So, I am on this diabetic diet. Really it's not all that bad considering I've lost 3.5 pounds in two weeks and the baby is almost 7 lbs and growing...Considering the fact that my only major craving is ice and that’s a free food I really have no problems. It's just that sometimes I find myself wanting something I can't have. So to be "good" I just find myself eating three of a "good" food instead of one "bad" food. I know this should really be stopped but if the proof is in the pudding I have to say a little weight loss to eat more food is not such a bad trade unless... It happens to be cheeses sticks. I love cheese sticks. But I know my limits especially when I am pregnant and already having bowel issues. Cheese is not a luxury I can really go all out on right now w/o some serious pay back from my body. Well I did. I ate four yes four cheese sticks. First off that is just an insane amount of food for a snack, second it would mess with any non-pregnant persons regularity let alone a pregnant persons, and third come on do I have no self control?! So what was my solution oh yeah this is good. I ate a whole lb. of strawberries to counteract the probable side effect the cheese would have. I wasn't hungry I'm not supposed to eat a ton of fruit and a whole pound? Really Niki was it necessary? Yes, yes it was. I spent the entire day in and out of the rest room but if I hadn't had those strawberries I can only image how many days vacation I would of had from that very room to only be in there a whole day anyhow! . My body could not make up its mind. I could just feel the internal struggle; strawberries or cheese, strawberries or cheese? I think I have learned my lesson. Next time I will stick to the ice. It tastes better there is zero guilt and there are no side effects.
