My Gestational Diabetes Diet

New Year January 7, 2013

It’s time to reign in this out of control diet.  The holiday travels has ruined me.  I somehow have continued to lose baby weight though.  Baby River Joy is 4.5 months old and I am 32 pounds lighter than at birth.  I am currently 67ish pounds.  I would like to lose 10-15 more pounds by Spring.  I would love to be in the 140s when I stop breastfeeding at River’s 1st birthday.

So far this week, I have taken our first walk since October 27.  I have changed my diet to eat whatever you want whenever you want to a controlled low calorie diet.



1 cup raisin bran

1/2 cup 1% milk

coffee and creamer



chips and salsa

chicken fajitas

refried beans and rice

1 tortilla



1 piece of thin crust pizza (about 200 calories)

spinach salad with ranch

Le Croix soda water



2 small chocolate covered almond cookies


Not bad.  Not great.  But, its a whole lot better than I have been doing.  Proud to say that I’m not a diabetic.  Sad to say that I’ve been eating like one.  I want to keep my life sugar free to help fight my lean towards diabetes.
