This is one of the toughest weeks of the year for me…facing all the food at our annual family Thanksgiving reunion. I truly love my family, and unfortunately, I love the food too! Thanksgiving over the first 52 years of my life were celebrated with Family, Fun, Fellowship and of course FOOD! the last 2 years have been very different. It's hard because if I give in and over eat, I'll suffer for it physically and feel guilty at the same time. If I don't give in, I'll ultimately feel better physically, but I can't help but experience a real sense of loss, not being able to enjoy the holiday as it has always been. Life is just not the same with diabetes. I know I'm not the only one, this site has taught me that as much as anything else. How about you? I've got a plan and I know what I'm going to do. My question is, do you? What will you do to get through Thanksgiving 2014? I hope to hear from you! May you all have a blessed holiday!
