I'm GETTING IT! [Sep. 11th, 2007 - 11:13 am]
Diabetics with Binge Eating Disorder or COE


[state of mind |ecstaticecstatic]

for some strange reason, something clicked in my head, and i'm GETTING IT. for almost two weeks, i've been keeping my blood sugars to a normal level (with medication and insulin). I mean, picture perfect normal levels -- between 70 and 120 are my goals, and i'm coming in between 63 and 129. that is truly remarkable -- almost a modern miracle.

how? cutting back severely on portion sizes, primarily. and for the most part, i am not feeling deprived -- or depraved! (that was a joke, people!)

and i'm feeling so much better. not as moody, nor as lethargic.

i'm also feeling so much MORE!! it's hard to explain unless you've been there. . . . but a bunch of feelings are no longer blocked, and they are jumping up demanding to be heard/felt. in the past, i would have run from many of them, because many of them are, ahem, LESS THAN COMFORTABLE. giving myself permission to FEEL all this is very freeing -- and exhausting, and painful, and joyful, and demanding. and i'm doing it.

believe me, it's been a loooong journey -- and i certainly don't feel anywhere near "completely resolved"!! but i do feel rather "resolved for today".

thanks, and best to you, too!!
