We had a Happy Retirement and Splash into Summer Party for our Elementary School children and Principal who has retired. There was so much food, fruits, vegetables, bread! I gotta have my bread! and Lots of Deserts!!!! Chocolate, Merengue, Strawberry Pie, etc…

I was a good girl, filled my plate with Bread!!! no just kidding no bread I had a slice of very small slice of stromboli and 1 hot dog the rest was fresh vegetables!

I did good, my sugar was 144 when I started and ended was 128! 2 hours later. I was proud of myself. That is confidence from you all my friends and I did good! Thanks

Glad to have all you here! God Bless

It's great to see the numbers because the numbers don't lie. My company recently had a potluck with 24 contributors. You figure each person brought enough for 8-12 servings. I used restraint with one exception. One of the girls brought in sweet corn muffins made in those old fashioned cast iron pan forms that look like corn. Oh my God… I went nuts and had TWO of them! Otherwise I used common sense with the other selections for some good numbers and had a really nice time. I had not had one of those corn muffins since I was a kid and I can assure you that was a long long time ago!!!

I know how hard it can be at parties to not eat everything like everyone else does. This funny thing is, even after my islet cell transplant - when I'm now able to eat whatever I want - I still find myself not eating lots of carbs or sweets. I guess you get in the habit of eating like a diabetic after 33 yrs and that eating habit is hard to break :) It's good for my overall health to continue eating a low carb/fat, sweets free diet.

Great job, i know alot of people with diabetes who are friends would have given in to temptation and would have eaten all the bad things. I know sometimes it is hard to not eat that kind of eat we are all used to. but one must think of all the bad things that could happen to your body if you let yourself go. So you go girl right on.

You must have been doing some dancin' girlfriend to get the BS at 128 after a party! That's great, I am really happy for you and proud that you found the strength within to resist all that food! Congratulations!!
