Another club meeting today, one Wed. and the GIRLS laugh at me as I watch what I eat, skip the obviously too sweet cakes etc. I have found thru trial and error that I can eat a few crackers and dip, and get by—-my BS was only 145 after I got home.
I have FINALLY gotten it thru my head to just do what I KNOW is right, eat what I think is good for me and let the others laugh at me for quietly refusing their cakes. I KNOW better and I am the one to pay the price. One woman had been bragging about her husband a few years ago, was borderline, had a serious health upset last fall, BS was 500, they went along with the Dr at the time, but since they got home, these intelligent people (?) are now ignoring the sweets again. She took her husband home a large piece of the German Choc cake served, I brought my share home to my hubby who is NOT diabetic, not even close and I don't bake much anyway, so he was OK>
Why is it that some people confuse overly WORRYING, just trust in GOD and you will be fine——with common sense? They keep trying to tell me that because my AIC hasn't been over 7 that I am not even a diabetic! Funny, my Dr sure thinks that I am and is monitoring me closely and I am proud to show him that by watching my diet and exercising more, I can now eat SOME things that I once dared not!
It is hard to stand alone! How do some of you guys handle friends and family who insist that it will not hurt to eat—-whatever—-even in trying to educate them, it falls on deaf ears!
I would hate to someday have to say, "You should have listened when you were warned. I am sorry that you lost your leg!"
