I am fairly new here. I was diagnosed Type 2 in April. Got very serious, lost 20 pounds in 10 weeks by going LC, moderate P and F, (average of 80 net carbs a day). Dropped my A1c from 6.7 to 6.0 in 2 months. My doctor is thrilled.
After eating only things I prepare myself, recording my foods every day, and wearing the Freestyle Libre to really keep a good eye on my numbers, I thought I was ready for the big time - the movies. I ate my healthy veggies before going, reminded myself of my big goals, repeated my mantra (I don’t need to eat to enjoy the movie).
From every corner of the room, all I could hear was the sounds of popcorn and carbs being eating. If the people stopped crunching, the dinosaurs started crunching.
I love movie popcorn and candy - my well meaning dad ate what happens to be MY favorite candy while I just sipped my water.
How do you do get over the popcorn obsession? This was a serious trigger for me and I was unprepared.
Any ideas? How do you cope? Does it get better with more time?
Thank you for any ideas.
