My mother lives with diabetes every day. It is a scary thing when someone you love has extreme highs or lows in their sugar. One thing I learned, is to keep a sugar pack on hand everywhere you go. If your blood sugar drops, and your teeth lock, a family member or friend can take the sugar and pour it around the inside of the bottom lip to bring the blood sugar levels up quickly.

Sometimes I think when we have a large number of pounds we want to lose we get discouraged by just a 5 or 10 pound weight loss. I like to think of etch 5 pounds as a bag of sugar. Doesn't seem like much but think about how tiring if you have to carry that 5 pound bag with you everywhere you go! Think how exhausting it would be to carry around two 5 pound bags of sugar all day! Give yourself credit for small accomplishments!9306
