I have been working so hard to keep my calories & carbs down and the blood surgar is not going down! I am very discouraged. So what happens? My husband brings home Mint Oreo cookies. I have not had trouble saying no to things like that. But not this time! I thought, "Well, I'll just eat 2." Yummy. Went back in the kitchen, the cookies are still on the counter, so I said, "OK 2 more." Double yummy but now I am feeling guilty. My husband stood in the kitchen talking to me and the cookies were RIGHT THERE! Guess what I did! Yep, I took 2 more, making it a grand total of 6 cookies. There were all delicious and I really needed that sugar 'fix' but I am feeling very guilty about giving in. I attributed some of my weakness to being sick with a cold. Some people call that rationalization.
I may have been weak today but I won't give up. I have got to get my blood sugar down. I refuse to go on diabetes medicine and the only way is through diet & exercise. Not with Oreo cookies! Please pray for me.
