Starting the Diet -- Can't Work the Machine

Monday, June 26, 2006

I have been following my diet, and so far so good.  The diet is so far surprisingly filling, but not at all satisfying.  It is a 1800 calorie a day diet and gives me a meal plan based on the amount of starches, fats, meats, etc., for each meal.  For instance, if it says I can have 2 meats, I take a look at the list of meats (and how much) and choose the one I want and hopefully I have it in the house.  But 2 or 3 ounces of a meat for a meal is not what I am used to.

Kind of pissed off today about having diabetes.  I am not 40 years old yet, I am not in terrible physical condition, I am a good person, I do not smoke and drink only on rare occasions -- I really do not deserve it.

I tried to set up the blood glucose tonight after dinner, but it did not work.  I tried to do it a few times and read and re-read the instruction manual.  I am going to see the doctor again on Wednesday, so I'll wait to show it to him or his nurse.
