I used to have that problem … in fact, I was ready to admit myself into an ice cream sandwich rehab facility when it dawned on me… if I don't buy it, I can't eat it. As a result, I shop weekly and without the treats.

That doesn't mean that I can't (and don't) get in the car and go out for an occasional splurge. If it's THAT important to have something I can have it without the guilt. It makes more sense to go out and grab one of something than collect ice cream sandwich wrappers like I'm auditioning for a TV episode of "Hoarders."

Thats how I am. It I don't buy, I don't eat it. Out of site, out of mind, so to speak. My husband buys it for him. I don't touch it. Don't want to fight with a grizzly man lol!

You still have to be careful when eating fresh fruit. You can't eat alot of grapes or large apples, oranges, etc. I know, you would think fresh fruit wouldn't have it's limits, but it has the natural sugar that will send bg high. It is a matter of balancing what you are eating. Have you been to a dietician/nutritionist? They will help you alot:)

Children will normally follow the example that they are exposed to, so do as you must and explain the reason reason why you do the things that you do, especially the blood glucose testing maybe even pricking his finger and taking a blood glucose reading!
By doing so, he will be exposed to that which you must do many times during the course of a day.

My son is good for me, he won't let me have anything sweet. He says you will die, point blank! I have to laugh on how he says that. But he is right. If we eat to much. I have read some things on what fine sugar in junk food, or processed food does to your systems. Not good.

have him tested and cut back on the carbs
i try to stick to 45 carbs a day so I can have a sweet but I got to give up a meal
So now I tend to skip the sweets now and yes it was hard to do but having my grandbaby living with me at the time it was better for her too .
