Default What we eat and how we feel

I may just be making myself crazy because I cannot stand the waiting, and this may be just another venting post, but if I write this I might sleep tonight

I've been on hold with the diet for a week and a half since I had that episode at work. I'm having my blood tested Monday for Hgb A1c and a glucose challenge, I might be diabetic or prediabetic. As part of that, I am supposed to eat 200g or more carbs a day for 3 days prior to the test, this is the end of day 2. Yesterday I ate 1800 cals, today I ate 1650 cals, I normally eat 1500-1700 cals, so really not that much higher. Unintentionally my carbs have been 140g or lower the way I usually eat, because I get less hungry if I eat higher fat/protein content. Tonight, I feel like crap. I can't drink enough water to save my life, I feel bloated, sluggish, tired and drained with a mild headache. At this point I'm HOPING the blood test comes back positive, because then I'll know why I get to feeling like this at times. I'd also like proof I'm not crazy! I thought it was the exercise making me feel better, now I wonder. I haven't been to the gym since it happened either.

Whatever happens, I will be back on the diet/exercise horse soon. I have Tuesday the 20th marked "back on the horse" day. Thanks ladies for letting me lean on your virtual shoulders.

I felt like that too after I binged a while back. We were in Chicago and I ate 2 slices of pizza followed by several bites of cheesecake. I felt so bad it was almost like I had the flu. But I knew it was the food, because I could feel it coming on as I ate. What are you using for the carbs? You might try sticking to veggy sources.

Lizzy, I hope you get your answer soon. Take care of yourself as best you can and listen to your doc. Hang in there.

Had the blood work this morning and feeling much better since my spinach mushroom and tomato omlette for lunch. I should know soon, either way I'll be OK, I think....lol. Just having the test done and over with is a weight off my mind.
