I'm Hungry All the Time

But on purpose. I definitely have enough food in the house, I just choose not to eat it. And I'm making this choice because for most of my life I have just eaten all the time. I was never hungry.

And now I'm paying for it. But that's okay. It turns out that, if you have a choice about it, if you know that you're going to eat again soon, it's okay to be hungry. It's a sign that I'm doing what I set out to do; I'm losing weight, I'm reducing my blood sugar so I can keep my pancreas alive longer.

And once you settle into it, you can get used to it, just like you can get used to stabbing your finger multiple times a day, or the other little uncomfortable rituals that go with keeping a diabetic alive.
