I had some ribs with this great dry rub so they did not need any sauce. Kept myself real low because of that.

So no sauce and only ribs and it worked out great. I think if you add anything to BBQ like cornbread, veggies, or pie, then your numbers are going to be elevated for several hours. I had a dietician and she would say that if you only ate carbs or fat alone you would do perfect. The only thing is who wants to eat a stick of butter or a cracker. Carbs and fat were a match made in heaven.

I get to work today, so I eat what the camp lady cooks, except for potatoes. they just send my sugars crazy. Oh wait, so does corn, carrots, peas and Skittles! Remember folks, mustard is much better than ketchup or mayo for usins. (pronounced us ins)

I nibble all day most days anyway, but especially on a day like today.Down here in the South, everyone is so big on BBQ, potato salad is present at almost every holiday meal, so sometimes I let myself have just a bit of it, just lots of high fat high sugar foods. No one in the family on my side or hubby's thinks of me at all, no one ever has tea with splenda or things like that. So i always bring my water and I eat something beforehand. It's hard being around all those desserts. Sometimes I let myself have some.

Same here nobody thinks about me in that way.when i go places i make sure i eat first and i always have my sugar free drinks and make sure if they have water i get 2 bottles and make my drinks.i don't worry if people look at me i have to do me and i don't have any eating veggies and dip or fruit and that will hold me till i get home.I just went to a birthday party last week and did just that and the people that i was with know what i have to do so they just made sure i was ok.

Have fun Harlen. We are having baked chicken, ice tea and fruit, along with a calm evening before I go back to work Tuesday.

She is a very sweet girl. I helped her be able to go to school by watching her youngest daughter until her 16 yr old got home from school or she did. Which ever was first. She is like another daughter to me.
