That Darn Sweet Tooth...

Guess what I did yesterday y'all?  I ate a bowl of ice cream.  Butter pecan ice cream.  I figured the pecans cancelled out the butter.  And on Tuesday... I ate a bear claw.

I had a check-up yesterday morning and I've LOST two pounds!  The nurse asked me if I was eating ok.  Uh, no.  Not really.  I told her that it's this stupid diabetes diet.  I can't eat things like ice cream and Little Debbie cakes, instead I'm eating broccoli and carrots.  She said, "Well the baa-bee needs broccoli and carrots. *insert cheesy grin here*".  To which, I said (in my mind)... "Well, Mama needs ice cream and Little Debbie cakes." Then I really did insert my own cheesy ass grin right back.  I mean how am I supposed to gain weight when all I'm eating is low-fat, low-calorie, lean meats only!, no sugar, full of bran/fiber, make me go poop every 5 minutes foods?  Please explain.

So here's the dealio...  I'm still avoiding excessive sugar intake, but I'm going back to eating REAL FOOD.  In fact, this morning I'm eating a sausage biscuit for breakfast.  I don't want to harm myself or my baby, but losing weight is not the goal here.  Not to mention that before they gave me this new diabetic diet to follow, I was feeling fine.  I had one instance of having some flashes in my vision, but other than a little fatigue, felt fine. Since counting all these calories ('cause I'm supposed to be stuffing in 2,200 calories every day!) and carbohydrates, I've been feeling more tired and less active.

I'm almost to the end of the pregnancy (32 weeks this week!!) and I don't want to go backwards.  My total weight gain now is only 8 pounds.  I am not happy about this.  I wasn't really happy two weeks ago when the total was only 10 pounds, but 10 pounds sounds better than only 8!!
