I am really proud of myself because I survived McDonalds. We went there twice. Once to get my daughter a happy meal and the second time after graduation to get something for my other daughter. Well the first time I I was feeling kind of hungry so I really had to think about it and I decided to get a salad. I got their asian salad which had some kind of sauce on it but it wasn't drowning in it. So that's what I had. I didn't put any extra dressing on it or anything. The second time we went through the drive through. I've been really hurting and I was just thinking man I'd sure love a grilled chicken sandwich and small fries. But I didn't even get anything. I didn't even steal a fry or anything. So I'm proud of myself. But I'm bummed because everything just smelled so good. I know supposed to feel happy because I resisted temptation and was kind to my body. You can take the food out of the diabetic I guess but you can't make him like it. What would really suck is if the salad was terrible for me anyway and my sugar was really high and I'd be thinking well shoot, might as well have had what I wanted anyway. Quarter pounder with fries and a large sweet tea. But the important thing is that I didn't do any of that. I managed to eat yet another salad. And it wasn't bad. Had chicken in it and baby spinach and peppers and some kind of beans or something. And mandarine oranges. Anyway, so I have to ask, what do you guys do when you want to treat yourself? How often do you allow for a treat? And please please don't say sparingly or once in a while. What kinds of treats do you have? When do you allow yourself to have them in your plan? Do you wait for your sugar to get a certain level? Do you rely on your meter to tell you when you can have a treat or not? Do you just skip them all together? I have already told you about my strategy for treats. Small small small treats. My biggest weakness is chips. I don't control myself well with those.; Anyway, I am really glad that I can say all this stuff to you. Thanks for listening to my weird posts. I really am proud of my self-control, in spite of being a little bummed too. I think it's important to address all the feelings you have.
