Cycles

So, I've been having quite the pity party for myself lately.  I've been so overwhelmed with the new changes that I didn't even notice that I was sinking into depression.

I did figure out that I seem to have a bit of a cycle that I seem to be caught in.  It looks something like this:
No wonder I can't get anywhere.  I'm like a hamster on a wheel!  I need to find someway to shake myself out of this and figure out how to break the cycle.


I think a lot of the frustration is that I have now lost most of the foods that I love to eat.  (The only thing that seems to be left is ice cream!)  I've been looking at the situtation from that stand point; what I can't have, what I am no longer allowed to eat.

There must be a bright side to this.  There must be someway to look at this in a positive light!

That is my goal for tomorrow.  How to turn the negative into the positive!

All reads lead back to . . . .

Wonderful Hubby and I went to our appointment with the Dietitian and I have to say, I do feel a bit better.  This new situation may not be as bad as we first thought.  It may, in fact, be doable.

After coming home, I sat down and started researching gluten intolerance and diabetes.  Want to guess what came up first in the trusty search engine?  You got it;  Outsmart Diabetes (formerly known as the Dtour diet!).

Who would have thought that this new nightmare would have lead us back to our wonderful friend the Dtour diet?

So, it looks like I'm going back to the beginning and do some work to modify the Outsmart Diet (Dtour) to accommodate Gluten intolerance.

Back to the drawing board!

I know, it has been a very long time since I've posted.  Sorry about that.  I've been very sad.

I don't know why, I just have been.  Having real trouble getting into the Christmas swing too.  Although Charlie Brown was on, so Christmas must be here.



Tomorrow Hubby and I go to the Dietitian to figure out exactly what I can and cannot eat.  Maybe that is what has been making me so down.
 
Perhaps I'll have some better and happier news tomorrow.

But I have realized that not writing this blog makes me unhappy.  Weird!
