So, what do you think made the biggest difference for you? What was the hardest change you made? What was the easiest?

Just wondering and wanting to steal your good ideas :-)

Hi the worst thing I think I had to learn is to well a few things eat healthier that's the first thing. I do have fiber one cereal in the morning and live on that daily with some fruit first thing and just oh yes write it all down. Even if I was bad about having a "treat" also not feeling bad about having one as well. I have also used the ice cream scoop for new things. I use it for my portion sizes for it I want potatoes I have a scoop thats it no more but I do get to have them and living with a full irish man well you still have to have the potatoes cooking. But it was just changing things in my diet and using less. I do not use the sweeteners at all I have never got into them if I make something its less sugar and I have changed birthday cakes into birthday cupcakes lol one is it. The best thing is forums like these with positive people to help you get going and say I am not just a diabetic I am me first and foremost . I mean sorry for rambling on but I think everyone has days that go why me and this stinks and a few choice words that we can stomp up and down going @#$ . I have done that so many times since finding out and I do come and stalk the forum not wanting to say anything some days.But I look around and go check out the discussions and then the great food recipes and I do feel so much better. Ok going to stop rambling on now ha . Today I hope that everyone's numbers are great and everyone is feeling fantastic!!
