I just made the yummiest dinner/snack - lately ive been having PB2 (lowfat peanut butter) and a thinly sliced apple. This time i added some super bitter (really you cannot eat them plain) chocolate chips to the pb2.

Ive been kinda intermittent fasting - i start with coffee, have a later, bigger lunch, then just snacky lighter things after, like fruit or protein cheezy poofs. I think i lost another lb, which is like 1/1000 of what i need to lose, really a drop in the stupid bucket, but at least its trending downward.

Another thing im doing is, i kinda alternate heavier / light days of eating. I dont stop myself from eating during the day if im hungry, but i will stop eating later at night, which might make me hungrier the next day, so it kinda works out, as i get to indulge a bit. But i also enjoy the feeling of eating lightly, which is something i thought id NEVER say!!!

i had been controlling my blood sugar for 4 yrs, til i got this new doc, who believes higher is better~! he is so ignorant, and i don't know how to educate him~ and yes, this is all contributing to a return of my depression, which i had eliminated for 7 yrs. thank you all for your support and understanding~!
-Change doctors immediately. This guy is a fool in allowing hi A1C levels. Tho neuropathy is common, it can also be PAD, vascular problems common in diabetics.

i have a new doc, and for the first time in years i really like and respect her. she lets me make decisions about my health, and is not a 'control freak',, i am very conscious of my body's needs, and have been using licorice to help control my blood sugars,, which is odd, since it's considered a candy, but i found an organic brand, Panda, which is very good for the gut and digestion.
