For all the people we encounter who think they're nutritionists...

but who are really idiots...
This blog is for people who understand my plight.
I am really annoyed about having to change my diet completely.
So my blood sugar was getting really, really high so my doc told me I need to cut out most of my carbs in order to bring it down. I can do this. I know it's a sacrifice, but I can do it. The thing that is annoying me about this is when I tell people about it they act like I'm some gigantic fat slob who is scarfing down pans of brownies. ARGH!!!! I guess it's my fault for being so open with people, but it really makes me MAD when someone says, "Well, you need to be eating healthy anyway." This ISN'T about eating healthy. It's about cutting out carbs. That includes fruit. A cup of yogurt is healthy. A piece of pineapple is healthy. A bowl of cereal with milk with a banana cut up in it is healthy. But I cannot eat these things. This is how bad my blood sugar is. Meat and veggies. That's what I'm able to eat. Small amounts of milk. Milk has sugar in it, so therefore I cannot have a big glass of it. This freaking sucks. Anyway, I need to just bear the misery and not talk about it, because any time I speak about it to someone they say something ignorant and I feel the need to ream them out. I KNOW how to eat healthy. I lost 85 pounds before I got pregnant by eating healthy and exercising. I never starved myself or took pills. I never cut my calories below 1600 per day. I guess I am just annoyed with this whole thing at this point and ready to get this baby out of me. I got really angry at a nurse the other day mentioning that my sugar was high so I needed to eat "healthy" (my doc is actually not a nincompoop and assured me eating "healthy" isn't what I need, I need to cut carbs) - and I get mad talking to coworkers when they ask why I am eating just a piece of meat with veggies for lunch. And they tell me I should eat fruit when I'm pregnant. Get a life and mind your own business! You are not a doctor!
Why do people need to comment on everything that I eat or drink, anyway? My baby is not public property. I get to decide what I eat and what nutrition she receives. I am her mother. Get it straight!
OK, I'm glad I got that out. I had to type it and get that down so I can feel better.
Life really isn't that bad, I'm just a drama queen :)
Thanks for letting me vent.
