My counselor has suggested that I could join overeaters anonymous. She has suggested this more then once and I have tossed it around in my mind for a couple of months, thinking I could make it a way to get out and socialize more, which I do need to do. But I just can't do it and now I know why. I am not an overeater I am a diabetic. Hmmmmmmmm.
I used to overeat when I was much younger about 10 years ago.
But now I have myself drinking a diet soda once in a while not all day every day. And I have my splenda cookies or cake that i purposely bake to catch the snack or sweet attack. I can look at just about anything and tell you how many carbs and sodium it has. I haven't had fast food in six months. In fact everything I eat (except bread, haven't got that down yet) I make from scratch. I even make my own pizza. I have found I can control the sodium and the food just taste better. Now if I can just get my bread to rise life would be perfect.
I realize now that you have to be a diabetic to understand the delicate balance between food and levels.
What do you think?
