Hey, me too! I’ve been pre-diabetic since 2005, diet controlled.

 

My suggestion, work out prior to your wedding, watch what you eat weeks leading up to your wedding….eat a healthy breakfast and something healthy before the wedding…Keep some handy healthy snacks with your bridesmaids for you throughout the day.  

You’ll do fine.

@NYCowgirl:  I’ve been controlling since 2005. It’s been hard. I’ve had relapses where I eat junk and It’s hard to get back on the wagon LOL  I’m sure you understand…Holidays, constant birthday parties, picnics…etc…..ugh….

 

I keep my diet to no sugar, low carb (whole wheats/grains – breads, pastas), Low or fat free.  I do not eat anything made with white flour, no white potatoes, if I do, it’s limited to just a little bit.  I limit corn…those are bad starches…they turn to bad sugars.  I eat a lot of meats and veggies.  

 

I refuse to be put on meds for this disease. My entire family is on medication for Type II. I know I’ll be on it someday – I’m 38 and managed to stay off of it this long and will continue to do so and keep my weight down with dieting and exercise. 

 

As far as snacks – protien bars, peanuts, almonds, fruits (easy on oranges, grapes and bananas – they are high in sugars), string cheese, whole grain crackers, fresh cut up veggies (celery, carrots, raddish….etc)

@NYCowgirl:  I do eat crap food sometimes.  At work…once a month we have cake day. I hate it..it’s not a little piece of cake, its a huge piece that covers the entire plate….I will eat a piece…but i have to watch what I eat leading up to that and after that LOL  I hate my job for that reason! LOL

 

I limit pasta and breads…but sometimes for lunch, it’s PB and Jelly (sugar free jellly!!!)  

 

You can eat stuff, but just watch what you eat prior and after to balance yourself out.  A little bit of corn with meat and a sweet potato will be good.  

 

My mom, dad and sister are all on meds. :/  

 

I had gestational diabetes when pregnant with my daughter. They told me i had a 50/50 chance of developing type II within 10 years – 3 years later I got sick at work and got rushed to the ER.  Pre Diabetic.  Then I got pregnant with my son a few years later – tested negative a few times for gestational diabetes, but my blood sugar was like 200-250 after I ate….healthy foods. That’s the only time I was on medication though. 

Mine would spike up after any type of surgery too.  Keep an eye on it after you get a surgery done. It’s tough to get back to normal for a few months afterwards.
