So here we are just over a month later and I thought I'd update you on how things are going.
We went to see the dietitian and the kinesiologist/diabetes educator. Have to say it wasn't very helpful seeing the kinesiologist/diabetes educator; but did learn a couple of helpful things from the dietitian. Which were:
- every 4 grams of sugar per serving = 1 teaspoon of sugar
- the 5% to 15% ratio. Under 5% per serving is great. Over 15% depending on what it is, is not. For example sodium. Between the two is okay in moderation.
So we have changed our eating habits. I have been walking a bit. Did not walk last week, as it was so hot and humid, but have managed to walk every day this week and have achieved over 10,000 steps every day since Monday.
What all this translates to is I have lost 8 lbs since June 25th. Not the greatest loss, but it is going in the right direction. I have booked an appointment to have my blood work done on August 27th and am back at the doctors on September 4th. So I have another month to work on it all. I would love to get another 10 lbs off by then, but we'll see.
Eating better is more important that losing the weight the dietitian said.
However despite me not being a big ice cream fan I could murder a hot fudge sundae😁
