When I was first diagnosed I went to extremes with exercise and eating right. Numbers were almost perfect a1c was like 5.9. Now I switched jobs and have gained back 20pounds. New job is a lot less physical. One down fall is drinking beer, not large amounts but I like dark beer and a like a variety. I can watch what I eat all day no problem but at night I have a hard time staying away from munchers. Last check on a1c back up to around 7. It's either one extreme or the other very frustrated!!!

Evenings are tough for me too. I try to keep some prepared snacks that are OK with my eating plan. It's not a time when I want to have to fix anything cause I just want to graze on what is already prepared. Sometimes, it keeps me out of dietary trouble; other times it doesn't.
