Been busy at work and other events in my life - but hanging in there and the best part, I've gotten better control of my T2 with Novolog.

How was everyone's BG's readings today? Mine were about 118, which is up there, BUT I'm using to having high 60's and that number is a tad bit more comfortable to deal with!

So hope everyone has a great and wonderful, blessed, day!!

Keep your chin up folks !!!

Due to circumstances, last night I didn't have dinner with friends until almost 10PM and I was STARVING so I had a hamburger sans bun with grilled onions, swiss cheese, lettuce and tomato and bbq sauce, and fruit instead of fries. The hamburger was delicious but my BS was up to 162 this morning. It was definitely my fault but I have been on a strict NO WHITE Diet, and I didn't have the bun or fries, so I just said, I SLIPPED and now I am back to dieting again. Besides, I just got the date of August 20 for my sleeve bariatric surgery and after that, no more hamburgers for a long time.

Maybe it was the barbecue sauce. Concentrated tomato based sauces can make my BG go high and stay high.

It's getting close to dinner time, but my fasting reading this morning was 102. After lunch I was at 112. I did make a fruit smoothie later on and that probably gave me a spike but I didn't test BG afterwards. I feel like I cheated on myself.
Next finger prick will be after dinner.
Edit: After dinner BG was 143. It's been a good day.

Good morning, had to go check. lol It was 117. Beg. of Aug. have to go for another A1C and from all you say I won't have to fast. I know it will be more than 7.1 bec I think I cheated a little. We'll see. Maybe it won't be bad.

I worry about going for my AC1 since I spike out of bed and my 5 units of Novolog is to cover my breakfast (1 unit does that) and the spike. But, that's the breaks and doc knows about that issue. But I'm sure yours will be great and surprise you!

yes 118 is better than high 60s to be sure. Haven't tested mine yet today.

EDIT: my fasting AM was 93.
