Sometimes I get so pissed off for things that I know should not bother me so badly.

For example, I am tired of people talking to me about how good stuff tastes when they KNOW I can't taste it!!! I don't need to know the intimate details of how good the cake is, or how moist the cake is, or how it just melts in your mouth!!!

OMG!! I think the next time someone goes on and on and on about how something tastes, I'm going to smash it in their face so that they can really get a good taste of it!!!!!

Lol! You are so right! Just an idea my doc gave me is to tske a TINY bit or taste, and then walk away. Easier said than done, but sometimes I've had a taste, most of all I don't, too tempting!

I honestly don't blame you..being you're hypoglycemic, that would be very very difficult. I work with a guy that's hypoglycemic, and one day him and I were talking about bananas and desserts. I said something about a malt, and he backed up and said " I can't touch that." I said " I thought it would help raise your sugar." He said " way…it'll bother me a lot." I learned more about hypoglycemia that day..very glad he told me. I know that I cannot eat even a bite of high sugar combined with high caffeine in the evening ( even though I am diabetic, not hypoglycemic) because it'll make me shake then. It'll raise my blood sugar way too high for awhile, then, if I don't drink a glass of milk or something solid , my sugar will take a nosedive down into the 80s…ANNE

You need to either learn to let things like this roll off your back, or pipe in with something you eat that you can compare it to. A small sample will not hurt you if it is really hard for you to ignore. You know, you can make desserts that are diabetic friendly, therefore not depriving yourself of anything:)

Or you could just be nasty and comment how it'll look on their waistline, etc…

Have a good day and just keep working on yourself, you are worth it!

Ultimately Jlively, the only person you can control is yourself!

Is this in regard to the cake incident with your in-laws about which you posted a couple days ago?

Do you let them know "I don't wanna hear it!" Do you think they're deliberately baiting you? Is your hubby involved in this?

Oh no, the cake incident wasn't me but I did comment on it.

I always say no to cake since I'm hypoglycemic I can't have even a little bit of it.

Usually it doesn't bother me when people do this but some days are harder than others.

I hear you. It is hard. But nothing they can say about food is stronger than the words you can tell yourself. That your health is better than food. That a piece of cake can cause you serious damage. I have a dear friend that is a dessert-a-holic. Sweets are like her crack. She will go on and on about a new dessert or she will eat it in front of me and make moaning noises. I just shake my head and she always asks me if I want some. I tell her "Yes! I would LOVE some but I really don't want to undo all the progress I have made in my fight with Diabetes." She always looks shocked like this is the first time she is hearing it. At first I was so annoyed I told my family I was not going to be around her any more. Then I realized, it is MY problem. She is right- it is wonderful, decadent, yummy and probably she would sell her soul for it. I am stronger. I am healthier. So I just laugh at her now and tell her a) she and her dessert should get a room (when she is making those moaning noises) and b) enjoy it for both of us and then I will drink my herbal tea or eat my cucumber slices and be at peace. Good luck and stay strong!

You are awesome and a very dedicated tenacious person. I get the same response from people who just don't understand why I cannot or will not eat what they think is wonderful. I know it tastes good, I used to eat that trash. I guess that sounds harsh, but that is how I veiw many foods that are not good for anyone. People are cruel, and so unimformed.

Good for you in sticking with your diet, she will find out very soon what all that chocolate is doing to her body. I was like her. I could eat chocolate morning noon and night until I got the news now I have to work harder to stay healthy and the only chocolate I have now is a piece of dark every now and then.

dark chocolate is the best for you it is low GI and releases the calories slowly throughout the day but it is only healty for diabetics in moderation. Some diabetics hear chocolate is good for you and pig out on it and wonder why they get ill. I have a low glycemic index cook book that lists foods, vegetables, fruit etc as either low, medium, or high GI. It tells you what you can eat lots of, what you can eat in moderation, and what you have to stay away from and has loads of good recipes in it.
