Please keep sharing your experiences and how your blood sugar levels react to diet. I for one find people sharing these sorts of things to be the most valuable aspect of this board. I take the opinions with a grain of salt, but do pay attention when folks report "when I do X, Y happens". Sounds like in your case the fruit was problematic. When I was losing weight, (I went from ~320 to 165) I found that any more than a couple of pieces of fruit a week would stall weight loss for me and ANY dried fruit would make me gain weight.
Good luck on your journey
