I have to say thank you because this group has helped me a lot. Two weeks ago when I was leaving on vacation, I ate right and exercised but I had a reading of 122 and was starting to freak out a bit as my readings are usually between 85-95. Then, I remembered a few people talking about how stress can affect our readings. I had my grandsons here and was running around keeping them busy while preparing for a 12 day trip which included 4 days of driving with my daughter and 3 grandsons. I was quite stressed and my numbers showed it that day and the day we left the resort to return home. I decided not to worry too much about the numbers on those two days as I did great otherwise.
I returned home safely with only 4 moderately high readings (both at the beginning of our travel days) and no weight gain. I exercised daily (15K steps a day), swam and had fun with my immediate and extended family. I actually ate well keeping my carbs down and it was awesome not having to deal with insulin.
Thank you all for your help.
