As I am walking around the yard I think to myself how long it’s been since I have had the energy to even go outside, much less walk around. It is unbelievable how much my life has changed since I started eating organic clean whole foods and cut GLUTEN completely out of my diet, I am gluten-free and loving it! I am eating a low-carb, high-fat LCHF mostly Paleo diet trying to get my diabetes under control, and so far it’s working.
I tested my blood sugar level and it was 127 mg/dl. Now that may not sound like a perfect number, but it is truly a miracle for me. For example, I looked at my calendar where I track my blood sugar readings, and on February 16, 2014 my numbers where as follows– my first reading of the day after fasting all night was 231 mg/dl, then the rest of day it only got worse– 334,476,434,492,431, and finally 343 mg/dl. I felt terrible ALL the time. I don’t ever want to go back there again!
I love how I am feeling now, my mood is so much more calm and positive, and I am starting get energy and an actual desire to get out of bed, even get out of the house in the day time. It has been years since I have even gone out in the sun, and now I know how important getting a little sunlight is so my body can make its own vitamin D.
I love flowers with all their beautiful colors and fragrances, they just make me happy. I especially love finding wildflowers. I have noticed that now I enjoy walking around the yard taking pictures, picking blackberries, or even doing some light yard work or gardening. Oh yeah, and a big bonus, I am actually loosing weight. I love the new me. Here is a little slide-show of my recent photos.
