| | Re: About Diabetes Classes..................
No, I haven't taken any classes, nor seen a dietician just yet....but, I have been trying to do a better job of my eating...at Christmas, I had things that I normally can't have....I did splurge...but I am now, trying to eat much better things for me....I also splurged after Christmas too....I had starbucks or Barnes and Nobles large cookies...like a sugar cookie,and or a molasses-ginger type of cookie...but, I didn't really eat it in one gulp...more like in sections and off and on....I figured that would be a much safer route to take.
WHen I had some large shortbread cookies...that is what cured me of a stomach flu...they were sweet,but, they also had a blandish taste...enough to help me get over the stomach flu! I ate other things too help me with the stomach flu, but, the cookies sort of helped!
I asked about the classes, only because I wanted to know if there are things that they try to literally shake you up about" so that you won't do bad things to your body any more...
Many people at times, have been telling me all sorts of stuff...that is True in regards to the diabetes...and it has done some damage to me....I can't just "chow down" on junk food any more...like I used to.
I have an illness that could literally kill me....and that is something that really kind of scares me, frankly.
I have to work on NOT being hungry..and wanting to binge all of the time!
I used to be VERY addicted to food! It was a comfort for me....I was so "glued" to my foods, that I literally carried junk food bags with me, everywhere I went!
I took them with me to work,and out with friends, and or babysitting etc...I had "stashes" everywhere! Now ,I can no longer be this way....maybe with gum...but, not candy!
anyhow, I just wanted to learn more about what other people do when they go to the classes,and what they learn from them....
just call me curious!
