Meeting the Dietitian

Share This Post:

This week was eventful and extremely helpful for me.

Aside from setting an accidental fire at home, my apartment losing a really good package from Sephora, and other things, I did something a little less…exciting, but still good in its own way.

I’ve had a few referrals from my doctor on specialists I needed to see. So far I’ve seen a my own doctor who referred me to an endocrinologist, a diabetic educator, and now, a dietitian (I also have to make an appointment for the eye doctor to make sure my vision isn’t degenerating). The dietician was the person I was most excited to see, because her advice and guidance more than any other specialist would guide me into doing the right things for my body.

Learning how to eat is important, and she’s going to be a nice person to check in with every few months, so I can keep adjusting my eating, and getting my A1c and mg/dL down to a healthy, manageable range.

I have so much to read – she gave me tons of literature to get familiar with so that I understand what the best things for me are. It’s been really helpful in planning grocery lists, and making decisions on what to eat when I don’t prepare myself the right why. It’s a lot to think about, and I wonder if others thinking this hard about their food.

I’m constantly thinking about food – what’s going to be good for me, what happens if I don’t prepare, if I have enough for 3 meals and two snacks per day, when I want to have a “cheat” snack. If I’ll make it past this point, and what’s it’s going to feel like. I still feel like I screw up each day in some way, but I have to keep remember that I’m way better now than I was in May and I never want to go back to that.
