Hi everyone, I figured that I'd post an update to let you know how things are going. All things considered, everything has been okay. I have been testing my levels four times a day for a little over a week; once when I wake up (must be a max of 95), and 1.5 hours after each meal (must be a max of 130). I've only flunked levels three times... During the first week of testing I was in a wedding and was traveling to and from home. Fruit seems to be a trigger! Any time I have had a hint of fruit my levels get higher than they ought to. On the day of the wedding there was a stressful moment that coincided with eating fruit that fit into the serving size my nutritionist had showed me; my levels were about 134. A few days later I had some French bread with a little butter and jam for breakfast—up to 170! The worst offender was yesterday, when I had what I thought was a safe amount of cereal: I went up to 222!!!!!! I was mortified! However, I've had meals with small sides of mashed potatoes and was well under 130. Last night I had some pasta and meat sauce and was under 100. Today I broke down and had two slices of my favorite pizza and was again under 100. Wow! I guess it stands to say that each experience is very different... I do have to add that my favorite snack is a cut-up apple with some peanut butter! (I've tested sugars with that, too, and hover near 100 when I eat that.)
So, for all this trouble... I suppose I'm definitely borderline. It could be worse.
PS, one night I went crazy and had some chicken fingers and French fries (I was dying!). Under 100!!!
