Hello to my D friends, lately I've been wondering do you guys ever give in to temptation. I have been so good and sometimes my numbers are still whacky, telling you this honeymoon period better end soon! Yesterday I was talking to a CNP whose daughter is 20 years younger than also a T1 and exercises a lot. He said oh she's only at 2 units of Lantus a day and eats all she wants. I felt discouraged here I am at 16 units a night and eating my rabbit food along with lean protein devotedly and all I really want is pizza and cheese sticks! I think this girl is on her honeymoon period he said so her pancreas is probably a lot younger than mine, not sure. The question do you ever just give in give a lil extra insulin and indulge???????

I don't do insulin, but I sure have temptations. I used to trick myself by using lows as an excuse to have that (insert temptation here). That backfired one time when I caught myself not eating one night just to have cold pizza for breakfast. Went from 50 to 168 in one hour. That ended my honeymoon!

I gave into temptation in December and regretted it, but only because I went overboard. My BG's went so far out of whack that it was a month before I started see my levels close to where they should be. I think that it's natural to give in every once in a while, though, so long as I don't do what I did that time. I haven't had any McDonald's or pizza in a while, but I have had some BBQ take out. It was delicious and had my numbers up for about a day & a half but it was what I wanted at the time. Plus, because I do most of the cooking, my family eats what I eat; therefore it was a treat for them as well. So, I would say it's okay as long as you don't overindulge on a daily or regular basis.
