Yup, follow Jeannie's advice Nan. I did and I'm down 37 pounds since last July. My numbers are well down too.
In my case, I just stopped eating potatoes, bread, pasta (all the white stuff) and sweets -- anything starchy or sugary. Haven't counted anything except the melting poundage :)
If you follow the link in my post about the 'Low Carb Bread', you'll find a forum devoted to low-carb diets of various types. Lots of OK food lists and recipes too.
Nan, I wish I had your blood sugar levels - WOW! Mine run between 84-284. The higher is for when I'm really stressed out. Mine have finally come back down to normal levals which fall around 80-125. I know I need to loose the weight to. I've packed it back on since my surgery in Feb. 09.

Pogonia, you should really get tested for Diabetes. There is a 2-3 hour test that is done at the lab. That will really tell you if you have diabetes or not.
