Joining the dieting bandwagon

After my trip to the physiotherapist, I am signing up to The Bloggest Loser – a weight loss challenge for bloggers. Why is that?  Well, when I entered the room, my physio asked if I had diabetes, when I responded no, she asked if I had recently been tested.  Turns out I have the perfect shape for a diabetic as I carry all my extra weight around my belly.  So, it is weight loss time before I actually develop diabetes, cause I really don’t need another chronic health problem.

I am going to try out the Low GI Diet which is recommended for people with type 2 diabetes and pre-diabetes.  It is supposed to even out my blood sugar spikes and help me lose weight. It is all about eating the right kind of carbohydrates and staying away from high sugar-high fat foods.

I am saying goodbye to my two bottles of Ice Tea I drink every day and the unhealthy lunch choices I sometimes make like pide and chicken schnitzel sandwiches. I am going to drink more water and eat more salads and sushi for lunch.

I am going to hate every single minute of it, but I have to do it.
