No sugar, low carbs= no fun?

I have been on a low-carb diet these last 10 days. I love breads and pastries so giving them up has been so hard! But I knew it was something I needed to do for my health. I had gestational diabetes with my last two children so I have a greater chance of getting diabetes now. My numbers have been high — glucose and triglycerites so I knew that my body wasn’t handling the carbs well.

Most people lose weight when they go on this drastic change but I haven’t so far. I do feel better –more energy and I feel like my clothes are fitting better. I still have my moments of wanting to stuff 50 cream puffs in my mouth, or just have an almond-filled pastry. However, I am proud that I have gone this far. I am 1/3 of the way to my 30 day goal and I will do it!

    I find it humerous as I view your recent post, it went from ice cream to the no sugar diet. I too remember the old ice cream churning of Daddy I also remember Mom saying why doesn’t he chop up the strawberries, he puts them in whole and they are rock solid!!
