Yesterday I was hanging out in a bookstore reading Diabetes for Dummies and made a few interesting discoveries. First, I’m still supposed to consume 40%-60% of my daily calories as carbohydrates; my pseudo-Atkins attempt to avoid carbohydrates wasn’t doing me any good. Second, I was hypoglycemic at that very moment. Recognizing the symptoms as I read them, I wobbled over to the coffee shop, took a packet of sugar, and ate it. In a few minutes I was feeling normal again.
My mom got me back into daily walks, and it’s paying off. I’m down about 5 pounds since before the holidays. What a braggart!
And no, I didn’t buy the book. But I will soon.
