There are many, many temptations that can entice diabetics.
Everything from foods, "miracle" medications, products and procedures.
We all see and hear about them, and some of them actually sound promising.

Thet are called "Temptations," too good to be true.

You must stay focused on "What you know," not what "You hope for."

How do you stay focused in spite of all the temptations that surround you?

Was asked to help judge a State BBQ competition and Peach dessert contest this weekend. Wow was it tough. Tasted bites of this and that but bg never went above 104 I think because in between all the tastes I walked walked walked walked and drank tons of water and green tea. I ate an avocado salad. I avoided the buns, crusts and anything that contained HFCS. I also didn't even desire the "fair foods" that were available during the festival and I was certain something like a funnel cake temptation might trip me up. I was very happy with the turnout.

Often the smell is more satisfying than the taste. I sniff my way through a lot of temptations.

Tempting, yet enjoyable, must have been torture at times.

Torture was the time when Mom and her four daughters went to the Albuquerque Balloon Festival.The oldest sister was in charge and somehow or other she kept making us miss lunch. We started breathing deeply any time we were near food and she woud tell us that it would count as the next meal. Every since then we ask before we inhale.
