I really need to apologize for not blogging for such a long time. As you know from my last blogpost, I had a tough time with the diet. I was struggeling and couldn’t really get back into it. I really did try it often enough, but there were lots of temptations and I usually gave in 😉 My daily diet was low protein products, taking regularly the formula, but having a lot of high protein things in between which of course pushed the levels high. My highest level which I took in July was 26,9 mg / dl, and I knew, it wouldn’t be good but actually I was shocked that it was such a high one. I got back on track, but I knew I couldn’t keep 100% diet during our honeymoon. (we went to Turkey for two weeks, it was wonderful!)
Now I’m back on the strict diet with 350 Phe, which is not as tough as I thought this time since I got another kind of motivation: I want to prepare for getting pregnant. For 2 weeks now I’m having 350 a day and my levels dropped from 21,5 mg/ dl (first level after the honeymoon) to 11,5mg (from last Saturday). I’m really proud of this progress and excited too, I think I will get the latest result today or tomorrow.
I’d love to have contact to other PKU moms or moms-to-be to share some experiences… This is so exciting 🙂
I also had a wonderful wedding back in May – It was stressful planning everything but it was so worth it and turned out to be a wonderful celebration with our dearest family and friends.
I hope you also had a great summer (can’t believe it, today it’s already the calendaric beginning of autumn, crazy how fast the time passes)..
I promise to blog more often within the next weeks and months, I got a lot of new recipes, ideas, low protein discoveries 🙂
Have a great week…
