I'm keeping this public and cut-tagged.
I'm eating everything they say I should eat, but I got this neat set of programs called "Diabetes Pilot" which works on my Palm and my desktop, which is very useful indeed. (I also put my meal plan onto my pilot on a spread sheet. Makes life much easier.)
And I've been duly entering everything I've eaten in the proportions I'm supposed t o have. And yesterday, I ate 1338 calories and 156 carbs, and today I ate 1139 calories and 155 carbs. And I'm not trying to skimp or eat less. Really.
But I'm supposed to be eating 1500 cals and 195 carbs.
Something's off. Maybe the measurements. I don't know. I'm sure I'm eating more of each, you know? Or maybe it's the milk. I don't know.
Anyway, today was the same breakfast as before - yogurt and cottage cheese and crackers and fruit, and everything else was variations on a theme of Shabbos dinner, including tonight's dinner = chicken, veg, rice, salad, fruit. I need to keep more fruit in the house.
On the other hand, Jonathan? Is thrilled. He's getting fruit and salad with his meals, too. So maybe he'll be eating healthier, too.
Tomorrow, I get the glucometer. I'm keeping everyone's advice in mind.
