A few months ago, I visited the dietitian in my endo's clinic for the first time. I didn't really like her, but she did tell me something.
"Diabetics have obstacles to overcome when losing weight, like low blood sugar."
I remember thinking that that was BS. Why on earth would lows prevent me from losing weight? At the time, I was running between 200 and 240 most of the time and never really worried about lows. I had them sometimes, but almost never.
Last night, I found out.
It was mostly my fault. I should have worked out earlier in the day. I had a plan, I didn't stick to it.
Well, I finally did convince myself to get on the treadmill at about 11 pm. But, eager to avoid yesterday's drama, I made the smart decision to check my blood sugar first.
One juice box, some peanuts, and half a cup of milk, and 20 minutes later, I was only up to 81.
I waited another 20 minutes. 85.
*sigh* now, at 20 til midnight, I decided my plans for working out were not going to happen. I did some stretches and called it a night.
Grr to you, diabetes. Grr to you for ruining my workout plans.
(And to just put icing on my metaphorical cake, I fell asleep at 103 and woke up at 241.)
