Coming to one point from diabetes, so I'm in the pre-diabetes stage so I have to make a list of all the things I can have and not have. I know I do have a weak moment or two, particuarly when Christmas is coming up. I love my starch and I love my sweets. But I do LOVE my lean beef meats AND broccoli and fish. Can I have a yam or sweet potato with my steak meals? Sweet potato fries? Or just stick with veggies? I love my rice but enjoyed brown rice. Oh the sweets........break the cookie in half and I'm a happy camper. Or should I go forth of a cookie to make it last all day? I love my gyros, the one that is packaged. I am sure I probably can find whole wheat gyro bread somewhere or am I better off eating whole wheat tortillas? Lost six pounds since my two week/two day last doc visit and today I was happy to lose that much but still need to lose about 80 more lbs.
