Christmas is here...almost.

I feel that in the last week I have bolused for about 4000 grams of carbs. Not only is this my problem, but is seems to be a universal problem throughout the Diabetes OC. Some of us have very strong willpower, however, I am not one of them.

It all started yesterday, my boss gave me candy for Christmas...I cannot quit eating it, nor do I want to quit eating it. I know all of the tricks, out of sight out of mind, have one piece put it up, keep healthy snacks around...blah blah blah. I cannot quit eating candy. Unfortunately, today is only Thursday. There are at least four to five more days of this Christmas candy madness.

I am a big believer of not depriving myself of normalcy, so I shall continue to enjoy my candy and I urge all of you to take a break from your strict diabetic lives and do the same.

Thank God for the bolus wizard. Mini-med I am sending you a Christmas card.

Merry Christmas!

I firmly believe that the holiday season is not the time to be real strict with food stuffs.

January is right around the corner, and we'll do some damage control then.

In the meantime, let's enjoy the goodies!!

hi nikki. i always get excited when i meet someone with T1 right around my age. thanks for your comment.

i also think it's important to live as normal a life as possible! that's why since christmas eve, i've used my newly acquired pie baking equipment to make cherry pie, coconut custard pie, a fruit tart and lemon meringue. (thankfully shared with friends and family).
