! Whoa. I just did the calculations, and I went from about 31 units a day to about 13...and that is still too much so far.

A little background...I did the vegan thing for about a year before I got pregnant with James. I did it because my doctor suggested it, because I had persistent sinus infections. It made me feel SO GREAT. But when I got pregnant...well...I don't know if I needed meat, but I wanted it, and I wanted to take the easiest route of "healthy" eating possible, since I had to put so much energy into keeping my diabetes in perfect control during that time. And I was working full-time, etc etc etc. And since then...I'm just now sort of emerging from the haze of new parenthood, and am SO READY to feel that good again.

More on all that later. Time to go update my other blog with more pictures! (If my internet connection works...)

Until next time~

That's the hardest part about being on any diet - keeping the BGs from going so low all the time. It's a delicate balance. Good luck!
