We probably all have one thing we could try to do better as far as our diabetes management goes. Why not make today the day we start working on it. No judgments, no scolding, just sharing one small thing we can improve.

Im extremely disciplined with my diet, possibly bordering on rigid. I could probably loosen up a bit on my food choices and not fear keeling over ;)

Stay on my diet and stop eating junk food. Sometimes I think I am doing great in the eating department then my better half starts to cook and bam, off the diet. Ya know after eating her cooking for 45 years it is hard to stay away when you smell the foods she cooks. I just say what the hell gimmmie some. I conquered the junk food but her cooking I don't know. Sooo I will make today the 1st day in working on staying on my diet. I hate needles so maybe if I keep that in mind it will help??

i have no back due to blown up discs. Exercising is a big no for me. I cannot even walk some days. In a wheelchair often. However, i can workout in the pool. As soon as I totally recover from my surgery 5 months ago, I will be back in the pool.

I desperatly need to improve the number of times I test myself and need to put my pump back on. I think I procrastinate on changing it as soon as the infusion set needs to be changed because sometimes I hit a muscle and it hurts like hell and then sometimes because its in a muscle, it ends up leaking and not going in my skin. However, when I do have the pump hooked up, my sugars are damn near PERFECT! Why do we do this to ourselves??? ugh…

I do the same thing… really try to get as much site-life from one spot as possible, as I can't stand having to find new real estate. Just another thing to improve on… :)

A simple and GREAT Idea! I increased my exercise routine a bit, and successfully reduced my meds!!!
